iScout Eastleigh – postponed

Having had a final planning meeting about this weekends event, the team have taken the difficult decision to postpone the event.

Given the number of people who told us they could attend, the organising team felt that the event would not have delivered the level of quality that you all deserve.

We will now be looking at other options to give you an event later in the Spring.

The team are keen to hear from you if you have any ideas on the kind of event you would like, and the information you would like to find out.

You can email John Mabb, District Chairman or David Patrick, webmaster with your views or comments.

Fire and Ice…

No, not the next set of episodes of Game of Thrones, but the name of this year’s winter camp at Tolmers Scout Activity Centre in Hertfordshire, where Scouts from the 4th Eastleigh went for their Winter Camp.

Phil, their Scout Leader, said “This weekend 4th Eastleigh Scouts headed off to Hertfordshire to join up with Tolmers Fire and Ice 2015 for our Winter Camp.  Over the weekend we had snow, freezing temperatures and thick mud but none of this stopped the Scouts from enjoying themselves!!  There were lots of activities to keep them occupied throughout the weekend and their favourite activities were Lazer Tag in the woods and the various climbing towers where even in January we had palm trees!!

This is an annual camp we would recommend to all Scouts, just be prepared to hose all the kit down afterwards!!  The snow definitely added to the excitement, but I can’t promise they will have that every year!”

Here are a few pictures from the weekend…
