No Better Way to start the term

As September comes round again and we’re getting ready to start up after the summer holidays, 1st Toton decided that the best way to launch into the new academic year was with a camp! From Low ropes to raft building to archery, they made use of all Walesby had to offer to have the best time imaginable

110th Anniversary Badge Revealed!

The winner is Chris from 2nd Beeson. Congratulations Chris!

A massive well done and thank you to all who took part.

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
