Can you build a den?

can-you-build-a-denBuilding dens is a real treat when you are a child, and even more fun when you are an adult!
We need you to come along to Beavers or Cubs and support our young people.
Not just to build dens, but help do map work, craft, walking, camping and make stuff from bits of wood (we call that pioneering).
What we need is an extra pair of hands to help the leaders provide these fantastic activities.

St George’s Day 2017

640 members of the Arundel & Littlehampton Scout District, including 76 members of 1st Barnham, paraded through Arundel and up to the Cathedral for the annual St George’s Day celebration on Sunday 23rd April 2017. The parade was led by the District Scout Band and the District standards.

This year 1st East Preston had the task of organising the service for members, invited Mayors, Chairmen and Councillors together with past leaders and “friends” of the Scout District. During the service members of Scouting past and present renewed their Scouting Promise. The service was conducted jointly between Bishop Richard Moth, Canon Tim Madeley of the Cathedral and Rev.

After the service, District Commissioner, Mark Hewson, took the salute as the whole District marched past. Following the parade a leader’s afternoon tea was held at the Arundel Football Club which was organised by 1st East Preston Scout Group.
