12 until 4pm at Margaret Catchpole PH, Cliff Lane, Ipswich

We would love as many family members as possible to join in the celebrations with us, as this event is on the exact date that the group was founded 90 years ago.


Looking for anyone associated with the group in its 90 years.

Have you been a leader with the group in the past?

Would like to see if the HQ has changed, or remained the same?

Have you been a Beaver, Cub, Scout or Venture within the group in the past 90 years #

and would like to revisit your scouting past.

If the answer is yes, contact Denise Bloomfield (GSL)  gsl@18thipswich.org.uk for further details

Dementia Presentation

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Friday 12th February 2016 at 7:30pm Jim Lowe from the Sue Ryder Care will be coming to the scout section to give a presentation to the scouts and leaders about Dementia with a focus on Alzheimer’s, Jim’s visit is to raise the awareness of Dementia to as many people as possible because the more people that know then the greater difference we can make. With that in mind I would like to openly invite any scout, cub and beaver parents/carers to come along because it many not affect many of us right now but may in the future and to know what help and advice there is could be a great comfort to many of us. 

If you would like to come then please let your section leader know, so I know what numbers are coming, if you see anyone else within the group then please pass on this open invite.

Many Thanks and Regards

Christopher Warren
