Investiture and Family hike this weekend

The Investiture and family hike is on this weekend. We are meeting at 11 on Sunday in the carpark of Barnaslingan Woods. Map here

We should be finished at 1 latest. Going to do a short walk, do the investiture, have a snack – parents should bring a flask and some cake – and then finish the walk. Fairly easy walk but not suitable for buggies. It will be cold so wrap up well.

Looking for a new treasurer

Dear Parents,

We are looking for a volunteer to become our honorary treasurer. Our last treasurer retired as of August 31st.

The treasurer looks after the Group’s Finances. This minimises the section leaders administration responsibilities, freeing them up to spend the maximum amount of time possible on scouting with the children.

The main duties are
1. Banking money received from scouts (subs / Summer camp / scout activiites)
2. Paying expenses (monthly rent, annual insurance and expenses as required by scout / cub / venture leaders )
3. Maintaining a record of finances and making an annual return to Scouting Ireland
4. Attend Group Council meetings approx 3 times a year. (these are meetings that all 54th scout leaders attend to review the Group’s activities and make plans for the future)

This is not rocket science so anyone good organisation skills can do it.

The previous treasurer (Maeve Grogan) will do a full handover.

If you have any queries please call me on 085 1544155

Kind Regards

David Flanagan
Honorary Group Treasurer
