Census 2021

HI All,

Thank you to all those who responsed to our request regarding continued memebrship of the Group for this coming year. This is an odd year, with some odd questions being asked.

We have to report our numbers to The Scout Association every year, and normally the Section Leaders have a good idea of who has been coming to the evening activities and therefore the job of collating these “Census” figures is relatively pain free. This time with sporadic face-2-face meeings and continued “digital” meetings, getting an acturate number was a chanllenge, hence our question to everyone.

The Numbers are in and as expected they are low.

Again, thank you all for your continued support in these trying times, and we all hope normal scouting will resume as soon as it is safe to.

Kind Regards

Andrew
Group Scxout Leader

Scouts suspended!

   |   By

Dear Parents,

CORONAVIRUS and Scouting

It is with much regret that the leaders and I have decided to suspend Scouting at 2nd Southwick Scout Group for the time being.

This is in accordance with Government “Everyone should avoid gatherings and crowded places”

We will readdress the situation over the Easter period.

Please let other parents know, and please take care.

Census 2020

The numbers are in, and I’m pleased to announce that all sections are doing well.

The Beaver numbers have stabilized, with the Scouts numbers dropping slightly, but this following the trend of low Cubs numbers in previous years.

The. Cub numbers have increased which again is credit to the Cub Leaders

We have also gained a new Assistant Beaver Scout Leader!

Thank you to all those who took [part on the Remembrance Sunday service on Southwick Green on 10th November.

Back to Scouts…

   |   By

Both Beavers and Cubs restart this week (11th Beavers, 10th Cubs) with the Scouts starting last week.

Can I please remind you that Subs are due at the start of each term, and the there are various ways to pay (cash/cheque, or electronically)

Also please remind your young people about behavior at the meetings, and again remind them about bullying! It is not tolerated at all!

Section programmes will be handed out shortly and I can already see there are lots of exciting programme/activity ideas. Please help your leaders where you can, so if you spot a evening you think you can help, please contact the leaders, and come along.

Summer Camp 2019

   |   By

Looks like the Scouts had a great camp at Warren Farm.

Thanks to all the leaders for running the Camp, and a special mention to Nick, who took a tumble on the first Saturday whilst setting up the camp.

After a visit to A&E in Haywards Health, Nick was sent home with crutches and told to rest. Get Well soon NICK!
