News and Regular Activities

SUNDAY BREAKFAST

One of the biggest events in the parish weekly calendar has been running for over 30 years. It started with tea & coffee in the old wooden hut and progressed to biscuits before moving to the new Parish Centre in 1992 when toast was introduced. Today we also include juice for the kids, croissants, teacakes, crumpets, muffins and pancakes. On special occasions we add rum to the coffee; birthday cakes, bacon, beans and sausages could also be on the menu. We regularly have over 60 hungry souls immediately after the 8.30 Mass. Everyone is very welcome (young and the notso young). If you are new to the parish or have never been before please come along.

As you can see from the lists below the Parish Centre is a very well used facility embracing all age groups, from babies to the veterans in the snooker team. With the exception of a cleaner it is run by volunteers (some photos above).

The Scout Organisation is now an equal opportunities organisation open to all. Our group now has a number of girls in the scout section but is actively recruiting both boys and girls for all sections:

Beavers 5&3/4 to 8; Cubs 8-11; Scouts 11+

All our sections are currently (2011) looking for volunteer leaders - a very rewarding way of spending a couple of hours a week and without whom your children would have no group to attend.
The parish now has a geocache hidden within it. What is it and how do I find it? Please see the poster in the porch or log on to www.geocacheing.com to find out!

The Scouts now have their own lively website which you can link to from here.
Do pay them a visit - you'll enjoy it. Scouts, Cubs and Beavers are all catered for and they welcome news, views and contributions.
It's an independent site - you can use your back arrow to return here.

December 2011 - Thank you to Mark Woodhouse - he has served the 8th Fulwood Scout Group for 25 years and been Group Scout Leader for the past 13 years. He will continue as one of the Scout Troop Leaders, but at New Year will hand over as overall Leader to Ian Mulholland.
God bless them both.
