Group Camp 2018

Another successful Group Camp was held at Jordans Scout Activity Centre at Gt.Barford.  As many as 60 Young People, their Leaders and Helpers made this camp a fun weekend - in great weather.  Beavers camped as well, being the first time that these 6-8 year-olds had a taste of life under canvas!  Thanks to their Leaders Claire, Karen M, Liam and Seiann. The camp was organised by Karen Hutchinson supported by Steve and Howie from the SASU - who cooked very well to feed the masses!  Thanks to Sam Sumner, Steve Kurn, Anna Tillin, Calum King, Lance Goodman, Paul Hudson, Andrew Baker and SASU Members Steve Griffiths, Ann and Bob Gotch, Chris Fisher, Mike Digby and Ivan Kench.

Scouts visit Fire Station

The Scout Troop visited Wellingborouh Fire Station and had an interesting time understanding the workings of a fully-manned operational station. Using the fire and rescue systems, all the Scouts had a chance to try out at least part of being a firefighter!  Sincere thanks to the Fire Officers for laying on such a great visit.
