A reminder that the deadline for placing an order for 2nd Onchan T-Shirts, Hoodies & Polo Shirts is the 31. May 2013. Order Forms are available in the Scout Hall or can be downloaded from our Website. Full details and the Order Form can be found here.
From September 2013, we will be accepting payments by BACS for Subscriptions. With more people doing their banking online, some parents will find it easier to make a payment through BACS, but we will also continue to take payment by cheque and cash. If it proves successful, in the future we will look at taking payments for activities and camps also by BACS.
Details will be on the Subs Form that goes out in September.
Chief Scout Bear Grylls, made a brief visit to the Isle of Man on the 11. May 2013. He arrived by helicopter at Peel Hill, jumped onto a mountain bike and rode with a couple of Explorer Scouts down hill to meet the Scouts at Fenella Beach who were getting ready to do Coasteering, Kayaking, Climbing and Backwoods Skills. He then walked across the footbridge to meet the Beavers and Cubs who were busy building sandcastles on the beach. The Chief was soon back in the air heading off to his next stop. It was a brief and chaotic visit, with lots of the general public following Bear around, but our members seemed to really enjoy meeting the Chief.
