A couple of weeks ago a team of 6 Explorers and Network Scouts ventured up to Snowdonia for the weekend to climb some snow-capped peaks. The scenery was breath-taking, made all the better with our accommodation. A cosy cottage in the middle of nowhere without electricity. Luckily there was a log fire to keep us warm after a chilly hike in the mountains.
It was an unforgettable weekend. Thank you so much to Ian Rutherford for organising the trip. Thanks also go to Cantell School for their generous rental of their mini-bus.

You’ve got to be tough to get through a weekend in Snowdonia! Scouts, Explorers and Network members have just returned from an adventurous trip reaching the peaks of North Wales. Saturday’s mist, rain and wind didn’t stop our teams reaching the summits of Snowdon and Tryfan. By Sunday the weather eased, rewarding us with some stunning views. Well done to everyone who attended, it’s a big achievement.

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.
