Our ADC Activities has been working hard in the background to improve the District’s number of Activity Permits, and is constantly updating the Activities part of this website.
Keep coming back and having a look at these pages as the information changes often.
The latest change was to the Activity Permits information, including some details on how you can complete some online training getting ready for Spring and Summer 2014.
You will have seen on the news the dreadful scenes from the Philippines.
On Friday, Typhoon Haiyan made landfall, causing widespread devastation.
This is the largest tropical storm on record and it’s feared that more than 10,000 people have died, that more than 600,000 people have been displaced from their homes and that over 9 million people have been affected.
We are waiting to hear from WOSM what the impact has been on our Scouting friends in the Boy Scouts of the Philippines.
You may wish to talk about the Typhoon and the impact that this has had on the people of the Philippines with young people from your Group. To help you, there are a number of related resources available for you on the Scout Association website: visit scouts.org.uk/pol and search for “shelterbox”. Undoubtedly many of you are wanting to support the efforts of the various relief agencies working in the region – if you are moved to make a personal financial contribution then please consider doing so via the Disasters Emergency Committee website dec.org.uk, or via our partner ShelterBox
With best wishes,
UK International Commissioner
Are you going to be aged 15-18 by 20th July 2015 (that’s 13-16 years old this year)?
Fancy taking part in an International Expedition to East Africa?
Then Hampshire Scouts are looking for you…
It’s been quiet over the Summer as hopefully you, Ann and myself have been gladding around doing non training type stuff however it’s time to get back and complete some of your Leader training.
For the EXISTING Young Leaders we are planning the following sessions. All are Wednesday nights at the 4th Eastleigh Scout Headquarters in Southampton road. 19:55 until 21:30
- 6th November Module F – ‘Special People’ in other words how you can think about each of your Beavers, Cubs as individuals.
- 27th November Module G – Programme Plans - Speaks for itself but believe it or not there is a objective in the program.
For NEW young Leaders, on your first visit we will do Module A – This is the compulsory Module which you must do shortly after starting as a Young leader.
The target is to do Module A on the 6th November so please make an effort to attend. The module is always better when there are more New Young Leaders there.
Leaders – I don’t have emails for all the New Young Leaders – Could you ensure that they get this information please
Do you find Wednesdays had to get to? There is an alternative to the Eastleigh District Young leader training provided by the County Explorer Scout Team . The next Weekend training which covers a large number of the modules is Scheduled for 7-9th March 2014 in Tadley. If this is more convenient for you and you would like to go let me know and I will get you the registration details.
Are You up for a serious Walking Challenge? If you are read on :- .
