South West Notts Scouts News

Lest We Forget!

poppy-appealRemembrance Sunday with a difference!

Traditionally Scouts from across SW Notts District have participated in Acts of Remembrance, Parades and church services on Remembrance Sunday.

Sadly this year many parades, including the Civic Remembrance Parade in Besston have been cancelled but we have been with you all in mind and spirit.

They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, not the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,

We will remember them

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

Beeston i-Scout Charity Shop Closure

Nottinghamshire Scouts regret to announce that their charity shop on the High Road in Beeston will not re-open following the end of ‘lockdown’.

We would like to thank all of our valued customers who have supported this charity shop over the past 9 years, either by purchasing items or donating items for sale. We really appreciate the support you have given to Scouting.

We would also like to thank the many volunteers that have helped to staff the shop over the years for their time and support.

If you would like to continue to support Scouting in Nottinghamshire, our Sherwood charity shop at 606 Mansfield Road, Sherwood, Nottingham hopes to be able to open again later this year once circumstances permit. We will advise you on this page when the Sherwood shop re-opens and hope to see you there at some time in the future.

Thanks again, and please keep well by keeping safe.
