An important message to parents & guardians

We encourage Scouts to show independence and be responsible for themselves wherever possible and appropriate. It is therefore really important that you encourage your youngster to read this update every week, so that they can ‘Be Prepared’ on their Troop Night. We greatly appreciate your support with this.

A competition for all Scouts

To all Scouts, read through this update so you can ‘Be Prepared’ and also have the chance of earning some ‘Scout of the Month’ points. This week you need to find out and write down the names of three countries where there are no Scouts. Don’t forget to put your own name on the piece of paper. You will get 5 points for each correct country.

This week at Scouts

This week at Scouts you will be able to earn your Hobbies Badge. You will need to do a little preparation so we are giving you a ‘heads up’ There are two options for passing this badge.

Option 1 – If you have been collecting something such as coins, stamps, football cards , model cars, or anything similar for at least 4 months bring along a sample of your collection to Troop Night next week. You will need to show your Patrol your collections and talk to them about it and answer their questions.

Option 2 – If you have another Hobby such as model making, lego building, craftwork or anything similar and have been doing it for at least 4 months, bring along some examples of your work, tools you use or similar. You will need to give a short talk about your hobby to your patrol and answer their questions.

If you already have the Scout Hobbies Badge you can earn a second badge providing it is a different collection or skill the the one you used previously.

If you have any questions about what you need to do, or any help or advice then ask a leader at Troop Night this week or email [email protected]
