Autumn 2004

Whilst enjoying the Indian summer, the Christmas party seems a long way off, but please put the dates of this term's events in your diary. As ever, we have tried to include a range of activities and hope you find something to inspire you and encourage you to come along. As with any charitable organization, our activities are determined by the limited funds available. We rely heavily on volunteers who have run a vast range of sessions for us. If you feel able to help run a session, or know someone else who could, please let us know. Alternatively if you work for a company who supports local charities would they consider supporting NAGC Kingston Explorers?

There has been some debate as to the value of outings, so our trip to the Horniman Museum is an additional event this term. Some people say that you can visit a museum any time and do so regularly, whereas others just think about visiting and only get round to it if someone else has organized it! Whichever group you fall into we hope to see some of you there.

A reminder that the NAGC Family Day and AGM takes place on Saturday 9th October at Walton High School, Milton Keynes. We would love to hear a report of the day from anyone who attends.

May we take this opportunity to remind you that Kingston Explorers Club is run by volunteer parents. Similarly the majority of session leaders and guest speakers do not have formal training or qualifications in managing groups of children. In the interests of everyone's safety and enjoyment (including that of the speakers!), parents must remain with their children and be fully responsible for their behaviour at all times.

Please use the website and EMail any comments concerning the club. In the last newsletter we asked if people were interested in EMail reminders or only receiving the newsletter by EMail. Since there was an astonishing response of only one person(!), we have decided not to bother with this!

Hope to see you at lots of events this term!

On behalf of the committee,
