Over the summer, we’ve moved our calendars – this means that if you previously used our iCal or XML versions, please update the links in your applications. These can be found in the usual place in each of the calendar pages on this website.
This year’s Cub camp at Oak’s Campsite saw our three sixes (named ‘Mango Six’, ‘Banana Six’ and ‘Dragon Fruit Six’) through a weekend packed full of activities and unexpected events!
The Cub year ended with our ‘Water Olympics’! In short: 20 cubs, half a dozen leaders and a few barrels of water. All with an Investiture in the middle!
Last night, two of our brilliant Beaver Scouts received their Chief Scout’s Bronze Award – just as they are moving up to Cubs. This is awarded for completing all the Beaver challenges and it’s the highest award a Beaver Scout can achieve!
Beeston Scouts Raise over £1700 for ShelterBox
The 6th Beeston Scout Group, supported by the Magellan Explorer Scout Unit and Trent SN Network Scouts, have raised an amazing £1739 for the ShelterBOX charity.
Colyn Kemp, Group Scout Leader at the 6th Beeston said “Conscious of the plight of others less fortunate than ourselves, and as part of our commitment as Scouts to ‘help other people’ we decided to do something about it.
“We contacted ShelterBOX - a charity that supports people who have lost everything as a result of a man-made or natural disaster. They distribute ShelterBoxes that contain the bare essentials to house families, keep them warm and fed, (free from mosquitoes) and includes tools to help them rebuild their lives. The boxes even include crayons, books and sometimes a cuddly toy for children. It was the perfect choice of a charity for our young members to help.”
We would like to invite all young members, parents, volunteers and supporters to attend our Annual General Meeting.
The AGM will be held between Beavers and Cubs at 6:30pm in the Scout HQ. In advance of the meeting, you can read the Annual Report and Annual Accounts (2013-2014) by vising our Reports and Accounts page.
We look forward to seeing you there!
