£1000 Grant for Community Engagement from ‘Moto in the Community Trust’

Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from SW Notts District gathered at the southbound Trowell Services Area on the M1 on Saturday 13th April to receive a £1000 Grant from Matt Stringfellow (pictured front right), representing the Moto in the Community Trust.

The funds will be used to increase the District’s community engagement – starting on 27th April when Scout Groups and Explorer Units will offer an afternoon of ‘free activities’ to young people in the Beeston area as part of their St George’s Day celebrations. Among the activities will be a climbing wall and a cave maze. Light refreshments will also be available.

The activity afternoon at Broadgate Park in Beeston is open to the public from 12 noon and will continue until 4.00pm. At 2.00pm there will be the traditional annual renewal of the Beaver, Cub and Scout Promises they make when joining the Scout Association. (Former members of the Association are also welcome to renew the Promise they took when they were younger.)

We are most grateful to the Moto in the Community Trust for their support for Scouting in this way.

2019 WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREE – WEST VIRGINIA, USA

wsj2019 logo

For the first time, a World Scout Jamboree will be hosted by three national Scout organizations: Scouts Canada, Asociación de Scouts de México, and the Boy Scouts of America. These three distinct cultures will join together to host the world Scouting community in a celebration of cultural exchange, mutual understanding, peace, and friendship.

The 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be held from 22 July until 2 August 2019, at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia, USA.

Unlike any other youth event, a World Scout Jamboree invites young scouts to surround themselves in the cultures of the world by joining Scouting friends from throughout the world at a single destination for 12 unforgettable days. The jamboree experience extends beyond their home – and beyond the boundaries of the host countries – to create a global adventure that will last a lifetime.

Six young people from SW Notts have spent many hours raising the funds to enable them to attend the Jamboree – which is, in itself, a vital part of the ‘Jamboree Experience’.

They couldn’t have done this without the support of members of the public, local charitaable trusts and their Scouting friends throughout the District, to whom they express their sincere thanks.
