It's only day 3 and the Scouts have: pitched camp, cooked meals, completed tent inspection, climbed Yes Tor, kayaked on the lake, climbed Black Tor, gone sailing, and loads more! Check out our twitter feed for updates during the day and the gallery for more photos.
1st Oxshott had a fantastic day at Surrey Scouts' triennial Cub Activity day at Hook Road Arena in Epsom on Saturday. One of the cubs told our leaders: "It was the best day of my life!"
Thanks to Ian, Steve, Richard and all the Cub leaders for taking the pack to the event. Check out the gallery for more photos!
A big thank you to all those Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Leaders that attended today...all 87 of you. What a fantastic turnout.
In all there were 432 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers on parade and there were 484 people in the Church including Leaders, parents and dignitaries. As some of you may know this is one of Jan Fuller's last functions as Mayor of Elmbridge and I think she was very proud to be a part of what we have achieved today.
The feedback from the other groups has also been really positive, the band loved the opportunity to play an extended set and from all points of view it was great to see scouting in the community.
Finally, as you know this doesn't happen without alot of hard work. I would particularly like to thank Andrew for organising the church service and all those from the church including the church band for all their help. I would also like to thank Anja for organising the stewards and the 'cakes and coffee' team, who amazingly raised £220. Thank you.
The website will have a slide show in the next few days and on that note if you have photographs or videos that you would like to share we would be very happy to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you once again and I look forward to seeing you next weekend at Family Camp.
Group Scout Leader - 1st Oxshott Scouts
We've just finished the final count of coppers and silver that you've collected for @WaterAidUK. I'm very happy to report that the Troop as a whole raised £134.84! The best water bottle had £20.90 in it.
Remember that £15 can cover the one-off set-up cost needed to provide a source of safe water for one person. So you've changed the lives of at least nine people. Click here for more information on Water Aid and how you can continue to make a difference. You can certainly consider this your good deed for the day.
