Hi all

Dave Bannister (Skip) from 85th Milton Scout Group will be laid to rest on Saturday 9th at 10:30.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this very difficult time.
I know many of you would in normal circumstances wish to attend, sadly this cannot happen due to current restrictions.

Skip’s family have kindly allowed me to share the link below so members of the district unable to attend can watch online and pay your private respects.
There is a very small contingent from Milton, District and County who are attending the funeral at the request of the family. We will fly our flags high and we know it will be greatly appreciated.

Rest in Peace, Gone Home, Dave Bannister (Skip)

I recommend you try to login before Saturday to ensure that it is all working fine. You will know it is working as you will be met by a looping image of a waterfall.
Should anyone miss the service it will be uploaded back on the Obitus website with the same log in details at some point next week, and will stay there for 28 days.

Yours in scouting

District Commissioner

As we now have confirmation that Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are going into Tier 4...

For Scouting in Staffordshire the COVID level is now RED

This means no face-to-face scouting may take place, but online sessions are of course still allowed.

Stay Safe Everyone

Yours in Scouting

It’s is with great sadness to announce that Dave Bannister (Skip) passed away this week.

Dave was a great scouter and I have passed on my condolences from the District.

On a personal note, Dave was a great friend and taught many leaders at Milton everything they needed to know about scouting.
He was a true champion of our district who was awarded with his 60 years of service award last Christmas.

We will miss you Dave. Rest in peace

I will keep you up to date with any funeral arrangements.

Many thanks for taking to the time come and talk to us Jonathan Gullis MP🗣 Q&A WITH LOCAL EXPLORERS 🗣

Big thank you to Sara from Potteries North Scout District who arranged a Q&A this week with local explorers from across North Staffordshire.

Some brilliant questions that would give Paxman a run for his money and delighted to discuss about the potential opportunities to work together on local projects in the future.
