100 Club Results
Congratulations to Dennis Doney, Brenda Kenny and Sandra Reed who each won £25 in our latest draw.

100 Club 2010 / 2011
We are now renewing membership for the 2010 club and existing members will receive a form and details in the next few days. A copy of the form is being sent home to every parent and for our supporters you can get a form from our website or by contacting Ian Hawke.

World Jamboree Events
Those Scouts attending the World Jamboree 2011 in Sweden need to raise over £2000 to take part. About 25% of this total is to help Scouts from the poorer Countries of the world to be able to send a contingent to Sweden.

To help with these costs, a number of events are being planned over the next 12 months. The first of these is a family quiz that will take place on Saturday 20th February. The cost is £5 per person to include a Ploughman's Supper. To book your team please select the Family Quiz logo above Latest News on the home page of our website (www.haylingscouts.org.uk) or contact the Kenny Family on 92468093.

Other events include a Race Night on April 24th, Car Washing. Details when known will appear on our website and in our newsletter.

The Scouts are also looking for jobs appropriate to their age and ability to raise money towards their expeditions. If you have any jobs then please contact us and we will assess whether or not we feel able to help. You can either send an email to gsl@haylingscouts.org.uk or contact Ian Hawke.

Eagle Troop win Cooking Competition
Peewit Patrol of Eagle Troop won the District Cooking competition just ahead of Otter Patrol from Hayling Lions. Each patrol taking part were given the same ingredients and devised their own menus. Peewit patrol used the Salmon and salad for their starter followed by Turkey and vegetable stir fry and the meal finished with their own form of fresh fruit cheesecake.

Hayling's Got Talent
Where we have an email address, you should have received details of this event being organised by the Lions Club of Hayling. Don't forget that you need to book a place in the auditions on the 14th or 21st February. We know that amongst the members of the group we have some incredible talent - so now is your chance to show it!

Typical Scout Challenge
In Scouts we often set challenges for the patrols. These challenges often involve providing them with some equipment and then setting them an objective.

Pioneering challenges, building something out of ropes and poles prove to be great fun and recently Ed set Eagle troop the challenge to build a frame to get the whole patrol as far as possible off the ground.


Group Fun Day 2010
Saturday 26th June 2010
Please make a note in your diaries for this event which is on a theme of "basics of Scouting". More details after Easter.

Annual Census
Every January we have to complete a census return for the Group. The Census includes all of our youth sections, plus leaders, our Group Development Team and other regular helpers. It is great to report another growth in our youth membership, particularly with the Scout section and overall we show a growth of 12% on 2009. This is the 5th consecutive year when our numbers have grown. Clearly the Leaders are doing something right!!
