Christmas Card Appeal

The Explorers are encouraging people to write just one extra Xmas card this year, that can be given to someone in residential care.

We have put together some guidance, such as sign off with first names or initials only, not to seal the envelopes (see attached poster)

Hope you can help

Pembs Virtual Camp 2020

The area team have been busy working behind the scenes to bring you the programme for #PembsCamp2020 to be held 18th & 19th July.  You will find the programme packed full of exciting activites, skills for life and challenges, available to download via the Parent Portal.  The hope is for members of every group and unit in the area to come together ‘virtually’ and enjoy what Pembrokeshire Scouts still has to offer. 

During the weekend, a range of online platforms will be used in order to reach out to as many members and potential members throughout the Area and possibly further afield.  There will be ‘Pembrokeshire own’ activities and details of these along with Zoom joining instructions will be sent out to leaders to circulate before the event.

Keep an eye out for some familiar faces dropping in over the weekend and we hope that you will be able to join in the fun. 

COVID-19 Update – Meetings cancelled

In view of the latest Government guidelines the Scout Association has instructed all Scout Groups in the UK to suspend meetings for the duration of the current emergency.  As a Group we had decided that we would cancel meetings and assess the situation after the Easter Holidays but now we will be ‘led’ by Scout Headquarters.   We have also been informed that Foundry House is now closed as are most Halls and other meeting places.   For Scout parents whose children were taking part in the canoe sessions on a Tuesday – these have also been cancelled – and of course the proposed Easter Bingo will not go ahead.   We will keep you updated with any relevant information and when we get the go ahead to re-open etc.    The proposed Scout and Group camps will not now go ahead – but hopefully we can organise a ‘celebration’ activity when we receive the Go Ahead to reopen.    On behalf of all the Leaders of 4th Pembroke Lamphey Scout Group we wish you well and hope you keep healthy and look forward to starting afresh when this period is over.    If you have any questions please contact me and I will do my best to help.

Lamphey Show Fundraising – Pledge Request

As many of you already know, Lamphey Show, which takes place on Wednesday 7th August 2019, is the main fundraiser for the Lamphey Scout Group, and we encourage EVERYONE to get involved in some way.  Every year the group runs a successful stall selling sandwiches, homemade cakes (they sell better than store bought), tea, coffee etc.   The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts also help the parents and leaders to run the stall.

As we did last year, we are asking that all parents/guardians/family members to pledge their support in some small way, setting up the tents, baking cakes, making sandwiches, washing up, serving in the stall, taking the tent down etc.  If you happen to be away on holiday, or working and can’t do anything on the day, perhaps encourage a grandparent or family member to supply a homemade sponge cake, fruit cake, cupcakes etc.   We can arrange pick up, or a drop off, of cakes on the Tuesday evening if you can’t make it down to the Showground.

Please, please, please spare us 5 minutes to follow the link below and reply using the online form.  We will send out further details closer to the day.

COOP Community Fund – Please sign up.

The Group has been successful in being selected as one of the local community groups to be supported through the Coop Community Fund for the next year from today.

What does this mean ?

Anyone shopping at the Coop in Pembroke Main St can choose to support the Group by logging in to the website, signing up as a member (if not already a member), and selecting 4th Pembroke (Lamphey) Scout Group as the community project they want to support.  This means that every time they shop and use their loyalty card, 1% of their spend on Coop branded goods is donated by the Coop to the Group.

What should we do ?

  • If you don’t have a Coop loyalty card already, follow the link below, sign up , and select our Group as the Community Group you want to support.
  • If you already have a loyalty card and have registered on the website, just log in and select our Group.
  • Share this email with local family and friends and encourage them to do the same.

Will it cost me anything ?
            No, this donation is funded by the Coop.  Any discounts you receive for being a member are not affected.

If you have any questions, please let me know.  Please, please, share this with as many people as you can in the area so we can raise as much money as possible for the Group.  All funds will go towards extra tents and cooking equipment for future camps.
