Apple and Pear Day times

We will be meeting at The Walled Garden at 12.30 and collection will be at 3pm. If you need to leave earlier or if parents want to join us that is fine, just keep me informed. Neckers are to be worn along with clothes appropriate for gardening and the weather.

Will be a fun session!

Apple and Pear Day – This Sunday 15th!

This Sunday the scouts are invited to help out at this fun event at the Walled Garden in Meersbrook park. Times are still tbc. 

At this event we help pick and press the apples. Who needs more! The more the merrier!

Advertising Scouting

This week we will be continuing the Creative Challenge Badge by producing our very own Scouting advert. This will be going on the website and on our Facebook page so lets do our best; as we always do!

The programme for this term is now also on here under ‘Programmes’. Please print off and stick it somewhere convenient for you to look at each week. Further details for each week will still be put up here. 

Otters patrol night and other reminders

This Tuesday it is Otters patrol night. Please have a plan for the night – ‘Be Prepared’. You are running the night. Please ask leaders for any help. 

Bonfire night ticket letters will also be going out this week. 

Other reminders:

  • Raffle/tombola prizes for bonfire night. These can be brought down each Tuesday evening we are at the hut before bonfire night. Furthermore, if any parents/ scouts would like to help out on bonfire night please talk to Lucy or Libby, Lynn, Jane and Sarah – our Executive Committee. 
  • The £6 deposit for The Great Escape Game Generation 1 (See previous post). This is the last chance to pay your deposit so that I can book the 4 rooms for our Christmas celebrations.  So far I have had 10 scouts pay and I need the other 18 to pay to make this night a success 🙂

Thanks, Lucy 

Chicken wire sculptures

This Tuesday we will be making chicken wire sculptures. 

Please bring gardening gloves with you to wear when handling the chicken wire to protect your hands. The better fit these are the easier it will be for you to handle the chicken wire.


The Great Escape Game Generation 1 deposit

For our Christmas celebrations on Tuesday 19th December, I have preliminarily booked 74th into the Avec building of The Great Escape Game. The building has 4 rooms:  

– Placebo
– Mad Scientist
– Homicide
– Alcatraz

See for more info. 

To make his booking secure we need to pay a deposit of £41.40 per room and as there are 28 of us we need all 4 rooms. I need £6 off each person by Tuesday 26th September 9pm. This deposit will also go towards the final cost of the rooms and 74th will cover that.

District Survival Camp Sat 23rd to Sun 24th

If I do not hear about teams by then 74th will not be attending the camp.
