DC Notes January 2019

Hi District

This newsletter goes out to all leaders and adult members but it doesn’t get to parents and children so please can you pass on any relevant info, or just send them a copy.

Roof’s on!! (View looking at old kitchen window)

Garners Goes Bananas

We are well ahead of program, the roof is on, drains are in and paths laid, looking forward to Family Camp.

We are still trying to raise more money to finish the job off so please keep thinking about fund raising.

The Mayors Charity Concert

Its Saturday 9th February at Weydon’s Medici Theatre in aid of us! Tickets are going fast so please get them while you can. Tickets available at The Scout Shop or from Farnham Town Council (see their website).

The Great Scout Art Competition and Exhibition

Thank you for getting behind this great project, we have had lots of entrants. Entries are due in by 15th of March so you still have plenty of time to get involved. Please see the poster attached with these notes.

Family Camp

Booking is now live, go HERE to get yourselves booked in. I have just booked, the cost is the same as last year £12.00 in advance.  Payment is £15.00 on the day.

We need a great support team for this great event so please step up and volunteer.

Farnham Scout Wind Band

By popular demand we are getting the band together again for Family Camp. All musicians who are grade one and above and can cope with a couple of sharps are welcome. Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, leaders and parents are all welcome. There will be a rehearsal on Sunday morning 28th of April and the performance at St Georges Day that afternoon.


We have had module 25, shooting and safeguarding training in the past month thanks go to Eric Goulding and Dominic Getting for making this happen.

We hope to offer a first aid course in March, details to follow
