Beavers visit thw Hindu Temple

As part of their Faith understanding, the Beavers visited the Hindu Temple in Wellingborough which is a really magnificent building. Our well-behaved Beavers studied articles within the Temple and learned about the Hindu Religion and were warmly welcomed!

Cubs make Bird Boxes for Rushden Lakes

The Cubs donated five 'Bird Nesting Boxes' that they have made to Rushden Lakes, so that they can be fixed to trees around the Nature Trails. Cubs made the boxes as part of their DIY badges and were made under the supervision of Cub Leader, Karen Hutchinson and Assistant,Steve Kurn. The presentation was made to Katie King, the Wildlife Trust's Education and Community Officer, by Cubs Libby, Emily, Austin, George and Jamie. The event was co-ordinated by Sophie Rolfe who, as well as being an Explorer Scout Leader within our Scout Group, is also a Ranger at the Nature Reserve.


This year the Scouts combined their COLD CAMP with activities jointly arranged for the Cubs. Scouts and Explorer Scouts slept out- under canvas- to gain their "Brass Monkey Pennant" with the Cubs using the Will Smith Chalet in order to take part in the daily activities. Scouts camped in wet and very muddy conditions and were teamed with the Cubs for outdoor activities which included 'Backwoods Cooking'. Supervised by our Leader Team and supported by our Scout Active Support Unit, more than 50 members shared the weekend activities. A great time was enjoyed by all and afterwards family washing machines were called into action to clear up the mud! Thanks must go to Karen and the Team for arranging this successful event!
