Photos tonight

Dear Parents

Wicklow Mountain Rescue have suggested that they may request a photographer to come down and take pictures for the Wicklow times.  If anyone objects to their Cub being in a picture that could end up in the paper, can you please let one of the Leaders know.

Congratulations to all on their promotions.

Each Six has a page on the website and it is up to them to fill it.
This month the Sixers will be the Six Blogger and will give Rory what they want posted to their page. Next month it will be the turn of the Seconders and so on.

The Leaders won’t be posting to the pages (with the exception of Rory)
