Congratulations to Liam and Lewis on their involvement this year representing Southampton City in “Roverang”

Lots of hard work and commitment and a great show

Delta Force Paintballing Romsey Scouts

Scouts Paint-balling Day

Posted on Monday, February 5th, 2018

Last weekend, over 40 Scouts and leaders spent the day blasting paint-balls at each other at Delta-Force in Romsey. Young people from the 2nd, 7th, 13th, 14th and 29th took part in 12 team games ranging from defending castles, protecting the president in an apocalyptic London and surviving a zombie invasion.

It was a great day of working together, meeting other people from local groups and having the opportunity to shoot paint at each other for fun. We were blessed with a sunny and dry day, although it was pretty chilly.

Well done to everyone who took part. We had some wonderful feedback from the organisers to say that the Scouts were all brilliantly behaved and got really stuck in with the games.  Follow the link below to see some of the photos we took on the day.

Last weekend Southampton City Network along with members from Southampton and Solent SSAGO’s had a festive weekend at our district campsite. Activities included a fire (of course), a Christmas Dinner with all the works and other games. They even found time to help keep the site looking great. Thanks to all who took some time out to work onsite, fixing the gate post to the enclosure and clearing up the site.

Well done to Eve, Elaine and the Beaver team for the Christingle service at St James’ Church.

All the Beavers really enjoyed the songs and their Christingle messages.
