April 2015

Summer term already – please remember to pay £15 subs for this half term!

Saturday April 25th is the day for the St.George’s Day Parade in Hinckley. For the first time in many years, our Group is leading the parade, so please ensure your child attends. As an extra incentive (in case the hour of leading the parade is not enough!) we will be having a short party after the parade & church service finishes.

In the evening of May 13th we will be holding a social event for parents & leaders – drinks, nibbles & skittles at the Stoke Golding Club, from 7:30pm. The first half-hour or so will include the Group’s AGM – when you can hear more about what all the sections have been up to in the last year, and plans for the coming year.

The Cubs have two exciting camps in June – as well as the usual County Camp for the older ones, we also have a weekend activity camp for all the Cubs.

The Scouts are hoping to race again in the Soapbox Derby in Hinckley in July.

Finally, after many years of losing our members when they are too old for Scouts, we are working hard to set up our own Explorer Unit to cater for the 14-18 year olds. We really need some more leadership help – please let us know if you would like to get involved.
