Hi All, First of all, we’d like to apologise about the last minute cancellation of the Ice Skating Trip last Friday – the unexpected snowfall and freezing temperatures took us all by surprise and we didn’t want to take any risks, which meant the unfortunate cancellation of the trip – ironic how snow and ice prevented us from actually go ice skating (to quote a comment on Facebook :-)). On the plus side we’re rescheduling the Ice Skating Trip for Friday 6th January 2012 – if you’re able to attend the new date, can you please inform a leader as soon as possible so we can get it booked! Christmas Party – Thursday 22nd December 2011 To make up for the cancelled trip, we have been invited to join the Beavers and Cubs for a Christmas Party at the Scout HQ on Thursday 22nd December from around 18:30. Usual party games are occurring but with a Christmas twist – there may also be an amusing surprise on the evening! Again, if you’re coming along – can you please let us know as soon as possible so we can plan for the appropriate numbers. If you do plan on coming along, it’s non-uniform although you can come in Christmas fancy dress if you like! Christmas Pudding Walk – Tuesday 27th December 2011 We’ve had quite a bit of interest from the other sections regarding this plus some interest from within the Scout section too. It’s looking like we’ll meet at the Helsby Quarry Car Park at around 1pm – arriving in Elton for around 3:30pm – 4pm, having food (Hot Pot) at our ‘finishing’ venue at around 5:00pm. Again, if you’d like to attend the Pudding Walk then please let us know as soon as – we’ve made this one a bit easier as you can simply hop onto Facebook and ‘Attend’ our Event –http://www.facebook….48680231903691/ Finally – from all of us here at 1st Ince and Elton, we’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year!
