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.

Still awaiting detailed proposals for a lease on Wykeham House from NCC - I believe it may be held up by negotiations between NCC and the Academy on the remainder of the building. NCC have confirmed however that even in the absence of a formal agreement at 30 Sept we will not be thrown out.

Discussions continue with the Town Council (and others) about a site for the stores container. Subject to details and final agreements this now looks likely to be on the Bingham Rugby Club site.

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.

Karen Brown, long serving Leader at Orion has decided to call it a day; she will be leaving at Christmas. This is sad news, Karen will be sorely missed; she has worked tirelessly over the years to provide Scouting to a significant number of young people. This means that we need to find a replacement. For a variety of reasons the existing assistant leaders in the Troop are not prepared/able to take on the role of section leader so someone must be found, and soon.

We well understand that not everyone wants to, or can, help; not everyone wants to make a regular commitment. But, without someone prepared to take on this formal Leadership role we will have a serious problem. Please get in touch with the GSL or speak to any of the Leaders in the Group if you want more information or think you could help.

We always need help elsewhere too.
