Coming Up


Nothing on the immediate horizon - we'd love some help and/or ideas.


Ongoing


Buy a Brick - we continue to sell “virtual” bricks as part of our building fund efforts. To buy a brick (or several bricks) you can download and print off a form here, or you can complete an online application here (we do not yet have a facility for making online payments). If you are a tax payer and are happy for us to collect Gift Aid on your donation please also complete and sign the Gift Aid declaration on the application form. This will enable us to claim, from the taxman, 25p extra for each £1 donated.


We are hoping to organise a date for a bag packing session at Morrisions, this is a good fundraiser and with a good attendance we can easily raise several hundred (towards a thousand) pounds for a busy half day.

As always we are on the lookout to recruit additional help. We need uniformed leaders in most sections, also less regular helpers and people to assist with recording keeping, administration and finances in some of the sections. Now is a good time to volunteer, you'll not be thrown in at the deep end and there's enough cover in all of the sections be be able to give you lots of help and guidance. Think about volunteering now while we are not desperate but would still be delighted to have you join us.


We also need more volunteers on the Group Executive committee and ocassional help with fundraising. Please get in touch and have a chat.


We have finally put our plans in place to open a third Beaver Colony to cope with the large number of young people on the waiting list - we still need more help but we have the beginnings of a team.


Perhaps becoming a volunteer for one of these roles would suit you? Don't forget that if a parent volunteers for a full leadership role (and sticks at it for a while) we guarantee a place in the Group for any of their children (they don't necessarily have to be in the same section - ie a parent could volunteer with Cubs or Scouts and their child could join the Beavers).


If you don't fancy helping us maybe you know someone else who might? Volunteers don't have to be parents, just 18 or more.
