Thursday 12th March – Skit Night


Hi all,

Tomorrow night’s meeting is Skit night…… We’re sure most of you already know what a Skit is, but just in case – it’ll be a short performance by your Patrol, it can involve singing, dancing, jokes and other forms of entertainment……

The theme of the Skits tomorrow is “Light” so feel free to bring props (e.g. torches, lights) and get thinking about what you might want to do!

See you all tomorrow!

Thursday 5th – Meeting – Deliveries

Hi all,delivery boy

There are a couple of smaller areas of Swords which haven’t had directory deliveries done yet. We will do our last set of deliveries tomorrow. It is important that all of the areas of Swords receive their directories, as it is our main fundraiser and allows us to have so many awesome activities!

Thanks – We really appreciate all of your help so far!

Uniform is not needed…… Can you please wear your neckerchief, comfortable walking shoes and rain gear.

Also, if you could bring a bag to carry directories, it would be very useful

See you all tomorrow!
