Scout hike

Over the weekend, four of our scouts hiked over 30km as a team, plotting their own route and hiking it quickly without getting lost. The weekend included setting up their own camp and doing their own catering as a team. This was done as a  part of the Woking District Lightweight competition, around the Petersfield area. Below is a picture of them at camp in between the two days.

Annual Quiz Night

 

Another fantastic annual quiz was held at the Brookwood Memorial Hall on Saturday 10th March 2018 with over 80 people taking part, raising funds for the 1st Brookwood Group. Many thanks to everyone that came along and to those that helped organise and deliver a great evening. Congratulations to the winning team. We look forward to next year’s event.

 

Christmas Tree collections

On Sunday 7th January, a group of Cubs and Scouts from the 1st Brookwood Group collected approximately 70 Christmas trees from residents in Brookwood and Sheets Heath. The trees were then transported to a local collection site. Residents made donations to the group and the initiative raised £567.75 including gift aid to be reclaimed.This year half of the money raised is going to help with fundraising for Woking District Scouts attending the World Jamboree 2019. The collection teams on Sunday were hugely boosted by these Scouts, their parents and other District volunteers. The group would like to thank all the local residents who supported this scheme.

 

Carol Singing at Brookwood Station

Commuters at Brookwood Station were entertained by the 1st Brookwood Group on Friday 15th December when our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sang Christmas carols and handed out mince pies during the evening rush hour. A collection was held for Woking Hospice and we are delighted to announce that a total of £261 was raised on the night from the donations. A huge thank you to everyone that took part, including a number of parents and leaders and thanks also to the local community for their generosity.

Remembrance Day Service

On Sunday 12th November 2017, the 1st Brookwood Group joined members of the armed forces and the Police at a moving Remembrance Day service at Brookwood Cemetary. Each of the 3 sections of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts was well attended despite the cold weather.

 

‘Chief Scout Gold’ awarded

In November two of our scouts did their final presentation to the rest of the scouts, leaders and parents. They were then presented with the top Scout badge, the Chief Scout Gold, by the Woking District Commissioner, Liz Pocknell.
