Virtual meetings to the rescue!

Posted on March 21st, 2020 by Sam Raby

It’s sad but its true! Scout meetings face to face have been suspended until further notice. But that isn’t going to stop us…. Oh No! We have taken to video conferencing to host our meetings and so far it has been successful.

We did a round the house scavenger hunt with our beavers.


We met with the cubs and did a Q&A session on the Emergency First Aid badge.

And we took to https://skribbl.io/ with the scouts.

Don’t forget there is loads you can do at home. Simply log into OSM and have a look at your badges. You can upload your evidence right there as well. Check out our how to video:

We have also put some workbooks online for you to have a look at:

The 14th are at the Panto!….” Oh no they’re not!”

Posted on January 5th, 2019 by Sam Raby

Tonight more than 60 members, leaders, parents and friends, piled onto a bus and made their way to the Kenneth Moore Theatre to enjoy this year’s panto, Aladdin.

The group thoroughly enjoyed themselves, especially our oldest leader, Bob, who found himself overwhelmed with audience participation.

We would like to thank all of the staff, performers and crew at the Kenneth Moore Theatre for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. They even mentioned and thanked the leaders for organising such a large group.

A “Fun Day” at Fundays 2018

Posted on June 10th, 2018 by Sam Raby

There is no denying that yesterday was a great day for getting out in the sun and trying something new. That was exactly the plan for our beavers and cubs.

A quick train ride and a walk and we were at Fundays at Gilwell park. a massive outdoor activity day for beavers and cubs. with so many activities they had very little time to stop and have lunch!

Check out how they got on :

We even got a group shot with the new signage for the hall! look out for it soon!

Beavers practicing to break Enigma… and next weeks plans!

Posted on January 23rd, 2018 by Chris Raby

Last week started a return to Badge work and fun. We tried to de-code a Morse code message with some interesting results. Some of the Beavers were amazing, but in the end I think they all managed to de-code our message. They were all asked to write their names in Morse code for this week. Let’s see how that goes, and this week we will be decorating biscuits with the Scottish flag to celebrate Burns Night, and talking about Robby Burns we were thinking about giving the Beavers some Haggis but I think we will give that a miss.

Can you work out who left this message? Click here for “Morse” Info

Centenary Camp @ Downe Scout Adventures!

Posted on September 7th, 2017 by Sam Raby

14th Walthamstow – Centenary Camp @ Downe Scout Adventures

This year marks the 100th year of the group. From 1917 to 2017 we have been giving young people the opportunity to gain key life skills, to try new things, to learn something new and much more.

To celibate, we took the group to Downe Scout adventures in Kent for the bank holiday weekend.

The group had a fantastic time and took part in, Crate Stacking, Archery & Grass Sledging,

The group also did a bit of DIY and took home there very own bird boxes! find out more about that in the coming months.

The Beavers came up for the main part of the weekend, and with the gang all there we took a trip down into Chislehurst Caves!

To top off the sunny bank holiday monday, the cubs and scouts took part in the classic camp water fight.

Personally….. what better way to mark your 100th year! Check out what the group got up to below.
