Help required for car parking duties

We have two important events coming up soon and both will help to raise our scouting profile. These events rely on the support of Scouts, Leaders and others.

Manx Aid is on the 4th May (contact Julie Leece) and Tynwald Day is on 7th July (contact Colin Brew). Help us show everyone Scouting's community spirit.

JOTA-JOTI Logo Contest 2014

The contest to design the logo for JOTA-JOTI 2014 was launched Wednesday 23 April 2014. Entries will be able to be submitted via this website and via www.facebook.com/jota.joti.wosm.

Tynwald Day Car Parking

The Clerk of Tynwald has again asked the scouts if we can look after the car parking for Tynwald day on Monday 7th July.

Scout Active Support and Ellan Vannin Scout Network will again lead this process but we need plenty of volunteer help. Adults from any section or Scouting role are welcome but must be of Explorer age or upwards (14+) please.

In return for an early start (we meet at approx. 7.30 am) and lots of arm waving you will be rewarded with a free lunch and a donation to the scout section of your choice. You should be all done and fed by 2.00 pm latest (hopefully earlier).

If you would like to volunteer please reply to this e-mail or phone me as soon as possible as I need to confirm to the Clerk of Tynwald that we do have enough man (and woman) power available to cover all of the car parks.

Marshall's Needed for the Manx Aid Carnival Day

We have been asked to help marshall for the 4th May to help with carparking at Nobles Park for the Manx Aid Carnival Day after seeing the great work we do at Tynwald Day. The Manx Aid charity help local people through a various manor of different ways and will pay the Isle of Man Scout Association for helping. All Scouts and leaders that help will have refreshments provided.

We require marshalls from 10.30 to 3pm but will be allocated a time to save being there for the full time.

This is a fantastic opportunity to show the good that Scouts do and our willingness to help with the community. Thank you to those groups who have already forwarded numbers to me. We will also have a stall there again any volunteers gratefully received.

I appreciate it is the school holidays but l need to confirm that we are able to do the job in hand and confirm that we can definately help.

If you or your Scouts are able to help please contact Julie Leece, jjwd@hotmail.co.uk.

Hill Skills Training a Great Sucess

Nearly 20 leaders took part in a hill skills training day on Sunday. The day was for all leaders to come and refresh and learn some mountaineering skills such as navigation, route planning, hill safety and group management amongst other areas. 

The groups were walking in the Block Eary and were exploring lots of different features on the way. 

Hopefully after the training leaders will have even more confidence and knowledge to take young people on adventures.

There was a good turn out and more leaders are wanting to do more training like this so keep an eye out for up coming events such as the practical skills day on the 17th of May at Ardwhallen outdoor centre between 10-4.

Please contact Jay Thompson for more information. 

To see more photos from the day see the event's photo gallery.
