Irthlingborough Carnival 2017

Scouting took a leading part in this years Carnival - Irthlingborough's 80th! Scouts and Explorer Scouts headed the Parade with our old 103 year-old Trek Cart, giving out the change and collecting money for the Committee. Ivan and Nick took over the Team for this part of the proceedings and our entry won a Silver Cup! Beavers and Cubs had a walking entry entitled "Army" and had a super day organised by Karen and Claire. The Scout Active Support Unit erected a large Marquee earlier in the day to support the Committee. Afterwards the Scout Active Support Unit provided refreshments for the public and Chris Ward kindly arranged a Pirate Treasure Hunt Stall ably aided by the Pirate Queen Lisa ( our Group Scout Leader). A superb effort all around and a good advert for Local Scouting!

The Cub Pack took part in an all-County Competition to design a poster promoting " Learn to Swim " and won 1st PRIZE !!! The prize was to have 18 places at a supervised session at the Northampton Centre. A great time was had by all!!

 
Group Camp 2017

This year's Group Camp was held at Wadenhoe and formed the basis for Karen Hutchinson's Full Camping Permit. More than 60 Young People came along Cubs and Scouts to camp and the Beavers to spend a full day at camp. Activities included a Bouncy Castle, lots of Scouting Skills, a BBQ, and the Grand Campfire. Despite threat of bad weather we managed to bring all our tents home - dry! Congratulations to Karen who was successful in gaining her Permit enabling more Young People to take part in camps and expeditions. Thanks must go to all the Leaders and Scout Active Supporters who made the camp possible and supported her.

 
Sailing Camp at Ipswich 2017

Thanks to the generosity of Alan and Margery Watts, the Scouts and Explorer Scouts enjoyed a first-class weekend at Hallowtree Scout Camp and on the 'Mary G' , their ocean-going sailing boat. Everyone had the opportunity to sail out into the North Sea from the River Orwell, having a chance to navigate, steer and man the sails on the boat (and of course take turns at being sea-sick!). Scout Active Support Members Steve Abbott, Mike Digby, Nick Powell and Chris Ward took over the camp organisation and Steve was keen to try out one of the new fires with great results, providing a grand BBQ in honour of Mr and Mrs.Watts! Members also visited the nearby Jimmy's Farm , having a go at fishing and meeting some of the animals. Thanks must go to Lisa, Gill, Lance and Karen for making this a great weekend.
