Remembrance Sunday 2017

The Group was strongly represented this year, starting with a Parade from our Headquarters, a short Special Service at the Scout Memorial in the Cemetery, the laying of Poppies made by the Beavers and then to St.Peters for the Town Annual Service. Thanks must go to June Read, our Lay Reader for conducting our Special Service with the Beavers reading some dedications remembering Old Scouts who gave their lives. Parading afterwards to the War Memorial with our Colours, a Wreath was laid on behalf of all Scouts lost conflicts Worldwide. After the Parade back to St.Peters, Hot Dogs were served to the Young People. The Scout Active Support Unit offered Teas and Coffee to the Townsfolk, raising £130 for the Royal British Legion. Thanks must go to all our Leader Team and SASU Group for this magnificent effort!

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!

 
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.
