Royal Show 2014

The Scout Association and The Guide Association joined forces to not only promote Scouting & Guiding in the Isle of Man. We were also there to help aise money to send Scouts & Guides across to the UK to bring the Peace Light of Bethlehem to the island for the very first time.

 

At the Royal were leaders from 5th Douglas, 3rd Peel Sea Scouts, 1st Ballaugh, Scout Active Support and  on behalf of 3rd Castletown, which is starting in September. Not only did many other leaders and parents drop by, but a group of Guides (and one Cub) from Dublin also came by.  We met young people who were active with their local Scout Group in the UK. We met one person who was a member of their Cub Pack in Wilaston...in Shopshire.

 It was a great weekend networking with the Guides, other leaders and visitors to the island. We had the chance speak with visitors about Scouting and hopefully a few new recruits.

For more pictures from the weekend check out the event's photo gallery on the website.

Adult Training Days for Your Diary

The North West Regional Development Team are coming to deliver some training for us so a good turn out is hoped for. The two days training will focus upon leadership skills, development and management.

Practical Managers' Day

Saturday 6th September

This day is for ALL GSL's, AIC's and AGSL's. Topics will include managing your group, working with your executive committee, reviewing roles, safeguarding, safety and risk assessments, finances, record keeping, challenging behaviour, nights away etc. and any other topics you have concerns about.

Development Day

Suday 7th September

This day is for ALL leaders plus GSL's if they can come and it would be ideal if two leaders from each group and explorer leaders attended. Topics will include recruitment of leaders and young people, development plans, programmes, records and leadership.


Both days will assist us to manage the groups effectively, guided by POR and to ensure procedures and practices are in place. Many questions will be welcome including topics such as camp sleeping separation, risk assessment, disclosure checks and who needs them and I refer to executive committee members and parent helpers [occasional helpers need a disclosure check] accident forms, and anything you like.

Each day will commence at 10 am and finish at 4 pm.

Please bring a packed lunch though tea and coffee will be provided.

Saturday Venue: It is to be hoped that we can meet at our new building at Mullin ny Carty if there is enough room for us with the stores moving in! This venue to be confirmed.

Sunday Venue: 2nd Onchan Scout Hall
