Activities for children in Kingswells

Updated: 24 November 2003

Kingswells parents please tell your children they are welcome to contribute news items,articles, views, poems, artwork and discussion topics to the web site.

SAVE THE SCOUT GROUPS: The Kingswells Scout Group are to hold an Extraordinary Meeting at the Kingswells Community Centre on Wednesday 22nd January 2003. The only item on the agenda at this meeting will be the disbandment of the Group. The Committee of the Scout Group have reluctantly had to call this EGM as the Group has been unable to recruit sufficient adult leaders to allow the group to continue.

The current status of adult leadership in the group is as follows:

Beaver Section - No Leader despite several attempts to recruit

Cubs Section - One leader who's job entails significant travel [which means the Cub Section programme is at best disjointed]

Scout Section - One leader who will be moving on to leading an Explorer Scout section at Area Level.

The above means that if new adult leaders cannot be recruited the Group will have only a disjointed Cub Programme available going forward, which is an unsustainable situation and hence the reluctant decision of the Committee to propose disbandment.

Before making the final decision on disbandment the committee want to discuss the adult leadership situation with the parents of both current members of the group and also prospective members - so if your sons and daughters are either current members or prospective members please make every effort to attend this EGM so your views can be taken into account in making the final decision on the future of the group.

If you would like more information prior to the meeting please contact Mike Oxley on tel no 743368. (Posted 18.12.2002)
