1st Fenstanton & Hilton Scout Group

Big Breakfast 9th June

Thanks to the hard work of all those involved, and the generosity of our many customers, we raised a brilliant 425.

Scout Troop expedition to Norway

From the 7th to the 17th July 2007 (and yes, the schools have agreed we can take them!) almost our entire Scout Troop (so 27 of them), 5 of our Young Leaders and 6 adults are off to Norway for an adventure of a lifetime.

HYA 2007 is the name of the camp we have been invited to attend. It is the first joint camp of the relatively newly formed Oslo region of Scout Groups, to which our friends belong. The theme for the whole camp is "adventure" and in total they expect around 500 Scouts, of which we will be the only ones not from Norway. Our hosts will be providing tents called "lavu" (like a giant tepee) for the Scouts to sleep in. Much of the island is a nature reserve so there are no plumbed toilets or hot showers. For the last few days we will be the guests of our Norwegian friends in their own homes (complete with all our dirty washing!)

1st August 2007 Cromwell District Sunrise Celebrations

At 8.00am on Wednesday 1st August 2007 all Members of the Scout Association around the world are being asked to renew their Promise to celebrate the Centenary of Scouting. As the name suggests it is the dawn of a new Century for Scouting around the world. It celebrates the start of the first experimental camp at Brownsea Island in 1907 by Robert Baden-Powell.

This is a unique opportunity for all Scouts to renew their Promise, reflect on their scouting experiences and look to the future. With 28 million Scouts taking part it will be the most significant expression of peace and unity the world will have ever seen.

The event is then followed by a fantastic morning of fun (with a closing ceremony at 12.30pm) for all ages and is open to all current AND former members of Scouting to bring their family along. So if you, or someone in your family, has ever been a Beaver, Cub, Scout, Explorer or scouting adult then why not come and join the celebrations? After all, not even the youngest Beaver Scout is likely to be around to celebrate the next Centenary so Cromwell District is out to party like they have never partied before
