1st Clevedon Scouts Christmas Post 2017

Posted on November 26th, 2017 by Mike_Provis

1st Clevedon Scout Group runs a local Christmas Card postal service for Clevedon residents each year. The money raised from this event is often in excess of £1000, which  helps to  keep the Scout Group running and to maintain the various activities we offer all our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Many businesses in Clevedon support us each year by selling our Scout Christmas Stamps and having one of our Scout Christmas Post Boxes in their shop. Throughout December the Scout Group collects, sorts and delivers Christmas Cards, and this is where we need to ask you and your children for help and support.

For this fundraiser to be a success this year we need help in the following way

CHRISTMAS POST BOXES AT LOCAL RETAILERS

Christmas Post Boxes and Stamps are being delivered to the retailers that support our service. There are approximately 20 venues across Clevedon, details of which can be seen in the following images and will be posted on our facebook page soon:

HELP TO COLLECT THE POST FROM THE RETAILERS

We would be grateful for volunteers to collect the Christmas Cards from the retailers and drop them to either the Scout Hall or a member of the Christmas Post Team. The following dates are the collection dates:

  • Monday 4th December & Monday 11th December
  • Friday 8th December & Friday 15th December

HELP SORT THE POST

The upstairs meeting room becomes our sorting office from the beginning of December. Here the Christmas Cards are franked and then sorted into their delivery round. This years sorting dates are:

  • Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th – Scout Hut and post sorting room open from 6pm
  • Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th – Scout Hut and post sorting room open from 6.30pm
  • Saturday 9th and Saturday 16th – from 9.30 am

SIGN UP TO A DELIVERY ROUND AND HELP DELIVER THE POST

A board will be placed in the entrance hall on Monday 27th November, where you or your son/daughter can sign up to a Christmas Card delivery round. The Christmas Cards will be sorted into the delivery rounds and available for you to collect from the sorting room on most nights that there is a Beaver, Cub or Scout Meeting taking place.

How do I sign up to help out? – Members of our Christmas post team will be available to answer questions and take your details at the Scout Hall when meetings are being held during the week beginning Monday 27th November.

Please help us to make this another successful year for the group and offer a great service to the people of Clevedon that support us.

Thank you from your Beaver, Cub & Scout Leaders

The Scout Hut gets a Makeover

Posted on October 28th, 2017 by Mike_Provis

1st Clevedon Scout Hut has had somewhat of a makeover thanks to a community minded local company (PB Design) and some of the leaders and exec committee. 14 hours of painting on the Friday followed by another session on the Saturday saw the main hall, the entrance hall the stairwell and the landing spruced up so it’s now looking and smelling nice. All in time for the birthday party that was booked in for the Sunday.

Here’s a sneak preview of what it looks like now – in 360 degree loveliness courtesy of Google (use your mouse or finger to move it around):

The Scout group would like to say a massive thank you to the army of volunteers from PB Design that gave up their time and worked so hard to complete the work:

Also a big thank you to the Clevedon DIY Centre for their support and to everyone that helped with the clean up the weekend before – and boy it did take some cleaning! As they say – it’s all in the prep work, so without your help the painting couldn’t have happened.

The coming weeks should see new notice boards, cleaned flags and plaques put back up along with some other exciting additions in planning. So let us know what you think.

We’d like to attack the toilets next so if you feel that you could help in anyway then please let us know – pass your details on to one of the leaders or contact us through the website.

Our Beavers need you

Posted on March 9th, 2016 by Mike_Provis

1st Clevedon Scouts are currently looking for volunteers to fill the positions of Beaver leader and/or assistant leaders to help run the Waverly Beavers that meet at 6pm on Thursdays.

The sessions last for an hour and are during term time only. They are lots of fun for the kids and for the leaders, assistants and parent helpers. There will be lots of opportunities to do all sorts of fun things including crafts, cooking, outdoor hikes and games, camping sleepovers, Christmas carol singing – too many to mention here.

There are also new leaders for the 1st Clevedon Brunel Beaver colony that are currently going through training, so there will be plenty of help to get you up and running. We won’t throw you in on your own – we’ll be with you every step of the way until you feel confident enough to take over.

It’s a great time to join the 1st Clevedon Scouting family as a volunteer as there are exciting new changes within the group to improve the facilities, introduce new processes and make things easier to run the individual groups/units.

Please check out the pages of our new website to get more information on who we are and what we do.

If you would like more info on the available positions, please leave a comment or contact us.

Sainsbury’s Active Kids Vouchers

Posted on February 1st, 2016 by Mike_Provis

1st Clevedon Scouts are collecting Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers in 2016 so please save them and drop them off at the Scout hut whenever you can.

The earlier a child learns to eat well and keep active, the more likely they are to live well too. That’s why your support for Active Kids can make such a difference to children’s futures. So collect as many vouchers as you can to help us to get our hands on some exciting new sports and cooking equipment and experiences for our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

It’s easy to collect vouchers for Active Kids 2016. Simply shop in Sainsbury’s stores and online at sainsburys.co.uk and you will earn Active Kids vouchers on your shopping.

In Sainsbury’s Locals, you will get one voucher for every £5 you spend. You’ll notice these vouchers are larger than the ones you receive in Sainsbury’s supermarkets and have a photograph on them.

In Sainsbury’s Supermarkets you’ll receive 1 voucher for every £10 you spend. So if you spend £40 you’ll get four vouchers, but what’s new is that they’ll all be printed on one piece of paper. These vouchers are white and smaller in size, with no photograph on them.

Once you’ve collected your vouchers, bring them in to the Scout hut and deposit them in the box in the hallway.

If you’d like to see what great equipment and activities we could order, take a look at this year’s catalogue.
