A short note as we make the run up to Christmas and New Year.
The Sainsbury Bag Pack was a great success and we thank all the scouts and cubs who turned up to support this. Big thanks to Lesley Mackay who arranged it and spent the most part of that weekend supervising the Bag Pack.
Remembrance Sunday parade was very well supported with 44 Beavers Cubs, Scouts and Explorers and Leaders in attendance. Readers for the lessons were recruited from all sections and did very well, considering the text was quite difficult!

The feedback on the AGM I have had from meeting parents collecting their youngsters at recent group nights was very positive. You liked seeing your youngsters in action and receiving their badges and awards.
Now this is where you can play your part..............
Race Night on the 17th November was financially OK but a dismal failure. Only five parents turned up to support it. We Leaders do need the oxygen of parental support. Your attendance at Fund Raisers and other social events helps us to a) get to know you b) you to get to know us and therefore between us to understand what your children require and what we think Scouting can do to help.
We are going to arrange a meeting for parents in the New Year when you can tell us what we should be doing to get more of your support. We need your support. Please attend.
