I stood in front of you at our Annual General Meeting to explain we had double the number of Scouts, 1 less leader and some of our remaining leaders had additional work / career commitments.
I also emailed you all in October to say we were in desperate need of new Leaders and unless found we'd be forced to close on the 3rd of December.
Sadly, that's become a reality; we don't have enough Leaders and will be closed on Monday the 3rd of December and any other Troop night where I feel there's not enough Leaders to guarantee the safety of Scouts and Leaders alike.
We still desperately need additional Leaders so we're not in this tight spot again and we're able to remain open each and every troop night. We'd really appreciate your helping us to achieve this.
