Tamesider May 2020

Hi All 

Here is the May 2020 Edition of the Tamesider.  

It has not stopped Scouting. We are still holding adult training, which are being completed using the 365 system. 

Each District have planned to keep leaders in touch with each other. The leaders are planning programmes for their Units for when we can restart our meetings. 

Many Sections, Groups and District have been active. A few of them are in the Tamesider this month. 

If you have held any activities, please let me know and I can get you in the Tamesider. 

Please also check your record on Compass, if you are a member of scouting, to ensure you have your ‘scout’ e-mail recorded, as this is where HQ, County, Districts and Groups will be sending any Scout communications. 

Ken Marks. 

Yours in Scouting 

Gill Cummins: Gone Home

I have some very sad news that our ADCIT and GSL of 339th Gill Cummins sadly died this weekend following a short illness due to coronavirus. All our prayers must go to her and her family at this sad time. She will be sadly missed by us all in NT and GME for her work in supporting young people and Leaders in Scouting. She has now Gone Home.

Wood Badge Award

Danielle Ives of 250th Manchester (St. Mary’s) Cub pack was presented with her wood beads following successful completion of the adult training programme. Andrew Morton, District Commissioner, was on hand to present them in front of Cubs and leaders on Thursday 27th February 2020. Akela Danielle was lost for words but quite rightly proud of herself. Andy said it was pleasure to award Danielle her wood beads after all her hard work.

New Tech for NT

Julieanne Kay our ADCWS has spent an evening trying to get our oldies Gill ADCC, Ken LTM and our very oldie oldie Alan DAFT, trained in this wonderful new world of new technology so we can put news and posts on our great NT web site. It may be a bit iffi to start with but hopefully it will get better as the oldies get dragged into this new world of communications. Apparently after all the training Julieanne says we haved passed the training ok, problem is by tomorrow the oldies may have forgot it all, but we live in hope. If you have any ideas of what you would like to see please contact us here

Come Dine With Cubs

No photo description available.

In this year of Olympics and Euro2020 we will be having an international theme for the cooking competition. The challenge will be to create a two-course meal consisting of a main and a dessert from a country of your choice.

As always points will be given for a creative menu, complex skill levels, hygiene, value for money, presentation and teamwork.

Each pack can enter one team of up to 5 members. There is a spending limit of £10 per team. Seasonings and ingredients that need only a pinch or a teaspoon will not be counted in this total. Please see the separate sheet for average costs for many common ingredients.

The meals should be cooked on camp cookers using gas. You will need to provide all of your own equipment. Please see one of the district leaders if you need to borrow any cookers and we will try to help out.

Date: Sunday 29th March 2020

Venue – 2/1st Hurst HQ

Times: 10am to set up
