Contact Details

We will shortly be emailing existing members with a My.Scout link to enable you to check and update personal details as necessary. New members will be emailed the link once your child is entered onto our system. It is vital that we have accurate records should we need to contact you.

Medical

Our annual Medical Form will be emailed out shortly. These MUST be returned promptly. Essentially go to the link, fill the form in ONLINE then print off, sign then return it to your child’s section leader team.

Spaces

Beavers
Both Colonies are currently full if all our existing Beavers return and those who we have contacted from the waiting list decide to take up a space. If anyone knows of someone who would like a space in Beavers please get them to fill in a membership application form (https://28thayrshire.org.uk/contact-us/membership-application-form/) with their details and we will add them to the waiting list.
Cubs
Both Packs are currently full if all our existing Cubs return and those who we have contacted from the waiting list decide to take up a space. If anyone knows of someone who would like a space in Cubs please get them to fill in a membership application form (https://28thayrshire.org.uk/contact-us/membership-application-form/) with their details and we will add them to the waiting list.

 

Leader Help

We desperately need help in all Sections from Beavers to Explorers to be able to continue our active programme. If you are even slightly interested in knowing more please get in touch with us and we will let you know what is involved.

Holidays

We like to make things as simple as possible. Unless we have a Leader crisis we plan as usual to stay open for normal Section Meetings throughout the Year and only close for Christmas and summer. We realise that other organisations/clubs close for holidays on September weekend, October week, Easter, May Day etc. but we usually stay open. There always are some who think that if the schools are off so are we. This is only the case for Christmas and summer.

We hope that all our existing Members will be returning as we have a new and exciting programme ahead. Should this not be the case however, can you please let us know so that we can make any necessary changes to our register etc. New members, new and improved faces in the Leader Team, new programme and lots of things planned for the coming year – 2015/2016 looks set to be very exciting and packed with action!

We hope you all had a fantastic summer.

Looking forward to seeing you all back!
