2009 Executive Committee Chairman’s Report

   |   By

How quickly a year goes by- a successful year for our Group in terms of increased numbers in all the sections. As an ex-Beaver Leader I’m especially pleased to hear the Beavers are doing so well under Amanda’s leadership as the Beavers are the real basis for all the other sections.

With regard to social activities, we hosted a very successful Quiz evening in November 08 thanks to Bryn’s amazing organisation and question setting, sausages and mash were served to everyone. Bryn says he will organise a Quiz this November so we shall look forward to another good evening.

On the matter of fund raising to enable us to install new toilets and showers we are looking toward applying for various grants, we are trying hard but the Credit Crunch seems to have hit lots of organisations.

We have had two successful Work parties with a lot of tidying up being done and new lights installed in the Old Hut.

Thanks go to all the Leaders of the Sections, who are volunteers who give up their precious time freely, not only during the week, but give up some of their holiday time to take Cubs, Scouts and Explorers away camping. We are very fortunate to have such a hardworking and dedicated team here at Normandy.

We are always looking for volunteers for the Executive Committee.
