Group Executive needs help

UPDATE: ONLY the fund raising position to fill

At our AGM, as well as concluding the obligatory business we are legally required to do, we also need to make sure that we have the right people in place as members of our Group Executive Committee to assist in the running of our Scout group.

The Group Executive Committee plays a vital role in the running of all Scout Groups. Executive Committees make decisions and carry out administrative tasks to ensure that the best quality Scouting can be delivered to young people in the Group.

We are very lucky to have a committee made of some very enthusiastic members, some long-standing and some new, but we do have some roles that we would now like to fill.

Can you help us? If you feel that you could help support our Scout Group behind the scenes in any capacity, but especially with regards to one of the four roles below, we would love to hear from you:

1. Executive Chair - we have a voluteer

2. Fundraiser - 1st Wokingham is a very successful and active Scout group. We are very lucky to be able to offer a varied programme for our young people and to host our sections in our own Scout Hut. To be able to do this to the best of our ability, we look to raise money each year, predominantly through supporting Wokingham´s May Fayre, Christmas Fayre and through running our own fun and profitable Fireworks Evening. We ideally need a new fundraiser to help coordinate these activities. Please contact us if you can help in anyway.

3. Assistant Treasurer - we have a voluteer

All of these roles are critical to the success of our group!

If you could help our group and our children, or would just like to understand more about any of these roles, please do contact our Group Scout Leader, Karen Johnson, on 07766 642132. Or you can talk to any leaders / executive committee members.

Please don´t be shy - and thank you!

Family Camp June 2018

We had a magnificent weekend at Bears´ Rails Campsite in Windsor Great Park on 15th - 17th June.
Nearly 100 1st Wokingham Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and their families set up camp together for a weekend of adventure. And judging by the sheer levels of exhaustion experienced by children and adults alike, a hug amount of fun was had! Thank you to all for supporting this weekend and a massive thank you to all the volunteers and leaders who worked so hard to make this camp a success for all.

It was also great to have such support at the AGM - thank you for attending.

24th World Scout Jamboree

Harry McBain will be hosting a Quiz Night at 1st Wokingham on 22nd September.
Cost is £10 per head and will include a Fish and Chip Supper. There will also be a licenced bar. Teams of 8, so get a group of friends together and come and join in the fun.
More details soon and keep an eye on Harry´s Jamboree board in the entrance hallway of the hut.
Many thanks for your ongoing support, Harry.

Harry can be contacted via [email protected]

Events

We are a charity which organises events throughout the year to raise money for our group to spend on repairs, equipment and such like. To see what events and activities are happening, where and when take a look at the events calendar.

Our next group event is the Group Fireworks and Bonfire held on Tuesday 6th November. Full details nearer the day.
