News from the exec...

The exec is still working hard, supporting and managing the fundraising activities for the group. A recent virgin vie night raised a small amount of funds that will support the forthcoming 'pig race night' on 20th November. This will be a family fun night with racing between fluffy pink pigs, a hot supper, a raffle and rather a lot of oink-oinks!
Everyone should also have come home from Beavers, Cubs, Scouts or Explorers with envelopes for recycling jewellery...however old or broken your items are it doesn't matter to us so please ask around at home, work or with friends and neighbours for any donations. If you don't have an envelope please speak to one of the leaders...
...speaking of which we are always in need of uniformed leaders or volunteers. It doesn't matter whether you can donate your time, your skills or your enthusiasm once a year or on a regular basis, it will help to support the group and give you a sense of personal satisfaction (I can vouch for that, having suddenly gone from being a scout and soon-to-be beaver mum, to exec member to group secretary in a very short space of time!!). Again, if you are interested but are a little shy of what your contribution may involve, please speak with one of the leaders or email via the contacts page.
Next exec meeting 11th November...hope to see you there! :-)
