AGM 1400 on 18th September 2022 at Camp site

3 September 2022
We are excited to invite all young members, parents, other family members and all adult volunteers to our Annual General Meeting on 18th September. That said, the formal AGM is only a small part of what we have planned and usually takes no more than 30 minutes so please read on to see what else we are doing.Place: Beacon Hill Campsite (for new parents this is on the road between Faygate and Colgate)Time: Please arrive between 1:45 and 2:00 pm.On arrival please park sensibly in the main car park and we will be on hand to direct you to our own camping site which is a five minute walk through the woods.
Subject to the weather forecast, we will erect open sided shelters to allow everyone to stand under cover if the need arises but hope to be able to just assemble outside and enjoy our fabulous camp site for the afternoon.As well as the AGM, we hope to be doing the following:
  • serving light refreshments in the form of teas and coffees plus cold drinks for youngsters;
  • having a soft archery competition for everyone including adults who want to have a go;
  • sausage sizzle
  • handing out awards to young members and adult volunteers;
  • running a camp fire later on for everyone who wishes to attend.
This takes a lot of organising and effort on the day so please show your suport for our fabulous volunteers by showing up and supporting them. Without them, we would not have a Scout Group and the extraordinary effort of our team keeping our Group flourishing is surely worthy of just one afternoon of your time. Its also a bit disappointing when the recipient of one of our young person or adult volunteer awards is not present to have their efforts applauded by their peers.
Some logistics
  • everyone please go to the toilet at home before you leave as there are limited facilities at the campsite.
  • please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather;
  • please bring your own hand sanitiser for your family group;
  • please stay at home if anyone of your family is unwell regardless of whether they have identifiable CV-19 symptoms
  • if you have them, please bring your own folding chair as we will only have limited numbers available ourselves;
  • the campfire circle has some logs to sit on and not much space for chairs so, if you have one, please bring a picnic blanket or similar to sit on the logs if you wish.
  • we will be using single use cups for teas and coffees etc. If you wish to, feel free to bring your own drinks containers to minimise our waste
  • bring your singing voices. Its ages since we have a good sing song round a campfire!
