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.

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!

Last weekend marked the end of Karen’s (Rama’s) final beaver sleepover. All of the Beavers had a great time and the closing ceremony allowed the whole group the opportunity to say thank you to Karen for all of her hard work over the last 30 years. Karen really has given everything to 1st Southgate and influenced the lives of so many young people. In her own words:

I just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You to everyone for making my last Beaver Sleepover a memorable one. For the last 30 years I have had the privilege of being part of an amazing team but the time has come to hang up my scarf & woggle & pass the job on.
Wishing you all the best Tracy in your new role. Good luck to all the current Beavers, I hope you continue to have a fabulous Scouting journey.🎉⚜️🎉

Congratulations Isaac
