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.

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
