Our Scout troop have decided to make 2014 the year of trying new things. This term we’ve been mastering circus skills such as juggling, plate spinning and the diablo. Congratulations to the brave scouts who put on a show, performing their new tricks to an audience.
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.
Did you remember the fifth of November? Our Scouts did. We made a Guy from old clothes and had a traditional ‘burning’ to remember the gunpowder plot.
Did Guy Fawkes have green hair?

A cracking weekend for some of our Scouts, joining the Explorers in Snowdonia for mountain hiking and rock climbing. A little rain, but a lot of fun & adventure.

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.
Our good friend Kate Budd has signed up for the gruelling 10 mile Great South Run in October and will be raising money for Wessex Heartbeat in memory of her late father Lee Budd.
Lee dedicated his life to Scouting in Hampshire and had very strong links with our group. He tirelessly offered support to our current and former leaders and young people. He organised countless activities and camps including the bi-annually Wye Valley camp and many on-the-water events. It is almost a year since his passing and is still very sorely missed.
Kate has been busy fundraising and made it into the Echo this week. Take a look to read more. Please dig deep and consider sponsoring her. CLICK HERE to make a donation online and follow her progress. Good Luck Kate!
