St George’s Day Parade

I would like to remind all sections that it is St George’s Day Parade this Sunday 21st April.

This is the most important date in the Scouting calender, a time when all sections and groups come together to renew their scout promise.

I would expect all sections to be well represented, in full and correct uniform please.

The 18th Ipswich should be leading this parade this year, a Scout from our group is carrying The St George’s Flag.

We have also been asked for Scouts to do the readings at the service.

All the Group will meet @ Garrison Lane, Car Park @ 2pm as Cub Camp has been cancelled due to insufficent numbers.

Please be @ Garrison Lane to collect your child from 3-45pm.

18th Ipswich Easter Themed Group Camp – Fri 15th to Sun 17th March 2013

The Thriftwood Camp was a massive success.

The weather was not great (lots of mud!) but it didn’t affect the activities that we did or the fun had by all. We had 13 Scouts, 19 Cubs attend for the whole weekend and then 5 Beavers on the Saturday for the day.

Five of our Explorers attended to assist with the camp and they were all an asset as they helped with all of the activities.

We did a variety of activities including rifles, inflata Bull, cresta run, pedal cars, 3D maze, water walkers and climbing, just to mention a few.

The help of the catering team that included Denise, Colin, Michael, Teresa and Sue was fantastic. They provided an excellent service to everyone and the food was brilliant.
