102 AGM's and counting!! - 19th May 2011

2011; Another exciting and fast moving year! These last few months we have seen the formation of a brand new Adult Section and a New Explorer section. We are launching our 2nd Scout Section night within the next month! I would like to highlight those that perform on the front line, week in week out, the leaders of our Young Peoples’ Sections.

 

Beavers – Jason, Cubs – Including their 90th celebrations – Laurence and Scouts – Lisa.

2009 witnessed a 49% Growth, 2010 a 19% Growth, and not to be outdone, 2011 produced a 35% Growth in Group Membership. To put this in to perspective overall growth for 2011 Northamptonshire Scouts was 1.4% and Nene Valley District was flat. So, quite rightly we can be proud of our achievements again in attracting the Young People to our Group and retaining our Superb Leadership Team.

Irthlingborough Scouts Buy New Tents – after 15,000 nights camped

Irthlingborough Scout Group is rapidly expanding along with and to meet the needs of the Town. The Group registered a record Membership of both Young People and Leaders in January this year.

 

The Group Executive Committee, conscious of this and especially with a massive County Camp coming up in May and the Queens Diamond Jubilee in 2012, identified the need for new tents.

The last NEW patrol tents were purchased from funds raised in 1983 and have served the Group for all of these years – and have accounted for a total 15,000 nights camped in these tents! So, due investment was made in the Young People of the Town and the Group spent £3000.00 to buy 6 tents, made to a high standard by Blacks of Greenock – a premier supplier who still makes tents in the UK.
