St George’s Day Parade 27th April 2014

importantOn Sunday 27th April it is the annual St George’s Day parade which this year is taking place in Ilkley.

All Scouts are asked to take part in the parade.  We will meet at 14:15 on the road at the back of Ilkley Town Hall.  The parade will then move through Ilkley to All Saints Church for the St George’s Day service.

Scouts must wear full uniform, including smart shoes.  Trainers must not be worn.  There is an award for the Group judged to be the smartest on parade.

Scouts will be dismissed after the church service.

We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday.

Summer Camp Update

Squirrel WoodThe next letter about Summer Camp has been published, and the second payment installment is now due.

Please visit the Summer Camp 2014 page of the website to download the second letter about Summer Camp.  In this letter we are encouraging all parents to consider giving hospitality to Dutch Scouts during their week in Ilkley.  This is an important part of the camp and the experience for our visitors, so please complete the form attached to the letter and tell us that you can host some Scouts.  Remember, if your children visited or will visit Holland with Scouts, they too stay with families.

Parents should also note that a separate letter will be issued to Parents of Scouts attending Summer Camp regarding the cost of the camp.

Finally, the second installment of £70 is now due.  If you have not made this payment, please do so as soon as possible.
