Black Ops III – “Do your duty”

Our scout sections (Engima, Wibbles and Viernes) spent the weekend on a back to basics camp. We had a semi-dedicated media bod on site, so we were able to bring you several posts sharing video and photos from the weekend. Hit the links to see more – great Explorer zombies!

Reminder: Remembrance Sunday

Next Sunday (12th Nov) will be Remembrance Sunday – it is one of the few times in the year where we request the young people to give something to their local community. It is very important that everyone does their utmost to attend. Please follow the below link for full details/times and arrangements.

Thank you to our new volunteers

A big thank you to those who responded to our plea for more volunteers. We’ve had some lovely people already start to support the Group; some beginning their volunteer journey, others picking up where they’d left off previously. Every little bit of time given, really does help – please follow the below link to see how you too could make a difference in young people’s lives.
