Welcome to the Scout Page.
1st Blisworth Scouts meet on a Monday night 7:15 - 8:45pm at our community Scout hall (to get to the hall, follow the track up opposite the school, go to the end and there should be an open gate, if not, wait to a leader arrive! Then keep following the track around and you will see the hall)
What a year that was…just see what we got up to!
Scouts have 24 young people and 9 Leaders/Young Leaders including 1 parent helper.
Some of the AMAZING activities we have done include:
White Water Tubing at the Nene Valley Centre; a Bivi Camp at Spotley where we slept in homemade shelters and cooked in “different ways”!; Our annual summer camp was at Youlbury with their excellent facilities; We held a Challenge Weekend Expedition at Cosgrove: we competed London Monopoly (!) with the Tunnel Rats (Blisworths Explorers group); We went Bowling with a hike; Proudly came 2nd out of 15 teams at the County Backwoods Challenge Weekend; we completed Commonwealth Cooking; We had a great night where different exotic animals were bought in for us to hold; and we had a Treat night at Gallone's Ice Cream Parlour! And we presented three Chief Scout Gold Awards to three Scouts….. PHEW!!!!
In addition to all that Scouts also supported Blisworth's own events:
The stunning, funny and remarkably entertaining Scout Talent Show.
A very successful Bonfire Night which will be an annual event open to all villagers.
A Remembrance Sunday Parade at St John the Baptist Church
The Santa Sleigh walk round Blisworth fundraising for charity.
The Wild & Woolly raising much needed funds for 7 different charities.
The St George’s Day Parade linking up with Milton Malsor & Roade Scout Groups.
The Blisworth Canal Festival, running a Tombola, fund raising, litter picking, rubbish bin emptying, and guiding lost visitors.
