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.

Summit 2017

Posted on Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

You’ve got to be tough to get through a weekend in Snowdonia! Scouts, Explorers and Network members have just returned from an adventurous trip reaching the peaks of North Wales. Saturday’s mist, rain and wind didn’t stop our teams reaching the summits of Snowdon and Tryfan. By Sunday the weather eased, rewarding us with some stunning views. Well done to everyone who attended, it’s a big achievement.

Paralympic Athlete Aaron Phipps Comes to Visit

Posted on Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

For the Disability Awareness Badge we had an amazing evening with Aaron Phipps. A truly inspirational person!
We had over 75 young people come along from Beavers and Cubs. What an amazingly positive person he is, certainly an inspiration! The beavers especially liked watching Aaron flip an opponent out of his wheelchair in the 2012 London Para Olympics! The young people were so well behaved. Big thanks to Amanda Wallace for organising this event.
