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.

Medals of Merits for our Leaders

At the Annual General Meeting of the Nene Valley Scout District on June 27th, and much to their surprise, Lisa Swainston (our Group Scout Leader) and Fred Harris (Assistant Group Scout Leader - Beavers) received Chief Scouts Commendations for Good Services to Scouting. District Commissioner Michele Height gave out the awards in recognition of the work that the two Leaders carry out for Scouting. Congratulations!

Thanks Badge for Shooting Range

A Scouts 'Thanks Badge' was presented to Chris Hobbs-Rex for constructing a superb Shooting Range for use by all the Group members. Chris, having facilities at his Company, Stagecraft Visual Communications, situated in Higham Ferrers, designed and manufactured the range free of charge - a great and much appreciated donation which became one of Irthlingborough's greater assets! Congratulations!
