In a thrilling series of races consisting of collisions, over taking and neck-and-neck finishes our team of Scouts gave it their all and sailed to victory at the annual Southampton District Raft Race.
Did we have the best raft? Well, it survived 6 races. The ‘Britannic’ served us well.
Were our square-lashing the strongest after weeks of practice? Absolutely.
Were our home-made paddles the best in the world? Of course!
Did the Jelly Babies and Cadbury’s Fingers give us the extra boost we needed in the final? It was either that or all the cheering (and dog barking) from from our supporters on the riverside.
Our victory is shared between the winning team, our other scouts who hand build the paddles and everyone who came along to support on the day cheering ’2nd to none’ for today we truly are.
Thanks for everyone who attended our Annual General Meeting on 22nd May. It was great to see so many people there from all the different sections, celebrating the achievements and growth of the group over the last 12 months.

Congratulations to us! A superb night for the 2nd Southampton group.
Our Beavers took home first place trophy as did the scouts in the under 12s category.
The Cubs put on a strong performance to place second place in both their age categories too.
The scouts gave it their all and won the under 12s category taking home a trophy too.
Due to the outstanding performance from our young people, and the enthusiastic support from family and friends our group won the first place overall trophy. A huge well done to everyone.
Thanks to everyone who took part in our 2nd annual sponsored cycle ride around St James’ park last weekend. In total 329 laps of the park were completed between 15 beavers, cubs and scouts. Well done for doing your best and raising money for the group.
Some of our keenest Scouts had the opportunity to join the 14th Highfield Scouts in Kandersteg, Switzerland for their Summer Camp. It looks like they had an awesome time; Take a look at the video to see what they got up to.
