As Cliff mentioned on Tuesday we will be having our Christmas meal this year at the Pepper Mill in Longton. The cost of the meal is £13 (not including a drink). I have booked a table for 20 which can be increased if needs be. Please bring your money ASAP, once you have paid you can choose your food from the Christmas menu which I will bring on Tuesday night.
It would be nice to get as many of you to come along as possible, the 17th will be the last week of Explorers before Christmas.
See you Tuesday
We are watching a movie tomorrow night so please bring a chair and snacks. Please also make sure you are prompt so we can get started as quickly as possible. Uniform is not required.
Bring some cash for the tuckshop tonight
I am starting to get a bit bogged down with stuff and I am forgetting to post important information on here for you guys. For this reason I am looking to appoint a couple of you as a webmasters on this site. This basically means you will be able to post entries on the site, stuff like upcoming events but also anything you think would be relevant to the unit. I will oversee anything you do but ultimately you can do what you want with the site.
If you are interested in this role please let me know and I will appoint two of you.
There is a Module A course at the Trentham Scout HQ at 10 am on this Saturday (Nov 16).
For those of you that do not know what a Module A course is for, it is the training you REQUIRE to help out at any other Scout group. So if you want to be a young leader you need to attend this training. Even if you do not wish to be a young leader at the moment I recommend you go and get the training out of the way so you can go straight into a group when you want to.
There is no cost associated with the course, just be at the HQ for 10 am on Saturday (map below). It will run until 12.
The address of the HQ is:
Here is the map:
On Sunday there is a remembrance day parade in Stoke. Please be at the car park off Kings Way at 10:30 sharp. The car park is over the road from Stoke Minster. Please be there on time and please make sure you are in FULL UNIFORM with formal trousers and black shoes. Also make sure you are wearing a poppy too. It finishes at 12:00.
I will not be there but Cliff will and probably Meagan. As always I expect to hear that Scorpion E.S.U. have behaved themselves and have set a good example for all of the younger Scouts that will be there.
See you next week.
(Please note the update, I put the wrong times)
