Scout Post – New Parents Meeting

Just a wee reminder that a brief meeting to introduce the Scout Post and answer any questions parents new to the Scout Group and the Scout Post takes place tomorrow.

It will start at 6.15 pm, in the McKnight Lounge, and will last no more than 15 minutes.

Scout Post Promotional Leaflet Drop

Many thanks to everyone who helped deliver Scout Post promotional leaflets over the the weekend.


We still have quite a few to go out so if you feel you could or would like to assist further then the leaflets will be available for uplift tonight at the Scouts and Explorer Scouts and once again on Thursday evening for any Beaver and Cub Scout parents to pick up.


Many thanks for any help you can give – it would be greatly appreciated.

Leaflet Drop

Many thanks to everyone who picked up Scout Post promotional leaflets on Tuesday or last night.  Lots are gone, but we still have a lots left to be delivered.

If haven’t taken any – or you’d like some more! – please come along tomorrow morning at 9.30 am.  The main (big, blue) door on the Main Street will be open.  Even if you can’t delivery tomorrow morning, please come and take some away and deliver at a time convenient to you.

Many hands…

Thank you very much!


Scout Post Promotional Leaflets

The promotional leaflets will be available for uplift tonight for any Scout and Explorer Scout parents who can’t make the delivery on Saturday.  The same will be happening on Thursday for Beaver parents.  The Cubs may be visiting Bathgate Fire Station but feel free to pop in to Brucefield tonight or on Thursday to pick up some leaflets.

Please take a few streets – it lightens the load for everyone else!

Thank you very much!

Scout Post 2017

Letters will go out this week asking for help with the traditional Scout Post promotional leaflet drop.


This year it is taking place on Saturday 25 November from 9.30 am.   We hope as many members of the Group and families will assist.  Please note that this is in addition to assisting with the one delivery that we ask all families to do.


If you are unable to help on this day then fear not!  We’ll have leaflets available – all sorted into streets – on Tuesday 21st and Thursday 23rd November which parents/guardians can pick up and do at a time more convenient to them.


Also, thank you to everyone who has returned their Scout Post Delivery Date form.  If you haven’t, please could we have this week so that the delivery rota can be drawn up and people advised of their delivery date.  If you need a new form, please use the link below:

Many thanks in anticipation for all you help.  Any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


Remembrance Sunday

Many thanks to everyone – children and leaders alike – who came along to yesterday’s Remembrance Day Parade and Service.

The number of people taking part in the parade and present at the War Memorial seems to increase each year and it was terrific that the Scout Group was there and well represented.  Especially on such a particularly cold, if dry, day.

Thank you very much.
