Today we welcome the Squirrels section to our Scouting family.
We are very proud to announce that we have one of 9 Squirrel Dreys in Kent and 200 in the UK starting on the 15th September.
We need more volunteers across our District to be able to offer this section in other groups as well as offer more places to all young people that want to Scout.
We have many roles to fill, many tasks that are vital for Scouting to taking place from taking notes at meetings to cutting the grass at one of our sites as well as helping at meetings.
Interested in joining in the fun, get in touch!
We are holding our firework display again this year on Friday 8th November.
Tickets can be ordered from TicketSource
We have now officially opened our crate stacking activity at the bottom of the site!
Look out for opportunities to try it out on weekend activity days or holiday activity days. 👍
If you are a scout group that would like to use these for your own purposes – change the final url etc, be my guest. They were created from a PowerPoint presentation, exported as a video and then turned into a gif from there. Link to the presentations
Today, UK Scouting has changed our brand from the old swoosh to a simpler, bolder symbol for scouting.
It signifies a new direction for Scouts as it launches Skills For Life. Watch the whole video for a great introduction, but the super short version is emphasising the huge positive effect scouting has on the lives of young people – not just today, but forward into the rest of their lives.

Proud to be preparing young people in Scouts with #SkillsForLife
The new brand is just the latest in an evolution of the brand over the years.
Don’t forget to claim your 10% discount for looking after a beaver / cub / scout / exlporer.
You need to take a scout neckerchief with you to claim the discount and you will need to purchase a discount card if you don’t have one already. Our nearest go-outdoors is now in Tonbridge.
The scouts held their Scouting Winter Olympics last night.
– Biathlon (more of a jog followed by a high speed bit of air rifle shooting)
– Ice hockey (we finally made use of the indoor hockey set we got from Activekids )
– Toboggan (put it this way, the pushing phase went on for 99% of the time)
– Curling – with scout sized curling stones … 🙂
