  |   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!

1st Southgate has returned!

  |   By  |  0 Comments

Since the Easter school holidays, all three of our sections have now returned to face to face scouting. We have seen nearly everyone again and its been great to see everyone full size, instead of a small box on a screen! We all really hope you have enjoyed the first few activities back, including the Scouts who spent their first evening lighting fires! A huge amount of work has gone into making the return safe and fun, the Leaders have been brilliant. Parents, thank you for all you have done to stick with us during the last 12 months. Let’s hope this is the start of the new normal for us all to enjoy.

Over the past months, despite everything going on in the world, scouting at 1st Southgate has continued to thrive. Cooking, baking, forensic science, karate and visits from bats and chickens are just some of the activities that our members have taken part in. There has also been lots of badge work and use of activity packs hand delivered by our leaders. The group has even gained new members during this time with our first ever online investitures! (See below)

We all want to say a massive well done to everyone for getting involved, trying to make the best of this situation and a huge thank you to everyone who has made it possible!
