Hogmanay Back Pack and a Happy New Year! blog post
May I wish all our Young People, their parents and grandparents, and our 145th Leaders a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
The Bag Pack today was a great success and we thank all the Cubs, Scouts and Explorers who turned out to support this. Big thanks to our leaders who supervised the day.
A Grand total of £2116.52! Well done everyone!
This will go towards the 2014 Italy trip. You have already had a glimpse of the scenery from the picture on the website.
Summer Camp in Italy in 2014 (27th June - 5th July)
We have made a provisional booking with Acorn Travel Group for Villeneuve. The Acorn 'Village' Centre nestles in the shadow of Mont Blanc, surrounded by the splendour of the Gran Paradiso National Park, a lake, alpine river and abundant trees. The beautiful medieval town of Aosta is only seven miles away.
Huge choice of activities, including:-
Abseiling, Raft Building, High Ropes, Orienteering, Gorge Scramble, Canoeing, Kayaking, Rock Climbing, Fencing, Archery, Squeezing, White Water Rafting, Hill Walking
We will be camping in our own secure 'Village' with qualified instructors for all the activities, along with all meals provided including the cooking!
All our Scout Network, Explorers and Scouts (aged 10 ½ years + at the time of the Camp) can come.
This will include youngsters in Cubs now, who will be in Scouts by 2014.
Information meeting for you & your parents
Friday January 18th at 7:30 pm in the Hall.
See you all there.
