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.

Cub Camp

We have a provisional booking at Moor House Adventure Centre just outside Durham. We will be going from 3pm on Thursday the 29th of August to 10am on Sunday 1st September. See http://moor-house.org.uk/index.php for more details.

We will be camping and are planning a programme of exciting activities. This is a Scout activity centre so the activities are run by qualified staff. This will be our first time camping for four years and we are really excited about this and looking forward to teaching the cubs a range of new skills!

If your cub is interested in going the cost will be around £125 pounds. Can you please let John Walker know if your cub would like to go asap (email cub_leaders@1ststocksfieldscouts.org.uk).

In the past some parents have come along to support their cub. If you feel you may want to do this please let John know, if you do come along it would be great if you could muck in and lend a hand. The cost for supporters would be £4.50 per day plus food. You will need your own tent.

More details will follow.

New Website

This website has been created to provide an online focus for the Group. It should contain details of forthcoming events and information about its members. It is very much a work in progress.
