Village Spring Clean – Sat 5th March

Posted on February 7th, 2016 by mardenscouts

VILLAGE SPRING CLEAN!
Saturday 5th March
9.30am – 12 noon

As we have done over the last few years, the Scout Group will be lending a hand in the villages annual spring clean, which this year coincides with the national campaign to “clean for the Queen” to get the country spick n span in time for her 90th Birthday.

We ask that all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Parents meet at the John Banks Hall (at the rear of the Memorial Hall) where pickers will be given their areas to cover along with black sacks etc. Tea, Coffee n Cakes will be provided by the Parish Council

We have had great support for this over the last few years and hope to see many pairs of hands again this year.

Remembrance Day 2015

Posted on November 7th, 2015 by mardenscouts

This years’ service will be held on Sunday 8th November at St. Michael & All Angels Church in Marden.

We will meet at the Scout HQ at 10:20 and all members need to wear full uniform (with a poppy) ensuring they are as smart as possible (ironed scarves & shiny shoes!).  We will then parade to the church where the service will commence at 10.50am and will last for approximately 1hour, during which a collection will be taken for the Royal British Legion.

As a Group we ask all Leaders, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers to attend Marden’s Remembrance Service to remember and pay our respects to all those who have given their lives while doing their duty. We are always very well represented by our members and we hope that the good turnout continues on this year.

Marden Cubs need you . . .

Posted on October 11th, 2015 by mardenscouts

Marden Cubs need you . . .

Our Cub Scout Leader, Matt Causer, has decided to step down from his role at the end of this year.  Over the last 9 years he and his assistants have ensured that Cubs have enjoyed a varied, challenging & fun experience with highlights including Shelter building, pond dipping, Chinese cooking, kayaking, wide games, Camps and Water Fun Days.
With Matt’s imminent departure it is important that we now find additional volunteers to ensure Marden are still able to provide Cub Scouting for the young people in the area.
Volunteers need not necessarily know how to tie a reef knot or put up a tent as enthusiasm goes a long way. Joining our team may sound like a big commitment to already busy lives but we encourage flexible volunteering and, like all things, many hands make light work.
• Being able to encourage a young person to achieve their best is a valuable skill. Giving them self-confidence to achieve is a gift for life. All it takes are a few words and actions – Can you do that?
• Providing the direction to make a young person see the way forward, encouraging them to find the answer and discovering a solution through doing – Can you do that?
• Scouting provides young people with opportunities to develop their lives into a positive outlook for tomorrow – Can you help guide them?
• Helping them to grow into happy, confident, respected young people is a life changing experience – Can you make a young person smile?
If you or someone you know would be interested in finding out more about joining our team please contact me.

Our Cub Scout Leader, Matt Causer (Akela), has decided to step down from his role at the end of this year.

Over the last 9 years that he has led the Pack he and his assistants have ensured that all Cubs have enjoyed a varied, challenging and fun experience.  Shelter building, pond dipping, Chinese cooking, kayaking, wide games, Camps and water fun days are just some of the typical highlights for the Cubs.

On behalf of Marden Scout Group I would like to thank Matt for giving so many young people so many great experiences along with many, many hours of fantastic fun.
