Scout hut

So we started back after New Year and we are now in our temporary home, a Scout hut where many of the brothers of our Brownies go.
We felt really welcome when we turned up, there was shelf space for us in the store room, a bulletin board for us in the hall...little things that made us feel they were happy to have us there.
It was great being able to leave the storage boxes behind instead of having to lug them with us as we usually have to. So much so that I went back the next day and filled up the space with a few more less used boxes and suddenly my garage has some space!
We also liked being able to have a drink during Brownies, very civilised.
To top it off, all 26 girls were there that night (there's usually someone off sick!) plus all 26 sets of parents paid up the term's subs!
We have a few glitches to iron out, when my son goes to Scouts there is a 15 min gap between Cubs and Scouts and I can see why, we did find the chaos of getting Brownies out and Guides in didn't work well.
But all in all, a great first night back and a lovely new home.

Oh, not your hut...I was going to say 'great field' for games. Amazing that 26 subs paid. Nice one!

Actually our hut does have a field next to it too, we can't wait for the lighter nights!

Wow, how do you get them all to a) turn up and b) pay up on the first week?! Wish I could teach my Rangers that trick.

And I really, really like the idea of being able to partake of adult beverages during or after a meeting. :-)

We don't know! We told the amount before Christmas, and reinforced we'd like it in named envelopes as the first night would be chaos. About half did do that, the other half didn't but did still pay!
