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.
A huge thanks to all customers and members @coopuk for including us in their Local Community Fund. We are super pleased to announce that the £1,584.94 we have been awarded added to other funds received will allow us to proceed with purchasing new tents.
Tents are the starting point for an adventure and these new tents will enable our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to have loads of adventures for years to come. #TheCoopWay
Today we received two donations; £379.43 from DM Thomas Foundation for Young People and £209.53 from the Hilton Avisford Park Community Fund.
A big thank you from us all.
These donations, together with other donations recently received and a grant application we are waiting to hear the outcome of will be used to replace our six Vango tents ready for use by the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts this summer.
On Friday 16th December 2016, one hundred years to the day that Cubs officially started. Cubs from Barnham and Walberton Packs joined with Cubs from across Arundel & Littlehampton District at The Flying Fortress, Ford to celebrate the centenary birthday and renew their Cub Scout Promise.
Like all good parties there was cake, balloons and lots of fun to be had. At 19:16 the 134 Cubs lined up on the play equipment to renew their promise, which was led by Jill Gladman, Assistant County Commissioner for Cub Scouts. Watch the Cubs renew their promise below.
