Smelvin information

Dear Parent

 As you know we are going to Larch hill this weekend to take part in out County Challenged called the Smelvin. We will meet in Larch Hill car park at 7pm on Friday 17 April 2015. Collection will be from Larch Hill on Sunday 19 April 2015 at 2:30pm. Each Scout will need to go back to the Scout Den to sort out the equipment.

Each Scout should arrive on the event in full uniform and will travel home again in uniform. If you need an equipment list you can find one on the Handy Documents section of the Scout Page of our website, Click Here.

If you have any question please do not hesitate to contact me on the number below. This number can also be used as the emergency number for the weekend.


Yours in Scouting

 Hugh McLain
