Well, I don't know about you but September has sneaked up on us and it seems Facebook is filled with pictures of first days at school. It is an exciting time for many people, especially us at 1st Winnersh.
Today sees the first day of our new term and tonight we welcome our Monday night Beavers. There will be a mixture of old and new faces, both in Beavers and Leaders.
Last term we bid farewell to Monday night Beaver Leader Hawk as he embarked on a new adventure with his family in Leicestershire. You'll be pleased to know they have managed to work their way through lots of boxes and settled in nicely.
This term also sees the launch of our 2nd Cub Pack and the Cub team are very excited as 2016 celebrates Cubs 100th Birthday. There are lots of plans going on in the background so be sure to keep checking back for details.
Scouts have been busy over the Summer, with some of them completing their Expedition Challenge and earning their Chief Scout Gold award. Many congratulations and well done!!
For those who were with us last term, you will notice a few changes as our group continues to flourish.
Continuing Hawks wonderful work at Monday Beavers will be Neil, Dave and Andy who is joining us this term. Thursday night Beavers will be run by Neil, Hester and Sara.
Our Tuesday night Cubs will be run by Niki, Scott, Sophie and Mark. Wednesday night Cubs will be run by Helen, Carole and Neil. We will also have Patrick joining the Cubs team.
Scouts will be run by Roger, Scott, Niki and Becky. Matthew will be continuing with us as a young leader for Scouts and Bryony will be with us as and when University allows.
At a Group level, we also have Neil (GSL), Bosun (AGSL) and Doc (Skills Instructor), all of whom will continue to work with the group at all sections as needed and to support the leaders.
We are also very excited to be working with a few other parents, to bring them into the team and are always happy to hear from anyone interested in helping.
So for now, we shall leave you with a reminder of our meeting times;
Beavers - 17:45 - 19:00
Cubs - 18:30 - 20:00
Scouts - 19:30 - 21:00
Look forward to welcoming you all 🙂
