Please read carefully as we have different activities each night this week.

Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th June:

We shall be meeting at HQ at 19:45 for an evening of cycling around the local villages. You do not require uniform, but must have your necker. Please bring your bike, a helmet (no helmet = no cycling!), a drink and lights for your bike if you have them. Any parents wishing to join us are most welcome to come along.

Wednesday 27th June:

We shall be out on (and in) the water this week, we are meeting at Engage Watersports over at Taplow Lake. Please meet at the earlier time of 19:30 you will need water gear (shorts, T shirt and wet shoes/old trainers), a towel and a change of dry clothes for afterwards. The cost is £15 (either cash or a cheque payable to 1st Twyford Scouts - Polehampton Troop) plus a completed Information form - which can be downloaded from the bottom of this webpage.  

The address for the centre is:

Taplow Lake, Amerden lane, Taplow, Nr Maidenhead SL6 0EA

We expect to finish around 21:30. Pick up from the same location.


Summer Campers - your final installments are due by the end of this month, please hand them to any leader at troop night.  See Summer Camp 2018 for details and forms.

Coming up soon:

The District Raft Race has been announced as Sunday 15th July 12:45-16:00 and forms part of the Murray Plate. If you're available and interested in competing (we need a team of around 6 scouts) then let us know at a troop night and (more importantly) send us an email.

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!
