The Annual General Meeting of 7th Fulwood (St Anthony's) Scout Council will take place on Sunday 11th November at 11:30am in St Anthony's Annexe (immediately following church parade).

What's it for?
The AGM has 2 main purposes:
1) To report the group's financial standing and activities over the last year.
2) To elect an executive committee

What is the executive committee?
The exec committee is the management body of the scout group.  It is similar to the governing body of a school or a company's board of directors.  It meets 5 times a year, on a Wednesday evening, for about an hour and a half.  The executive is responsible for:

  • the maintenance of the Group’s property and equipment
  • the raising of funds and the administration of the Group’s finance
  • the insurance of persons, property and equipment
  • Group public occasions
  • assisting with the recruitment of Leaders and other adult support   

What roles are there?
As well as uniformed leaders, we need the support of parents to fill a number of roles.  Under the scout association's rules, these roles cannot be filled by uniformed leaders. This helps ensure that you, the parents, have a say in how the group is run and supports the leaders.  Elections are for a 12 month period and the following roles are available:

  • Group Chair (1) - nominated by Group Scout Leader
    • Chairs meetings and represents the group
  • Group Secretary (1)
    • Takes minutes at meetings and sends some group correspondence
  • Group Treasurer (1)
    • Manages the group accounts and financial transactions
  • Elected members (4-6)
    • represent the parents of their child's section at meetings
    • support the group as agreed at meetings
How does this affect me?
Firstly we would like you to attend the AGM.  Secondly we would like you to consider whether you or someone you know could support the scout group by taking on one of the above roles for a 12 month period.
Well done! to everyone who attended our first parade of the school year.
Everyone looked very smart and was well behaved.  The group photos look brilliant and you can order your copies online here: http://www.onlinepictureproof.com/fresh/albums/events/295121

Our next parade is on Remembrance Sunday, 11th November.  Meet at 10am in the annexe or 9:45am for a practice in church if you are doing a bidding prayer or reading.

Please remember that your duty to God is part of the young persons' promise and therefore we expect a good attendance.  If for any reason you can not attend, please send apologies to your section leader in advance.

West Lancs Scouts have started recruiting participants for ‘Egypt Experience’, which is the latest in the long line of successful International Red Rose visits. Egypt Explored is open to patrols, troops, units, and any grouping of Scouts, Explorers, Network and adults in Scouting. Over a period of two weeks during August 2013 participants will explore all the main sites in Egypt, meet Egyptian Scouts, experience the desert and stay in a range of high quality accommodation. If you have ever wanted to ride camels in the desert, canoe on the Nile or climb inside the Great Pyramid of Giza then this is an experience not to be missed.

More information can be found in the Newsletter


It would be great to take some scouts from 7th Fulwood along and we can look at fundraising jointly to reduce the cost.

Sunday 17th June 

After Church Parade you’ll have time to nip home and get changed before returning to the school field for an afternoon of fun.  Building on the success of the parish centre’s 50th and parish garden party, the 2 events have joined forces to make what promises to be a great afternoon, with plenty to do.  The scout group are running the BBQ, so no need to make lunch at home.  Children will need to be accompanied and supervised.  

St Anthony’s parish celebrates its feast day this weekend with a special feast day mass on Sunday 17th June.  The scout group has been asked to join in this occasion with a Church Parade.  Beavers, Cubs and Scouts should attend in full smart uniform.  We will meet in the annexe as usual at 10am and parents can collect young people from the annexe after mass at around 11:30am.  
Saturday 9th - Sunday 10th June 2012 - Indoors at Waddecar


(Note Monday 11th June is an inset day at St Anthony's School so the perfect opportunity to catch up on any missed sleep)


Arriving just after lunch for an afternoon of fun at Waddecar near Garstang. Will you canoe round the pirate island, tackle the pirates obstacle course or search for the pirates' treasure?  After a hearty pirate feast and a few sea shanty's round the fire, there's just time for a pirate film before settling down for the night in a comfortable wood cabin. With more activities being planned for Sunday it promises to be a fantastic weekend.



First Beaver Sleepover?


We know that a first sleepover can be a daunting experience (sometimes more so for parents than for the Beavers). We will have a parents evening beforehand to provide you with all the information you need including menus and contact information.


You are also very welcome to contact any of the leaders to ask any questions you have now. If you’re unsure or have any reservations please speak to us and we’ll do our best to help.

As well as being the patron saint of England, Saint George is also the patron saint of Scouting and so every year scouts across the country mark the occasion of St Georges Day.

On Sunday (22nd April) – St Georges Day Parade
This is the one occasion of the year when all Scouts in the District parade together and:
Everyone is expected to attend

Please ensure that your uniform is of the highest standard, with:

  • New Badges - sewn on your uniform (especially the membership badges). It would be great to see everyone wearing their new badges (Preston Guild, Project Peru and Diamond Jubilee)
  • Old Badges - removed (Preston Cen)
  • Neckerchiefs - washed, ironed, nicely rolled, with a woggle.
  • Scout trousers (or school trousers if you do not have any)
  • School shoes (no trainers)

On the day…
Mrs Gardner has kindly agreed that St Anthony’s pupils may wear their Beaver, Cub or Scout uniform to school on Monday 23rd April.

Following on from this, if anyone should express an interest in Scouting, we do have spaces available, please speak to the section leaders or myself. There is also a recruiter badge available for young people bringing along a friend who goes on to be invested.



The Scout Association is the UK’s largest mixed youth movement. We offer activities, adventure and personal development opportunities to more than 400,000 young people and 100,000 adult volunteers. We believe in helping young people grow in confidence and explore their potential as well as providing a range of adult volunteering opportunities.

YOUR TIME, YOUR CHOICE

Volunteering for Scouting gives you the chance to try different activities, visit new places and learn and share skills. You can decide how much or little time you wish to give and how you spend that time. It could be an evening a week or one weekend a year.



WHY VOLUNTEER?
  •  you’ll have fun and feel rewarded 
  • you’ll learn new skills 
  • you’ll make new friends 
  • you’ll gain externally recognised qualifications 
  • you’ll add to your CV (practical skills, team working, management skills, communication) 
  • you’ll make a difference and give something back to your community. 
Prior experience or a connection with Scouting is not necessary and we welcome people from different backgrounds.


There are plenty of opportunities, including
  • working directly with young people 
  • supporting or managing other volunteers 
  • providing specialist support, such as in fundraising, training or media relations 
  • managing events 
  • looking after the administrative side of Scouting, such as a secretary or treasurer. 
No matter what you are interested in or what skills you wish to develop, there is a role for you.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

By volunteering, you will be making a positive difference to the lives of young people. From archery to canoeing, camping to drama, young people get the opportunity to try new things, explore their talents, develop their values and beliefs and make the most out of life.

Most adults involved in providing Scouting to young people juggle this commitment with work and family life. Remember, you can decide how much or little time you give to Scouting – occasional help is better than no help at all



SUPPORT FOR YOU
  • a telephone support and information service 
  • a full colour, 80 page magazine six times a year 
  • six special supplements each year for your specialist area 
  • ongoing training and development 
  • a dedicated and daily updated website with thousands of downloadable resources to help you in your role
