Sainsburys Active Kids 2015

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015
3HH Group Beavers Cubs Explorers Scouts

Hi all, yes once again we’re off on the voucher collecting trail and hoping to make good use of our investment made last year. Investment I hear you ask? Well yes, instead of spending all our vouchers last year we saved them to add to whatever we collect this year to be able to ‘buy’ a bigger item, the catch is, we have to spend these this year or lose them :-(
So, once the vouchers start to appear please start collecting and pass our way as it saves you money. Saves us money I hear you ask? Well yes, as we’re able to supplement or replace our camping, outdoor and games equipment which would otherwise be bought from what we collect in subs.
Vouchers can be collected from any Sainsburys and you get 1 voucher for £10 spent at larger stores, 1 per £5 spent at smaller ones and if anyone in the queue says they don’t want them, offer to take them off their hands! Equally, if you have the time perhaps you could persuade the manager of your local Sainsburys to collect unwanted vouchers on our behalf and if you are able to supply a box for this it can prove very effective, but it probably won’t work in the larger stores.
Finally, when your ‘wodge’ is getting too large to handle please bring it down to the HQ and deposit in the correct slot of the box. If possible (as it saves many hours laborious counting) if you can count your vouchers and write the number on a slip of paper and lovingly surround them with a rubber band before popping them in the box (yes you can lift the lid) then we’d really appreciate it.
This really is an excellent scheme and has provided this group with many valuable items ranging from tents to footballs over the years, so please support your local Scout group, we are a charity after all :-)

All the Info you need for Borough Camp July 2014

Thursday, June 26th, 2014
Cubs Scouts

Dear Parents, Scouts & Cubs
With Borough camp just over a week away 4th-6th July 2014, please find below and attached all the info you need to get to and from site and to have a brilliant weekend.
Drop Off Please arrive to our site at Walton Firs at 7pm on Friday (allow a fair bit of time for travel and drop off – it will be busy!).
Please ensure you have had dinner at home before you come (light snack – cake will be only thing available Friday evening once on site). Please Arrive in uniform.

Address; Walton Firs Activity Centre, Convent Lane, Cobham, Surrey, KT11 1HB
Walton Firs (location)
Walton Firs Site Map
3HH pitch will be on the training field which is in the Lower bottom Right Corner (over the Ravine Footbridge) as you look at the Camp Site Plan (for those that have been before – same place as usual)

The emergency home contact will be: Martin Riddell

Kit list previously sent out with invite but please bring and note the the following items (some that are additional)
• We are only going for two nights, I would prefer if all kit is in holdalls and not suitcases as these use up a lot of room in the tents.
• Sun cream and sunhat – although it is looking less likely that we will have the amazing weather we had last year, please ensure these are packed (likewise will also need raincoat)
• Assault course clothes – If we get to use the assault course you will get v. muddy – consider sending some clothes you don’t mind never wearing again (and a plastic bag to take them home in).
• Tuck money – There is a provi (shop) on site but could we please ask that pocket money brought to camp is a sensible amount (£2-3) and ask cubs not to go mad on sweets (no over the top sugar intake induced late night sick events this year please)
Bring money in a sealed named envelope.
• Sometimes it’s helpful for cubs to know the time as lots of activities are in slots. If you have a v cheap watch you don’t mind not seeing again they may find it useful.
• Please bring cake for all to share, nut free please.

Parent help rota – message from Kate Delaney Borough camp is nearly upon us and many of you kindly agreed to come and help out. We are short of help on Sat pm and very short on Sunday am, so if you can volunteer that would be brilliant – or even if you could swap from a shift that has lots of parents on it already.

In case you are wondering what you will be doing; Fri am at Scout Hut – this is helping us to load up the vans (and later on site if you can stay around). The on-site volunteering will be helping us to run our activity. Each section puts on an activity for all of the cubs / scouts to enjoy (there are around 700 cubs / scouts from all across Richmond on the camp).

In theme with the World Cup we will be running a Brazilian Beach bar where cubs will be making fruit juice drinks, and flags of the World Cup countries to help us decorate our bar. We even have sand and an inflatable palm tree!

It’s really important we have parents to help us put on this activity as the leadership team need to make sure we are looking after our cubs/scouts and will be ferrying them to and from various competitions – we will probably need at least 3 parents on the “bar” at all times….

Finally the Sun pm slot will be helping us to pack up and take all the tents down.
Thanks so much for offering to help – we couldn’t do it without you!
And if you are not shown on the rota and can help please do get in touch.

Collection (going home on Sunday)
Unless we advise otherwise collection will be after the closing ceremony at 3:30pm on Sunday.
We will need help unloading kit back at the hut once we get back, so please to tag along, the more bodies we have the quicker we all get home, thanks.

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014
3HH Group Beavers Cubs Explorers Scouts

All, Sainsburys have now finished giving out the Active Kids vouchers and we already have a great total of over 7000 vouchers with those we banked last year. We now have until the end of June to get our order in and I have no doubt there’s many a family with a stash of vouchers still to be dropped off at the HQ. As such we’ll leave the box at the HQ until after the AGM on Sunday 15th June at which point we’ll ‘close the books’. Every year we lose a large number of vouchers because they come in late so please do your best to get them in by this date; we cannot use them in the follwing year so we lose them :-(
Many thanks for all the vouchers you’ve collected so far, I’ll let you know what we order on a future post.

Sainsbury’s Active Kids Scheme

Sunday, February 9th, 2014
3HH Group Beavers Cubs Explorers Scouts

Last year was a real success for us with our best ever total collected allowing us to place a really valuable order for lightweight tents. So here we are in 2014 and we’re off on the collection trail again and why wouldn’t we as this superb scheme saves us money in being able to order sports, games and camping equipment and it doesn’t even cost us postage!
It would be really useful when collecting your vouchers and posting them in the box in the HQ if you can batch them up separately in 1s or 5s with rubber bands, adding a note of the number of vouchers enclosed as this will save us hours of counting.
Vouchers can be collected until 20th May and we have to place our order by the end of June latest so please do get these in before the closing date as every year we waste quite a number of vouchers as they come in after we’ve been forced to place our order. Many thanks in advance and just remember, every voucher donated helps to keep your subs down!

Water Rocket Challenge!

Friday, June 21st, 2013
Cubs Scouts

The Cubs and Scouts had a fantastic evening on Wed 19 June 2013 at NPL taking part in the Water Rocket Challenge.

Both the Cubs and Scouts had spent time during Section Meetings learning about the mechanics and design of the Rockets, and then having a go at building and launching them.

The Cubs took part in the Water Rocket Workshops at the NPL event, launching Rockets they had made previously and making and launching more under the guiding eyes and hands of the Staff and Volunteers at the Event.

The Scouts took part in the Challenge Competition – this involved launching a rocket 3 times and attempting to get it into the scoring zones marked out on the field. They thought that they were out of the running after some rocket repair/misfire and launching issues (breaking a brand new launcher on the second round) but still managed to get second place and only missed first by 6 points. Well done 3HH. First place next year ;)

A wonderful fun evening enjoyed by all!

A Big Thanks from all at 3HH to all the organisers and volunteers that ran this event.

Group shooting competition for all adults, Scouts and Explorers Saturday May 11th

Friday, March 15th, 2013
3HH Group Beavers Cubs Explorers Scouts

Hi all, after a brief pause last year, we’ll be once again running our fun group shooting competition on Saturday 11th May 2013. This is an enjoyable event with at least four different shooting activities and medals in a number of categories for those crack-shots out there. We’ll be target shooting with both rifles and pistols, enjoying a field shooting competition outside and combining this with the nerve-racking knockout competition. Adults don’t need to have shot before so there’s no need to worry if you’re a complete novice. If you’d like to enter the competition please return the entry slip on the flyer along with a declaration for adults and/or a permission to shoot form for the under 18s.
Please note the closure date for entries and be aware that any entries received after that date may be refused.

Well it’s been a bit of a quieter year for the Sainsbury’s Active Kids voucher scheme this time round. I don’t know whether it’s been the weather stopping us from going shopping, competition from the schools or people varying their shopping habits, however we still managed to collect some 1755 vouchers. As this is around half of what we usually collect, we’re going to bank them all this time round, saving them up for next year where we can put them towards a bigger order. Many thanks for all your returns and if you’re collecting Tesco vouchers, that scheme is still running so please get them to us.
