Don’t take them to school, give them to us!


This year’s “Active Kids” scheme starts on 29th January 14 and runs until 20th May 2014.

Please collect the vouchers and post them in the collecting box at the Scout Hut. The leaders are currently browsing the catalogue and compiling their “wish list”.

Thanks to your generosity, we received two big bags of sports equipment, which everyone in the group uses.


We Need You!

We Need You (Wide 2)

The group needs your help to keep it running.

In particular we are looking for

  • adult help with Beavers and Cubs – every now and again or regularly
  • someone to look after hall bookings
  • someone to organise some fund raising for a big project.
  • a handyman (or handywoman) to take care of some minor repairs
  • someone to run a second hand uniform shop

If you think you could help please talk to any of the unit leaders or use the Volunteer link on the front page of the website.

Merry Christmas!

Can we wish everyone involved in Scouting at the 4th

A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Without the time and efforts of the young people, parents and adult volunteers Scouting would not happen,

so thank you for joining in.

Here’s to a great 2014

“The Minecrafters” win the quiz [updated]

The group held its first quiz night on Saturday with twelve teams competing for glory. In the end four teams finished within a few points of the lead, with “the Minecrafters” narrowly taking the victory.  The winning score was an impressive 49.5 out of 65.


Update 1 (2013-07-01):

Some of the scouts made cakes for the quiz – Matthew’s “Scout cakes” were particularly impressive.
