Beavers and Cubs Christmas Party

Happy Christmas 2014

Beavers and Cubs enjoyed their Christmas Party at the Town Band Club on Sunday 21st December.

Games, fun and Christmas Treats for all!Everyone waiting for Santa on the 25th..........

- Rounding off a great year for our Younger Members.


Brass Monkey Time Again!

It wasn't very promising weather at the weekend of 14-15th February for camping - even at Overstone Scout Campsite!

"Lo and behold" the weather held out offering the Scouts a chance to camp in the colder weather and their parents to enjoy a Valentine's Treat - with children away for that particular weekend!

Pictures show that all the Scouts (and their Leaders) went home just the slightest bit muddy but only in timely advance of some heavy rain - but with dry tents and almost dry Scouts to tell the tale!

Thanks must go the the Leader Team, Lisa, Jay,Lance and Paul for their time in support of the Young Peiple.

Cubs Bingo Night

On Saturday 21st February, the Cubs held a Bingo Night at the Town Band Club.It was supported by 22 adults and 4 children and we had a most entertaining evening of Bingo.

The Bingo Caller was our own Fred Harris (Cub Scout Leader).The event started at 8.00pm with the first 4 games, prizes being set at £5.00 per 'line' and £10.00 for a 'full house'.

After the first 4 games refreshments were served and then we sold the Raffle.We reserved a Bingo game just for the children with the prize being an Easter Egg!

After this we settled down to another 4 games, the final calling was for £30.00.

A sum of £183.50 was raised including the proceeds from the Raffle.

This money will be added to the funds being raised for our CUBJAM 2016 event. Our thanks must go to all who supported us!


CHRISTMAS FEST 2014 - Irthlingborough

Scouting  was well represented at the Annual ChristmasFest held in the High Street.

Despite the very cold conditions, hundreds of Townspeople turned out to enjoy the entertainmant and the Charity Stalls.

Scouts provided a visit to Santa for the children, Scouts dressed as Santa's Helpers and sold Glo sticks, Cubs ran a stall to raise funds for the 2016 Cub Jam and our own Scout Active Support sold teas, coffee and a most welcome cup of Hot Soup.

The Support Unit presented a a cheque for £122.00 to the Royal British Legion -proceeds from Remembrance Sunday.

Thanks must go to all our Team and those who supported the event.

Jamboree on the Air 2014

JOTA? What's that? - well, Irthlingborough Scout Group took part in the 'Jamboree-on-the-Air' which links Scout Groups all over the World by Amateur Radio Stations. Kettering Amateur Radio Club set up their special station at Huxlow College, being the highest geographical point in the Town.Our Young People had a marvellous opportunity to speak with not only local area Groups - in Reading and the Home Counties but Romania and suprisingly enough, Namibia in South West Africa!

4 Beavers, 1 Cub and 7 Scouts managed to gain their Communicator Badges!

We are indebted to Les Horn ,the Kettering Amateur Radio Club and to Huxlow Managers for their very kind support for what we hope to make an annual activity.
