We Have Facebook!

Posted on March 29th, 2015 by James Traynor

5th St Ives has two new Facebook Groups.

The first is called 5th St Ives Scout Group. This is for Parents and Leaders of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, to see what’s going on in the group, to post questions and to see pictures. If you are a Parent or a Leader, feel free to join this group.

The second is called 5th St Ives Beavers. This is for Parents and Leaders of our Beaver Scouts only to keep up to date with what’s going on in the colony and to communicate with the Leadership team, as well as see pictures etc.

Also, don’t forget that we are on twitter, @5thstives and there is information on our website. However email is still the primary method Leaders will use to get information to parents.

Hope you all enjoy.
