17 pairs of Lads & Dads enjoyed an action packed weekend camping on the Chatsworth Estate. Activities included Kayaking, Shooting, Non Stop Cricket and loads of personal challenges including climb your dad and the horseshoe toss game. Each evening saw the dads relaxing around the fire and sharing stories!
Well done to our winners, Dan and Colin Jacobs and to all who took part. Open the full post to see more pics, or view the gallery here.
All parents and adult supporters of 20th Sheffield are invited to the Group’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 17 October at 8.15pm in the upstairs function room at The Banner Cross pub on Ecclesall Road.
This is expected to be a short formal meeting to approve the annual accounts, the nomination and appointment of the committee, and hear a brief report from the Group Scout Leader about the Group’s activities over the last 12 months.
Section Leaders will be present and available to discuss their programmes. Please show your support for them; they give up hundreds of hours to look after your children and appreciate the chance to meet and talk to parents.
20th Sheffield is run by a dedicated group of leaders supported by a committee of parent volunteers and an Active Support Unit (ASU). The committee and ASU are looking for new members. If you would like to get involved on the committee, please make yourself known at the meeting or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to know more about the ASU, please contact Neil Benson email@example.com.
All 20th Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and their family and friends are invited to take part in our sponsored walk to help us raise money to replace our minibus. Our target is £4000.
There are 5 routes to choose from, depending on how far you’d like to walk. All the routes are timed to finish at the Common Land on Common Lane at approximately 4.30pm. Obviously, a lot depends on how fast you walk!
There will be a BBQ and refreshments at the finish.
