Scouts Own 2019
To everyone who is part of the 8th Hornchurch Scout Group Family
It was great to see so many Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Young Leaders, (old) Leaders and parents celebrate Baden Powell’s birthday at our recent annual Scouts Own. The weather beat us for the parade part but Cub Leader Jack gave us an excellent history of the 8th Hornchurch Scout Group and finished off with the ever popular quiz. We all learnt a lot more about the history of OUR Scout Group. It was great that we could finish the Service with a number of presentations to the victorious swimming gala team who between them won the Cub Trophy, won the Group Relay and won the Overall Cup – well done. We were also very pleased to welcome our District Commissioner, Debbie Carter, who presented the Group with a certificate signed by Bear Grylls celebrating the 8th as being the largest Scout Group out of some 620 Scout Groups in the London Region. Congratulations to all of the leaders, assistants and parent volunteers who give such great Scouting to all of our many members. If you want to get involved in the Scouting Adventure and join the fun please speak to your section leader or use the link on our website.
At the end of the Scouts Own we took a collection which raised £130 which has been donated to First Steps which is a charity for children with special needs and disabilities. More details at the attached link:
Thanks again to everyone for coming to our Scouts Own.
