Welcome to news from the official Fenstanton community website


1st Fenstanton & Hilton Scout Group - News

Posted: 14/09/2008



Like all voluntary organisations we are constantly raising money so we’d like to pass on grateful thanks to both the Hilton Town Charity and the Fenstanton & Hilton Mens Christian Fellowship for their recent kind donations.

Saturday 13th December is another date for your diaries please! We will be having our annual Christmas Post stall at the Clock Tower that morning to raise funds. As always the youngsters will be selling stamps, bacon rolls, home made cakes and running a tombola. (more details to follow)

Volunteers to work with photographs please

We have unearthed several boxes of photos of youngsters in our Group from the 1970s to date. Being relative newcomers we have no idea who most of the people are! Is there anyone out there who would be willing to put them into some sort of useful albums or folders, and perhaps even try finding out names and dates? Is there anyone else who would be able to scan some or all so we can use on our web site and store on DVD? We would be very grateful if you could support your local Scout Group in this “one off” project 

Please will you help by continuing the circle?

“Because you said 'yes'”:

 a young person will feel the pride of being someone special as they carefully put on their uniform for the very first time.
 a young person can move to a new town or village anywhere in the world and have "instant friendships" with people they might never have met.
 parents will experience that special pride when they listen to their child say the Promise for the first time.
 bright eyes will become a little brighter with excitement as the kindling finally catches on the first campfire.
 nervous giggles will emit from tents as they try to fall asleep on their first night of camp.
 the community, and the world will be richer because a child has learned the importance of caring for their environment, and the warm feeling that comes from giving service to someone less fortunate than themselves.
 a parent will find a camp blanket carefully tucked away in a drawer as their child packs to leave home for their first adventures as a young adult.
 a young adult will contact the Scouts one day and say, "I had so much fun when I was a Scout, I'd like to try being a Leader."
 And the circle will continue...because you said, "YES"

With 85 children and a very long waiting list we’d love to hear from you. After all many of us who took part in
activities like Brownies or Cubs when we were young only had that opportunity because, back then, someone else said “yes” 
