Fundraising at Sutton United FC, Saturday 27th March

After the Beavers spent the morning gaining their Experimenters badge, the Cubs went to Sutton United Football Club to watch their match against Hendon, and to help raise funds for our group. It was a good afternoon, with the home side winning 3-1, and plenty of loose change being donated to 1st Beddington. Many thanks to Sutton United for hosting us, to the fans for their generosity, and to all the Cubs/Scout who came along to help!

Day trip to France 2010

We had a action-packed fun day out on our day trip to Boulogne. We boarded the eurotunnel at Folkestone at half past seven in the morning, and we spent the morning walking around the old town of Boulogne, buying sweets from traditional French shops, and visiting the 13th century castle, where we invested our newest cub. We walked down through the town to the seafront and had lunch on the grass, where we also sang happy birthday to one of our scouts. In the afternoon we headed for Nausicaa sea-life centre where we saw sharks, sea-lions, mantle rays and clownfish to name but a few, before heading back to the UK and playing duck, duck, goose aboard the eurotunnel. Many thanks to all the cubs and scouts who went and displayed a fantastic image of 1st Beddington, and indeed, The Scout Association. Thanks must also be given to all those leaders who went and made the day a complete success, it could not have been done without them!

This trip was such an enjoyable experience for all our young members, and we shall be returning in 2012, so watch this space for more news!

We have a video below and a few photos here.





AGM 2011

A good time was had by all that attended our AGM this year.  Our AGM was wrapped in to a fun day and BBQ.  The event started with a scavenger hunt around Beddington Park.  We returned to the hall and the grown ups joined in the fun of the AGM whilst the younger people had some fun outside in the glorious sunshine.  The grown ups emerged from the serious business of the AGM where they learned all about the Group, how the money goes, what the various sections do, the numerous thank you’s that need to be said (because the group could not run without the many volunteers that help) and a shortish address from our District commissioner (Chris Williams).  The BBQ food was just right and the rest of the afternoon was spent enjoying the food and relaxed atmosphere.  There are a few photos in our galleries here, curtsey of Tom.

May Cub camp / Group 90th Birthday Fun Day

This weekend the cubs went to Fryland’s Wood Campsite.

Whilst away, they went on a hike, went rock climbing, fire-lighting and tracking, plus the usual camp fire and plenty of time for games and exploring!

On the Saturday we were joined by Beavers, Scouts, friends and family for a ‘Fun Day’. This was a chance for the whole group to celebrate 90 years of 1st Beddington, and for parents to see (and try!) some of the things we get up to.

On offer was rock climbing, archery, rifle shooting, ‘earthball’ and a trail for everyone to try, which was followed by a BBQ and raffle, and we also had (a quick) AGM.
