Group Open Evening and Family BBQ on Saturday 10 September

The Group will be hosting our customary open evening with the emphasis on fun and family participation. There will be activities and games for all the family, not only Beavers, Cubs & Scouts but brothers, sisters and potential members – all are welcome.

The day will start at 4pm with games & activities for all. As befits Scouting these will be outdoors, subject to the weather! There will then be a break in the activities for presentations of badges and awards to Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and Adults and an illustrated review of the year’s activities, after which the activities will continue for the young people during our short Group AGM.

The evening will be completed with a relaxed Family Barbecue on the lawn or if wet under the large gazebo.

To ensure our customary Group family atmosphere there will be:

  • A complimentary Drink before the Presentations
  • Free Barbecue Food
  • Drinks available after the AGM
  • Copies of the Group Annual Review for your collection
  • Displays & photographs of Group Activities during the year
