Meetings Suspended Again

1st Marown

Meetings Suspended

We are sorry to report that meetings are suspended until the end of January – but we will be back as soon as possible with more fun and adventure..

Movie Night

1st Marown Movie Night

End of term Movie Night

At the beginning of the Autumn term, we asked the sixers to give us a list of the activities they wanted the leaders to organise, one of which was a Movie Night (complete with popcorn and drinks!), So this week, that is exactly what we are doing.

The night will start at our normal time of 6:30, but will end a little later at 8:30.

The venue will be at Suchi’s house in Crosby, but if you don’t know where that is, please contact one of the leaders.

The night promises to be a great fun-filled experience just before Christmas, and we are looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Our thanks go out to Suchci and his family for organising this.

Suchi has prepared lots of snacks, so probably best to skip tea!

Supersplash 2020

Scout Supersplash 2020

This week’s meeting will be at Western Swimming Pool  where we will be working on our ‘Swimmer’ badges, stages 1, 2 and 3.

Our session is from 6:30 – 7:30 so can you please be there for 6:15, so we can start on time.  Please be in uniform.

The requirements are pretty basic, so we expect that everyone will gain at least one stage.

The session will also allow us to choose our teams for the ‘Scout Supersplash’ to be held the next day,  Saturday 14th November 4:00 – 6:00pm at Northern Swimming Pool. This is an all-Island fun event where winning is more a case of fun, rather than skill.
