Pastoral Notes 14th July 2019

Scout Group

Today we welcome our uniformed groups to the traditional Church Parade. However, the Group is in desperate need of new adult leaders to the extent that we have sadly received this message.

“Our Scout Group was formed in the 1940s and we don’t want to close. However, due to lack of volunteers the Scouts are now closed to new children and after over 30 years The Beaver section closes this week. The Cubs and Scouts will close over the next few years as our number of young people leave.

We cannot stay open longer or accept new members without more adult leaders. “

If any adult might be able offer a few hours a week, to keep scouting going in this parish for another thirty years. please contact the Group Scout Leader. Theresa McInally    phone 07904 585 215 to learn more. This very worthwhile voluntary work might appeal to a young adult who remembers the good times they had, but equally, anyone who did not have that experience can expect appropriate training and encouragement.
