DC Notes to District 1st April
Congratulations to Ken Powell on being awarded Scouting’s highest honour The Silver Wolf.
Ken’s contribution to the success of the 5th Farnham Bourne, Farnham’s largest group, has been immense. He continues his scouting aschairman and valued adviser to his group and district.
Robert Humphrey has been awarded The Silver Acorn for his continuing support for The 3rd’s. Robert has spent many hours working on grants and fund-raising for the Daniel Hall and has cycled around Viet Nam on a sponsored cycle ride.
I enjoyed Theswimming Gala on Saturday and well done to all who took part especially the triumphant 3rds.
A cold dark evening at Garners was the Venue for 5th’s Gold Awards where a hot cup of chocolate was much appreciated.
I visited 2nds Beavers to give Brennan Healey and Tony Macer their wood badges and enjoy a noisy colony of happy Beavers.
Nicky Clements, Berni Peters and Paul Hamersley are now night’s away advisors. Please encourage as many leaders as possible to get their permits so we can get our children out camping.
Please send all training modules etc. to Steve Thames out training administrator.
Please check your entry in our local directory and inform Roy Tubbs of any discrepancies. Also please check your entry on the HQ site as this will be crucial to Compass working when it comes in in the Autumn.
Please make a date for 7th December 3pm when we are planning a Scout Carol service at Farnham Parish Church.
I am hoping we may also be able to ask other youth organisations to join us.
The service will have a series of readings chosen to appeal to the children with favourite carols accompanied by tableaux acted out.
Any stage managers/ acting coaches who would like to help would be most welcome.
