St Peter's Christmas Tree Festival

On the weekend of December 14-16, the Cub Section entered a decorated Tree in the Christmas Tree Festival.

Well done for participating in this popular Parish activity!


Santa Claus came to Irthlingborough!

Hordes of local children visited the Grotto set up specially by Santa's Elves(Scouts!) and Helpers. Everyone received a gift as part of Scouting's contribution to this superb Town event.

Jolly Santa had a special word for each child.......

Whilst patiently waiting, the parents could enjoy a warming cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate provided by the Scout Active Support Unit.

Mrs. Christmas (Lisa) set up her stall to sell Christmas Illuminated Novelties with the whole effort raising funds for our Scouting activities.

An opportunity was also taken to present a cheque of £153.00 to the Royal British Legion as proceeds from the tea and coffee at the Remembrance Sunday event on Parsons Green.

The Scout TOTE was drawn for December as well as the winner of the Christmas Bonus Hamper.

A hearty "thank-you" to everyone for helping and supporting this event.

Back-to- Basics Camp 2016

On a cold and frosty morning in late November, brave Scouts and slightly-mad Scout Leaders went to a camp on a remote(ish) island in the wilds of Cambridgeshire, with no running water or plumbing. After a very icy night, the Leaders awaited the arrival the brave young Scouts.

Upon arrival tents were quickly erected with a little competition to put them up in good time. The next task was to build a Fiji fire pit and then gutting fish, cooking them on the open fire and eating them along with a squeeze of lemon! Delicious....

In the afternoon Scouts practised their fire-lighting skills and then made the main cooking fire. The evening meal was a Chicken Stew with the Scouts learning how to butcher and fillet the chickens.

"Food tastes better when it's cooked over an open fire - was the general comment!"

Morning brought an overlap in activities with a local Fire and Rescue Team arriving for an exercise.

After discussions and a cup of coffee, it was agreed that the Scouts should carry on with their Fishing Activity and the Fire Team do their training afterwards........... Scouts used bamboo canes as rods but only one fish was caught!

A hearty Brunch was then enjoyed and very dirty and tired Scouts came back to the Headquarters together with their exhausted Leaders. Everyone was ready for a hot bath but enjoyed one of the best November weekends ever!
