What is it?
Roverang is a Scout and Guide show that is focused on having fun whilst putting on a stage show in a professional theatre. It gives young people the opportunity to sing, dance and act on stage of a professional theatre. There are NO AUDITIONS, we want everyone to have the opportunity. We want young people to have fun, make friends and enjoy the magic of the theatre.
Roverang is open to all members of the Scout and Guide movements from Beavers and Rainbows up to Network and Rangers (Up to 25 years old)
Rehearsals take place every Sunday at St Marys Independent School, Midanbury Lane, SO184DJ
Adults, Juniors and Kids rehearsals are 4pm – 6:30pm. Miniz (Rainbows and Beavers) rehearsal times will be set a little later but will be about an hour long at some time between these times.
We charge a one off subscription fee of £45 for cast members except for the miniz who pay £25. This covers the cost of the rehearsal venue, costumes etc.
Sign me up!
The sign up day is Sunday 14th Oct 4pm at the school. Adults, Juniors and Kids cast will stay until 6.30pm for their first rehearsal. Miniz cast will start rehearsals a couple of months later.
It’s a great opportunity to experience something that most youngsters don’t have the opportunity to take part in. if you’re not sure if it’s for you, come along for a few weeks and see what you think.
We look forward to seeing you there!

On a lovely sunny lunchtime in June the beaver section held its annual Wacky Races and Picnic – an opportunity for the beavers and their families from across the district to get together for some fun and to help the community by raising funds for the district charity – PICU.
44 young people from 7 groups took the time to make their cars and race them. There were 7 categories of races for all ages. After the races the families had their picnics and the young people played games.
Thanks to the district beaver team for all your hard work planning and running the event, to all the families and leaders for attending and to the 13th Group for providing the refreshments.
You raised a massive £127.97p. Let’s hope we have more young people and all the groups taking part next year and we can raise even more money for charity.

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.
Thanks to all those who passed on gifts to John Stevens from Hampshire Hospital Scouting as well.
Very well received.

Congratulations to the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers for taking part in their section competitions over the last two weekends. I was pleased to be able to get to these events as DC.
- Beavers at Loggerheads
- Cubs at Davids Challenge
- Scouts at District Emlyn
I was really impressed with the way the teams at all three events showed teamwork and developed leadership in their challenges. With everyone having great fun along the way.
Thanks also to the leader teams in each section for their hard work in making these competitions happen.
It’s great to see the levels of challenge that go with the progression up through the sections.
Well done all who took part and thanks to all who supported these great events.

Did you know that last year (2016) saw the Beavers celebrating their 30th Birthday? Southampton City District spend the year having loads of fun – a few things they got up to included:
- Birthday party
- Trip to Gilwell Fun Days
- Completed the County 30 Challenges
- Campfire with Birthday cake
To finish the year we put all that fun in a Time Capsule and had it buried at Wilverley, our district campsite in the New Forest. Many thanks to the Network Scouts for the burying.

Joshua of the 13th Sea Scout Beaver colony has gained every badge available in Beaver scouting.
This is a wonderful achievement and Joshua has worked so hard.
Congratulations to him and I am sure he will now look forward to even more challenges once he starts in the Cub section.
