What a fabulous weekend the Scouts had at the Big Expedition!

They have been looking after themselves this weekend to achieve their Expedition Challenge, one of the hardest Scouting challenge badges.

Over the weekend they have:

  • Made their own way from the annexe by bus and two trains to Clitheroe 
  • Visited 2 local tourist attractions (Clitheroe Castle and the Sculpture Trail)
  • Pitched their own campsite
  • Shopped for their own food
  • Prepared their own meals
Very well done to the first 7th Fulwood Scouts to complete this challenge: Tom, Laura, Olivia, Alex, Jack, Corey and Brendan.
Scouts from Spain at Red Rose 2014
Red Rose 2014 is an international Scout and Guide camp organised by West Lancs Scouts. The next Red Rose camp happens 26 July – 2 August 2014 at Westmorland County Showground on the edge of the beautiful English Lake District and within easy reach of a wide range of activities.
Attending our Scout Jamboree is an opportunity to meet Scouts and Guides from all over Britain and across the world while enjoying an action packed week of activities – from sailing and kayaking on Britain’s largest lake to climbing mountains or biking through forests - all in the beautiful surroundings of the Lake District National Park.
An afternoon of family fun on St Anthony's School field, next Sunday (7th July) from 1pm - 4pm. 

We need adult volunteers to spare an hour or 2 to help with the BBQ.  This could be setting up before the event, cooking, selling/serving food, clearing away afterwards.  We also plan to have a couple of sideshows which we will need help to run and collect money in.  Many hands make light work - tell us how you can help

Our final  parade of the school year in on Sunday 14th July.

Meet in the annexe at 9:15am.

Please note that Mass at St Anthony's now starts at the earlier time of 9:30am.  This means that:

  • The practice for readers/bidding prayers is at 9am in Church
  • Everyone else should meet in the annexe at 9:15am

Please remember that 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.

Our new scheme to pay subs by standing order monthly isn't quite up and running yet, so will start from next term.  This means that this term's subs need to be paid by cash or cheque (£25 for the term).

If you haven't paid subs for this term please can you pay this week.

Look out for more details soon on how to set-up standing orders to start from September.

The standing order will be for just £6.25 per month and is controlled between you and your bank.  We do not have access to your bank detail and cannot control or change this payment.  As well as helping you remember to pay on time, avoiding embarrassing reminders, standing order payments will also free up leaders' time to run better activities for your children.

The competition takes place over 2 days, starting before lunch time on the Saturday, and ending mid afternoon on the Sunday.

A practice day will be held at the annexe on Saturday 
6th July from 10am - 4pm.  Lunch is provided and the day is free of charge.

The competition shall judge the standards and abilities of the Scout Patrol to plan, organise, and run their own weekend camp, which should have an active and fun programme and shall include the preparation and cooking of meals.

With the leadership of the Patrol Leader, the Scout Patrol will be expected to pitch and setup their own campsite, to build and demonstrate at least three camp gadgets, to prepare and cook a three course international meal, to prepare and cook a breakfast over a wood fire, to run at least one patrol activity as well as complete some weekend challenges.

The Scout Patrol shall be self-sufficient for the weekend, bringing with them all necessary camping and activity equipment. All costs for the camp, including site camping fees and activity costs shall be covered by the attending Scout Patrol.

The competition will be held at Waddecar Scout Camp Site

Event Start: 11:00am Saturday 13th July 2013
