Walkabout 2015

Posted on Monday, October 26th, 2015

A huge achievement for the scouts who were up all night and completed the walkabout night hike along the waterfront from Titchfield to Warsash. On Saturday night, scouts were faced with 007-style missions along the way including a first aid emergency, interrogation and abseiling.

Congratulations to the secret agents from 1st Southampton who scored the highest points and took home the trophy. M will be pleased.

A big Thank You goes to Geoff Johnson and Mike Halliday who have kindly made and given us a table for our quiet area at our Wilverley campsite. It looks splendid. This is to remember a long standing friendship between them both.

Posted on Thursday, October 8th, 2015

A big thank you goes to Chris Davis for all his time and energy over many years as our district chaplain. It won’t be the same without the Emu or the Centurion.

I am pleased to welcome Deacon Brian Purchase as our new scout district chaplain. Brian will be helping us with cub carol service, Founders day and St George’s day and will be holding our Scouts own at next year’s district camp.

A very big welcome to him.
