We are always looking for additional volunteers to join our Leadership team. However as our numbers have grown over this last year we are finding ourselves close to our upper limit of members. Without volunteers we are unable to grow the sections further and this limits the number of young people that can join. If you are thinking of getting your young person into Scouting why not get involved yourself.

Responsibilities include organising games, attending fun events, encouraging children to reach their potential, imparting knowledge, etc.
Full support and training given. Please note references and DBS check required.

So if you are, or someone you know is, aged 18 or over and you think you’ve got what it takes, why not send us a message using the contact us page.

The human fruit machine at the Cove village fair

The 6th Farnborough Scout Group had a great time at the Cove village fair last weekend. We ran our infamous Human Fruit Machine where the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Leaders all got stuck in. The day finished with the group raising over £100.

The group would like to thank everyone that took part, everyone that played our game and for the very kind donation from the folks on the plant stall.

Scouts Global Challenge

For his Global Challenge Badge one of our Scouts is investigating slavery both overseas and here in the UK. Please take a moment to see his message:

“When I was younger I visited the Slavery Exhibition in Liverpool.
I was shocked at the appalling treatment that the slaves faced, and was horrified when I learned that slavery still exists today.
So when I had to chose an issue for my Global Challenge Badge, it was a good opportunity to research further into slavery.
I hope that I can help the cause by alerting others that slavery still exists, and needs to be stopped.”

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. :)
