Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and the Active Support Unit all took part in the Town's 2015 Annual Carnival.

Beavers made a superb effort with their Float (the Mr.Men) and won the Brian Walker Shield, Scouts headed the Parade with our 100-year-old Trek Cart and provided 'change' for the onlookers, winning the Carvell Fencing and Decking Trophy for the best Young Peoples' turnout. Cubs arranged a stall to support their CUBJAM 2016 appeal and the SASU sold tea, coffee and snacks at the Recreation Ground to raise Group funds.

A fine effort by all our Sections and thanks must go to our Team of Leaders and Supporters.

Back to Basics Camp 2015

Scouts went 'Back to Basics' at Yarwell,near Oundle.

SASU Members Andy Hunt and Steve Abbott arranged a weekend to show the Scouts how to cook on an open fire ,prepare and serve  mackeral without utensils, make canvas bivvys (which some hardy souls slept in despite the rain overnight)!

Scouts were shown how to make fishing rods from willow branches and everyone managed to 'catch' a fish with the Champion Fisheman being Scout Conan.

The weather was hot and pleasant for most of the time and thankfully no wet tents were brought home.

Thanks to the Leader Team for supporting this event and for Nick and Luke Powell for their fishing 'tips'.

Cubs Summer Camp 2015

On 3rd to 5th July, the Cubs went to Overstone Scout Campsite for their Summer Camp.

Dressed as characters from Robin Hood, they arrived for a fun-packed weekend.

The Leaders having arranged to pitch camp on the Friday evening then went to dine out dressed in character, much to the surprise of the Toby Carvery!

Two teams of Cubs were chosen, one as the Merry Men with Fred as Robin Hood and the other team as the Sherriff's men led by Arend.

Inevitably an Archery session was soon underway with Fred( Robin Hood) supervising.Maid Marion (Akela Karen) then showed the Cubs how to make Medieval Oat Biscuits.

Will Scarlet (Lisa) and Friar Tuck(Lance) prepared the Evening Medieval Banquet!

Sunday saw the rival Teams in a game trying to steal each other'sTreasure and then enjoying a try at Grass Sledging,


Thanks to Fred, Karen, Lance, Lisa, Cyndy and Young Leaders Chloe, Arend, Josh and Viki.

They all worked so hard to make this camp a great success!

Mary 'G' Sails again !

With sincere thanks to Mr and Mrs Alan Watts  of Wattsons of Thrapston) Scouts were afforded a special experience to sail on a fully fitted Ocean-Going Yatch into the North Sea.

Scouts had an opportunity to learn about planning their journey, using Sea-Charts and appreciating the state-of-the art Navigation Instruments.

Turns were taken to 'steer the boat' and the Scouts were provided with a "Lunch afloat".

In addition the Scouts tried out the Aerial Runway, made an Enormous Camp-fire, had a go at ' Crabbing' in the Harbour, all whillst camping over the weekend at the superb Campsite operated by Ipswich District Scouts.
