We held our AGM for 2019-2020 via a virtual meeting due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Come and join us for our Group’s Annual General Meeting which was postponed last year. Anybody is welcome to attend, just get in touch with us to request the meeting details.
Explorers! We have some exciting news – we have the opportunity to take part in an Explorer District Bonfire evening and we can’t wait to see you all there!
These are some challenging days and it’s the children like you who have led the way in helping to cheer us all up.
Have you been drawing and painting rainbow pictures to spread a bit of hope and cheer at this difficult time?
If so, please send in your brilliant rainbow pictures to [email protected] so we can share them with the group and make a massive rainbow collage to spread the hope message further. If you haven’t already done one, get creative and make one to add to the collage.

We are now able to accept subs payments by BACS/standing order. If you would like to pay subs by BACS/standing order it must be paid in advance and we would suggest a payment of £10 per month. This will keep your payments on track, as with the weeks we are closed it will average out over the course of the year.
To set up to pay this way please put SUBS and your child’s name in the payment reference and email Luke at [email protected] to say that a payment has been made. We do still ask that your youngster checks in at the subs table at the start of the evening, so that our fire checklist and attendance register is correct.
You can also pay for activities and camps in this way. Put the reference as the activity name and your child’s name and then email Luke once the payment has been made.

So what do the organisers say about this event?
Main Event – constantly evolving…
You told us that you want a challenge, preferably one that is a surprise each year, so that is what we aim to deliver. Obviously, it is really hard to describe a surprise, so what can we tell you? We have a 3,000 acre site and surrounding land to set a dynamic route of between 10 and 30 miles, and a crack team of volunteers from across the country to make it happen! Who knows what this year will hold, all we do know is that the Evolution main event will be brilliant fun and test your teams and individual physical, mental and Scouting skills.
