Annual General Meeting, 17 October, 8.15pm

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 chris@staves.org.uk. If you’d like to know more about the ASU, please contact Neil Benson activesupport@20th.org.uk.

Dalehead Bunkhouse Winter Weekend 16th – 18th December 2016

An action packed weekend of fun and adventure.

This year we are trying a new location – Dalehead Bunkhouse near Edale.  You will get to be a Scouting Pioneer and go somewhere no (Thursday) Scout has been before!

Last year we did loads of activities; including astronomy, canal football, a night hike to look at the haunted railway, and orienteering at Black Rocks.  Plus our epic feature presentation from a world away, “The Martian”.

This year we will be doing new things!  What activity would *you* like to do?  What film would you like to watch?

Tell a Leader!

Weekends away and Summer Camp are the times when we do the most things – miss them and miss out what being in Scouts is all about.
