AGM and presentation night

July saw 6th Farnborough’s AGM and Family fun night take place. The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts were joined by thier parents, members of the committee and our DC Becky Riley.

We had the awarding of the Fiona Allgood Endevour award for the Beaver, Cub and Scout that had given a real effort this year. :D

We also saw Tim our Assistant Scout Leader awarded with his Wood Badge :)

:cry: The Group is very sad to be saying ‘goodbye’ to Jo and Bob Jones as they step down from their leader roles in the Cub pack. Although, having said that, as they have both agreed to stay on as Occasional Helpers perhaps we should just be saying ‘au revoir’!
Bob was first to join the movement back in December 1989 as an Asst. Cub Scout Leader with a group in Sandhurst. Jo’s Scouting career began in January 1990 when Bob volunteered her to take over the Sandhurst’s group Beaver section which she ran until 1992. In August 1993 Bob transferred to 4th Camberley; Jo eventually joined him there as Cub Scout Leader in 1996, having spent a few years as Asst. Beaver Scout Leader at another group. In August 2002 they both joined 6th Farnborough where they were warmly welcomed as without them the Cub Pack would have closed.
“Thank you” Jo and Bob for everything you have done over the years and the difference you have made to so many lives.

:cry: We also said a sad farwell to Sheila Brown who is stepping down as our Group Scout leader. Sheila has served teh group tirelessly over the years taking on a multitude of roles and working to fill any gaps as they occurred. I asked the parents and young people if they could share a few words for the website and this is what they said.

“Can you thank Jo, Bob and Sheila fir all thier hard work they have put into Cubs. My son has thrieved so much since starting with them and his confidence has grown so much. He still loves cubs and am sure he will miss them very much”

“Thank you for your help you really made s difference”

“Thanks for making us feel welcome”

Afterwards the Beavers Cubs and Scouts all enjoyed activities from decorating biscuits to making their own paracord bracelets.

So thank you to everyone who has been part of the last year and here’s to the next one.

St George’s Day Parade

The District St George’s Day Parade took place recently on the 27th April and our Group took part. I think a big thank you should go out to our Flag Bearers who did a fantastic job carrying our Flags.
Our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Leaders took part in the service at the Forces Cathedral Church of St Michael & St George and all members in the District renewed their promise. Once the service was concluded there were several awards being awarded throughout the district including one to our Scout Leader Clive who received his 30 year service badge. Well done Clive! :-)
The District then paraded up Queens Avenue to all join in a District salute and were dismissed together. The day went well and even managed to finish in the sunshine before the heavens opened.

Update after the Cove Brook Spring Clean

Thank you to everyone that came along to the Cove Brook Spring Clean and helped out either with providing refreshments or with the litter picking. Everyone involved did a fantastic job.

It really is amazing the things that ordinary folk throw away, bike frames, estate agent signs, computer monitors, road signs, wheel clamps and many more all dragged out of the brook and surrounding woodland, along with sweet wrappers and tin cans. We managed to fill the truck that came for it all, so much so that two trips were needed.

The Scouts will use the time spent towards their Community Challenge Badge.

New Website

Welcome to our new website – this will be the place to come to find any information about scouting, so please check back frequently!
Please also leave us your comments on the website or what the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts do.
