‘Scouting has given me a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities and things that people who are not in Scouts don’t get to do. It’s about having fun with good friends.’
Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement. From the first experimental camp for 20 boys in 1907, the movement now has an estimated 28 million members worldwide, and in the UK alone there are over 499,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting. An increase in adult volunteers means that more and more young people are now able to take part in their own big adventure.
Recent events have included:
- Hinckley District Shooting competition
- A week’s camp at Blackwell Adventure (thanks to Fionna, John & Allan for giving up a week of your time!),
- Doing exceptionally well in the Hinckley Soapbox Derby (Junior Class 1st, 3rd & Fastest single Time). We got a mention in the Hinckley Times and the Hinckley & Bosworth Bulletin too!
Stoke Golding Scouts meet on a Thursday from 7:00 to 9:00pm in Stoke Golding Village Hall, Hall Drive CV13 6EA
