Dear All,

Re: ‘Skills and Chills’, Silverhelme Scout Activity Centre 5-7th June

I am writing to invite you to an all-adult event: skills and chills, focussed on sharing the best practice from the across the District, sharing programme ideas and giving leaders a taste of a wide range of activities. The theme of the weekend will be ‘Outdoor and Adventure, with opportunities to try out a range of activities and develop new skills. The weekend will also provide us all with a fantastic opportunity to get to know each other and socialise- and we have some things planned to help that too…

Whether you are new to Scouting or have been involved for many, many years there will be something for you. It doesn’t matter if you are a leader, section assistant, occasional helper or committee member- everyone is welcome.
