COVID-19 Update: Under government guidelines in March all Scouting Activities were suspended until further notice. We are now beginning our plans for a phased restart. Find all the latest updates here.
Meanwhile, we have just launched our 110th Anniversary badge competition that you can complete at home! Find out more details here.

Scouting at Home Badge Competition

During this time away from Scouting, our young people have been incredibly creative designing a new badge to celebrate what they’ve been doing from home.

Congratulations to the District winners. It was a difficult decision to decide a winner for each section as the entries were all so amazing! Well done to everyone who got involved.

We also want to say a huge well done to Charlotte from 1st Kirkby and Ashfield Scout Troop who has designed the badge that won out of all of Nottinghamshire

Time to Celebrate as 2 become 1

At the start of the new year, it was great to hear that 1st Stapleford and Trowell were merging to form one larger group. A few weeks ago, to celebrate this, a large fun-day was held at the Scout Hall consisting of a huge array of activities and food based challenges.

Everyone was presented with there new neckerchief and there were a few presentations and speeches but then the fun could really begin!! Everyone had a fantastic time but don’t just take my word for it – there’s plenty of pictures below.

1st Stapleford Scout Group was established 100 years ago and 1st Trowell were established some 30 years ago and as a result have a long history of Scouting in the area.

Group Scout Leaders Charlotte and Jeremy have worked hard to ensure that the amalgamation is a success for all.  All sections will now meet at the Scout Hall on Pinfold Lane Stapleford and look forward to many future years of scouting success 

The first of many Beaver Sleepovers.

For the first time in 5 years, Beavers from across South West Nottingham journeyed to Conkers Activity Centre for an exciting weekend full of activities and sleep-over (whether much sleeping happened is another question). There was over 200 beavers in one place which is an amazing feat in itself and from the stories they’ve shared, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

There was all sorts of activities to be done including: obstacle courses and learning about the animals that live on site.
I think its safe to say that everyone had an a fantastic time and we can’t wait to hear about the next adventures that young people from SW Notts go on.

Witham Beaver Colony – A Brilliant New Adventure

In the last couple of weeks, a new Beaver Colony was opened at 1st Chilwell and Attenborough Scout Group. They’ve had two meetings so far and they have already begun learning key scouting skills such as lighting fires and eating marshmallows. We can’t wait to see what other fantastic activities the leaders have got lined up for the future.

Beavers is the scouting section for 6-8 year olds. The aim is to teach the young people the basics of scouting through fun and games so that they are active and learning at the same time. There’s the opportunity to earn a wide variety of badges and undertake a huge assortment of events on offer from the Group and District.
