January saw the Scout Group AGM which reported a high level of membership, sadly still a waiting list and the premises and grounds in excellent condition.The Group is still seeking more adult support with the sections ranging from Beaver Scouts to Scouts covering the 6 – 14 age range.
We said farewell and thanks to Jon and Enid Stanbrook-Evans who have retired from the Group Committee after serving for more than 30 years. They joined when son Daniel became the first Beaver Scout at Taverham….and he has now reached 40!
Another change is that after 15 years as Chairman, I have ‘retired’ from the role and handed over to Daniel Fordham. I don’t escape that easily as I remain a member of the Group Committee. I join with the rest of the Group in wishing Daniel every success in the role.
The evening rounded off with presentations from all the sections of the activities carried out in 2017 including camps, visits from the Police and Fire Service (planned!), crafts, first aid and cooking. If any adults are interested in volunteering to support and help our local youngsters, please get in touch.
