No Cubs or Keas this week (Easter)

Both Cubs (Easter Monday) and Kea’s (Tuesday school holiday) are cancelled this week.

Have a good and safe Easter Weekend.

Hall rejuventation – KICK OFF!

We are looking for helpers who don’t mind working at heights to help us out preparing, priming, and painting our 82 year old hall.  please register your interest by emailing Erina at [email protected].

We’ve not been kidding, our hall upgrade project is about to commence after the Committee approved the first phase of expenditure.

A comprehensive upgrade plan has been draw up targeting the basement area and storage, kitchen, toilet facilities and the heating/electrical systems. Phase 1 is the southern and western walls.  They’re not looking good 🙁

So, we are going to pop some scaffolding up and get busy. At the same time we will be undertaking repairs to the roof and window sills as required. We hope to get this done while our “drought conditions” extend into April…

Proposed dates and times are:

  • Sat 6th April 09:00 to 14:00 TBC
  • Sun 7th April 09:00 to 14:00 TBC
  • Sat 13th April 09:00 to 14:00
  • Sun 14th April 09:00 to 14:00

The first weekend is subject to us getting the scaffolding set up in time. Obviously both weekends are weather dependant.  Rex Collet & Erina Papp (Augusta’s parents and long-time supporters of the scout group) are coordinating the work and will provide updates when scaffolding/weather becomes more certain.

We sure hope you will be able to help out for at least one of these times – if you can, then please register your interest by emailing Erina at [email protected]. Thanks for your help to improve our scout hall .

Was fantastic weather up  at Kaitoke this weekend and the cubs were very well behaved and all had a great time.  Thanks Chris and Dinesh (Aadi’s Dad) for the pictures.
