Xmas Post Service Underway
Our Xmas Post Stamps are now available from locations around Hayling. A letter is being sent home to all Parents with all of the details and also the arrangements for delivery, for which as always we need your help.
The profits this year will cover much of the cost of the Centenary Neckerchiefs (see next page for 2007) which will be provided to every member of the Group.
For those with access to the Internet you can see the details of our service by selecting the "stamp" from the menu on our website at www.haylingscouts.org.uk
This year we will only be doing one delivery from Sunday 17th December. This is due to other Scouting commitments for the Group and also the fact that Christmas Day is on a Monday and it is not realistic to deliver on Christmas Eve.
100 Years of Scouting
100 years ago 12 boys attended an experimental camp on Brownsea Island and next year over 28 million Scouts in 216 Countries will all be celebrating our Centenary Birthday
2007 One World One Promise
This is the motto being introduced for our very special year in 2007. It will be reflected in all Centenary events including the World Scout jamboree to be held in the UK, with 2 attendees from Hayling, Alistair Harris and Jorden Reed.
The Centenary Neckerchief
A special Neckerchief has been produced to celebrate 2007 and there are 4 special badges that every member can earn. The badges will be presented to everyone who completes the special challenges.
As a Group we have decided that we will wear the Neckerchief throughout 2007 and that the cost of these would be covered mainly from this years Xmas Post.
Gifts for Peace
The concept: Every Scout in the world making a contribution towards peace to mark the 100th anniversary of Scouting.
August 1st has been deemed to be the date Scouting started and has been called Sunrise Day.
Every member of the Worldwide Scout movement will celebrate Scouting's Sunrise at 8:00am local time. The events on offer worldwide will vary but a common theme will be everyone remaking their Scout Promise. The promise for the Scout & Explorer sections and Leaders in the UK is:-
On my Honour I promise
There are variations on this promise for Beavers & Cubs and also for different Countries and Cultures.
The Scouts & Explorers will hold their Sunrise Ceremony as part of the Hampshire Scout Jamboree (see next column). A special day is being organised for the Beavers and Cubs.
This will take place on the 1st August 2007 and we will be joining with others from Havant in Emsworth in time for 8:00am in the morning. After this local ceremony we will all be joining the Scouts and Explorers at the Hampshire Jamboree. Coaches have been organised and more details will be provided in the New Year.
Please make a note of the date in your diaries. This is a special Day and one which will never be seen again!
29th July to 4th August 2007
Hampshire Scouts are holding their own Jamboree as part of the 100th celebrations at the New Forest Show Ground. Over 2500 have already signed up for the event and it is also taking on an International flavour with attendees from Ghana & Norway already booked and others expressing an interest.
The programme will be a mixture of traditional scouting activities and a number of hired adventurous challenges and rides!
Details for the event have already been circulated to the Scouts and Explorers and hopefully we will see a good participation from Hayling.
