Night-time adventures in Sevenoaks Weald

Eight groups of scouts went out exploring on Friday evening, with a night navigation hike from locations across the district to Sevenoaks Weald.

Walking parties from 10th Sevenoaks (Weald), 9th Sevenoaks (Seal) and both Chapman and Swift troops from the 4th set out from locations stretching from Westerham to Shipbourne and navigated their way to the scout hut in Sevenoaks Weald.

Monopoly Run 2023

Today was Monopoly Run “Live”, an event where 8000 players from Scouting and Guiding play a real time game of Monopoly across London.

This year 62 of us from Swift, Chapman and Seal Scout Troops, formed eight teams and ventured into central London to take part.

Eight hours and 38 kms of walking / tube rides / bus journeys, most of our teams had managed to visit every place on the standard Monopoly board.

Seven of our teams ended up in the same game – with the ‘Brave’ team (Nick, Robin, Holly. Caitlin, Clemmie, Lexie and Christopher) taking the crown. The one team out there competing with the public ‘The Influencers’ managed to come second in their game.

This term, we have been…

The Scout Troops haven’t done a particularly good job taking photos of activities this term, however we have been busy scouting!

Games night

The scouts brought in their favourite board games

Zoom Cook-along

Chapman and Swift cooked a chicken chow mien and Sweet and Sour Crispy Chicken care of a Kitchen Sanctuary recipe

New scouts sleepover

A night hike, a visit to the chip shop and sleepover for some of the newer Chapman scouts.

Screen Stars

The scouts spent an evening filming and editing short videos promotional videos. While the scouts had fun, unfortunately none of the videos were fit for public viewing 🤦🥹

Trading Game

The scout’s favourite game where patrols compete to earn the most scout-bucks by showing off their scouting skills.


We had our most successful evening cooking pancakes over scout-made open fires in recent memory. Every patrol lit a reasonable fire and pretty much everyone managed to make an edible pancake.

Coming up

Coming us soon are the Monopoly Run in London, a night-time navigation and sleepover.

Merry Christmas
