Thank You

This Founder’s Day we’re saying a huge Thank You to our wonderful team of volunteers. It’s not been an easy year, but together they’ve gone the extra mile to adapt how we deliver Scouting and kept on being super awesome. And to our young people, Thank You for sticking with us. You’ve been so patient as we work out together how best to continue having fun as we Scout online.

Thank You

Note activities completed for this challenge can also be used for the ‘Great Indoors staged activity badge‘ and other core badges. Contact your child’s section leader if you have any questions.


Scouting from home

While face-to-face Scouting is suspended due to the coronavirus, we will be sharing a range of suggested activities for our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to give a go at home. So to avoid hearing ‘I’m bored’ every 30 seconds, encourage your child to learn new skills and have some fun in #TheGreatIndoors.

Parents of 1st Barnham Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, keep an eye on your emails or head over to our Scouting from home pages.


We’re banking on you!

We're banking on you. Volunteer treasurer advert

Could you be our next volunteer treasurer?
Ideally you’ll have some book keeping experience, however our current treasurer will show you the ropes and ensure a smooth hand over.
I’ll need 2 or 3 hours per week to undertake admin from home, respond to emails and process payment. Plus occasional trips to the bank and 3 or 4 evening committee meetings per year.

Chichester Dragon Boat Challenge 2019

Back again to defend our title!
With 1st Westbourne Scouts and 12th Chichester Scouts providing excellent competition in today’s Chichester Rotary Dragon Boat (Youth) Challenge.

After the heats, 12th Chichester and 1st Barnham had the two fastest times and so went through to battle it out in the final. After a very tight race and with less than half a second between them, 1st Barnham did it, retaining the winning title for another year. You can view all the scoreboard resultshere.

The challenge is not just about a fun day out, it’s a fundraising event for CancerWise and charities supported by the Rotary Club of Chichester Priory. We are proud to say that this year our Scouts raised a total £390 in sponsorship.
