With the introduction of the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), HQ have developed a new e-learning module that is compulsory for all adults to complete. The deadline for existing adults to complete this training is 31/12/2018.

If you are a new leader / executive, this is now part of your Getting Started training which must be completed within 5 months of your appointment.

Once the e-learning has been completed, please show the certificate to your Training Adviser or send a copy to your Local Training Manager so your Compass profile can be updated accordingly.

The e-learning can be found by clicking this link.

18th Ipswich – Campfire Carol Service

Dear Parent / Guardian,

We are planning to take the Beavers / Cubs / Scouts to Hallowtree on Thursday 6th December 2018.

There will be no meetings at the H.Q. on Monday 3rd, Tuesday 4th or Friday 7th December, this is due to the Christmas Post being sorted in the Scout Hut.

We will meet at the Hallowtree in the Main Car Park at 18:25.

Your son/daughter will need to bring a waterproof in case of bad weather. Beavers / Cubs / Scouts need to be in full uniform.

Please be at Hallowtree, Main Car to collect your son / daughter at 20:00.

Many Thanks
18th Ipswich Scout Group
