Latest news from the 3rd Chieveley Scout Group

Throughout the Autumn and Winter months the 3rd Chieveley Cubs and Beavers have continued to take part in an extensive programme of fun and engaging activities, all taking place in the open air and in a COVID safe manner. Both sections have enjoyed a number of night hikes and challenges, along with camp fires, den building, space sessions and daytime bike rides. They have also continued to learn new life skills and to share their hobbies. On the rare occasion that the weather drove the Beavers inside they had an interactive online session learning to make cakes in a mug, whilst the Cubs took part in the national RSPB Birdwatch.

We would like to thank Chieveley Primary School for their continued support of the Cubs and Beavers, and for providing us with a space to meet, when we are not out and about. An extra special thanks must also go to our fantastic team of volunteer leaders, as without them none of the activities would be possible. 

As we now look forward to Spring, the young people will be getting involved in a range of community activities including a litter pick around Chieveley, St. George’s Day celebrations, and the village plans for The Queen’s  Platinum Jubilee. We are also really excited about our upcoming Spring Camp.

Many of the 3rd Chieveley Cubs have now reached the stage where they are ready to move up to Scouts. With such high demand for Scout places across the District, and because we want to support our Cubs in their continued journey through Scouting, plans are progressing to trial a 3rd Chieveley Scout Troop during the Summer term. In order to succeed, we are looking for more adult volunteers – if you would like to hear more or to get involved, please get in touch. 

If you would like to find out more about the 3rd Chieveley Group and the activities we have been doing, please visit our newly launched pageon the MyChieveley website or contact our Group Scout Leader, Sarah Dunnett (gsl.chieveley@tacehamhundred.org.uk).
