Bonfire; A Message from our Chairman......
A big thank-you to all the leaders, committee members, parents, explorers, scouts cubs and beavers who helped make this year's fireworks and bonfire such a success.
From cutting endless rolls open to dragging pallets down to the fire; it wouldn't have happened without you.
I don't have the details of everyone who helped, but please pass on my thanks to anyone in your family who helped out. Mark
Bonfire 2016 Announcement....
Many thanks to all who supported our bonfire and fireworks event on 5 November. We hope the night was an enjoyable one for you and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!
Night Owl 2016 .....
118 Scouts started the competition and, 118 Scouts completed it! It is thought this the first time there has been 100% completion. Southwell Scouts were the eventual winners, but a team from 3W Scouts came second, missing out by just 4 points, our other team came sixth, but not many points behind. A big ‘well done’ to our two teams!
