Explorer Takeover

This week saw a take over by some local Explorer Scout Leaders. Carl and Adam joined us in the hut to introduce themselves and show the Scouts that the fun and adventure continues long after they leave us. The Scouts had a great time and give a big shout of thanks out to our new friends.

Bag Packing

Members of the 6th Farnborough spent a few hours on a Saturday helping shoppers at Sainsbury’s in Farnborough pack their bags to raise money for the Group. A big thanks goes out to all that took part and the shoppers who donated so generously. Their efforts managed a grand total of £358.00.

Well done everyone.

Scouts Poster contest

See the Scouts posters

The Scouts have all had a go at designing a poster for Scouts. The Poster could be hand drawn or made on a computer. The only rules were that it needed to promote Scouting and have our name on it. All of the posters will be put on our website for a couple of weeks and we are inviting votes on which one is the best. Please leave a comment stating which one you think should be the winner. The winning Poster will be left on the website and its creator will have their name added to the Scouts very own infamous Bog-Seat trophy.



Swimming Gala 2014

A big well done to all our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts who took part in the recent District Swimming Gala. They all did incredibly well and put in some fantastic efforts. Also a big well done to those members that managed to finish in the top three places of their races.

You never know I might even take part in the leader race next year :)

Cubs enjoy a Night Hike

Last night the Cubs went on a Night Hike they all did really well and completed the route without in high spirits. They completed challenges on route too.

The Cubs used the activity to complete their Map readers badge, carrying out a couple of map reading tests whilst on an outdoor activity

Well done Cubs

It’s also good to see that reflective Hi-Vis clothes really work. :)

Remembrance 2014

Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from 6th Farnborough Scout Group joined others in the district to mark Remembrance day at the Aldershot garison Church this past Sunday. The day was filmed by Songs of Praise and broadcast later that day. Did you watch it and did you see any of our members

Our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts were lucky enough to get a photo with Bill Turnbull

The Scouts Summer Expedition

Well with summer here the Scouts set off on their Expedition.

They set off from Farnborough main at 9:30 on Friday and took the train to London Waterloo where they walked to Trafalgar Square, here they found their first statues and London’s smallest police station

then it was on to Buckingham Palace where they ate their lunch and watched the changing of the Guard.


After this is was a nice walk through regents Park to Parliament Square before walking up Whitehall to see if the current Prime Minister was in.

Now was the time for the surprise. The Scouts were told to get their Shirts on and make sure that their Scarves were on straight as it had been arranged for them to go past the iron gates and armed police officer to go up to the door of No 10 Downing street.

Time now to set off for the Camp site now so after a short train ride to Chingford it was a 45 minute hike to Gilwell Park and they all made it. A little tired and a little dirty but they were all there. Time for a rest and booking in then the tents needed putting up. Tomorrow would be a day of activities and exploring the campsite, setting a campfire and keeping it going, cooking dinners and even sleeping out under the stars. Memories to keep for ever.
