Please help your child to help us operate smoothly:
- Please be on time. You need to arrive a few minutes before the official start time to get your coat off and get ready.
- We are a uniformed organisation and all members need a uniform. Please wash and iron the uniform periodically. Uniforms can be bought from Rawcliffe’s in Colliergate. Neckers are bought directly from Heslington Scout Group before investiture.
- There is the annual St. George’s Day Service – held in the Minster around the 23rd April – and parade. We operate a three-line-whip for this event so please make a note in your diaries now!
- The Group has a close link with Heslington Church and as a Group we attend two services per year – one in summer and the other just before Christmas. We ask for parents’ support in ensuring that these are well attended.
- For Cubs and Scouts we expect full attendance at the Christmas Bag Packing (a big fund raising activity for us).
