Please think about doing your online shopping via the link on the right.The Shop2fundraise shopping portal provides links to many of the major online retailers. By connecting to them via the portal the Scout Group gets a small percentage of every purchase made. It doesn't cost you a penny extra but puts a few extra pounds in our fundraising pot.

Met with the County Council on 5th August. They have confirmed that Toothill want the youth centre part of the building. NCC will retain "our" part and will lease it to us. Lots of details to be worked out including repair resonsibilites, duration, costs, services etc. These will be negotiated over the next weeks and a formal draft lease put to the Group Executive Committee in due course.

The school are however insisting that we remove our stores container. We can't do this immediately (as they would prefer) as we can't get a suitable vehicle close enough due to the school's building works and the associated site compound. We won't be able to put it off forever however and we need to find a suitable alternative location as a matter of urgency.

Discussions/negotiations continue and more information will appear here as it becomes available.

Group Camp next year will be at the Nottinghamshire County Camp - this will mean a different weekend to the one on which we have traditionally camped. Instead of the May Day bank holiday the camp will take place over the late May bank holiday weekend. The County have yet to announce details so we cannot yet confirm whether the camp will commence on the Friday evening (22nd May) or the Saturday morning (23rd May) - either way it will finish on Monday 25th May. The venue has also not yet been announced, but it will be somewhere in Nottinghamshire.

Further details will be published as they become available.
