Old Leigh Regatta

Scouts man the stalls at 2015’s Leigh Regatta

The Leigh Regatta in Leigh-on-Sea is an annual community & charity event organised by the Sea Scout/Explorer Groups based in the Old Town along with the Leigh Lions. Each year, the event raises money for nominated charities as well as for the local Scout Groups around Leigh-on-Sea.

The Old Leigh High Street will close for the whole day, allowing the Leigh Regatta to take full advantage of the space for all the entertainment, craft stalls, side shows, competitions and water events, including sailing run by EYC & LSC, the Scout Pentathlon, Cub Welly Hoying, live music, fun stalls and entertainers.

All Scouts & Explorers are asked to help on stalls, raise money and set up/pack up on the day. We also need support from parents and families on stalls and in the tea tent, and donations of prizes for our stalls which raise funds for 3rdCB. This is our biggest fund raising event of the year, if you can help out please talk to any of the leaders.

We’re after donations of cakes, teddies, jumble and old crockery, so if you like backing or are having a post-summer clear out, please drop them into The Den before the Regatta.

We’re also after adult help in the tea tent and on the Scout stalls on the day. If you have an hour or two free and are able to help out please drop us an email at TheDen@3rdCB.org.uk with when you’re about to we can put a rota together, or just pop down on the day and talk to one of the leaders.

Group AGM
Sep 13 @ 20:15 – 21:00

Our Annual General Meeting held at The Den at 8.15pm, this is an important meeting where Leaders, members and parents agree on the Group reports, accounts and also where the Group Executive Committee members, who manage the Group and it’s finances are elected.

The Executive Committee is an important part of the Group and is formed of Section Leaders and elected members such as Chairman, Treasurer and Parent Reps who don’t hold scouting roles within the Group and deal with the business side (accounts, legal, etc) of 3rd CB. Thus saving the Leader Team from more work and enables them to focus on your Child’s Scouting and the activities that are run.

In recent years we have typically only received a small handful of parents who attend this important meeting and we currently have 200+ children within the Group. The AGM will only last half an hour and so hopefully will not erode into your evening too much – indeed, if the sun shines, an amble through the Old Town or along the beach is a beautiful way to spend an evening before or after attending a worthy cause.

We hope you can attend this event and very much look forward to seeing you on the night.

Bag Packing (Fundraising)
Sep 16 @ 10:00 – 16:00

The Group will be taking part in a fundraising event at Morrison’s in Hadleigh, assisting shoppers in packing their shopping bags for a small donation to the Group.

In previous years we have raised several thousand pounds doing this; a significant amount of money that helps sustain our activities and equipment, and keeping subs at a reasonable level.

We will be there between 10 and 4 on Saturday, and 11 and 3 on Sunday. With around 170 Cubs, Scouts and Explorers (not including the Leaders) we hope that everyone can attend for an hour or two so that we can have two people on each checkout.

Please come in uniform. The more people that come to help the more money we can raise for activities and equipment.

Please note there will be no food/drink supplied by the Group or Morrisons, and you will need to dropped off and collected from the store. There will be at least two leaders from various sections present throughout to supervise and to ensure that no inconvenience is caused to Morrison’s or their customers.

If you have any friends or family in the area that need some shopping please get them to pop in and see us.
