Winter Term 2014 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Martin Hervey   

We would like to welcome the new Cub Scouts that are joining us; I’m sure they will enjoy themselves and become valuable members of our pack.

We have achieved 8 activities from the Essex Challenge.  Well done to everyone who attended the sessions.  We have planned another 4 for this term completing all 12 by the end of the year.

We implemented a parent rota last half term which seemed to work well. Please ensure when you child’s name appears on the programme you are available to help. If you are unavailable to help on your allocated date, will you please rearrange a new date with the other parents.  It is important that we maintain the parent / child ratios for all activities in order that they can take place.  If you have other children it is not a problem to bring them.

Please note that on Sunday 19th October, we have Harvest Festival and the Thriftwood Cub & Brownie Day / Harvest Festival.

  • We will be attending the Harvest Festival Parade and Service at St. John’s Church at 10:00am and then when the service finishes we will be going to the Thriftwood Fun Day, which runs until 4:30pm.
  • Please bring Harvest Festival donations to the scout hall between now and the 15th. As mentioned in my earlier email we would like the Cubs themselves to pay for these small donations, for example from their pocket money or by doing odd jobs around the home, this will go towards badges.
  • Please let us know if your child would like to attend the Thriftwood Fun Day – the cost is £9, places are limited and must be booked in advance by the 1st October so please let me know via email or Graham via telephone before next Wednesday whether your child wants to attend and bring payment next Wednesday, 1st October.


Thank you for your continued support.

Graham, Lawrence, Martin, Ryan & Taylor
