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!

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!

AGM – 7pm 5th June

   |   By


Dear Parents/friends,

You are invited to the 2nd Southwick Group Barbeque & AGM that will take place in the Head Quarters on Wednesday 5th June. All family and friends are invited. Please arrive at the hall before 7:00pm – the meeting will start at 7:00pm sharp.

As part of the AGM we want to fill you in on what has happened over the past year and what we would like to do. Your thoughts and ideas are very welcome.

We always need the support of more parents in the Group and it’s a great opportunity to be part of the Scouting movement and do something good in your local community. Sadly our Group Secretary is unable to continue with us as her son is playing for a major football team, so we require a group Secretary, can you help 4 – 5 meetings a year taking notes and putting your thoughts forward, also parent representatives from Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to put their thoughts on how we progress in the future.

After the AGM business, there will be Burgers and Sausages together refreshments and cakes, donations welcome.

We all look forward to meeting you.

Mark Dooley

Chair of Second Southwick Scout Group.
