January 2017 General News

We said goodbye at the end of last year to Alan after 7 years as a leader. Thank you to him for his support over the years and all the other leaders for their continued support.
We are still seeking more leaders as the Scout Leaders are intending to leave at the end of the summer term, which would mean the Scout troop may close if we do not get the support needed. Other sections will need more support and we still have a huge waiting list and would love to be able to offer Scouting to more children. We are planning a meeting for people interested in knowing more on Saturday 4 February. More details to follow.

We have struggled to get support for a number of events in 2016, even getting parents willing to support our fundraising Quiz Night. This was a success but would have been better if more current parents had attended, rather than largely leaders and committee members and their friends. So here are the future / provisional dates to add to your diary.
