It is nearly Christmas and the Crofton Scout Group is busy getting into the festive spirit. We have a trip for the Beavers to meet Santa down the Mine (I wonder if he will find his way out in time for the most important year in his calendar?) and for the Scouts to Xscape. The Cubs section will be looking forward to joining the Beavers at the annual Christmas party which is always great fun.
And then the Leaders will take a well earned break in readiness for the New Year and planning even more great activities for the sections to take part in.
The executive committee will be continuing to support the running of the group and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new Chairperson Jacqui Lund, whose commitment and enthusiasm is always very much appreciated and valued. Welcome too to our new exec committee members, Claire, Bianca, Dee and Richard.
We always welcome new members to the group although there may at times be a waiting list for certain sections; this is a testimony to how well the group is run and how popular it is with the young people of Crofton, Sharlston and surrounding area.
We are currently looking to recruit some willing volunteers to coordinate the fundraising that we have to do in order to keep our group financially viable. If you are interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wishing you all a very merry christmas and happy new year
Yours in scouting and on behalf of Crofton Scout Group
