Dear Leaders, Exec, Parents, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers
Thank you so much from everyone at 5th Woodley. Yet again you did us proud, it really was a huge team effort. A special thanks to those that were on the grounds all day long and to those that took part in our walking float and then came and helped on our stalls.
We won the Runners Up trophy for the best Walking Display, thank you to David Davies for organising this, I’m sure next year we will be back to claim our 1st …

Huge thank you to Frank from Asda in Lower Earley who came along to our AGM and presented us a cheque for £200.
Thank you to everyone that donated their tokens whilst shopping in Asda to us. We won by a huge majority.
Don’t forget we are still collecting Sainsbury’s Get Active vouchers, there is a collection box in the hut.

5th Woodley have just purchased some lovely new Bell Tents for use by Cubs and Scouts at upcoming camps and future camping events for years to come.
They look fantastic and if they are properly looked after, should last the Group for years. They have been supplied with a footprint groundsheet enabling pitching & striking the tent without getting it dirty (with care!) and a porch awning that covers the door area well and leaves plenty of room for shoes & equipment outside but not unprotected.
We bet the Scouts can’t wait …

Cub Camp this year (21st to 24th August) as it will only be three nights long so ideal for first time Cubs to camp as well as seasoned pros. It’s being held at a camp site we have been to many times before only this time we will have the luxury of ready to sleep in teepees and a real kitchen for cooking.
There are still a few spaces left for boys and girls, but don’t delay and hand your forms in with £30 deposit asap to avoid disappointment.

Thank you so much to all the leaders, parents and exec that came out to help at the oh so very cold pagoda sale today. It was bitterly cold most of the day, and footfall low but that didn’t stop us raking in £470!
Great team effort. On a plus side we came home with a small fraction of quality pre-loved merchandise for our next sale on 3rd October…..when we will hopefully also have more camping gear to sell too.
Collecting camping equipment after Reading Festival is a great way for us …

We are well in the lead in Asda now, in fact there is not much room for more tokens to fit in our box now. But do keep supporting us and vote for 5th Woodley.
It’s not clear how much longer the boxes will be there but we don’t think that they will be there for much longer. Thank you to everyone that has supported us, we really appreciate it.

Remember we are also now collecting Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers so please ask for them if you shop there, ask your friends, …
