Preston & District Cubs Carol Service

Thursday 2nd December 2010
St Walburge's Church

Commencing at 7pm
This week at Beavers, we will be making Christingles ready for the District Christingle Celebration Service next week.

The service will be held on Monday 6th December at Fulwood Methodist Church (opposite the Withy Trees). We will meet on the car park behind the Church (Highgate Avenue) at 6:15 so that we can take our seats in church on time.

Beavers should be in full smart uniform, including scout or school trousers and school shoes.

Parents are very welcome to stay for the service or collect their children from the car park afterwards at around 7:30pm.

During the service there will be a collection, to be divided between Fulwood Methodist Church and Derian House.

Four Scouts made this film to showcase what they do in their communities. The film was premiered in London on 1 November 2010 at an event to thank the individuals, companies, trusts and foundations who support Scouting in many ways. Without them we couldn't do all the things you see in this video.

How could you help Scouting?

Sat, 4 December, 11:45 – 16:00 @ St Anthony's Church

Once again, we have been asked to help at the SVP's Party for the parish's older people.

We are looking for older cubs and scouts to help at the party by:
  • assisting people into mass;
  • assisting people to the social centre;
  • serving drinks and food;
  • playing bingo on behalf of the less able
This is really appreciated by the people that attend and is a great opportunity to put something back into the community.

Please speak to your leader if you would like to help
The District's annual swimming gala will take place on Saturday 13th November at West View Leisure Centre

The Cubs' event is first followed by the Scouts.
