Some of our "big achievers" were rewarded with the opportunity to attend the County Land & Water Activity Day at Luton Hoo on Saturday. They were lucky enough to meet the Chief Scout - Bear Grylls on a very wet and windy day, as part of his whistle stop "Bear in the Air" tour of the Eastern Region. The weather meant Bear was in car rather than the air, as the helicopter was grounded - which shortened his time at the event, however all participants got to see him. The Scouts took part in a number of land activities, fun and games, fire lighting, followed by some time on the water sailing and canoeing.

Following a six week kayaking training course at Willen lake run by our leaders last term, eight Linslade Scouts extended their skills in open canoes on the Grand Union Canal. The trip last Saturday covered 5 miles of paddling with a bacon roll cook up at lunchtime. For most, this was their first experience in open canoes, and all paddlers did very well.
Were you a Scout at 1st Linslade in the 50's or 60's?.....

We have been contacted by an ex 1st Linslade Rover Scout who was in the troop from 1956 through to 1964, who has recently had a reunion with 4 other Scouts of the time. They are keen to meet up with other old Scouts and perhap have a regular annual get together. Unfortunately we don't have any surviving records from this period.
Were you a Scout at 1st Linslade in the 40's, 50's, 60's or 70's? If so, we would like to hear from you and put you in touch.
We have records in the form of a troop log which starts March 15th 1921 when the troop started. There are hand written entries and a few photographs through to 1948. It would be great to fill in some of the more recent history.
We hope to hear from you - get in touch through the "contact us" page.
