It’s certainly been a busy weekend for our group. A very productive morning today combatting the rubbish on the streets of Shirley. Many thanks to Maccy-D’s for the free burgers and ice-cream afterwards. Well done to our adults, Scouts, Cubs and even a couple of Beavers who joined us straight from their sleepover!
Last week we held our AGM and celebrated another year of achievement and growth for our group. Well done to our young people for doing their best and our adult volunteers who make the adventure happen.
In case you missed it, here’s our year in review.

Less than 2 weeks into 2015 and the Scouts from 2nd Southampton have already been on camp. We braved the wind, rain and cold for a truly unforgettable camp at Gilwell Park. Joined by over 3000 young people from around the UK we took part in a range of activities including Mini-tank driving, quad biking, zorbing, high ropes and rock climbing.
