Both the Scouts and the Cubs chose different ways to celebrate Pancake Day this year, The Scouts made very interesting and creative pancakes with various filling whilst the Cubs made traditional pancakes and enjoyed party games as part of their celebrations! Well done to all our Young People and their Leaders!

Explorer Scouts Plant Trees for Nenescape

Titans Explorer Scouts joined with the Nenescape Project to plant trees along the newly-created 'greenway' linking the old Rushden Station with the Rushden Lakes Shopping Centre. The path is on the old track-bed of the railway line and will be bordered with both ornamental and fruit trees. The Young People took part as part of their Award Scheme which covers both Scouting Awards and the Duke of Edinburgh's programme. Nenescape is a local charity supported in part by the National Lottery.

Queen Scout and DoE Awards

Delighted yesterday evening to see two more of ‘Nene Valley Network Scouts’ Steph Harding & Liam Marriott presented their well-earned ‘Queen Scout Award’ & ‘Duke of Edinburgh Gold’ badges from County Commissioner, Dean Smith. This means the section has now enjoyed 12 Senior Awards over the last 12 months.

Liam, a very active member of Network, plus a hard-working Cub Scout Leader with 1st Irthlingborough Scout Group, completed his ‘Gold DofE’ award, of which was the first for several decades with his Group. He linked in his Leadership role towards helping achieve his ‘QSA’ for example, running International activities which the young people thoroughly enjoyed. He also led several activities for the Cubs faith badge of which included visiting a Hindu temple and Mosque, exploring different faiths. Liam also explained to the Cubs about Scout membership, its history and values, plus what the Scout Promise and the Law means. Liam is also part of the team responsible for supporting the wider District strategy, for example helping set up a Brand-New Scout Group in Thrapston, plus raising awareness of Scouting in both Irthlingborough and Rushden.

Cold Camp 2019 Great Barford

Despite snow earlier in the previous week, Scouts and those Cubs coming up to Scouts, braved the cold. Fortunately the rain kept away with all the Young People and most of the Leaders sleeping out in tents. The Group has very adequate equipment for this climate recording minus 3 degrees overnight! The highlight of the camp was to prepare ( pluck,skin,draw ) pheasants and cook them by using a 'home made' BBQ over an open fire and also making Pheasant Stew...... A new taste for most of the campers and enjoyed by nearly everyone! In addition to some camp competitions, the Scouts learned how to cook a meal without utensils, preparing eggs, making camp damper-bread and chocolate bananas. Sincere thanks to the Leader Team and Helpers - and thanks to the good sunny weather we had no really wet equipment to dry out!


Christmas Capers 2018 !!

Beavers and Cubs joined with some Scouts, their Leaders and Helpers to celebrate an early Christmas! The Youngsters went along to Overstone Pack Holiday Centre to prepare the 'Tree' and wait for Santa to make an early visit. He did not disappoint! Apart from a very wet and muddy weekend everyone had a great time with a Christmas-Style Dinner being prepared for over 40 hungry mouths. A video show followed before parents collected very tired Youngsters. Some Scouts camped out as part of their Brass Monkey Pennant Award,braving very poor,wet and stormy weather. Thanks must go to the Leader Team for all their dedication and hard work and to the Scout Active Support Members for providing the traditional fayre.
