Saturday 11th June – Queens Birthday Tea Party

queen-90th-birthday-badgeThe Scouts & Explorers will be helping serve tea to members of the community as part of the Queens 90th birthday celebrations. We also need to provide some of the cakes for the event – let’s get baking!

All sections are asked to make some cakes and deliver to the Scout room from 1.30 – 2.30 on Saturday 11th June.  We are looking for traditional cakes rather than buns and cup cakes.

Scouts & Explorers can sign up to help on this event (which counts towards your World Challenge badge) on My.Scout so that we know how many people are coming to help.  It’s free and there will be loads of cakes to eat at the end!

Help required from 1.30pm – 5pm.  We are only asking the Scouts and Explorers to help serve the tea during this time. You can some for all or part of the time. Initial meet is at the Scout room, then from 2.30 at the Vicarage.

Parents are welcome to come to the tea party and to bring family and friends which will be held in the vicarage garden.

answerthat! Saturday 23rd April

answerthat! is a quiz night with a difference.

Another great night of fun at the Parish Hall with over 100 parents and friends enjoying rounds such as Have I got news for you, Countdown and Question of Sport.  A big thank you to all who came and also to EXU, the exec committee and Leaders who organised the event raising funds for camping equipment and hopefully some new Kayaks for the summer.

Lads & Dads Camp 25-27th September


Another weekend packed with fun, challenge and adventure held on the Chatsworth estate.  The lads and dads took part in a cycling challenge, a rugby challenge, non stop cricket, built ballistas, built a large camp fire, air rifle shooting, peg and wine bottle challenges and so much more.

The highlight for many on Saturday night was watching the England Wales Rugby match on a large screen sat around the camp fire!

The competition was a tie for first place which went down to the very last activity – Horse Shoe Hoopla! Congratulations to the Chennerys and the Houltons crowned champion lad and dad 2015.

And a big thank you to all the leaders who made the weekend possible – and the the family of Fred May (Former Group Chairman) whose legacy was spent on a new gate into the field.

Alpaca Farm Visit


We had a fantastic evening at Mayfield Valley Alpaca Farm last week. While the boys were able to feed many of the animals and hold a skunk the highlight of the evening was the extremely large pig going to the toilet in front of the boys…typical!
