The idea of “Scout Scarf Day” on August 1 is that all active and former scouts are requested to wear their scout scarfs in public to make the “spirit of scouting” visible: once a scout – always a scout! In 2011 the day coincided with the World Jamboree in Sweden which was a perfect opportunity to show the close bond to all the scouts attending.
Of course, the scarf is only a symbol but a strong symbol for the scout promise and for our mission to leave the world as a bit better a place than we had found it.
Our Beavers are heading down to RAF Cosford for whats set to be an fun and exciting day at the Cosford Airshow.
It is one of the largest events in the West Midlands and includes a packed flying schedule along with many other static exhibits, stalls, trade stands, military demonstrations and children’s entertainment.
Come along and join us for our Annual General Meeting which will be held at the HQ on Friday 10th May. Doors open at 18:30 for a 19:00 start.
The AGM is the perfect opportunity to see what we’ve been up to over the last 12 months and will include reports from section Leaders about the fun and adventure the young people have enjoyed over the past year, as well as details from the Executive Committee regarding the Group’s development, expenditure and finances and is also an open forum for yourselves to give your feedback to the Group.
We also hold the election of officers to the Group Executive Committee during the meeting. We’re always on the lookout for more volunteers to support a range of roles across the group, whether it’s supporting one of our sub-committees (fundraising or HQ) or the actual Executive Committee itself. We’re also looking for new adult volunteers to support our three sections. If you’re interested in getting involved, then our AGM is your chance to see the work involved and also offer your support.
We’d just like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who turned up to support our Macmillan Coffee Evening at Elton Community Centre this evening.
Your support and generosity has helped us raise a whopping £317, all of which will be going to Macmillan Cancer Support.Thanks to you, Macmillan can make even more of a difference for people facing cancer. Who knew a bit of cake could do so much good?
1st Ince and Elton Scout Group would like to invite you to our ‘Macmillan Coffee Evening‘ which is taking place on Tuesday 26th September from 18:45 – being held at Elton Community Centre to support Macmillan’s “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning“.
Family and friends of young people from all sections (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) are welcome to come along and help us raise some money for a great cause!
Your support could help give Macmillan nurses more:
Time to give medical help – You could ensure a Macmillan chemotherapy nurse can give vital treatment to one more cancer patient.
Time to give practical help – You could ensure a Macmillan nurse can help more people living with cancer to get the equipment and support they need to stay living in their own home.
Time to give emotional help – You could ensure a Macmillan nurse can talk to one more wife or husband to help them come to terms with what’s happening to the person they love.
Together we can make sure that no one faces cancer alone.
We’re holding our Coffee Evening earlier than the official date of Friday 29th September to allow us to fit around other local events and also our own sectional programmes.
