Songs for Christmas

The poster that has been sent out to all the Sections about the Songs for Christmas Event is attached. to serve as a reminder the get together is next   Wednesday 5th December    At St Elphins Church (Parish Church) from 6.30pm

 It will be great to see as many of you with your young people in your Christmas Jumpers and join us for Mulled Wine and Minced Pie afterwards. Some of the World Jamboree Team will be there selling merchandise also if you fancy buying some stocking fillers.


District Bronze and Silver Awards

On Sunday 14th October, the District held its annual Bronze and Silver Chief Scout Award Presentation. All in all there were 57 Chief Scout Bronze Award recipients and 65 Chief Scout Silver Awards invited to the presentation. Following giving out of the certificates the recipients were treated to activities like Inflatable Archery, Campfire Donuts, a Rope Bridge, Slack Lining and much more. We were joined by the ACC Beaver Scouts Laura Dyer and ACC Cub Scouts Pam Owen who helped present Certificates.

Check out the recipients on the day from the 26th Warrington East (1st Padgate) with their Certificates



Dont forget the online form for registering all Chief Scout Awards is on the District Website here
 and you can add them as soon as a Young Person gains the top award of their section. 

The Deadline for Submitting your Bronze and Silver award recipients is the 13th September 2018



County Celebrating Success

Not to be outdone by the younger sections, last weekend on Sunday afternoon was the County Celebrating Success Event at the Parr Hall in Warrington. Well done to the 22 Chief Scout Gold, 7 Platinum and 2 Young Leader Belt recipients who were invited to the event. They were treated to a great speech from our new UK Youth Commissioner Ollie  Wood.

Check out the Group Photo of everyone that was there.




Making a NAN

At the end of September the Scout Association made some minor tweaks to the Nights Away Notification process. The changes were really about the relevant information provided.

The main change you will notice is that you will have to list all Adults that are attending overnight.

The primary way of making a nights away notification is via the District Online form if you could make every effort to use it. the form can be found here



Watching a new sport

Warrington East Scouts have been invited to go along to an Ice-Hockey game with Manchester Storm (who are based in Altrincham) at greatly discounted rates!

The attached flyer gives the information for Scout Groups along with the fixtures. The ticket prices are much reduced compared to the standard prices with complimentary tickets for leaders who are looking to book groups of tickets.

Manchester Storm also carry out many activities within the community.  Team members can be booked to carry out talks to groups and learn about the game, get to try some of the equipment and watch some videos.  Most of the pro players originate from North America and have good communications skills with young people.  This is something which can be booked with Liam.

Ice-Hockey fans, including away fans, all get on well making it a family friendly sport to watch.  

There’s a YouTube clip from a couple of seasons ago which is from the Manchester Storm TV YouTube channel where all game highlights are posted.

In line with the flyer, all enquires will need to be sent to Liam Hesketh (details below), as he will take care of the group bookings for the Scout groups rather than the normal Manchester Storm box office.



Dont forget

We love seeing your Scouting Adventures, please post to our Social media streams (Twitter and Facebook details below) when you are Scouting and abouting so we can see what you have been up to and share the stories.
