Please see all our term dates for your calendar/diaries.

Over the Summer we have made a few changes:

Scouts

I have asked Margaret Donnelly to support the Beaver leadership team for 12 months.  To allow this to happen, we will be consolidating our scouts into a single night temporarily.  We will look to relaunch the second troop night in about a years time.

Beavers

Due to changes in our leaders' work patterns we have made some changes to our colony leaders.  I'm sure they will have your support to run a good and active programme for our Beaver Scouts.
