Good Morning Parents/Members and Supporters,

On behalf of the Group Chairman and the Group Executive Committee I have the pleasure of circulating the Annual Accounts and Annual Reports for the 11th Spen Valley Scout Group for 2020/2021.

This years report is available below

As you are all aware 2020 is the year Face to Face Scouting stopped and we moved onto Zoom due to the Covid-19 pandemic so our annual accounts do reflect the change in income levels for the year, but due to reserves held by the group your will see the group is in a very healthy financial situation.

Please do have a read of the section reports and the overall accounts and come back to myself with any questions.

The previous few years reports are also available here on our website should you wish to look at those.

As always this is YOUR group, so if any parents are interested in getting more involved then please contact me for more information. Having parent representation at the group executive is something I would like to achieve as it is nice to get parents input on shaping the group for the future.

We are also hoping (depending on Covid-19 restrictions) to have a Family All sections meeting at Fanwood on Friday 9th July in leu of the usual section meetings, but more info will be circulated once we know if this can go ahead or not.

As always, a big thank to everyone involved at the group, and you to you guys for supporting us through what has been a very strange 16 months at the 11th, fingers crossed the next 12 months will see things like camping/overnight experiences returning and social distancing becoming a thing of the past!

Kind Regards

Michael Holroyd | Group Scout Leader
