County Camp


We hope that everybody enjoyed County Camp. We think all agreed that it was a very successful camp and one that all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Leaders and helpers will remember for many years.
















We would like to thank all that helped with the planning, setting up, running and clearing up for camp. We could not do it with out you!! A special thanks must go to our catering crew, who did a fantastic job feeding nearly a hundred hungry mouths all weekend. Every meal was perfectly cooked, and ready at exactly the right time. We all ate very well indeed! A big thank you to Annie, Stuart, Mark, Ted, Janice and Ray – THANKS!!!

Thanks also to our parent helpers – many of who helped run activities on Saturday and Sunday.
















The weather was largely kind to us, except for a wet Monday morning (which was just perfect for packing up!!). Consequently we have been left with a number of wet and muddy tents, and have had to leave the marquees pitched on site. Therefore there will be no Scout meeting on Wednesday night this week, as we have a lot of equipment to sort out. If any of our older Scouts and Explorers are available to help their help would be very much appreciated.

We are looking for volunteers to write a brief report for the newsletter / website. If you have any thoughts, memories, comments, photos etc – please email us.




Don't you just love Explorers



















This one amused me….. Queue for grub!




Jumbo fun at the scouts’ tea party

Recent article from Leighton Buzzard Observer Online……
"ALL It took was a trunk call to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo and David R and Steven R from the 1st Linslade Scout Group were joining group leader Zita Pascoe for high tea in the elephant enclosure. The three are pictured with the zoo’s Asian elephant calf Euan under the watchful eye of his mum Azizah.
The photo was staged to publicise the forthcoming Scouts Centenary Jamboree at Hylands Park Estate, near Chelmsford in July and August, when Scouts from across Bedfordshire will be among those taking part.

Williamson tea makers, of the Townsend Industrial Estate in Houghton Regis, are supplying an English Tea House for the event in conjunction with Wedgewood china. The company’s logo is an Asian elephant."
