Message from our Chairperson

Hi All,

Please allow me to introduce myself to those who do not know me – My name is Bob Halvey and I am the new Chairperson of our great Scout Group. I am the father of two boys in our scout section.

I have been associated with the troop for many, many years, seeing first-hand the wonderful work and dedication from our scouters. Work we need to continue hopefully for many years to come.

As you are most likely aware we have had to carry out extensive renovations to our hall to meet fire safety requirements. These works will, in turn, benefit each and every child who comes into us from Beavers right the way up.

These refurbishments do not come cheaply and, as we highlighted in the section/parent meetings we had earlier in the year, we will need as much support as we can possibly get to assist with our fundraising efforts. Your support in the past has been brilliant, most recently with our Clothing collection which surpassed our expectations. Many thanks for this.

Next up for the unit is the dreaded Bag Packing collection in Dunnes Stores in the Jetland Friday May 31st & Saturday June 1st.

I know it’s not for everyone but this year we really need as much support from parents and friends to fill all the slots ourselves to maximise the potential of this opportunity. Remember, last year we had to bring another group on board to help us resulting in us sharing proceeds with them. We need to avoid this if we can.

If you have not signed up for a slot can you give us some of your time? If you cannot make it but know someone who would be willing to help out let us know.

If you have signed up thanks in advance for your effort

Yours in Scouting
