REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY 2016

Remembrance Sunday commenced with a walk to St.Peter's Church for the Service. At the Scout Memorial Poppies made by the Cubs and Beavers were then laid at the grave.

The entire event was very well supported by the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and their Leaders. They proudly paraded the Group's colours and laid a Poppy Wreath at the War Memorial.

Fred Harris, our Beaver Leader, sounded the Last Post at the Act of Remembrance.

All our Young People enjoyed Hot Dogs and Soft Drinks afterwards at Parsons Green.

The Scout Active Support Unit offered tea and coffee to the Townsfolk and managed to donate over £150.00 to the Royal British Legion thanks to the kind generosity of the public.

Leaders,SASU Members, Helpers,Supporters and Explorer Scouts managed the Hall Park Rear Gate and collected more than 500 tickets and mountains of cash to support the Nene Valley District's Annual Display. Irthlingborough's Group will benefit from our support for the event.

During the construction of the new 21-house development adjacent to the Scout Headquarters. The builders SMDL New Homes co-operated with us during the access problems associated with the footpath closure.

For his kind support and for the provision of a new tarmac-surfaced footpath allowing us much improved access, the Thanks Badge was presented to Mr.John Leydon, Director, SMDL New Homes thus showing our appreciation.

 
Irthlingborough Carnival 2016

Scouting played it's part in the Town's Annual Carnival with the Beavers and Cubs winning a Silver Cup for their entry in the Parade depicting 100 years of Cub Scouts.

Despite hours of preparation the day was spoiled by heavy rain but this did not stop the fun and music!

Scouts and Explorer Scouts headed the Parade with our 100 year-old Trek Cart giving out the change and the Young People almost drowning in the circuit of the Town.......

The Scout Active Support Unit arranged teas, coffee and soft drinks at the Recreation Ground.

We had a surprise visit from the Pirates of the Caribbean (Lisa and Nick), and this gave everyone a chance to win some Rum (and other prizes) on our Treasure Island Game.

Sincere thanks to all who supported the event, the Beaver and Cub Leaders, Helpers, Leaders and the the SASU Team
