Future Beaver Vacancies

We now have a new Leadership team in place in Orion; Jenny Barber has stepped forward to take the reins as the Scout Leader, she will be assisted by Andy and Cathy who continue, and another new recruit, Cat Griffiths. Jenny has a lot of experience with Guiding and Scouting as a young person and a mass of outdoors experience, she is learning the skills of leadership. Cat is a parent who has stepped forward to help us. Both are very welcome & will, I'm sure, be great assets to the Group.

All over for another year. Thanks very much to those local businesses etc that have helped us by selling stamps and by having one of our post boxes. This year these were: the Natural Health & Therapy Centre, Eaton Place, Raw, Market Square, Bingham Town Council, Post News, Bowland Road, Bingham Bowls Club, and the WI.

We raised approximately £260 - a good sum, but way below what Radcliffe Scouts manage (again) - they consistantly raise in excess of £1000, we must find out how we can do better!

A reasonably successful event - a profit of £55.50 and a few more bricks sold.

Thanks to Dickie & the couple of Leaders (& their children) who were there to help. A big thank you to the 6 people who contributed cakes for us to sell - a shame we failed to persuade more of the 130 families in the Group to donate cake, if 20% had contributed we may have added £200 to our profits.

No sooner is one issue settled (see Orion above) than another comes along. The Leader at Perseus (Peter) has decided that he needs to leave due to changes at home. We will miss him and we are sorry to see him go, but of course family must come first.

We are fortunate that at the moment there are 3 Assistant Leaders in Perseus and they are happy to carry on running the Troop between them. So no immediate panic to do anything.
