Whether you are a Beaver, Cub or Scout, we would love it if you would attend the Annual Parade taking place on Sunday 22nd April.
Please let us know if you can come so we know the numbers. The more of us, the better!
We are looking for parents to help getting the kids to Linlithgow on the day too.
On Sunday 22nd April 2018 the Cubs will take part in the annual St Georges Day Parade through Linlithgow. Assembly point for the parade is Low Port Primary School Playground at 2pm and the parade will move off at 2.30 pm to be at St Michaels Church by the Palace ready for the service at 3pm. Please meet us there.
This is a great opportunity to show that Scouting is alive and well in West Lothian, that we have pride in the uniform and our young people, as well as the dedication and commitment of our adult leaders. It is also the day for renewal of promises for all Sections, and knowing we are part of a great organisation.
Join with Scouts all over the world on this special day.
We look forward to seeing you on the day.
As you may know, we’ve been doing the first levels of the Emergency Aid Badges in Beavers and Cubs. As part of this, we require them to be able to explain some things to other people – we suggested they speak with their favourite grown-ups when they are at home.
The topics they should be able to discuss are –
Please help them to increase their awareness in emergency care as this is a real life skill!
You’re contact, nothing! Beavers learn the basic skills needed in life, something which is expanded on throughout their time in Scouting and this session saw the colony cooking themselves a wee snack on the camping stove. Cooking Supernoodles today, one day, may become a Michelin starred meal, who knows!
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!
