Congratulations to us! A superb night for the 2nd Southampton group.
Our Beavers took home first place trophy as did the scouts in the under 12s category.
The Cubs put on a strong performance to place second place in both their age categories too.
The scouts gave it their all and won the under 12s category taking home a trophy too.
Due to the outstanding performance from our young people, and the enthusiastic support from family and friends our group won the first place overall trophy. A huge well done to everyone.
Thanks to everyone who took part in our 2nd annual sponsored cycle ride around St James’ park last weekend. In total 329 laps of the park were completed between 15 beavers, cubs and scouts. Well done for doing your best and raising money for the group.
Our Scouts and Cubs (with some extra help from the 11th group) gave McDonalds a helping hand to keep the streets of Shirley free of rubbish. It was actually rather fun using the picker tools and it was surprising how much litter is carelessly thrown on the ground. After a hot afternoon in the sun, filling up 10 sacks of trash, our free ice creams afterwards tasted even better than we expected.
Being helpful through volunteering is at the heart of what we do and has always been part of our Scout Law. Well done to everyone who took part and making a positive impact in the community.
It’s been the wettest June on record, but the Sun came out for our BBQ fundraiser this week. It was fantastic to see so many families enjoying themselves and meeting other members of the group. The event helped to raise vital funds for our group. Thanks to all the organisers, cooks and helpers. Please support us and join future events soon.
Our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts joined together at District Camp at Ferny Crofts last weekend. Everyone took part in Olympic themed events and for the thrill seekers there was the zip line and rock climbing. It was fantastic to meet other groups from Southampton and take part in a huge camp fire on Sunday evening. Thanks to all the parents who also came to help and make the camp a success. Even the weather was kind considering what a wet month it has been.
