Date: Wednesday 6th December

Time: 6.45pm

Venue: UCC Boole 4

Uniform: Full uniform including black shoes and black socks.

Parking: UCC carpark on Donovans rd

Access: UCC have asked that we use the Donovans rd or Boole College rd entrances.

Parents and family are very welcome and seating will be available in Boole 3.

Gifts collected will be distributed to various charities around the city, so, we’d appreciate if each scouter family could bring a wrapped gift labelled boy/girl and age.

Gifts are not compulsory and don’t need to be expensive. Something as simple as a colouring pencil set or colouring book would be very much appreciated.

We are NOW accepting payments through www.easypaymentsplus.com for the Scouting year 2017/2018
We had kept the registration fee the same for approx. 5 years and due to increasing costs it was agreed at our last Group Council that we need to make a modest increase of €10 per child.
  • Registration for 2017/18 will be as follows:
    This covers National Registration, Insurance and building costs (lighting, heating etc.)
  • €140 for one Scout
  • €260 for two siblings
  • €360 for three siblings
Our preferred method of payment is through the Easy Payment System, we have made an adjustment so that the EPP fees will be paid by the Group so there is NO CHARGE for you to use this system anymore.

Posted by Admin | Posted in Adults in Scouting, Beaver News, Cub News, Group News, Rover News, Scout News, Venture News | Posted on 15-08-2017

Following the announcement on May 18th last that Conor Crowley would step down over the summer months the Group Council tonight unanimously agreed that Eoin Field would be nominated for the position of Group Leader of the Douglas & St. FinBarres Scout Group and his details will now be forwarded to the National Commissioner (Adult Resources) of Scouting Ireland for approval.

Eoin joined the leadership team when he returned to Scouting after a few years break, to what was then the Douglas Scout Group, as an assistant Beaver Scout Leader back in 2012. He moved to Cubs after a year where he has run the 6th Cork Cub Scout pack ever since and was appointed Deputy Group Leader in 2016.

Eoin also is currently part of the team that is assisting the Scout Phoenix Patrol with their training and preparation for the National Campcraft Competition this weekend in Stormont Castle.

Coming from a Scouting background Eoin was a member of Blarney Cubs, Scouts & Ventures until he took a break at the age of 25. His father Pat Field is a former Unit Leader for Blarney are former Regional Commissioner. Eoins daughter Ella and son Jack are both members of the Group in Scouts and Cub Scouts.

The Group Council and the leadership team of all our sections wish him well in his new role and look forward to supporting him and helping him to lead Douglas & St. FinBarres into the future.

Hi All,

To keep things sensible this weekend, can we ask that all cars park on the left side of the car park at all times?

This will leave the right side for the coaches.  It will make life easier for all – and more importantly, safer!!

In other words:

Frankfield Parking

 

 

 

 

Thanks for your help and understanding!!
