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.

Dragon Boat Challenge 2016

The Scouts had a great time today competing in the Chichester Rotary Dragon Boat Challenge and all to help raise funds for local charities.

As the only ‘Young Dragon’ team entered this year, all races were against an adult team. Our team did a great job, winning two races and losing another by a Dragon’s whisker!

Check out the team in action in our photo gallery (which includes a video too!)

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. If you are interested in joining us, please speak to either Mark Guy or Nicky Poulter. Details about being an Executive Committee member can be found here.
