Hi Leaders and Supporters,

The big change over in ntemails happened last weekend so if your ntemail stopped working you need to contact neil.duncalf@ntscouts.org.uk our SASIT to get a new password. Those not on ntemails will still get scout information from me if relevant to your role.

Shop news, as usual not much happening as the corner bricks made for the front door wall are not the correct angle so re-build stopped again.

Community Champions news. Lantern making sessions for the Tameside Christmas Lantern Parade on 18/11/23 through Ashton. Sessions are on various dates for our young people in Scouts. See https://www.intameside.co.uk/whats-on/lantern-making-sessions-as-part-of-ashton-s-winter-carnival-parade Take your kids along to make the lanterns.
