Each Sunday, we take a look back of our week of Scouting. Recapping and linking back to posts of the week. Alongside this, we’ll share some additional content that didn’t necessarily make it in the initial cut.
Raptors visited JOTA / JOTI
Cubs from our Raptors pack went to Hesley Wood for this year’s Jamboree on the Air (and Jamboree on the Internet). In addition, they got to make use of some of the great activities on site.
Aviva Community Funding opened
We’ve been selected to compete for funding from the Aviva Community funding. Your votes make a big difference in helping us secure monies that will go towards climbing and archery equipment.
It’ll be Remembrance Sunday again before we know it. Bruce reminded us all that Penistone will, once again, turn out in force for the parade and subsequent service. (Millstones and Raptors have a separate event)

Group web store launched
To make buying uniform and other group essentials, we launched our web store. Later in the year we will see some specific group branded apparel and add online payments for events.

We celebrated our successes at Barnsley District Awards
A phenomenal number of our young people were recognised for their achievements at the District Awards evening.
Many pumpkins were carved
In the run-up to Halloween, we saw many sections carving pumpkins and embracing their creative sides.
Lego camp built some great memories
Our cub sections headed down the country for a packed weekend of activities (Saturday) and a day at Legoland (Sunday).

We asked you for help
Our group has doubled in size in the last three years. We still have over 200 people on the waiting list. That’s a heck of a lot of young people we aren’t able to take in. With your help volunteering, we can make those children’s hope of getting a place a reality more quickly.
Here’s a selection of photos that were posted to our Facebook page, but didn’t necessarily make it to the group website.
