Beavers & Cubs and Scouts

Click Here to view the 1st Much Hadham Scout Group website

It’s been a while since we’ve updated you all on what the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts have been up to and what we have planned on our calendar for the rest of this year. It’s looking very busy.

We managed to raise a massive £651.00 with our sponsored hike back in September. The scouts went bag packing to Sainsburys at Christmas and raised £313.00 in just 2 hours. We are planning an Easter bag pack as the Scouts did enjoy themselves!  We raised £270.00 last autumn by way of hiring out the scout hut for parties and drama rehearsals. We were also generously donated £500.00 by the Much Hadham Playgroup Ball Committee. To this end the fund raising helps us to subsidise all the extra activities we plan to do.

The Beavers had a successful trip out in January to the science alive workshops at Harlow Leisure Centre. We will be planning to take the cubs here in the summer. The cubs will also take a trip to the Harlow climbing wall, and we have just found a contact for some Karate demonstration and instruction for all 3 sections. We have also booked The John Warner pool for a day in July (Sunday 15th) for some of our cubs and scouts to try out Scuba diving. Places are limited so it will be offered to the older children first.

As you now know we have two camps booked this spring / summer.
 The whole group are camping at Gilwell Park (18th – 20th May ) the HQ of scouting, where we make use of the activities they have to offer there. These activities are expensive as they are run by qualified instructors, hence the reason why fund raising is so important. Thank you to those parents who have offered to come along to help, we will be having a meeting nearer the time to allocate jobs etc.
The scouts will be taking a trip to Snowdonia (2nd June – 6th June) staying at an old water mill, and hill walking in the surrounding Snowdonia national park. We have booked a day trip to explore underground tin mines with zip wires and waterfalls and underground lakes. All with professional instructors! 
All details of each activity will always be advised by a separate letter.
As we have so much happening this year, we have planned a family BBQ at the scout hut on Thursday 28th June at 6.00pm to show a short film show of what your children have achieved this year and get together before we finish for the summer. The children will certainly enjoy showing you this.

I would just like to say thank you for all the hard work that our leaders and our committee put in and without whom we could not give our children these great opportunities. I would also like to thank all the parents that come along to support us in helping at our meetings.

If you, like our leaders, enjoy a sense of adventure and would like to become involved in helping at either Beavers, cubs or scouts you would be most welcome and in the first instance give me a call, alternatively we are desperate for some more committee members to support the behind the scenes work that is vital and to share the load. Again please get in contact with myself or our chair Katie Dowse on 01279 841058.
