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.
St George was chosen as the Patron Saint of Scouting by the Movement’s founder, Lord Baden-Powell, as far back as 1907. Every year since then, Scouts across the world recognise St George in various ways, including a renewal of the Promise made by members when they join Scouting.
We invite you to join us on Saturday 27th April from 12 noon – 4.00pm at Broadgate Park in Beeston for what promises to be a fun-packed afternoon of activities for youg people. Scouts from Beeston, Beeston Rylands, Toton, Chilwell, Trowell, Bramcote, Stapleford, Attenborough will be celebrating St George’s connection with Scouting
We will be joined by local members of Girlguiding in Nottinghamshire, our sister organisation – also founded by Robert Baden-Powell
Current and past members of the Scout Association and members of Girlguiding UK will be invited to renew their Promise during a short ceremony at 2.00pm.
We looking forward to seeing you there.
