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.
The numbers are in, and I’m pleased to announce that all sections are doing well.
The Beaver numbers are still increasing, and the Scouts number are also going up. Cub numbers are static at the moment, which is credit to the Cub Leaders, as we’ve had a dip in young people numbers coming up from the Beaver Colony, but we have seen an increase in “new” young people coming into Cubs. I predict that Cubs will be in the twenties soon! Well Done!
We have also gained a new Assistant Cub Scout Leader!
At the beginning of December, the Cubs and Scouts helped with collecting money for the Adur East Lions Club. This involved walking round the streets of Southwick with Santa and his slay, collecting money for the various charities around Southwick. whilst the Beavers visited the Romans Nursing Home in Southwick, and sang a few carols.
There was a good turn out on both events
Closer to Christmas , we did our annual Bag Packing and collection buckets, this time at Marks & Spencer’s in the Holmbush Centre.
We did exceptionally well in our ten hours, and both the Leaders and Committee are very pleased with the young peoples efforts.
Last Wednesday (27th) we held our annual Christmas fun walk, and this year we were lucky with the weather
We had a good turn out of friends and family of the group, enjoying a calorie burning walk, whist having some fun.
A BIG THANK YOU for all those who have supported our events over the last month. It’s much appreciated.
