The cars will then be judged and raced at our AGM on Saturday 18th June. Please come along and support this event. Rolls Royce will also be bringing a car along to show.

Please can you make a cake to bring along and share?

We are also looking for a couple of parents to join our Executive Committee. The committee meets approximately 4 times a year and manages how the group is run and how the finances are spent.

Cobnor Camp 2016

Over 80 members of the Group joined us at Cobnor Activity Centre, Chidham between 29th May and 2nd June for our Circus themed camp. With Beavers camping one night, Cubs for 3 nights and Scouts for 4 nights.

A fantastic time was had by all, despite the challenging weather! As a result of high winds the Cubs and Scouts were unable to undertake the water activities as planned, alternatives were quickly provided by the Cobnor team instead.

So many activities were enjoyed over the course of camp, far too many to mention here!

JOTT 2016

65 beavers, cubs, scouts, leaders and parents joined us for this year’s Jamboree On The Trail (JOTT) Hike, starting and ending in Burpham.

With an option of two routes, most of the group embarked on a 8.3 mile hike from Burpham north to the South Downs Walk, climbing up to the triangulation point at 193 metres and back. Those with shorter legs walked 5 ish miles, looking out for geocaches along the way.

With the weather on our side, we all had a fantastic time.

St George’s Day 2016

St G Day coverOver 100 members of the Group joined together with approximately 700 other Scouts for across Arundel & Littlehampton Scout District for this years St George’s Day service and parade in Arundel.

As ‘Duty’ Group, 1st Barnham led the parade with Scouts and Cubs forming the main colour party, followed by our fantastic St George and his tamed dragon. Once inside Arundel Cathedral our focus turned to coordinating the service and our ‘100 years of Cub Scouts’ performance.

The day was a fantastic success, a massive thank you to everybody who helped – whether it was making cakes, serving refreshments, marshalling, moving chairs, transporting equipment, making props, carrying props or reading in the service.

We’ve received lots of great feedback from other groups and the invited guests. So well done to you all!

Arundel & Littlehampton District Scout Carol Service

The District band played a selection of tunes before and after the service helping us all get into the Christmas spirit.

Dragon Boating

Well done to our Dragon Boating team – we raised £635. Unfortunately we were beaten by a dragon’s whisker (0.5 of a second) this year, but we were definitely the loudest team on the tow path!
