Hi

I have attached details of our forthcoming “Family Quiz Night” being run to raise funds to help our seven participants going to the World Scout Jamboree in the USA later this year.

PLEASE ALSO CIRCULATE THIS TO YOUNG PEOPLE / PARENTS IN YOUR SECTION/GROUP.

These evenings are always great fun – and this year’s quiz has been put together to be very family-friendly.

A ploughman’s supper is included within the ticket price – there will also be a bar serving alcoholic, hot and cold drinks at very reasonable prices.

Please do try to put together a team (up to 8 people) and enjoy the evening!

Thanks

It is with great sadness that I write to advise you that Peggy West has “Gone Home”. Peggy passed away at Watford Hospital on 12th December 2018 after a long illness just a few days before her 91st birthday.

Peggy was Cub Scout Leader at 4th Boxmoor for almost three decades until 1990 and continued to support the Scout Group ever since.

She was awarded the “Medal of Merit” for good service in 1980 and “Bar to the Medal of Merit” in 1988 in recognition of her dedication to Scouting at Group and District level. 

In April 1996, Peggy was invited to become a District Vice President and her long service was recognised with the presentation of her 50 year service certificate in 2015.

Details of Peggy’s funeral will be shared, with the family’s permission, in due course.

Hi

You may already have seen in your Scouting+ emails from Gilwell that the Nights Away Notification form was updated in September but I have had some old versions sent to me, so I have attached the new form again for everyone to keep on file.

Locally, we have also created an online version, which can be submitted via the URL below:
