Scouts This Week

Monday 1st, Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd April

As someone once said, It's Christmas!

We are out and about this week for our annual Christmas Quiz, meeting in Henley-on-Thames - 19:45 till 21:15 (all nights)

Uniform is not required, and as usual, bonus points for Christmas theme "stuff" worn whilst out and about
(Wear your necker, and don't forget some money for the chip shop)

Meet at Grey's Road Car Park (near the Town Hall) and collect from outside the Town Hall (maybe with an impromptu Carol service thrown in!)


Wargrave Road is closed in Twyford. You may need to allow a bit of extra time for the journey, if it hasn't reopened!

Troop / Group / District / County / National

Berkshire County Dragonboat Regatta

Sunday June 30th
It is a few years since we took part in this event, Wokingham Waterside Centre.

As in the past, this will be a fun event open to teams of Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and SN members. Moreover, it will enable Cubs & Scouts to obtain one of the new activity badges without doing anything else.

No previous experience or equipment is required as the Waterside Centre will provide the boats, paddles, buoyancy aids etc. as well as qualified helms who will tell your team what to do.  The maximum number in a team is 11 (10 paddlers and one drummer) the cost for taking part is £7.50 per paddler, we will enter a team as long as we have a team of at least 8 to crew a boat. Entries must be submitted by start of May, so if you would like to take please let me know by email before April 25th at latest, so that I can put a team entry in. Email purp at to confirm your place.

Loddon District Shooting Competition

Saturday 27th April
Four different events (field archery, target archery, air rifles plus one other), prizes, medals and a trophy for the overall best team, all are welcome and no previous experience is needed - from what we have seen over recent weeks you are all more than capable of doing well at this event.
Full details and a copy of the information and shooting permission form for the event can be found below. If you would like to take part please email Zed to confirm your place.

Many of you receive badges from the activities and camps; if you're unsure where they go then have a look at our Scout Badges page - this also has links to the relevant requirements for each of the Awards you can earn.

If there are any badges in any of the categories that you think you might have earned or want to earn then have a look on the Scout Association's website here to see what you have to do and then have a chat with a Leader or Sue at one of our troop nights.

Finally, please make sure that you get your badges sewn on; you've put the effort in to earning them, the Leaders have put effort in to running a programme that gives you the opportunities and the Group has bought them so wear them on your uniform with pride!
