Week Ending 08.02.14
Everton Volunteers Needed
Everton Camp will be closed for site maintenance over the weekend of 21 to February and volunteers are needed to come and help over the weekend.
The plan is to work on site and try to get it looking good after the winter. It will be a tough task and may need more than one weekend.
ADC Activities Paul Laverty said: “We will be looking for volunteers to come along and help over the weekend even if just for a few hours.It is our site, let’s make good use of it this year and take pride in it.”
There will be room to stay over each night, but beds are limited and will go to those who require them.
If you have time to spare, email Paul on moc.liamgnull@etispmactuocsnotreve or phone 07817396157.
85th Take On A Curling Challenge
Scouts from the 85th Wemyss Bay had a go at curling last week as part of their Scottish Challenge. The group visited the Waterfront where they were shown the ropes by regulars as part of the club’s Try Curling initiative.
After lots of slipping and sliding most were able to throw a stone or brush the ice without too much trouble. Thanks to Cameron and the team at the club for hosting the Scouts and coaching them so well.
Young Leaders’ Training – Module A
Fresh young leaders from across the district gathered at the Beacon Arts Centre last week to begin their path in leadership. Scouting offers amazing opportunities to enhance leadership skills, make yourself more employable and gain valuable experiences that will help if you decide to continue volunteering as an adult. It’s a position of responsibility that’s challenging but fun, and you’ll know that you’re making a real difference. Good luck.

The 70th Group have been getting started on some of the activities building up to this summer’s Commonwealth Games.
