Apologies for any confusion over other events from the interest letter.

Cobras patrol night 06.06.17

Cobras is to plan activity for this night. It needs to be an activity that is scout based – not just a games night. You have been warned.

Please let Lucy know rough plan and anything that you need.



If you do not have a plan as a patrol on arrival then Leaders will run a night that will not be your first choice of fun.

Half-term-special Zombie Night

We need a turn out of at least 15 scouts to make this night a success. Therefore I am asking that yourselves or your parents text me to confirm you will be there by 6pm on Tuesday 30th.

If I do not have at least 15 confirmation texts by 6pm on Tuesday Scouts will be cancelled!!! – The Programme will continue as planned the following week with Cobras patrol night.

Survival Skills Activity Badge

We will be making fire this Tuesday. Please bring:

  • Dry kindling and dry bigger wood
  • Penknife
  • A good attitude

We will be meeting down at the hut. Full uniform still needs to be worn and please wear appropriate clothing for making fires outside, e.g. boots and unflammable trousers/shorts.

Also, as usual, the Tuesday after camp is cancelled – giving us all time to recover 🙂

Tues 18th April Cancelled

Hi all,

We won’t be meeting this Tuesday due to lower numbers and adult leaders needing a break 🙂

Also, sorry for any inconvenience or confusion with the Walled Garden event happening on the Sunday just gone – I was working all weekend therefore was not able to organise.

Please remember to bring in your shooting permission forms Tues 25th.

Have a good week off!
