Happy New Year to all our members and here’s to another active year for the Group.
Subscriptions are now due for the current term. Leaders usually email out the Subs Form to our members parents, but you can also download the form from this website (link top right) and we have paper copies available in the Scout Hall.
We would be grateful if parents can make sure their child’s subscription is paid by no later than the 31. January 2016.
Apologies for being a little late with our 2016 camp details. It’s taken a little longer than expected.
For our 2016 adventure we are planning a week long camp at a site we haven’t used before, it’s called Beaudesert Park and its located in Staffordshire. The site is a giant 132 acres in size and is used by Scout Groups and other youth organisations. We have booked the Lodge, which will provide comfortable indoor accommodation during our stay.
There are a wide range of activities on site including: Climbing, Raft Building, Pedal Go Karts, Low Ropes Course and many more, which we will be taking part in.
We also intend to do plenty of off site visits too, those we are planning include: Alton Towers, RAF Cosford, Black Country Museum and Waterworld.
Full details here.
Over the weekend of the 10. – 11. October 2015, Cubs and Scouts from the Group walked the Bayr Ny Skeddan (Herring Way) from Peel to Castletown, a distance of about fifteen miles. The Cub Scouts hiked over two days, stopping at the Round Table on the Saturday afternoon and starting again on the Sunday morning. The Scouts completed the hike in just one day. Well done to all those who took part.
We have added a new feature to our website, which shows the badges our members have gained and are currently working on. The information is always up to date as it takes the information directly from Online Scout Manager which most of our Sections use. No personal Information is shown other than a surname and initial for each member. At the moment we only have one Section active (Phoenix Scout Troop) but hopefully our other Sections will soon join in.
You can access the Badge Records in the top menu or by clicking here.
