Hi everyone, 

I hope you all managed to see the Gang Show.  What an inspiring start to the new year!

There are a couple of upcoming fundraisers within the District.  Please support one or more of them if you can.

There is also information below in relation to the upcoming annual District Training Day.  Please make every effort to attend and progress with your Personal Learning Plan.  This is a great way to complete training locally, while meeting fellow leaders from the District.

HESU Quiz Night with Godfrey's Supper - Friday 2nd February

The HESU Parent Support Group (PSG) is organising a fund raising Quiz.
It promises to be a really fun and relaxed evening and you don’t need to be a mastermind to take part!

Come and support HESU and either bring your friends, family or fellow leaders and form a team 6-10 or if you want, we can build a team around you!


Date:       FRIDAY 2ND FEBRUARY    Time: 7.30pm for 8pm 

Venue:    HESU and 10th Harpenden HQ, Crabtree Fields, Waldegrave Park.

Price:       £10 including Godfreys’ supper (fish, meat and vegetarian options will be available). There will be a cash bar to buy drinks.

We would love you to support the evening and the Unit, by putting a leaders or group team together.

Many Thanks from the HESU PSG
