Wishing all sections, our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Leaders, parents and helpers a wonderful Christmas and happy and healthy 2022!

1st Egham Scout Group host the Scout district night hike – November 2021

On a chilly Friday night in November, 1st Egham hosted the annual Runnymede District Scout night hike under the expert planning of Bagheera and Shere Khan. Scout groups from across the area converged on Coopers Hill for a 5 mile hike taking them down to the River Thames across Runnymede and through Englefield Green, with a few surprise activities on route. On completion everyone was treated to a well deserved hot chocolate / hot dog combo! Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all of the leaders and volunteer helpers who made it a memorable evening for Runnymede district scouts.

What a phenomenally good  District Scout Night Hike we’ve put on tonight – a most enormous thank you to Jenny Chapman & Dave, John & Connor, Mark Griffiths, Gavin McNair, Chris Boston (& Josh) Alan Robson, Charley & Andy W, Andy Sainsbury-Brown, Val Monk, Ron Allen, Tom Blackman, Alistair McCuaig, the Commander and Jon Young for your absolutely amazing help in making it all happen.

Also a very special mention and thank you to our younger helpers – Millie for assistance with the catering and our amazing casualties at the incident station – William W and Matthew R – you were all superstars.

We must also say an enormous thank you to our hosts, the fabulous people at Manorcroft United Junior Football Club.

And lastly, a very special call out to Phil Robson on devising and plotting a great route, getting all the materials prepared and ensuring it all went smoothly.

I hope that you’re all warmed up and on behalf of 1st Egham and all the Scouts who have participated (and hopefully  enjoyed tonight) – THANK YOU

Shere Khan, 1st Egham Group Scout Leader

Remembrance Sunday 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
