Many thanks to everyone who contributed to a successful AGM this week and especially to our young people, the Beavers sang their hearts out in front of their biggest audience, the Cubs shared how they earned a very important badge and the Scouts showed creative skills, teamwork and IT skills making their own video.

Well Done Chris/Chil!

At the Crawley District AGM last week, Chris/Chil received the Barry Jones Memorial trophy.

This trophy was awarded for the first time this year, in memory of Barry Jones who passed away last year, for an individual’s contribution to scouting.

Chris constantly gives so much to the district, and to the group. This award was given for the work she did across the district while we didn’t have a DC, and the growth work she has/and continues to help with – well done Chris/Chil, very well deserved!

Visit to Gravetye Estate

A wonderful, warm afternoon was had at the Gravetye Estate today. A group of Beavers & Cubs got to learn new skills using a variety of hand tools to do some coppicing. The wood will then be used to make a dead hedge. They were all extremely well behaved & were excellent at working in teams & sharing.

Group Camp 2023

  |   By  |  0 Comments

What a weekend!

We had 41 young people join us for our group camp this year! The whole camp had an amazing atmosphere!

This weekend wouldn’t have been possible without the support from the amazing leaders we had with us. Every leader got stuck in and helped where they could. So on behalf of all the young people, and myself, I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to them.

They tried Archery, Angel throwing, Air Rifle shooting, played lots of games and did a lot of being loud and running around!

We really hope that all the young people enjoyed their time with us this weekend, here are some photos below from the weekend!

Stanford 60th Celebration

   |   By  |  0 Comments

This weekend we celebrated 60 years of Stanford Scout Camp Site with a day for our Adult Volunteers and their families – an opportunity to say thank you for all of their hard work. The day was full of activities, fun, food and a tug of war (which 1st Southgate/SRF won!). As the light faded, we gathered around the campfire for some presentations. The evening then continued with Adam Jasko leading the campfire before we finished the day with a quiz.

Congratulations Darren
