May - District Update
I hope you all had a good Easter and you've not eaten too many chocolate eggs? This year we already have had a very successful St George's Day and parade, you should all be very proud of yourselves with all of the District on Parade! All sections very smart and well behaved. (Never know when the next Bear Hunt might happen)?
May brings with it warmer and dryer weather, so much of our scouting will be done outdoors. Great fun for all I hope. It's also the start of the AGM season so please let me know when and where yours will be I will try my best to attend, also you may wish to invite the ADC's who might be available to attend and by doing so SUPPORT THE IMPORTANT WORK OF OUR EXECUTIVES.
Our district AGM is on the 14th May, venue the Seafarers Mission down at the docks entrance. So please make every effort to attend and support your Districts window on our Scouting and it's also an opportunity to meet old scouting mates and talk about the fun past and the fun to come!
Lets not forget the Jamboree on the trail 10th May down at the Newport Wetlands, from about 10.30hrs = Great place to have a Beaver/Cub picnic after the trail has finished also don't forget this an opportunity to invite help and support from parents etc. they may in time become your sections new leaders. The SAS members might need some extra support so it's an opportunity for any Explorers who would like to help, please let the SAS know in advance, on the day you need to be there for 10.00hrs.
The Scouts are off on their bikes at the end of the-month with a cycle camp. Good luck chaps.
So where are the rest of you with the DC challenge? Come on still a small number of World Maps left so speak to your ADC Beavers / Cubs or the SAS team.
GO ON NOW and MAKE SURE YOUR SECTION DOESN'T MISS OUT!
