I’m sure you’re looking forward to the Summer break after a successful Summer term of Scouting. I thought it would be a good idea to drop you a quick email with future dates to note for those of you who like to plan ahead.

Electronic copies of the letters to young people and information for leaders are available from the weblink below each event. Full details will be emailed to you for each event in late August and will be explained at the leader’s meeting on 6th September… but for now, please put the dates in your diary.

6th September – all section’s leader meeting

7.45pm for 8pm start – 9.30pm @ Hobbs Hill Wood Primary School

A chance to network with other leaders, find out about and have your say on future events and pick up tips and ideas to help run your section.

13th October – Wine Tasting Jamboree Fundraising Event (18+)

Hobbs Hill Wood Primary School

Back by popular demand! An excellent evening’s entertainment tasting wines from various countries, alongside some well-matched food and fun facts about the wine, where it’s from and how it is produced! All proceeds will support the Jamboree participants fundraising.

5th November – Family Firework Spectacular

Tolmers Scout Activity Centre

A teamwork challenge for Scouts across Hertfordshire – teams of 5-6 Scouts undertake a series of day and night bases, an orienteering course and an assault course.

Teams must be supported by at least one adult – a centrally catered option is usually available – for discussion at the September leader’s meeting.
