Crown Pool – Monday 10th December 2012

Dear Parent / Guardian,

We are planning to take the cubs to Crown Pools on Monday 10th December 2012. This is due to the Christmas Post being sorted in the Scout Hut on the Monday night.

The cost of this evening will be £2.60 per cub. We will meet in the Foyer at 6:30pm and be ready to go in at 6:45pm. All cubs must be in full uniform. We will need some parental help for this session please. Each cub will need a £1 coin for a locker.

Please return the slip below, and indicate if your child will or will not be coming to Crown Pools.

There will be no meeting at the H.Q. that evening.

Please be at Crown Pools to collect your son / daughter at 8:45pm.

Scout – Christmas Post 2012

Dear Parents and Supporters of the group.

This is sincere plea for help from you all for this year’s Scout Christmas Post.

The dates have been up on the notice board in the foyer, for parents to put their names up, to volunteer to help sort the post from Tuesday 4th December (after Beavers) and every week day evening through till 13th December. The HQ will be open for sorting every evening from 6.30pm.

I understand from Leaders that not all sections have met at the hut, since these lists have been available.

We cannot manage this huge to commitment without everyone’s help. We desperately need help with sorting and delivering.

Therefore I would ask you to contact DENISE or JOHN on this Email address to volunteer your time and support the group please.

The Group does expect all parents to help and take part with this major fund raising effort, last year we raised over £1300 for the 18th Group Funds.

Please, don’t wait for a phone call from John or myself to get you to help, Volunteer First !!!

The more people that come to help the quicker we can get it sorted.

There are 8 other groups involved in the Ipswich Scout Post and we can’t let those groups down and not do our bit.

Many Thanks

Denise and John

18th Ipswich Scout Post Organisers
