Gift Aid

As a registered Charity, Cranleigh Scout Group is able to claim an additional 25p for every pound of the money paid in as subscriptions each year. This is a valuable source of income for the group, with a potential £3000 a year available to us. In order to be able to claim Gift Aid, we need a signed Gift Aid form from the person who pays the subscription fee.

We are in the processing of updating our Gift Aid records and I’m asking all eligible parents/subscription payers to complete and return the current Gift Aid form to us as soon as possible.

The form can be found in PDF format here and paper copies are available in the Cranleigh Scout HQ. Please complete and return to a leader as soon as possible.

This really is a very valuable income stream for us and a very low effort fundraiser!

Yours in Scouting

Colin Desmond
Group Scout Leader

Remembrance Day Service and Parade.  

Sunday12th November 2017

10.15am at Scout HQ

 Each year we remember those who have died in conflict at the War Memorial in Cranleigh. It is a privilege to attend and honour the fallen with the other service organization, particularly the other youth groups. We have been allocated prime space inside the Remembrance garden. All Scouts ( Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers ) are expected to attend the Remembrance Day Service and Parade meeting at the Scout Headquarters at 10.15am.

Please wear full uniform ( shoes not trainers ) and  remember to wear something warm underneath your Scout shirt. Coats will be permitted in the event of bad weather. Be aware that the police will be closing the High Street from 10.30am to 11.30am. Afterwards we shall march to the British Legion HQ – please collect your child from here about 11.30am.   Parents are welcome along the route and at the service.  Thank you.

Survival Camp June 2017

The Scouts all had a great time on Survival Camp, I’m sure it was one of the sunniest camps we’ve had! We built some great shelters, slept out in the woods, made fire strikers, and cooked over open fires.

Some of the Dads came along for Fathers Day on Sunday, the Scouts showed off the shelters they had slept in, helped the Dads make fire strikers, and cooked lunch for them over their fires.

A big thank you to all the leaders, Kathryn, James, Andrew, Graham, Colin and Marcus for giving up their weekend and all their hardwork and support that went into running a great camp for our Scouts. Thank you also to Ray, for letting us take over his field for the weekend.
