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.

The Bat-Cave looked awesome!

Dinner and Campfire followed, led by Fred, a story from Tony Knott and the traditional toasting of marshmallows.

Cubs were soon asleep to then woke up to a hearty breakfast, fun on the Assault Course and off to the Chapel for 'Cubs Own'.

The Cubs reflected on the Law and Promise and thought about the fun and friends we had camped with.

First 'port of call' was the Smithery to see the collection and exhibits and then on to HMS Gannet, an 1878 Victorian Sloop.The Cubs went below decks to see how the sailors lived and worked.The essential lunch followed and after this the Cubs visited the 1944 Destroyer HMS Cavalier,going up to the Bridge,tried out the Captain's Chair,looked around the Galley, Crews' Quarters and saw the big guns.

The Cubs had a chance to ring the ship's bell!

After some recreation in the play area the Cubs visited the gift shop.

Later they went to the Ropery and were shown how to make a rope - and brought their handiwork home!

Cubs then visited the RNLI Lifeboat Station and saw examples of lifeboats throughout the ages.

Finally, the Cubs went aboard HMS Ocelot, a 1962 Submarine, passing through each compartment seeing how the sub-mariners worked and lived in such cramped conditions.

The Cubs returned home tired but had a very enjoyable and interesting day.
