Scouts from across SW Notts District will participated in Acts of Remembrance, parades and services in Beeston, Stapleford, Attenborough, Inham Nook and Bramcote to mark Remembrance Sunday.
The 6th Beeston, 2nd Chilwell, 3rd Chilwell and 2nd Beeston Scout Groups, along with representatives from our Explorer Scout Units participated in the Royal British Legion Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial in Beeston, followed by a service in St John’s Parish Church.
Other Scout Groups from Chilwell, Attenborough, Bramcote, Stapleford, joined local congregations for their Remembrance Sunday services.
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”
2nd Beeston need your clicks! – 2nd Beeston Sea Scouts need to start raising money to replace their HQ building which is over 60 years old.
In order to support all the great work we do with boys and girls up to 18, and to have a facility that is accessible and usable by all, they need to build a new HQ.
Being a charity partner for Trent Barton buses will be a great opportunity to launch their fundraising efforts.
Remember to use the group name, 2nd Beeston Sea Scouts.
So get clicking!
Showing that summer camp isn’t just for Scouts, one hundred Beavers and Cubs from 1st and 2nd Toton Scout Groups embarked on a big two-night summer camp at Willesley Scout Campsite in June 2019! All the young people spent the night under canvas and went on an action-packed day trip to Conkers Discovery Centre. The young people enjoyed a variety of adventurous activities including, scaling the MEGA assault course; exploring the National Forest through the tree-top walks; escaping the range of warrens, mazes and soft play zones; riding the train; building dens in the woods; investigating the interactive exhibits and much more! The action-packed day was topped off with a campfire singalong, hot chocolate and marshmallows. It was safe to say that all had an amazing time and that there were many new friendships and #SkillForLife developed over the weekend. We cannot wait for the next big adventure!!
