GSL’s REPORT November 2019

Hi everyone,

On Friday 27th September I went to the Beaver Scout Colony to invest the latest member of our Group.   Although I have invested a number of younger members, it isn’t often that I get the opportunity to invest an adult, Helen Orlando, our new Assistant Beaver Scout Leader, who I am sure will be a great asset to the Group.

The November Fayre is nearly upon us and will take place on Saturday 16th November at the Surbiton Royal British Legion.  As you are all aware this is our biggest fund-raising event.  All of the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts have been given two books of raffle tickets.  Please try and sell as many as you can.  Should you need any more please ask your Leaders.  It would be great if as many members as possible can support the Leaders on mufti evenings and at the event itself.  Parents – the bar is open to non-members on the day!

Please put the date in your diary and bring friends and family along for a great afternoon of fun.  Whatever you can do, the proceeds help us to run events for your children during the year.

All the Sections have been very busy during the past weeks and I look forward, as I ‘m sure you do, to reading their reports.

Lastly, it was with great sadness that we said goodbye to yet another former member of 1st Tolworth, Alan Lee, who passed away on the 28th August.  Alan was Akela of the Cub Pack for a number of years.  He gave a lot of time to the Group and most of us older Leaders camped with Alan at some point.  Our thoughts go out to both of his sons, James and Matthew, together with his wife Shirley.

Warm regards,


Group Scout Leader
