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.

We are still waiting for the County Council to decide what they are doing with the Youth Centre and hence with Wykeham House. It's getting a little irritating to not know what's likely to happen. After all in the worst case they could be throwing us out soon and time is getting short! We would much rather stay where we are and take over the building if they want to get out. But it seems that making decisions is not one of their strengths.

We'll up date you on this when we can.

The Gemini Cub Pack are collecting Sainsburys Active Kids Vouchers, if anyone has (or collects) any that they have no use for the Pack would be very pleased to have them.

Although our plans for renovating the fire station barn have come to a dead end we still need to do something to provide a dedicated Scout HQ in Bingham and this will cost a significant sum. We have therefore decided to continue with the "Buy a Brick" scheme that we started recently. All funds raised from this scheme will be placed in a ring-fenced building fund.

Everyone who made a donation before the barn proposals fell through has been asked if they wish their donation to be returned or placed in the new fund.

Arrangements are well underway for Group Camp (GC14). If you have put your/your son/daughters' name down for this and haven't had the letter giving details of what time to arrive etc you must get in touch asap because someone has made a mistake and we don't want anyone missing out.

If you have had the letter and haven't yet paid the balance of the camp fee or haven't returned the health form - these are now late! Please do something about it urgently. Surprisingly the form is more important than the money. No form, no camp, no exceptions.

And don't forget to let us know (urgently) if any campers are vegetarians (or have other special dietary needs) if we don't know we can't do the right shopping.
