Working Party- 3rd November (+ free bacon butties!)

Posted on October 14th, 2018 by mardenscouts

Dear Parents & Friends of Marden Scout Group


Earlier in the year we noticed that the wall at the rear of the grounds required some attention as the top brick courses were loose. We looked at getting this attended to by building companies but even the cheapest quotes would have made a significant dent into the Scout Group Funds.


One of our Leader team’s partners is a brick layer by trade and has very kindly offered to help however the work needed will require more than his pair of hands.


We will be holding a working party on Saturday 3rd November from 8.30 am.  The aim of this working party is to take down the top 4 / 5 courses of bricks and clean off any old mortar that is on the bricks, in readiness for them to be re-used / re-relayed in the repair of the wall (this will keep expenses down).


The help of volunteers with any knowledge / tackled similar would be appreciated however it is a relatively straight forward DIY job so really only eagerness to help is the only skill needed!  The more volunteers we have the quicker and easier the job will be to complete.  We would hope with enough help that we would be finished by lunchtime.


We would ask that volunteers please bring their own tools (hammers, chisels, bolsters, work gloves, protective eye wear), and dress appropriately for the work / weather. If you own a wheelbarrow, these would be handy to have available, similarly we will need a number of step ladders / ladders / platform to work from.


The Scout Troop will be camping at the HQ over the weekend and will be providing Bacon butties & hot drinks to all our volunteers.


If you are able to help, please can you e-mail by Thursday 25th October. If you have a wheelbarrow, ladders / platform can you please make him aware in your message. (or if you have any special dietary requirements).


Please do not assume that others will volunteer, we do need help from all.  If we do not get sufficient volunteers, we will have to employ builders and spend the Scout Group’s hard-earned funds.


Yours in Scouting



Group Scout Leader

Christmas Post 2016

Posted on November 30th, 2016 by mardenscouts

Christmas Post 2016

After last year’s success, back by popular demand is our Scout Christmas Post!
We can save you time and you can help us raise funds.  From 1st December there will be posting boxes round the village and you can post your Marden and Collier Street Christmas cards (fully addressed) along with a donation (suggested 20p – 50p). Each card will be franked and delivered throughout the village by Scout-Elves on Sunday 18th December.
There are two ways we need your help please:
• Use the boxes for your village post (locations of post boxes are on the attached poster). Note there will only be one delivery so this is not suitable for regular mail, only Christmas cards. Last posting date: 16th December!
• We need Beavers, Cubs and Scouts – accompanied by an adult – on Sunday 18th December to deliver cards. The Scout HQ will be open from 9 – 10:30am to collect a batch of cards and they must be delivered in daylight, the same day. We appreciate it is a busy time of year and it is the last Sunday before Christmas but the more help we get, the less each person will have to do!
With big thanks to Mrs Weir for again co-ordinating this for us.

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.
