St. Patrick’s Day is almost here!

In keeping with our traditions and involvement in the parish we will be attending two religious services on St. Patrick’s Day

11am Mass in St. Columbas Church & 11am Service in St. Lukes Church

Regardless of your religious beliefs we would like to ask if as many of members as possible would come and attend one of these services. We will be assembling in the Scout Hall from 10:30 in full uniform. Please let your section leader know that you can attend.

From 09:30 on St. Patricks morning we are holding our annual cake sale in the Scout Hall

The parents & friends committee are organising this event and we are asking for our members (and their parents) to show your support by baking us a cake or two (or a batch of cakes) and bringing them to the hall at 09:30 on the morning so we can sell them and raise funds for our group.

Each year we have had tremendous support for this simple fundraiser and we hope it will continue this year.

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!!

Flights are now booked!!

Hi All,

Flights for Gilwell 2017 have now been booked!

All will be revealed at a later date, but for now, all you need to know is that we’ll be leaving early on Sat 1st July and will be back again on the evening of Sat 15th July.

While the camp bookings are now “closed”, we will still accept people onto the list for a short while more, but IF THE FLIGHTS HAVE GONE UP IN PRICE, YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY THE INCREASE.

To be honest, we don’t expect them to go up too much, but you never know!!

 

Any questions, just get back to us!!!

 

Enda.
