As we approach the busy camp season, a reminder for all those involved in organising camps, particularly camp leaders:

 

Nights Away-reminder to include all adults attending & RA when sending information –including programme, to Sarah Bennett, if possible, more than 14 days before the camp starts.  Any adult sleeping over MUST have completed Safety and Safeguarding modules & have a DBS, suggested applications should be made 3 months before the event.

Remember to keep updating RA’s and share with all adults attending camp.

Monoply Run in London completed on 2nd  & 3rd March.

WF9 Scouts, Leaders and Explorers managed to visit 18 properties in London, go iniside the Ritz and make a dent in the Haribo on offer. Over 38,000 steps recorded, a lot of tube rides, a lot of rain and a lot of caffeine drunk by the adults.

Other teams took part from the District, alongside others from around the country and had a great time. The event even got a mention on Radio 2's breakfast show the next day.

But great fun and ready for next years event in early March 25!!
