As the chairperson of this scout group’s executive committee and have just returned from holiday to some disturbing news about the group. I have only taken over this position at the last AGM but have been involved for some time.
It seems that our GSL (Group Scout Leader ) has resigned and there is also a shortage of leaders for the other sections but mainly the Cubs due to a number of leaders leaving at the same time.
We are having our next executive meeting in the Scout Hall on Thursday 12th October at 7.30pm and I would like to invite all interested parents along to this meeting with a view to attracting some new blood to the group either as members of the committee or as leaders/helpers.
The idea is to hold our normal business meeting as usual to allow people to get an idea of what is involved with running the group from the non uniform side and hopefully we can persuade some people to help. New ideas and enthusiasm are required to progress the group.
Regarding the uniform side of things, helpers and leaders are required and hopefully we will get some volunteers, note; volunteers, to take the plunge and help out in some way. We can chat about what is involved and answer any queries you may have.
I look forward to hopefully seeing you on Thursday
Great fun was had by all with canes, rubber bands, balloons and a candle! See you next week!
The 6th West Lothian Scout Group AGM was held in the hall on Monday 15th May and was attended by the group’s executive committee, leaders, members of the Area Executive and a couple of parents.
Amongst other things, it was agreed there would be a meeting for parents and carers at the beginning of the new session in September. The reason for this is we have a shortage of helpers to let us run the group – we need your help!
The group is run by like minded parents and we could do with any help you can give, little or lots, often or not. Please get in touch to see where you can take a turn!
