Congratulations to the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers for taking part in their section competitions over the last two weekends. I was pleased to be able to get to these events as DC.
- Beavers at Loggerheads
- Cubs at Davids Challenge
- Scouts at District Emlyn
I was really impressed with the way the teams at all three events showed teamwork and developed leadership in their challenges. With everyone having great fun along the way.
Thanks also to the leader teams in each section for their hard work in making these competitions happen.
It’s great to see the levels of challenge that go with the progression up through the sections.
Well done all who took part and thanks to all who supported these great events.

Over 120 cubs and 50 leaders travelled to Gilwell Park on the weekend of the 10th September to celebrate 100 years of cub scouting with a Birthday Party and many adventurous activities like the 3G swing!
It was a real team effort with Network catering for us and Active Support helping with transport.
The cubs had an amazing time and we commemorated our visit by leaving a stone in the promise path for the cubs to find when they visit Gilwell in the future.

Last month The Scout Association announced that the number of young people in Scouting has grown every year for a decade. There is now a whopping 571,000 of us! A huge part of this success is down to the fact that more girls than ever before want to join the adventure too and are signing up in record numbers.
Recently BBC Radio 5Live interviewed some of our Cubs to find out why they enjoy scouting together.

Thank you to everyone in the district who assisted Active Support in selling poppies for the British Legion. Special thanks to my own members of Active Support, Cubs, Scouts and Leaders plus some non-uniform members, from the 7th, 13th and 26th groups for all the help and long hours spent selling.
I am pleased to announce we collected the marvellous sum of £4,256.82p. That is a magnificent effort that not only helped the British Legion in their work but showed to the public that we as a youth movement are willing to help others.
Well done and thank you

Our District has been invited by The Mayor of Southampton to attend the Remembrance Day Service, at The Cenotaph, on Sunday 8th November 2015.
It is hoped that we can make up a contingent comprising, a Beaver, a Cub and a Scout and Explorer and a Scouter from every group in the district. Also all Active Support and Network members are invited.
Our aim is to have a good smart contingent for the remembrance parade at the Cenotaph in West Park Southampton for this year’s Remembrance Service. Last year was a lovely event and it gave our young people a chance to show their respect and remembrance and it was particularly mentioned by those attending, including the Mayor, that it was lovely to see our youngsters taking part.
Of course if your group has already arranged to go to your local church that is fine I am just pleased that they are doing that. But for those groups that do not go to a local church we would like you to join us at the main Southampton Cenotaph.
We hope we will have at least 50 people attending. Even though I have said only one please do bring more if you wish to.
We will meet at 9.45am at Guildhall Square I will be there earlier, so please look out for me. You can park for free up to 12 noon on a Sunday at the West Park Car Park.
Please do make sure you are all in smart uniform please, polished shoes etc. I will have poppies to give you if you have not already purchased some.
The parade will be marching from Guildhall Square to the cenotaph and back to Guildhall square after the service so Parents please come and see the parade and pick up your children from guildhall square just before 12 noon.
If you could all please send me an email to say if you are coming or not I would be grateful.
