Southampton General Hospital Scout Group

Posted on Tuesday, April 8th, 2014


In collaboration with Romsey District and potentially other scout districts we are meeting to discuss how we may help a new scout group that supports Southampton General Hospital Children’s Ward.

We have met with the Play Therapy department on G ward at Southampton.  It was a very positive meeting. The manager has worked at Great Ormond Street and knows how good it can be.  They will store equipment for us as well.

We would like to get all interested people together to update them and start it moving on the volunteer front.

We are holding a meeting at the Community Room at Bevious Town Primary School Cedar Road Southampton SO14 6RU on Monday28th April starting at 7pm –  If you are at all interested in helping please do come along to this first meeting. Would you please e.mail me if you are going to attend.

Many Thanks,

The Endeavour Explorer Unit of Southampton was joined by members of Odium District Air Explorers for the presentation of the Scout Wings to Jake at the Solent Sky Museum in Southampton.     Jake has been gliding at Lasham for the past 2 years and has completed many hours of training on the airfield and in a K13 glider; he flew his third successful solo glider flight in March 2014 to gain The Scout Wings.   Jake hope to continue gliding and increasing the distances he can travel and the time that he can stay in the sky by using the lift from thermals.

The presentation was made by Tony in the cockpit of The Sandringham flying boat followed by celebration cake and a full tour of the museum and all its aircrafts.   Everyone had a wonderful evening hosted by the manager, Steven, who welcomes bookings from all scouting sections to the museum on a Thursday night,
