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!!

6th Cubs rope bridges for real

0

Posted by Andrew Breslin | Posted in 6th Cubs | Posted on 13-11-2016

Tomorrow night (Monday 14th) we’ll be putting our rope bridge building into practice by crossing one of the streams in the Mangala wood.

Please have your cub in the car park of the Douglas Community Centre for 7pm.

Weather forecast is reasonable, but it will be dark and chilly so your cub must have the following with them……

1) Hat & gloves
2) Rain coat & waterproof trousers.
3) A torch.
4) Boots/walking shoes, not trainers as contact with cold water is very possible!!
5) High-vis jacket

Parents are welcome to stay and watch and if brave enough are very welcome to try crossing the bridge.

Note: Any adults in attendance must be supervised by a responsible Cub Scout at all times.

We are sending text messages to the 6th Cub parents, but if you’re not getting them please do let us know.

Hi All,

Huge thanks for your patience as we’re ironing out some of the initial teething problems with the system.

As of now, you CAN pay for registration with the system.  (It was only showing Spike – registration is now there).

We really appreciate all the feedback – without it, we would never get there!

Anyone at the registration night on Sunday – we hope to have a number of laptops there & will be able to sort any individual issues with the system.

Enda.

Morning all,

Here in Douglas & St. FinBarre’s Scout group, we’re implementing an online payment system for the group, through a company called Easy Payments Plus.

We’re excited by it, we feel it will give both us and you an easier way to pay & track payments.

In the next short while, you should receive an email from the system, allowing you to activate your account.  You should do this – it’s NOT spam!

 

We KNOW that there may be teething problems while we role this out – please bear with us.  We feel it’ll be really worth it on everybody’s part.

Come back with any queries,

Enda.
