For immediate attention – Fire Station tour this Friday

exclamation markGreat news.  We have been able to secure a tour around Ilkley Fire Station this Friday, 27th November.  Please see below for details of the meeting.

This is a great opportunity to learn about the Fire Service and how they help keep all of us in the Ilkley area safe and respond to emergencies.  Not only is it a great thing to know about but it will also contribute towards the Fire Safety Badge.

Please meet at the Ilkley Fire Station at the normal meeting time of 19:15.  Scouts should be collected from the Fire Station at the normal closing time of 21:15.  Full uniform must be worn.

Winter Camp – Kit List

If your son or daughter is going to the Winter Camp then take a look at the suggested kit list.

Camping in winter is a little different to the spring or summer, with the weather generally wetter or colder – or both.  We have prepared a suggested kit list with ideas of the personal equipment you may want to take.  It is really important that you have full waterproofs and warm clothing.  A warm hat and gloves and plenty of layers are good things to take, and remember your walking boots and thick socks.  There is also less daylight so remember your torch and spare batteries.

Kit List – Weekend camp (winter)

Remembrance Day Service

PoppyThis Sunday 8th November the Scout Troop will be taking part in the Remembrance Day Service and Parade in Ilkley.  Please see below for details.

The service and parade are an important event in our annual calendar, and we ask that all Scouts make the effort to attend as we remember those men and women who have given their lives in war and conflict.

We will assemble in Whitton Croft Road, behind the Town Hall, at 14:15.  The parade will move down Wells Road and The Grove followed by a service in the Memorial Gardens.  Scouts will be dismissed from the Memorial Gardens after the service at around 15:40.

Full and smartly presented uniform must be worn by Scouts, including smart school shoes and no trainers.  Please also consider supporting The Poppy Appeal by wearing a poppy.  A collection is usually taken during the service.
