This year’s competition was attended by 14 Cubs.
They played to a really high standard and there were a couple of really thought provoking moves towards the end of games.
The Under 9 ½ Winner was James from the 22nd.
The Over 9 ½ Winner was William from the 7th.
Congratulations to the Winning boys and everyone who took part on a very high standard of concentration and play.

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!

It’s been a busy Summer, with many of our young people attending various camps across the country. Here’s a round up of what happened while school was out for summer!
This year, the scout troop made their way to Chelwood near Bath for a week of activities including caving, cycling around the canels and kayaking on the river Avon – Including operating the locks
Rather than rely on adults to get them to camp. The 9th Scouts made their own way from Southampton to Brownsea Island (Home of the first scout camp). Find out more about their adventure below:

The 13th Group held their Summer camp locally at our district camp site in the New Forest. There was still plenty of water, even on dry land.

This is the Cubs 6ers Camp for 2018 at Wilverley Camp Site.
Our theme was: I’m a Cub get Me Out of Here.
We had a fun camping weekend with Friday night’s wide game being challenges to earn Dingo Dollars to buy doughnuts from Kiosk Chil’s Outback Shack.
Saturday Competition Day was full of Jungle themed challenging activities, run by the fantastically talented Pack Leaders.
(Unfortunately, apologies to those whos base footage has not appeared on this video the Go Pro had a glitch)
Sunday was the Cub Cyclone slip and slide, which was thoroughly enjoyed by the Cubs and Leaders, especially Ollie who got Jungle slimmed!
Thank You to all for a fabulous weekend.

A special thank you to Shaun and Ant for a great event.

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.
