Freya spent 2 weeks at the World Scout Moot, meeting up with a wide range of Scouts and seeing the wonders of Iceland. Thank you very much to everyone at Uppermill Methodist Church who has supported her. She will be telling Monday at 8 about her adventures on September 25th.
Thomas, Freya and I also spent a weekend in August at the Leaders Gathering at Waddecar Scout Camp. There were professional tutors in bushcraft and coaching young people, with opportunities to learn new games and activities and to develop our skills. There was also rain and plenty of opportunities to make new friends (we were the only ones there from Oldham). It was just like going to our very own Scout Camp really, apart from the bar!
We’re now deep into planning for next term, and one of the first dates for your diaries is the Harvest Service on September 25th, which will be a Parade Service in which the young people will be playing a large part. This will be followed by an AGM at 12 o’clock upstairs in the big hall. We will be sharing our plans, as well as a report of the year and the necessary business and elections. So you can look forward to a bumper edition of our news next month.
