The balance of €100 for Manannán’s upcoming hostelling trip to Wales is due at the meeting next Friday, 14 October. The final deadline to pay this balance is Friday 28 October.
Please note that we will have no meeting on Friday 21 October.
For any Scout who requested Scouting Ireland Travel Insurance, this costs an additional €10.60 on top of the balance. We arrange this through National Office, and no further action is required by Scouts for this.
A Medical and Consent Form required by the activity operators, Anglesey Outdoors, has been sent out to parents. We ask that this be filled out and returned with the balance.
