|June 2, 2014||to||June 8, 2014|
Taking place from 2-8 June 2014, Scout Community Week not only gives us the opportunity to tackle real issues with the community and raise funds for local Scouting, but it’s a chance to promote and champion all the inspiring things we do during the other 51 weeks of the year.
We would like to hear from you if you have an idea for a project, want to get involved to help us in some way, or even want to be kept informed of the things we may get up to.
You can contact us through this form, or by emailing webmaster.
More information about Scout Community Week 2014 can be found at http://members.scouts.org.uk/communityweek
The next Swimming Gala is booked for Saturday 8th March at Fleming Park, 6.30pm start.
Please find attached copies of the Cub/Scout entry list for the forthcoming Swimming Gala on the 8th March. Please forward immediately to your Cub/Scout Leaders. These forms will soon be available on the District website.
All forms to be returned to me along with the Trophies awarded last year if you have them.
As a result of last years performance from a few swimmers, please ensure that ALL competitors are actually able to swim the distance and don’t just take their word for it. This has come from Fleming Park, when I signed the agreement to use the pool.
Here is the Staff Rota to run the District Scout Shop for 2014.
This version has had the phone numbers removed, so if you need to contact anyone on it, you will need to consult the District Directory (the version emailed out to the people on the Rota will have had the phone numbers included).
You will have seen on the news the dreadful scenes from the Philippines.
On Friday, Typhoon Haiyan made landfall, causing widespread devastation.
This is the largest tropical storm on record and it’s feared that more than 10,000 people have died, that more than 600,000 people have been displaced from their homes and that over 9 million people have been affected.
We are waiting to hear from WOSM what the impact has been on our Scouting friends in the Boy Scouts of the Philippines.
You may wish to talk about the Typhoon and the impact that this has had on the people of the Philippines with young people from your Group. To help you, there are a number of related resources available for you on the Scout Association website: visit scouts.org.uk/pol and search for “shelterbox”. Undoubtedly many of you are wanting to support the efforts of the various relief agencies working in the region – if you are moved to make a personal financial contribution then please consider doing so via the Disasters Emergency Committee website dec.org.uk, or via our partner ShelterBox
With best wishes,
UK International Commissioner

Fancy taking part in an International Expedition to East Africa?
Then Hampshire Scouts are looking for you…
