Our Beaver Colonies are completely full and there is already a long list of young people who want to join in the future – the Colonies will remain full for the foreseeable future. Demand for places is very heavy and is far greater than any possible provision of places now or in the future.
If your interested youngster is already over five years old, it is most unlikely that they will get into Beavers at 1st Oxted. We can take your details, but it will be Cubs (from age 8) that the youngster may be joining.
NINE places already taken for Scout Winter Camp. This excludes children of leaders and helpers who get a place automatically (without those adults I have no camp.) So realistically that’s 14-16 places (of 32-36 total) gone. When I said Winter Camp was popular, I was quite serious….don’t dilly-dally.
Cubs from BOTH packs have the opportunity to visit the RAF Museum at Hendon on this coming Saturday 26th September. Cost approx. £11 to cover the train fare and a trip on the 3D simulator.
Contact Akela in either Pack if interested.
This coming Saturday 12th September is the BIKE and PRAM SALE on Master Park, Oxted.

A pair of ladies glasses were left behind at the Donkey Derby and can be returned on request.
The Donkey Derby raised several thousand pounds. An exact figure will be available in due course. It was a success. No one was harmed and no equipment was damaged. Many thanks to all the uniformed leaders and parents and friends of the Group who put in hours of work to help make it a success. Thanks also to Paula Myers on the Scout Group Executive Committee, who, assisted by her Exec colleagues, has worked for months to make the Donkey Derby happen.
Don’t forget to come along to the Donkey Derby on Saturday http://www.1stoxtedscouts.com/donkey-derby/ Stalls open: 1.15pm First race:1.30pm Last race 4.10pm Grand prize draw: 4.20pm
Saturday’s Bike Sale made around £730 gross profit. Thank you very much to everyone who helped out before, during and afterwards. This is a good result given the relatively low numbers of customers. We might have benefited from slightly better signage in the local area. There was plenty of assistance – for which the Group offers thanks – and this was as stress-free a Bike Sale as ever we’ve had.
