As always seems to happen - things change! We have now had a proposal from Nottinghamshire County Council that could see us leasing the whole of Wykeham House from them (ie the prt presently used by the Group plus the part previously used for the Young Peoples' Centre). This could be very advantageous. On the face of it the space and facilities available would meet our needs and the suggested costs look promising. There remains a lot to discuss and agree and the Group Exec will be fully involved, but with luck and a fair wind we could end up in a dedicated Scout HQ sometime (early?) next year.

The Group AGM (with free BBQ) was held at Hollygate Scout Camp on Wednesday 15th July. Unfortunately it was not well attended - 13 Leaders; 3 Group Exec members; 9 parents; and 1 other. There are something like 250-300 parents involved in the Group; a turnout of 9 is a little disappointing.

On the positive side we did get a couple of extra volunteers for the Group Exec (including a new Group Secretary) - thank you Elizabeth Markwick and Nicola Beech.

We'd still welcome some more members for the committee; especially a volunteer for the role of Group Chair. Please get in touch!
