Join the Adventure
Scouting is an open and inclusive organisation for all young people aged 6 to 25 years – and adults too!
South West Notts Scout District covers the Attenborough, Beeston, Bramcote, Chilwell, Toton, Stapleford and Trowell areas on the outskirts of Nottingham.
Our 12 Scout Groups and 5 Explorer Scout Units currently provide a challenging and adventurous programme of fun-packed activities for over 800 young people.
SW Notts Scout District was represented at the Broxtowe Community Celebration Day held at Roundhill School on Saturday 16th July.
Scouts from the 1st Chilwell and Attenborough, th 6th Beeston and the 2nd Bramcote Scout Groups helped District Scout Leader Phil Danaford-Knight run the event.
A small camp site was set up, with the option of sleeping in a hammock for anyone that fancied that idea, and cooking on open fires. Members of the public were given the opportnity to bake twists or flatbread over hot embers, and for those for whom the heat from the fire coupled with the gorgeous sunhine was too much, they could take on the challenge of a low ropes balance activity.
There was also a display on Scouting which attracted interest from perspective young members and adult volunteers.
Saturday 16th July saw over 100 Beaver Scouts from across the District join forces for an afternoon of fun-packed activities at Bramcote Park, followed by a birthday “Celebration Picnic”.
Every Beaver received a picnic “goodie bag” as a memento of the event.
Clare Woodroffe, who planned the event, commented “It was an amazing afternoon and it was great to see so many of our Beavers joining in the fun and making new friends. We wanted to celebrate our 30th Birthday in style and everybody had a fantastic time!”
