RAF Leconfield visit


Cubs have been invited to visit RAF Leconfield on Thursday 14 April .

This will be a one off opportunity to visit a working RAF Base and see what goes on behind the gates.

We will need to arrive at the base for a 6pm start and the visit will last about an hour to an hour and a half.

Journey time is about 30 minutes. We will probably set off together from the Scout Hut, more details later.

Cubs will need to wear full uniform.

Please complete in full and sign the questionnaire which was given out last week  and return to me NEXT WEEK, Thursday 31 March.

You will not be able to go if you don’t complete the form in advance.

Any problems?   Please feel free to come and discuss them with me at the Pack meeting tonight, 31st March.


John, Cub Leader.

Scouts: Camp 16-17/04/2011


Dear Parents,

On 16 and 17 April we are planning to undertake some Scouting Activities with an overnight camp that will count towards the “Outdoor Challenge” award which is an important award in Scouting.

On the 17 April it is our St. George’s Day celebrations.  St. George is the Patron Saint of Scouting.  We would encourage parents and siblings to attend the parade and service.  Various awards will be made to young people and leaders from the groups represented.

The weekend itinerary is:

16/04/11          13:30   Scouts arrive at Gilberdyke HQ for Camp, Hike and other Activities.

17/04/11          14:00   Parents attending St George’s Day arrive at Gilberdyke HQ.  We will travel to Goole together and lifts for the Scouts would be appreciated. (Please can you let me know if you are going to attend.)

17/04/11          16:30   Following refreshments, depart Goole for Gilberdyke.

The cost of the camp will be £12 per child.

Enclosed with this letter is a Nights Away Information Form.  Please can you complete the bottom section and return to me next week.  Retain the top part for your information.  On the reverse you will find a kit list of items that your child will need to bring with them to camp.
