Census 2021

  |   By


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

   |   By


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.

Thank you to all who attended the 2019 AGM for 2nd Southwick Scout Group.

Thanks you to the Cubs and Scouts for their entertainment!

The New DC, Cameron, speaking to the AGM.

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.

Census 2019

   |   By


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!
