SCOUTING UNDER COVID RESTRICTIONS
With the gradual easing of restrictions the sections are now meeting face to face, usually outdoors, taking advantage of the better weather. Covid precautions are still in place, so parents are requested to maintain distancing whilst at the HQ and not to go beyond the cones and barriers.
All about 1st Burgess Hill Scout Group
1st Burgess Hill Scout Group is one of 4 Scout groups in Burgess Hill. Although its headquarters are accessed from Station Road, it is the building that you see on the right hand side of Queen Elizabeth Avenue as you head into town. The group has two Beaver
packs and two Scout
troops, each of the sections meeting on a Monday or a Thursday evening. The building is also home to Glacier Explorer Scouts, one of the District Explorer units.
FUNDRAISING THROUGH AMAZON SMILE - HAVE YOU SIGNED UP YET?
The group joined the Amazon Smile scheme in July 2018 with 45 people signed up. In that time we have raised over £255, at no cost to any of the group members who signed up – all that was needed was to register with Amazon Smile and go through the link. Costs to you are the same whether you use regular Amazon or Amazon Smile. With online spending increasing, think how much we could make if everyone signed up (currently 35 are signed up). Contact Margaret, Group Treasurer, for more information.
