eXu Explorers

eXu is a District Explorer Scout Unit partnered with the 20th Sheffield Scout Group. We are open to anyone in the area aged between 14 and 18. Our programme covers a wide variety of activities and skills which allows our members to work towards their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and Queens Scout Award as well as many social events and chances to do something different. For further information have a look through the web pages which include photos of recent events and our forthcoming programme or email exu@20th.org.uk

2017-18 DofE programme

Following our successful launch event in September, twenty-one of our Explorer Scouts have begun their journey towards achieving their DofE Award with us this year, 6 Gold and 15 Silver 😀.

eXu 24 Hour Pantomime

On the 24th February, the Explorers are performing a pantomime at the Parish Hall at 7pm (doors open 6:30pm). The slight twist is that they only get the script at 7pm just 24 hours beforehand. So they have that period to arrange the cast, learn the script, make costumes and build scenery. There won’t be much sleeping going on!

We know how busy everyone is so this is your advanced warning to book in the performance so you can come and support us and be a super audience.

Any assistance at all with costumes and set building from 9am on the 24th would be great, we’re hoping to ride off the waves of volunteer success from the Gang Show! Any help will be coordinated through our Active Support Unit headed by Neil Benson.
