Last call for Halloween

This week it's your last chance to buy tickets for the Halloween Party we're holding at Silverwood Scout Camp on Saturday 30 October. If you'd like tickets and haven't paid for them yet, please bring your money to this week's meetings. Thanks.

And just a reminder that Cubs and Scouts are going to the fire station this week, instead of the usual meetings. Scouts are going tomorrow (Wednesday), and Cubs are going on Thursday. In each case we're meeting at the fire station for 7.15pm. The address is as follows:-

Cudworth Fire Station 
Tumbling Lane
S71 5SA

If you're stuck for a lift to the fire station we will have a limited number of places available in Leaders' cars. If you meet us at the Scout Hut at 7.00pm we'll do our best to get you there.

Fire Station Visits - Next Week

We've organised trips to the new community fire station at Cudworth next week, instead of the usual Cub and Scout meetings. The Scout visit will be on Wednesday 20 October, the Cub visit will be the following day on Thursday 21 October. In each case, we'll be asking parents to drop the Cubs and Scouts off at the fire station for 7.30pm. For anyone who can't get a lift we'll have a limited number of places in Leaders' cars so if you let us know, we'll try and get you there.

Christmas Panto - 22 December

A date for your diary: On Wednesday 22 December Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will be going to the evening performance of the Christmas Panto ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ at the Academy Theatre, Birdwell.  Tickets are £5 each. Mums and Dads, you can either drop your son/daughter at the theatre with the leaders, or you can stay for the performance, along with any other family members.

We'll be sending letters out about this next week, which we need back by the end of October so that we can reserve our seats. 

Summer Camp 2011 - Update

We've had an excellent response for next year's Summer Camp at Waddecar - as a result all places on the first two minibuses are taken.

We will consider taking a third minibus if there is enough interest. If you would like to go on camp, bring your reply slip and deposit, and we'll allocate you a provisional place. If we're not able to take a third bus we will, of course, return your deposit.

Harvest Festival - Beavers, Cubs and Scouts

Hi, thanks to all the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts that made the effort to brave the rain and attended the Harvest Festival this morning.


National Coal Mining Museum

23 Cubs and Scouts made the short trip to Overton near Wakefield on Saturday.  As well as enjoying the exhibitions, the adventure playground, the nature walk all of the group made the trip down the mine.  The tour guides were very informative and they made the day very enjoyable.

After handing in all the items that might cause an explosion, including my camera :-( we were adorned with a helmet and a miners light.

I couldn't take any pictures whilst on the underground  tour but here are some of the few snaps that we did manage to take. The cubs and younger scouts were already down the mine when the camera came out, sorry if we missed you!
