I hoped that would grab your attention – a reminder that the district is organising a bag-packing session on 21/22 December at Tesco, Jarman Park (details attached, online registration online at www.hemel-scouts.co.uk/bagpacking). Members of the district team will be supervising the sessions so even if leaders from your group can’t be there, youth members can still help raise money for your group… so please give this a final push over the next few days!
