Acknowledging achievement and rediscovering the Malvern Spirit

To all Malvern Parents and leaders we have email for…

Wow, what a year it's been for us all!
A quick note about Wednesday this week:

It's the end of term, and the time we transition Keas to Cubs, and Cubs to Scouts, so this week on Wednesday we're going to have a group meeting with as many parents as we can get together. Bring a plate and watch your child get the awards they've been working on this year.

6:00pm Openings

6:10 begin awards (Bronze, Silver, Gold section awards and any Be Prepared badges)

6:25 activities in Rugby park

6:40 Invest Keas to their next Cub pack (Matai or Tama)
Invest Cubs to their next Scout troop (Monday or Tuesday)

7:00 informal supper

This will be instead of the regular Kea meeting for the last week of the term, other sections are meeting as normal, check with your section leader for your regular meeting

Due to leader movements as their children move between sections we've had some re-arranging to do.

This has led to some re-thinking of how best to organise our volunteers into a scheme that works for most of us, it's not perfect but I think it will work out well in the long run for us all.

I'll confirm the finer details with you all on Wednesday, there'll be a few new faces and some day changes but I believe that your youngsters will continue to be faced with a challenging, adventurous, outdoors programme of Scouting at Malvern after these changes.


I'm struck by the loss of momentum the group has faced this year, and in part I blame myself for this.

That is why the group really does need a Group Leader who's only doing one thing, and currently as Acting Group Leader I'm not doing a very good job of uniting all the families of the sections.

So, if you've got an inkling that you could devote some time to the group, please consider some of the roles we need to fill:

Group Leader
Committee members (currently the largest group in the zone has only 3 committee members, this isn't enough to do the work they face)
Section leaders: from Keas to Scouts, there's room for you.


Looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday October 5
