1st Egham Christmas 2021 festivities

In December 1st Egham rounded off the year with a number of festive activities. From Fundraising, to Food Bank Shopping and treading the boards in the annual outdoor Nativity to Backwoods cooking for Scouts and Cubs, below are some images! Wishing all sections, our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Leaders, parents and helpers a wonderful Christmas and happy and healthy 2022!

Remembrance Sunday 2021

1st Egham Scout Group were proud to have all sections participate in the Remembrance Sunday parade and service at St John’s Church in Egham in November 2021.

Excellent parading by 1st Egham for Remembrance Sunday. Well done to all of the Beavers, Scouts, and the Leaders for their role in this fantastic community event.

1st Egham Scout Group share our favourite hikes for Magna Carta Day fundraising

It was great to take part in the Magna Carta Day fair which returned on Saturday 26th June 2021. The group had our usual pitch outside Timpson’s on the High Street (our thanks as ever to the Timpson’s staff for being great ‘neighbours’ for the day). This year, rather than sell edible fare, we opted to share some of our favourite Scout hikes and walks in Runnymede. Grateful thanks to all those who donated on the day and picked up booklets.

You can find a copy below. The file is ready for double sided printing (flip on short edge) then collate and fold and the pages will ‘magically’ be in the right order with the text aligning alongside each map! Please note disclaimers, enjoy and remember, in the great words of Sir Ranulph Fiennes, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate
clothing!”

The first ever, 1st Egham Camp is coming!

I am pleased to invite all of 1st Eghams Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to our first ever Group camp.
 
All the details are in the attached document, including the sign up forms and paperwork, and we’re hoping that, with your support and assistance over that weekend, it will be a success!
 
 
We need to know by Wednesday 20th September in order to be able to purchase sufficient food, so please bring the forms and monies along to Beavers in the Hall (Tuesday from 18:00 – 19:00) or drop them off at Shere Khan’s house (details can be supplied if you email me!).
 
If you’r able to assist over the weekend, please see which shifts you could help with here.
 
If you do have any questions before signing up, as usual, please do speak to one of the section leaders or myself and we’ll be only to happy to assist.

Wishing all our Scouts a SUPER SUMMER

Yes indeed, we’ve wrapped up Scouting for 1st Egham for the Summer break, but rest assured, the Leaders are not stopping for long! During the Summer, we’ll be planning our Autumn schedules, getting the cupboard organised (long overdue!) and generally making sure we’re ready to kick off again in September.

We’re intending to start meetings again week commencing September 8th 2014.

Hoping all our Scouts and their families have a truly enjoyable Summer and we look forward to hearing all about it when we return.

Ready, Steady, GO to the Magna Carta Day Fair

Preparations are in full swing for the 1st Egham (United Church of Egham) Scout Group stall at the Magna Carta Day fair in Egham High Street on Saturday 14th June 2014. A wide selection of hand made cakes and sweets will be available for purchase from members of the 1st Egham Beaver colony and Cub pack.

We remain optimistic for good weather, given the drenching we got at the Egham Christmas Fair!

Active Kids Vouchers

It’s time to start collecting again!

Last year, you managed to collect 5,874 vouchers, which was superb, but this year, we want EVEN MORE!

So, please tell your friends, neighbours, relatives and colleagues to collect the vouchers and then put them in the collecting box in the Church. (Please make sure it’s the one marked “1st Egham” – there’s more than 1 in the Church!)

It’s been quiet around here

But that doesn’t mean we’ve not been busy!

Firstly, we’ve been drying out from the Egham Christmas Fair, which was a great day for fund-raising and raising the profile of our group within the local community, We raised over £200 from all the cakes, sweets and goodies we had.

In addition to this, our Cub pack has been growing in numbers with new starters and several of our Beavers moving up, whilst our Beaver pack goes from strength to strength.
