Beaver Trip to East Links

The Beaver Scouts are going to East Links Family Park, near Dunbar on Saturday – 1 June 2019.

The bus is leaving Brucefield Church at 9 am and we intend returning at approximately 5 pm.

Beavers are asked to wear their uniform, bring a jacket and a packed lunch. There is a gift shop that the children may wish to visit.

Anyone wishing to go who has not already returned a consent form, please do so on Thursday. If a consent form is needed or you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to speak to any leader on Thursday.

Beavers and Cub Scouts at Polkemmet

Due to the halls being used for the European Elections on Thursday (23 May 2019), Beaver and Cub Scouts will be going to Polkemmet Country Park for the evening.

We ask that the Cubs and Beavers – from BOTH Beavers groups – are dropped off at Polkemmet at 6 pm and collected once again at 7.30 pm.  We intend gathering at and departing from the car park nearest to the adventure play area – close to the park’s Visitor Centre.  Parents may of course wish to consider sharing transport if convenient.

Everyone is asked to wear their normal Thursday night uniform but wear sensible outdoor footwear and a jacket may be useful depending on the weather.  Drinks and a snack will be provided during the evening.

If transport is an issue please contact one of the leaders and arrangements will be made to get any kids to and from Polkemmet.

As with other outings to Polkemmet, if the weather is poor then sadly the evening will have to be cancelled as no alternative accommodation is available to us.   Please do not go to Polkemmet if the weather is not suitable for being outdoors.  Please use your own judgement and if in doubt, contact Gavin on 743288 AFTER 4.30 PM ON THE THURSDAY EVENING.  We will also post any information on our website and Facebook page.

Brucefield Parade and Service

Takes place this Sunday. We are gathering at Whitburn Bowling Club at 10.15 am for a 10.30 am departure. We hope to be back at the Bowling Club around 12.15 pm, after the church service.

Everyone is asked to wear full uniform and a collection will be taken during the service.

We know everyone’s busy. We know parades and services are perhaps seen as a less exciting activity compared to many other things we do. But, they are part of what we do, part of being a Scout, and we ask that everyone makes a real effort to attend. We thank parents for helping (and perhaps cajoling) their child to do so.

Attendance at the District Parade at the end of April was disappointing across the Sections. An improvement would be brilliant and appreciated. Many thanks.
