Scoutabout 2014

Three days of Scouting and Guiding fun!  6,500 people.  Ardingly Showground.  It could only be Scoutabout 2014!

From abseiling to zorbing, from bellringing to driving - Scoutabout had it all! Caving, crafts, scuba diving: it seemed that everything was possible at the South of England Showground as Scouts and Guides from all across Surrey met for a weekednd of incredible activities.  

Whilst it might not have been the warmest weekend of the summer, nothing stopped the fun!  Canoeing?  Why not!  A dip in the Dunk Tank?  Of course! Water sliding?  Oh go on then!  A spot of caving?  The Black Hole was waiting!  There is nothing, nothing like Scoutabout as Wayne Bulpitt, The UK Chief Commissioner for Scouting saw when he joined the thousands on site on the Sunday Morning.

Esher District’s Cross Country Race!

Over 150 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and their leaders raced through the pine trees and heather of Oxshott Heath in late September as they took part in the Esher District Scouts’ cross country event.
Beavers and Cubs between the ages of 6-10 years ran 1.75 miles around the rugged terrain of the heath while older Scouts, Explorers and their leaders followed a longer 3 mile circuit.
Teddy of The Dittons was the first Beaver home of 63 runners; Laurence of 1st Claygate won the prize for the fastest Cub; Thomas of 1st Hinchley Wood took the lead for the Scouts; Euan of 1st Molesey was the fastest Explorer; Mike of 1st Oxshott raced home ahead of the service crew and other adults.
This was the first time the event has been held at Oxshott Heath, a Site of Special Scientific Interest cared for and managed by the volunteers of the Oxshott Heath Conservators.

Parents praised the varied and interesting terrain and the excellent facilities of the Oxshott Village Centre as well as the glorious sunshine that marked the event.

Japan 2015

Japan 2015 is drawing closer - for a way to help your section connect with Global Scouting, take a look at Japan in a Box,  the 'Join in Jamboree' programme for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree and request a visit from unit members to run an exciting Japan themed meeting for your section.

Scouting is an amazing movement!  It covers the entire globe.  At any given minute in time, someone is probably scouting somewhere around the world and so it was a real privilege to meet some of them either on air or on the internet.  

The 1st Walton Viking Sea Scouts certainly threw themselves into meeting others this year!
