We are the 1st Brookwood Scouts Cubs and Beavers group. We meet on a Friday evening at Brookwood, in the district of Woking.
Our members take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, visits, community events, good turns, map reading, camp cooking and first aid along with plenty of outdoor activities. Parents tell us their children benefit hugely from the adventures, fun and friendships they experience. It can help develop social skills and independence, and give them access to some amazing and memorable opportunities.
They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It’s a real adventure for them.
If you would like to join us please go to our contact us page, we would love to hear from you.
Congratulations to the Green Six who won this year’s keenly contested Annual Pack Quiz. The Cubs answered 6 rounds covering such topics as map reading symbols, film music (and villain) identification, books, general knowledge and geography. In closely run finish, the Greeny Greens played their Joker at the closing stages to finish just 1 point ahead of the Red Doors, with the Purple Brains pipping the Yellow Giraffes for third place. Winners’ certificates and treats all round closed off the evening along with some energy expending games. Well done all!
Last Friday evening the Beavers had a fantastic time outside the hall toasting marshmallows on a camp fire and drinking hot chocolate. They had fun practising putting up tents in preparation for the various camps they will go on throughout their scouting experience. It’s fair to say there was plenty of running around and lots of excitement and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
On Sunday 23rd April, a vast contingent from the 1st Brookwood Group took part in the St George’s Day parade at Woking Football Club. It was a wonderful afternoon with around 300 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers in total from a range of local groups taking part in the celebration.
The 18-25 year old Explorers performed the George and the Dragon story as a “rock opera” which was brilliant. The various categories of Scouts then took part in an adapted “cat and mouse” game in which youngsters dressed as St George ran after “dragons” who were carrying banners with Scouts promises. Once they had caught the dragons and retrieved the banners, the St Georges handed them to the Scout leaders and the Scouts all renewed their promises – a key part of the themes of the St George’s Day celebrations.
The 1st Brookwood Group was well supported by family and friends sitting in the stand cheering them on, especially during the Samba dance led by the Explorers. The event concluded with the youngsters each receiving a well deserved and much appreciated doughnut. Liz Pocknell, District Commissioner said “It was joyful – a true celebration. I am proud to lead such a positive group of people who achieve so much”.
