HILBRE SCOUT GROUP NEED YOUR VOTE!
As you may have noticed, our HQ is in need of a bit of TLC to make it a pleasanter place for our young people to meet. As part of a wider “Hilbre Scout Group HQ Improvement Project”, we have applied to the West Wirral Community Fund for £975 towards replacing the HQ’s 3 external fire doors. The decision to grant these funds rests on a public vote. Therefore, please can you take a few minutes to vote for us using the attached link. We are under Hoylake/Meols – Hilbre Scout Group HQ Improvement Project. The more votes we get, the more likely we are to secure the funding – so please also ask your friends and family to vote for this worthy project!
The link is as follows: http://www.wirral.gov.uk/community-and-neighbourhoods/neighbourhoods/wirral-west-constituency/how-get-involved
There are also paper copies of the voting form available at all Wirral West Libraries with a secure voting box for anyone without access to a computer to place their vote. We will arrange to have some paper copies available at the Scout HQ before and after meetings too.
Voting ends at 12 midday Friday 18 March, so don’t delay!
Wirral Scout Post is almost upon us.

On Sunday 26th April, 23 members of Hilbre Scout Group joined over 300 other Scouts from across the West Wirral Scout District participating in the St Georges Day Parade through West Kirby.
This year the parade route was slightly different and slightly longer than previous years as we paraded out towards Hilbre Island.
It was great to see all sections represented on the island and whilst there we renewed our promise and learnt about St George.
After a spot of lunch, it was time to head back to West Kirby ready to be dismissed.
Many Thanks to all that turned up.
There is still space in the Scout section at Hilbre Scout Group. Please use the contact us form to find out more
On Saturday 27th April, Hilbre Cubs gathered together to make their way to RAF Cosford near Wolverhampton. Their journey started at 9am when the bus picked them up and the journey commenced. When we arrived, we had a look at some of the aircraft that were used during the wars. As we ventured into the next hanger, we were greeted by a tour guide who allowed us special permission to cross the barriers to have a look at a rotary flying kite. She met us again a short time later to explain about the Spitfire plane.
After a quick lunch due to the weather, we went to the 4d cinema where we walked on the moon and also flew a war plane. Whilst we were waiting for the cinema we had a go at some of the experiment activities they had available.
When we ventured into the second hanger, we stopped in front of a military tank and invested 3 cubs.
All in all the cubs had a good day and they all achieved their Air Activities Badge.
Well Done to all who attended.
