  |   By  |  0 Comments

Crawley District Scouts celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee yesterday at Stanford. Such an amazing day. The time and effort put into this was paid back ten fold by the young people safely having so much fun. The whole of 1st Southgate and SRF are very proud to have been part of making so many great memories.

Thank you to everyone who joined 1st Southgate and SRF at Stanfords Campsite last weekend to renew our Scout Promises around the fire. Members and families enjoyed use of the whole site, playing games and having a picnic in the sun.

Thank you for coming!

Thank you to everyone that came to our annual Winter Event at Stanfords, we had games, food, fire and fireworks. We really hope that everyone had a great time because we certainly did! These events are a massive team effort so thank you to everyone that made it possible.

A special mention to those leaders who were presented with training and long service awards by our District Commissioner, you are what make Scouting great! Furthermore, an even bigger well done to Kerry Waudby for her merit award, it was very well deserved!

Yesterday, Monday 29th March 2021, SRF Explorers finally returned after months of virtual meetings. With the easing of UK lockdown, scouting guidance allows us to meet outside only, in a socially distanced fashion. To mark the occasion SRF had a chilled out campfire where everyone was able to catch up and enjoy being in the company of others! Everyone was excited to be back and we gathered ideas for what the Explorers want to do over the coming months.
