Family Camp 2019 – What a Scorcher!!

Over 70 of us enjoyed a great weekend of fun in the sun at Tolmers Scout Activity Centre. I hope that everyone is now well rested!

Families took part in High Ropes, RopeaPhobia, Archery, Giant Slide, Giant Inflatable Assault Course, Aeroball, The Rock, Orienteering and Photo Quiz together with our own Scout Skills, Rounders and Campfire.

We will be advertising the date and plans for next year’s event very soon – so keep checking the website for the information

Some photos have arrived through and I’m hopeful that you will all send through those you took over the course of the weekend’s fun and games…

Scouts enjoy great weather at Patrol Camp

Well done to all the scouts that came to Patrol Camp last weekend at Polyapes. All hot meals cooked on open fires, plenty of collecting, chopping and sorting wood for their fires, lots of wide games and a 5 mile hike, all squeezed into less than 48 hours – see more pictures in the gallery.

Another successful Jumble

Many thanks to everyone that helped make the Jumble a great success – all the money raised is used to maintain and improve our HQ – keep the 12th October free in your calendar for the next one…..

Remember, helping out at the Jumble is just one small way you can get involved – we need lots of adult help at Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to keep providing high quality scouting at 3rd Hampton. Speak to any of the leaders as to how you can become a leader or assistant.

Make 2019 the year you take the opportunity to make a difference

Happy New Year – time to get involved….

Here’s to another fantastic year of scouting at 3rd Hampton. Keep checking here for information about events going on within all the sections.

Let’s see if in 2019 we can get you all a little more involved in the group? If we don’t get new uniformed Beaver and Cub Leaders this year then there will not be a Beaver or Cub section to be a part of!!

Both Akela and Bagheera are retiring this year after many, many years of excellent service to the group – let’s not let all their hard work go to waste.

We need people to step up and agree to become leaders ASAP – so that they can be mentored by the existing leaders – we would rather have a smooth transition than a “big bang” – or even worse – closure of the sections!

As the saying goes, many hands make light work, the more uniformed leaders we have the more the load can be spread. Don’t worry if you can’t commit to every week – if we get a few then you could each do a couple of meetings a month – also, don’t worry re prior experience as full training is provided.

Don’t waste your New Year’s resolutions on the usual suspects  – get involved in the adventure that is Scouting…. we need your helpwe_need_you_with_bear

Great turnout for Remembrance Day

Remembrance Sunday Parade

All, as we do every year the group will be taking part in this event to remember the sacrifices made, by so many, in order that we can live as freely as we do now.

A letter outlining the arrangements has been sent out to all members and is also contained within the news section of the website.

We will also be having our annual group photo – so please make sure that you are there and looking smart.

Jumble News

Many thanks to everyone that helped make the Jumble a great success – all the money raised is used to maintain and improve our HQ – just check out the new heaters, blinds and cupboards.

Unfortunately, revenues were significantly down this time on previous events – although we had plenty of help on the day itself we still need more help in the week before setting up tents etc and collecting/sorting jumble. Also we think the reduction in revenue is a direct result of the advertising using our small leaflets/fliers – there were lots this year that weren’t delivered and as such we had less people through the door.

We are looking into resolving this issue for the next Jumble in March – we definitely need ALL families to help in this effort – even if you can’t help at the Jumble itself – we are all in this together……

As soon as you get your 2019 Diary make sure that you keep the 23rd March free for the next one…..
