AS always our AGM meetings are well attended. We had one new member and three potential new members.

That’s a good

start to our new Flower Club year. We began the evening by presenting a cheque to Pam Bell. Thanking her for her 1st Aid cover over the last year. Luckily she had never been needed but had provided a useful cover should anything have happened. Next, we were introduced to Bev from “Over The rainbow Children’s Charity”. Prior to setting up this charity Bev had started numerous other charity’s including Blood Runners and Community 1st Responders before deciding she wanted to support children and their families

Framlingham Scouts Needs You

I’M sure many people that will read this have fond memories of their own Scouting days which will have begun either as a Cub (if you’re a bit older!) or a Beaver (if you joined in more recent years). Scouting continues to be very successful

running. On October 4th this year it will be four years old and will have helped support 25 children.

The charity has

currently pledged £10,000 to a brain damaged five year old girl. There are many events planned to raise this enormous sum of money.

As this was our chairman

June’s chosen charity for 2019 we were delighted for Elsie our president to be able to present

a cheque donation of £700 to Bev, to go towards this little girls care. This was raised at our recent Fashion Show which was a great success. The ladies at “Inspirations” in Wickham Market worked very hard as did all the flower club committee to put on this event. We were well supported with attendance of over 100 people.

After a break for delicious refreshments we continued with the AGM part of the meeting. It was proposed that the Subscription be raised by one pound to £27 a year. An astonishing cheap night out once you realise that for every £27 we are obliged to give £8.55 to NAFFAS. This was carried unanimously, as was the proposal to start our meetings at 7pm rather than 7.30pm. It was also proposed that Elsie remains as our President and June remains as our Chairman. As there was no other proposals for these positions, again it was agreed by all in attendance. All officers and remaining committee members were voted en bloc as were the working party. Geraldine presented her audited accounts which were accepted as a true account of our financial situation.

THE national care watchdog has given Mills Meadow care home its seal of approval, with relatives and residents praising the caring and attentive team members.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) gave the Care UK care home, on Fore Street, an overall ‘Outstanding’ rating, following an unannounced inspection. The care home was rated as ‘Outstanding’ in the caring and being responsive category, with inspectors on the day praising the

exceptionally caring

compassionate interactions between the team and residents. The report

numerous areas of the home’s impressive service, and noted

that residents were

‘exceptionally happy’ with the care they received from the team at Mills Meadow. One resident commented, “I am pretty lucky to live here. I want for nothing, the food is delicious, the care is first-rate, the team understands

me and knows

what I need sometimes before I know myself. Nothing is too much trouble. I consider myself blessed to live here.”

CQC inspectors also noted the commitment of team members who consistently went ‘above and beyond’ and treated residents ‘like members of their own family’, even bringing their young children and other relatives along to visit residents. One resident told inspectors, “A while back I was talking to a member of the team about my favourite film and why I like it so much. They were in town shopping and saw a book about (leading actor). They got it for me and brought it in that afternoon, even though they were not working. That was a lovely thing to do; felt very special.”

The report also highlighted

the focus on ensuring residents remain as independent as possible and are supported to lead fulfilling lives. The home’s ‘wishing on a star’


encouraged conversations about what different residents wanted to do, and had inspired ballet, art gallery and theatre trips. A popular weekly activity included trips into the community on the Hour

Community Trishaws pulled by volunteers. One resident described the sense of freedom this gave them having the ‘wind in their hair as they went around town’. The home also welcomed the local community regularly, hosting events such as Macmillan Coffee Morning, and taking part in Care Home Open Day.

and highlighted

Phillip Steyn, regional director for Care UK, said: “The team has worked extremely hard to ensure Mills Meadow is a home-from-home to all residents and their families, and everyone at Mills Meadow is really proud of their achievements.

“Receiving an ‘Outstanding’ rating shows just how dedicated the team is to looking after everyone’s individual needs, and we will continue our hard work to ensure residents receive the highest quality care and live fulfilling lives. I am incredibly proud that Mills Meadow has been rated ‘Outstanding’, and would like to say thank you to the team for all of their hard work, which I know is also greatly appreciated by residents and their families.” To assess service standards at Mills Meadow the CQC’s inspector spoke

with team

members, residents, and their visiting relatives on the day of the inspection. They also reviewed the records and procedures already in place at the care home.

Mills Meadow is a modern care home which provides full- time residential care. Designed to enable residents to live enjoyable and fulfilling lives, the care home has different areas to socialise with family and friends as well as quiet spaces to let residents have time alone without being in their bedrooms. Mills Meadow also runs a day club, which offers older people living independently in the community the chance to make new friends and take part


enjoyable activities. To find out more about Mills Meadow, call customer relations manager, Chantal Sencier, on 0330 127 8375 or email chantal.

and this is primarily down to our amazing Leaders that volunteer their spare time to bring a fantastic programme of fun and learning for the development of the young boys and girls of Framlingham and surrounding area. It’s extremely rewarding to see the achievements and careers that our ex-Scouts have gone on to have and we’re always a little bit proud to think that we may have influenced them. Scouting continues to reinvent and update whilst sticking to the same basic principles set out by Baden Powell and has a new outlook with the hashtag #skillsforlife. You can search for this on youtube to see some very inspirational videos. This last weekend over 20 of our Cubs enjoyed a night hike around the local area which ended with a camp fire and sleepover at our Badingham road headquarters. There were some very tired boys, girls and leaders by the time they all went home buzzing from the experience.

Framlingham is growing with many new houses being developed bringing lots of new boys and girls to the town who would like

to be

part of the Scouting family, but sadly our waiting lists are

full and without new adult volunteers coming forward to become leaders, at best we can only continue with reduced numbers and at worst, we may have to consider closing a section. Most at risk is our Cub pack as our Leader (Akele) of 10 years is stepping down at Christmas now that her own children have passed right through the movement. We are desperately looking for an enthusiastic person to take this role on and we also need some assistant leaders to help our Beaver Colony Leader too. No particular experience is needed and you will receive lots of training which is recognised by external including


organisations Institute


Leadership Management (ILM) which looks great on your CV. You’re never alone in Scouting and can always call on additional support from the other Leaders across the Section, Group and District, our Group Scout Leader, local Training

Advisor and our

Group Executive Committee (who are there to ensure you have

all need).
