Group Leader - Parents - 5 months ago (07 Jun 16)

An open letter to Magill Scout Group

Chairperson - Parents - 5 months ago (03 Jun 16)

Dear Parents and Guardians of Magill Scout Group,

Further to the recent loss of our long serving Group Leader (GL), Marco Hess, we are not only searching for a replacement GL but we also need volunteers to become adult helpers and assistant leaders in all sections of the Group – Joeys, Cubs and Scouts.

The Group also needs some new faces with fresh ideas to help run the Parents Committee in various roles, including fund-raising to help with running costs, facilities upgrades and external activities associated with the Group.

Many of the current leaders and committee members have been in their roles for a long time. Some have been doing these jobs for years after their own children have finished with Scouts altogether. These leaders and committee members would relish the chance to take a step back while coaching and encouraging someone new to take over in the mid to long term.

If you are reading this and are at all concerned about the on-going viability of the Group to continue providing great activities and opportunities for your children then please consider coming onboard in some capacity to help out. Scout Groups such as Magill simply cannot exist without the help of dedicated volunteers.

The AGM on Tuesday 7th Junewould be a great time to offer your help, or simply contact our acting GL, Kay Ealing at home on 8251 3250, mobile 0411 111 91, or by email at

AGM and Farewell to Marco

Chairperson - Joeys - 6 months ago (10 May 16)

Information for families about Marco Hess Group Leader

Dear Families of Magill Scout Group,

Marco has decided for family reasons to take leave from Magill Scout Group,however Marco will not be returning and at the Annual General Meeting and Pancake night on Tuesday 7th June, everyone will have the opportunity to say Goodbye to Marco and thank him for all his fabulous work he has given to Magill over the years. Marco will remain quietly in the background looking after the Magill website so we have not lost him entirely.

No replacement has been found for Marco and I have had to take on the role as Acting Group Leader, until such time as we can replace Marco. As I already am the District Commissioner for the Adelaide Foothills District I cannot give this role the attention it deserves, therefore it is imperative someone takes the role as I cannot continue to keep doing the GL role in the long term. I am happy to talk with anyone who would like to know more about this position.

Information about the AGM will be coming out shortly; it will be shared night for Joeys, Cubs and Scouts, who are going to cook pancakes for everyone. We will be looking for new committee members to keep Magill alive and growing.“No Committee therefore no Group.” I will contacting some parents personally who may have the skills to be on this group of supportive parents and I urge you to think about how you may be able to help.

I have included my contact details if any parent would like to talk with me, please try my home number first, it does take messages.

Looking forward to meeting lots of parents on the evening of the AGM.

Yours in Scouting
Kay Ealing
