Scout newsletter 3rd DEC 2022

Dear Parents,

1. The next Scout Meeting will be on Saturday 10th December at the normal time 3.00pm to 5.30pm at the Yermasoyia scout hut. The Calendar page on the 53rd Website has been updated for December.

2. The Parents Committee will be holding a Cake Sale on the 17th December after the Gang Show, in order to raise funds. We need talented PARENTS to help us with baking cakes and cookies/Sweets for us to sell! All cakes and cookies must be delivered to the meeting before 4pm on the 17th December in time for the Parents Committee Members to set up. We thank you in advance for your help and support. Please could you let me know if you are able to help out and what you will be bringing to the Cake Sale.

3. This year, once again, we will be making a collection of toys for children in need for Christmas. We’re asking all our members to donate new toys. They must be wrapped and marked for boys, girls or both and age. Please bring them to the Cub Meeting on the 17th Dec so we can take them to Kanali 6 on Sunday 18th Dec.

4. This Year’s Gang show will be on Saturday 17th December. A gang show is a show with funny sketches and songs presented by our Cubs, Scouts and Explorers for the Parents. The next Rehearsal will be on Thursday 8th December at the Moutayiaka Scout hut from 5.30pm to 7pm and is open to all our Cubs, Scouts and Explorer, everyone is welcome.

5. Lottery ticket books must be returned (sold or unsold). A list of all the winning numbers from the Christmas Dance draw can be found on Parents Chats. Prizes can be collected from the Moutayiaka Scout hut on the 10th and 17th Dec.

6. Due to the change in weather Scouts can now wear their official Purple Warm Scout top together with their full uniform. The Purple top can be bought from the Limassol Scout Shop.

7. We must ask the Parents to drive down and up the track to the Yermasoyia Scout hut with a slower speed of 10Kmph. This is to ensure everyone’s safety, there are still parents and children who prefer to walk down the roadway and there may also be animals or rocks in the road. The road is quite steep and all pets must be kept on a leash at all times when visiting the grounds.

Yours in Scouting
