Volunteering Dec182015

Volunteering

The Group is constantly in need of parents to assist with each of the sections and with the general running of the group. There are many roles within the Group where you can offer help, some are uniformed (or not) and are hands-on ‘on-the-night’, others support uniformed leaders or assist with the administration and the general running of the Group. Whatever skills you have to offer, and whatever level of commitment, regular or occasional, you are able to offer – we need your help! You might even enjoy it! Please contact us via the Contact Form or just come down and have a chat with our Group Scout Leader on Friday night. For even more information about volunteering, see the Joining The Adventure and the Getting Involved sections of the Scouting website.   We also have the following specific volunteer roles to fill: Admin Volunteer Exec. Committee   Parent Supporters The group is in need of an Admin Volunteer to help out on Friday nights in the main foyer, collecting subs and completed permission forms, giving out information, etc. Currently this role is performed by our GSL. Having an admin volunteer would free up our GSL to perform the other 101 things that need resolving on Friday nights across all three sections. If you may be able to help with this role, please contact the Group Scout Leader (see above). The Executive Committee is made up of parent representatives from each of the sections. It’s role is to assist with the running and decision making of the Group, and ensure that it meets its legal obligations as a charitable organisation.  The committee meets 6 times a year, usually on a Thursday at 19:45, for about 1½ hours.  We currently require parent representatives for all three sections of the Group. If you may be able...

GSL’s Blog

5th May 2015 3rd Feb 2015 Hi All, Time for a bit of an update seeing as it was the beginning of Feb since I wrote last! The Winter/Spring term is always the hardest to deliver because very often we are cooped up indoors and by the end of a school week all the kids are going stir crazy and want to let off steam. That said, the programmes devised and delivered by the section leaders all went well. The end of April saw the annual St George’s Day parade and here is where I need to let off a little steam… All year, the leaders, young leaders and group supporters give their time freely and willingly to provide each and every Scout a lively programme and to help them develop skills needed to see them through life. We don’t ask for much in return, except the support from yourselves as parents a couple of times a year. The turnout for this year’s St Georges Day parade was poor to say the least and as you read this I’m sure you will be going through the excuses why your child did not attend. I will not try and sell the event, to some kids it’s as dull as dish water, but that’s not the point. In life, we all have to endure things we don’t want to do, but do so out of a sense of duty or a wanting to not let people down. This is one such event. By allowing your Scouts/Cubs/Beavers to not bother showing, you let us as leaders and our Scout Group down. I am proud of the children I see growing and developing through Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, I would like to think they themselves have a little pride...

Scout Activities 2016

River Walk – July 2016 The Scouts enjoyed a river walk along the River Hipper, starting at The Bulls Head, Holymoorside, and finishing at Somersall Park, Brampton. At certain places it was almost waist deep. Starting off.Getting deeper.It’s waist deep further on! Cardboard Ovens – May 2016 The Scouts made cardboard ovens and attempted to cook brownies and scones. Lots of ovens were made, but they were a bit short on time and so nothing edible was baked (this didn’t stop the Scouts from tasting their efforts or eating the uncooked brownie mixture).

Spitewinter Scout Camp Jul032016

Spitewinter Scout Camp

Weekend Scout Camp – July 2016 Twelve of our Scouts (and three young leaders) took part in a weekend camp (Friday – Sunday) at the Spitewinter campsite this weekend. The rain held off on Friday night as they setup camp, but it was wet, windy and a bit chilly later on, though this didn’t prevent the wide game or dampen spirits. Saturday morning was sunny and bright as the two patrols (and young leaders) cooked their breakfasts. Scouts were then divided into two groups and learned how to use hand axes safely, and how to build a shelter (which they needed as we had showers from mid-day onwards). The young leaders then got the main camp fire going. After lunch Scouts attempted both fire lighting (in the rain) and backwoods cooking (baked potatoes, steamed haddock, and a fried egg cooked in a frying pan made from a stick and some tin foil). The day was finished off with no-chicken korma, rice and hot dogs, and entertainment around the camp fire which had been stoked all day by the young leaders! To our great relief, we had sunshine all day Sunday which allowed us all to dry out and pack all the tents away dry. Just before leaving camp, a number of the youngest Scouts were invested. All of the leaders/helpers were impressed by the positive attitude and perseverance of all our Scouts (many of which have only just moved up from Cubs) over the weekend, despite the trying weather. Our more experienced Scouts handled the responsibility of looking after the younger ones with ease and the three young leaders proved themselves to be a real asset to the group, throughout the camp. A big thank you to all the leaders, young leaders and parent...

Water Weekend Apr172016

Water Weekend

Water Activity Weekend Camp The Scouts took part in a number of water activities at the Trent Lock Scout Activity Centre. To get to the centre, Scouts must cross the river on a small boat, there is no escape once they are there! Tents were pitched on Friday night just before the rain started for the night. On Saturday, they were very lucky with the weather and were able to go kayaking in the morning and then canoeing in the afternoon. Saturday night was cold with one Scout’s wet suit shoes freezing solid, as well as there being ice on the tents. Despite the cold night, the sun was out on Sunday, so the Scouts built two rafts and went rafting. Many on the Scouts even jumped into the river afterwards (voluntarily). A huge thank you to all the Scout leaders, parent helper, and activity leaders at the centre – all the Scouts had an amazing weekend.

Well done to those that took part – it was a really tough challenge! I just want to go home.   Creative Challenge – November 2015 A part of our Creative Challenge badge work, each Scout made a wooden box.

Our Time At Peak 2015 Peak 2015 was a great camp. Despite the weather being a bit wet when we setup camp on the Friday night, by Sunday it was warm and sunny, and it stayed that way for the rest of the week. A huge area of Chatsworth had been used and split into lots of sub-camps, named after periods in history – see this map of the campsite for more information. 3rd Brampton were located in the Ice Age sub-camp – close (but not too close) to one of only two shower blocks on the camp. The camp site was closed to the public (except on the open afternoon) which allowed Scouts do go off in small groups and do whatever activities they wanted to do – and there was lots to do!
