Poppy Appeal Collections 2018

The Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers are all invited to come along to sell poppies and help raise as much money as possible for this fantastic cause!

Kent Scouts Big Cardboard Sleep Out

On 12th October, over 3,000 Cubs, Scouts and Explorers will raise funds for Porchlight by getting sponsored to spend a night outside in cardboard boxes.  The young people taking part hope to raise a significant amount for Porchlight’s work helping rough sleepers and vulnerable people across the county. ‘Knot’ bad!

Head over to your My.SCOUT page and update your consent to get the great pics back. Some useful documents to do with data protection, explaining what we […]

Once Floor unto the breach, dear friends, once Floor

(sorry for the terrible pun!) Thank you National Lottery players We needed a new floor. Unlike the last four times, we’re not just talking about a sand and paint, but a complete replacement of the flooring surface. I’m very pleased to be able to tell you that we were successful with our funding application from the Big Lottery Fund to fully replace the main hall floor. It’s all happening in October and should be ready for our first meetings back after the hols. Thanks National Lottery and National Lottery players!
