The AGM will be held at the Scout Hut in Guessburn on Wednesday the 21st October, 7.00 – 8.00 pm.
All parents are warmly invited to attend the Group AGM – it will be a very quiet meeting if you don’t!
Badges will be awarded to Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
This is your chance to talk with the new leaders, find out what’s happening about the hut, meet the man who removed the bees and more!
The Beaver Colony managed to pick a dry evening for their annual walk on the final meeting of this Scouting year. It was a sponsored walk, raising money for the new hut. At the end the Beavers said farewell and thank you to their leader Carole, who is retiring this summer. Happily Matthew has volunteered to take over the Colony.

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 and we ask for a minimum donation of 20p per card. Collections start on the 1st of December. The final date for posting is 12 noon on the 19th of December.
The cards are delivered by members of the Scout Group. Beavers, Cubs and Scouts can collect their allotted cards from Philippa’s house (25 Cade Hill Road) between 3pm and 7pm each Friday.
The Beavers recently had a visit from local folk group the Stocksfield Stompers. It was a great night which the Beavers really enjoyed – they have never been so quiet! We heard music from Northumberland and from Poland which fits in well with the work for the Global Challenge badge. Many thanks to the very talented young Stompers, an inspiration to us all.
