Registration for membership of 1st Hillsborough Scouts for 2018/2019 will take place on Monday 3rd September, 7-8pm, at our hall. Registration is open only to existing members and to joiners from the waiting list who have been offered places. Registration forms will be emailed to parents by 31st August; we have 200+ members to register so it would be appreciated if parents could fill out forms in advance.
Our Scout Group has been growing very rapidly. There’s lots happening. We could still do with some more volunteers for September 2018 to help particularly with Beavers (6-8 years) through to Explorers (14-18). We’re flexible: with enough leaders, we can cover when people can’t be there. Volunteering is satisfying and fun. You’ll make new friends. Leaders’ kids are guaranteed places in the Scout Group. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The waiting list at 1st Hillsborough Scout Group is now frozen, while we make offers of places for September 2018. There are more kids on the waiting list for each section than available places, so unfortunately not everyone will get a place. Leaders’ kids have top priority, then children who have brothers or sisters currently in the Scout Group. We will be in touch with all parents who have children on the waiting list in the coming weeks.

Caving at Belfast Activity Centre
Explorer Winter Camp
1st Hillsborough Explorers recently enjoyed a successful winter camp at Ardnavally and Belfast Activity Centre. Lots of action and probably not enough sleep! Back at base, they are now collecting outdoor gear for the homeless – boots, gloves, hats, coats, sleeping bags, blankets, etc. If you have any second-hand gear that you can spare, drop it in at our hall 1930-2130 on a Thursday evening. Thanks!
Registration for membership of 1st Hillsborough Scouts for 2017/2018 will take place on Monday 4th September, 7-8pm, at our hall. Registration is open only to existing members and to joiners from the waiting list who have been offered places. Registration forms will be emailed to parents by 1st September; we have a large number of members to register so it would be appreciated if parents could fill out forms in advance.
We are expecting to make offers to new members during early August – parents will be contacted by email or text. Our waiting list is long, so unfortunately we will not be able to offer places to everyone. Please note that a child who is offered a place and does not wish to accept at this time will go back on to the waiting list – a place will not be held for them. The waiting list is now temporarily frozen until the 17/18 intake is completed.
