Trim Trail Challenge

This week our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Peregrine Explorers took on the Trim Trail Challenge at Murrell’s Field, Barnham.

This sponsored event consisting of ten obstacles; chin ups, rope climb, sit ups, stride jumps, balance beam, monkey bars, run and leap, step up bench, parallel bars and shuttle run. It was certainly a challenge, but great fun too! Check out the photo gallery below.

All proceeds from the event are supporting two Peregrine Explorer Scouts; Lottie and Josh (both previously 1st Barnham Scouts) to attend the 24th World Scout Jamboree in USA 2019. With part of their fees enabling Scouts from developing countries to attend the Jamboree.  

So far, the sponsorship raised from the Trim Trail totals £412 [Update 19/07/18: Total raised = £450], and with some sponsorship yeah to be received we hope to reach our goal of £500. A massive THANK YOU to all the sponsors and the beavers, cubs, scouts and explorers for taking on the challenge.

Angry Birds AGM

Today’s Angry Birds AGM was a flying success, even if we do say so ourselves.

What better way to liven up our Annual General Meeting, than make some modroc ‘angry birds’ (prepared during Beavers, Cubs and Scouts over the last two weeks), insert bird into a catapult and fire it at a wall of cardboard boxes! Watch the birdie fly in the slow motion video below.

JOTT Hike 2018

Despite the grey and drizzly weather, we had a fantastic 100 members and parents from 1st Barnham and 2nd Felpham participate in this afternoon’s  Jamboree on the Trail hike.

With the weather forecast not looking too great, everyone did the 7km circulate route from Whiteways car park, west along the South Down Way, then return to the start via the Monarch’s Way. 

 


Can you build a den?

can-you-build-a-den

Building 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.
Interested? Contact Mark  gsl@1stbarnhamscouts.org.uk
