Lads and Dads Camp : A fantastic weekend for the 15 pairs of Lads and Dads, blessed with some great weather on the Chatsworth estate. We made portable stoves, went caving, drank nettle tea and made mento and coke rockets. Topped off with camp fires and lots of food the camp was great fun and adventure for all. The winners this year were James and Mike Rodgers. If you have more photo’s – please email them so we can share on the website. Big thanks to the EXU members who came and helped cook.
Over 100 members of the Group and their families turned out to see Andrew carry the Olympic Torch in Sheffield, cheering and waving flags. Thank you so much – it was simply and amazing experience. We have Photo’s in the gallery and see the video below of our Scout Group. (more…)
The Scout Group is setting up shop in town for two weeks to recruit both new members and adult volunteers to the Scout Association. From this Saturday 10th September, we are taking over one of the shops on Pinstone street currently closed for the Sevenstone redevelopment.
The shop is kitted out to show the types of activities that Scouts do such as climbing, abseiling, surfing and kayaking. Information will be available on how to join in with the Scouting fun. There is also a bouldering wall in the shop for anybody to pop in and have a go plus videos of activities and a message from the Chief Scout, Bear Grylls.

Thank you to all the Scouts, Explorers and Leaders who helped with the bag packing at Waitrose to raise over £1000 for McMillan. Much needed money was raised for the charity and also helped the Group in its centenary year activity of community volunteering. We have been complimented by both McMillan and Waitrose on how helpful and well behaved all our young people were – so well done to you all.
A centenary reunion dinner is planned for October 2011 – please get in touch. If you can mail us a list of everyone you remember that would be a great help -dont worry if you dont have contact details, names are just as important to us at this stage
