Meeting the Parents

Tonight leaders from all sections joined members of the Group Executive and parents at the Baptist Church to discuss the plans for the new hut.
A similar event will be held at the Scout Hut on Friday for parents of Scouts, and on Monday for Cubs’ parents.

New Look

I have updated the website theme to make it behave better on a range of devices (e.g. mobile phones and tablets). The layout is based on the WordPress TwentyFourteen theme.

I have also taken the opportunity to rationalise the content.
Let me know if you have anything you want to add!

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.

District Go Karting

The date has been changed, the provisional date is now Sunday 24th November, noon – 4pm. The cost remains £25.
Would the ten booked (1, 4, 8, 9, 13, 15, 16, 17, 23 & 25) still like to go and would any others like to attend the new date?

We apologise for this late change, sometimes waiting for more numbers to make it a viable option overlaps the booking date.
