Scout Post 2013

Stocksfield Scout Post

Local residents can use Scout Post to have cards delivered to addresses in Broomley, Hedley, Mickley and Stocksfield (with a NE43 postcode). Cards should be placed into the special Scout Postboxes located in the two Post Offices in Stocksfield. The final date for posting is 12 noon on the 21st of December. All we ask is a minimum donation of 20p per card.

The cards are then delivered by members of the Scout Group. Beavers, Cubs and Scouts can collect their allotted cards from Philippa’s house between 3pm and 7pm each Friday.

Remembrance Service

Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, leaders and their families joined the Remembrance Sunday service at the war memorial in Stocksfield today. As well as the Scout Group, there was the Deputy Lieutenant (representing the Queen), representatives from the Parish Council, the Army, Veterans, the British Legion, the Police and the Girl Guides Association. The service was led by Philippa Harpin.
