Happy 100 Years to 1st Radlett

As some of you may be aware today(16th May) is the day that 100 years ago the Group was officially registered. We therefore today celebrate all 100 years of Scouting in Radlett. Some of you may have noticed marking this, we have had the Harpenden Building Society window with some historic photos and history marking this occasion.

Next week we are holding a Centenary Celebration Evening on Tuesday 21 May from 6.30-8.30 pm. There will be activities for the Beavers and Cubs lead by the Scouts and refreshments will be available for parents to come and hear what the group has been up to for the last year. We will hope to take a Group Photo marking the 100 Years to mark the occasion, as have done for previous anniversaries.
We have also been successful in being awarded a Hertsmere Community Infrastructure grant to do some work on our now over 50 year old building. We will be having the windows and doors replaced and new fire escape fitted at the rear of the building. This will much improve the headquarters for use over the years to come.
Now while this is all great news we do still have problems on the volunteer front.
We are still looking for more adult volunteers to maintain the Beavers and Cubs. We are very fortunate to have a great team leading the Scouts now, but the Cub pack will loose Sarah G in the autumn when she goes to university, meaning there is a risk this may close if we do not have enough adults to run weekly meetings.
Also the Group Executive committee which looks after the building as well as ensuring the group runs efficiently are looking for more members to start on the next chapter of the Group. Our Chair Sarah E has decided to stand down after 7 years involvement, we thank her for her service to the Group, but will now be looking for a replacement. There will be a short AGM at the Celebration evening if anyone would like further information please let us know.
