WENVOE SCOUTS CHRISTMAS POST
Sadly, the Scout Post has had to be cancelled again this year. We are sorry about the inconvenience to you all, as we know many of you use our Post both to support our Scout Group and to stay connected with friends during the festive season while spreading some cheer. Unfortunately, some parts of Cardiff and the Vale felt they could not commit to sorting and delivering the mail due to some ongoing Covid restrictions. Unless the area is covered fully the scheme is not viable. Plans are currently being developed to resume the Post in 2022.
Despite Covid, Wenvoe Scout Group has been holding meetings during the year. The Beavers and Cubs had regular meetings via Zoom and their leaders set them challenges, so they continued to earn badges. Thanks to the school allowing us to use their playground all the sections were able to meet outdoors in the summer term and September. They are now back to meeting in the Community Centre and even planning camping weekends. The Youth Associations governed how we resumed meetings with some ongoing restrictions, social distancing and mask wearing. Everything is risk assessed increasing the work of our wonderful volunteer leaders and helpers.
The Scout Post is our main source of income and we need your ongoing support, so as we wish you a wonderful Christmas, we hope you can support us by giving via this web page and naming Wenvoe Scouts. https://localgiving.org/appeal/Scoutpost2021/. I know some people do not like to use such websites so if you want to donate, please give us a cheque made payable to Wenvoe Scout Group and pop it in an envelope marked Scouts.co What’s On and leave it in the What’s On box in the Village shop or the library. You can gift aid the donation by adding a note saying the donation is gift aided to Wenvoe Scouts, stating you are a UK taxpayer, signing it and adding your name and address including post code.
Jane Fenton-May, Chair Wenvoe Scout Group
