Spring Coffee Morning

Our Coffee Morning is back! 

Tickets cost £3 each and will provide you with tea/coffee or cold drink and a hot filled roll – other goodies will be available at extra cost!

Our ever popular Tombola also returns and donations for it are invited.

As it’s Spring we’re making use of our Grounds for some stalls and a ‘Scout Family Car Boot Sale’ – to sell…. anything!! A pitch costs £10 and can be reserved online, https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/spring-coffee-morning-tickets-326393641167 .

Also again – all the Brownie Packs from Inverleith St. Serf’s Church are taking part and have stalls both inside and out.

To ensure the event is as successful as possible we’ll be issuing out tickets to each family with a Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer Scout in our Group. Please try to sell the tickets to family and friends, or use them yourself! Any unsold tickets should be returned to the Section Leaders.

Everyone and anyone is, of course, very welcome to come along – so tell your friends, family and neighbours!

Tickets will be on sale on the door, but it will help us if you reserve tickets online in advance before paying on the day, https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/spring-coffee-morning-tickets-326393641167 .

We look forward to seeing you all on the 14th May.

Inspiring Talks Series

We are delighted to launch our Inspiring Talks Series which features people who have excelled in their fields and achieved success in tackling and overcoming significant challenges.

Our first talk is on 25th March at 7pm where we will hear from Derek Spence who has completed the infamous Marathon des Sables (MdS) three times – a multistage ultra-marathon in the Sahara Desert described as the “toughest footrace in the world”. Last year Derek rowed across the Atlantic in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge – the toughest rowing race in the world!  Derek will share some of his experiences and talk about the challenges of endurance events and what motivates him.

The live event will be held on zoom and will last up to 1 hour which includes the talk and a live Q&A session.
