Cool Running

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).
