A host of beavers, cubs, scouts, venturers, rovers, leaders and parents descended on City Hall on Tuesday 10th January for a reception hosted by Lord Mayor Terry Shannon.
We were greeted in the council chamber where the Lord Mayor welcomed us. The Lord Mayor then took us through the many treasures on display in his offices in two groups.
Conor is seen below signing the visitors book which will go to the City Archives at the end of the Lord Mayor’s tenure. Click on the thumbnails to get a larger version.
And finally all of us! Go Douglas!

Hello all beaver parents and guardians
We are up and running but still need to get back all consent forms from everyone (including those who were in scouting last year). Can you ensure to bring this to us on friday night?
What is particularly important for us is to ensure that you include an email address that you check regularly and your mobile phone number for text alerts as we will hand out our “hopefully” last paper note on friday night. All communications will now be done electronically.
Don’t forget our 60th anniversary celebrations at the social night in St. Columba’s Hall on October 7th. It promises to be a great occasion.
Yours in scouting (YIS)
Dara, Ross, Siobhan and James.

Well fellow Scouts, Scouters and Friends,
We’re back for another year in Douglas Scouting and we hope you will be coming back to join us and those of you in our Scout, Venture and Rover sections might even bring along some friends
- All our sections are back as follows:
- Douglas Beavers (6,7,8): Friday 16th September – Waiting list for new members
- 6th Cub Scouts (9,10,11): Monday 5th September – Waiting list for new members

As you can see from the above we have waiting lists in place for our Beaver Colony and both our Cub Scout Sections. If you have been on the current waiting list you will hear from us in the next week to confirm your place.
Due to the numbers on the Beaver waiting list we are looking into the possibility of starting up a second colony but can only mange this if we get additional leaders and adult support. If you think you might be interested please contact the Group Leader Conor Crowley by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and all the details you need will be supplied
This year brings Douglas into its 60th year in Scouting and we are planning an evening for current and former friends and families in October – More details shortly
We are bag packing, to raise badly needed funds for the Group, in Dunnes Stores, Douglas Court on Friday night 2nd September and Saturday 3rd September. People collecting must be aged 14 and over so we need Scout, Venture, Rover and parent support for this event. Can you spare us 2 hours during these days? Please contact your section leader as soon as possible and lend us a hand!
You can follow our progress throughout the year on this site plus our Facebook page and Twitter page (click on the links above)
I look forward to meeting you all again soon
Yours in Scouting
