Chair's Report & Radlett Festival 2017

posted 16 May 2017, 04:49 by 1st Radlett Scouts

Dear All

Thank you to everyone who attended our Celebration Evening last week, as you would have heard from our Chair we need to do more fundraising to enable us to do improvements to our Headquarters which is now 50 years old. A copy of her report for those who were unable to attend is attached to this post.

If anyone has an ideas for fundraising we would love to hear from you and we could do with a couple of extra people on our committee to run fundraising events.

Our first opportunity to raise funds is at the Radlett Festival on Sunday 11 June where we will joining forces with the Guides to run the refreshment tent. We need lots of volunteers to run this from 12 noon to 5 pm, as well as donations of large and small cakes preferably homemade. Your child should bring a letter home from their meeting asking for help and there is a sign up sheet on the door to the hall for you to add your name too.

If your employer can match funds to help us raise more then we would love to hear from you as well.

We also need some adults to help erect and take down the mess tent on the day, we usually need it up at 9am and take it down at 5.30pm and many hands make light work.

As you will see from Sarah’s report there is a real chance that the Scout troop will close at the end of term if we do not sufficient numbers of volunteers for it to continue. Please help with spreading the word.

Finally is anyone involved in the group a surveyor as would like to plan future works on the building and would appreciate the input of a surveyor.

on behalf the Group Executive committee

Celebration Evening

Dear All
Thank you to the leaders who helped at the St Georges Day event yesterday and it was nice to see all of those who came and enjoyed the afternoon. But it was the case that we had a small turnout from our group, which we were disappointed with since this is one of the dates we ask all members to attend. The leaders are all volunteers and give up their time to run events for your children and it is disheartening that all the hard work is only appreciated by a few.
This Wednesday (26th April) we have our Celebration Evening when all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and their parents/carers and siblings are invited to an entertaining evening to celebrate Scouting in Radlett over the last year. We expect to see most of you there for a fun evening with refreshments and an opportunity to find out more about the Scout Group. The event is at Kent Lodge from 6-7:30pm incorporating a short AGM and marking 50 years of Kent Lodge. There will fun games and activities for the Beavers and Cubs led by the Scouts.  As last year there will be small charges for some games and the refreshments, including a small barbecue and wine or soft drinks, as a fundraising opportunity. There will also be a cake sale, so please do bring a cake for the sale. The leaders will be present but will be unable to supervise all children.

St George's Day

posted 16 May 2017, 04:37 by 1st Radlett Scouts

Dear All

I hope you have had an enjoyable Easter break, this weekend is St Georges Day (23 April) and along with all Scouts in the country we will be celebrating this day with a District event. Instead of the usual parade along the streets of the district and church service this year we will be having an activity afternoon at Well End and all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and their parents are invited to do a variety of activities.

The afternoon will start with a small parade from the parking area to the flagpole for some presentation of awards and badges, before a short camp fire and then the activities. Refreshments will be available for a donation.

We will be meeting at Well End Activity Centre at 2.50pm ready to start at 3pm and the afternoon finishes at 5pm.

As sections are not meeting this week, it would be useful to have an idea of numbers, so if you are attending please can you reply to this email with numbers of children and adults attending.

Thank you, hoping to see many of you on Sunday

1st Radlett Scouts Adult Volunteers Needed

posted 8 Feb 2017, 10:18 by 1st Radlett Scouts   [ updated 8 Feb 2017, 10:18 ]

The First Radlett Scout Group urgently need more adult volunteers. We are holding an open meeting for people to learn more about what is involved in being a volunteer and to meet some of the current Scout leaders and members of the Executive Committee, who will be able to answer questions, provide details about how the scout groups work, the different ways in which you can volunteer and give you further information about the rewards of being involved.

Date: 4 February 2017

Time: anytime between 11:00am – 12:00 pm

Place: Scout Headquarters, Scrubbits Park Road

Unless we can recruit new volunteers there is a real danger that some of the groups will close in the summer. If we get enough volunteers there is even a possibility that we could open another Cub, Beaver or Scout group. We have many children on the waiting so please do come along to find out more!

If you are unable to come along on 4th February, but would like to know more please contact the Group Scout Leader, Jackie on info@1stradlettscouts.org.uk

Holocaust Memorial Day Event

posted 25 Jan 2017, 05:29 by 1st Radlett Scouts   [ updated 25 Jan 2017, 05:29 ]

Thursday 26th January 2017 6pm, The Radlett Centre

Hertsmere’s Holocaust Memorial Day Event takes place on 26th January this year, and the Scouts have been invited and asked to help. It is a time for everyone to pause to remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. On this day, we can honour the survivors of these regimes and challenge ourselves to use the lessons of their experience to inform our lives today.
 
This is a time when we seek to learn the lessons of the past and to recognise that genocide does not just take place on its own, it is a steady process which can begin if discrimination, racism and hatred are not checked and prevented.  We are fortunate in the UK, we are not at risk of genocide.  However, discrimination has not ended, nor has the use of the language of hatred or exclusion.  There is still much to do to create a safer future and Holocaust Memorial Day is an opportunity to start this process.
 
The day brings together the diverse strands of our communities to commemorate the day in our neighbourhoods.  This is a real demonstration of how lessons of the past can inform our lives today and ensure everyone works together to create a safer, better future.
 
Local authorities are at the heart of the community and have a vital role to play in commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day.
 
The Mayor, Cllr Pete Rutledge, would like to invite you to take part in Hertsmere’s Holocaust Memorial Day Event being held on Thursday 26th January in Radlett.  The event will begin with a candlelit parade from the Radlett Railway Station Car Park at 6.00pm, which will walk through Watling Street to The Radlett Centre, where a ceremony will take place to include videos, a speaker, speeches and musical performances.
 
We have been asked to help set up and steward with the event starting at 5:15pm. The Scouts already been asked but if there are any more volunteers please let Jackie know on info@1stradlettscouts.org.uk.  If otherwise you would like to take part in the parade and/or the ceremony, please e-mail mayors.secretary@hertsmere.gov.uk stating: Full name, Address, Telephone number and E-mail address. Allocation will be made on a first come, first served basis.
