Another Great Family Camp PDF Print E-mail

FamilyCampLast weekend, Great Amwell enjoyed another very successful Family Camp at our excellent site in Ware. We made full use of the site and adjoining field for some Carry on Camping themed activities, from a water slide to food tasting, and crafting to cargo nets!

The photos are all now up in the gallery, under Group Photos, but of course you will need to be a registered site user to view them.

Well done to the WHOLE team, especially Julie and Bob!

Bears Beavers enjoy a trip to the Fire Station PDF Print E-mail

This week Great Amwell Bears Beavers enjoyed a visit to Ware Fire Station. We got the chance to try on uniforms and helmets, and have a look at some of the equipment fire officers use. But the best bit was having a go with the hoses and getting squirted with water! Take a look at our gallery for all the photos (you must be a registered user to access this).

Flexible volunteering - can you? PDF Print E-mail

HRHHRH The Duchess of Cambridge has become Scouting’s newest volunteer and will help at local cub packs and beaver colonies, Clarence House has announced.

The Duchess, who joins 66,000 girls and 40,000 female leaders in Scouting, will help out at groups close to where she lives. Her Royal Highness also hopes to help with activities in other parts of the United Kingdom as opportunity arises.

Flexible volunteering

The announcement comes as a great endorsement of Scouting’s commitment to allow adults to volunteer their time on a flexible basis. The Duchess will help run a variety of activities relevant to her skills and interests. This could include running games, teaching first aid or cooking on campfires.

Chief Scout Bear Grylls gave a delighted reaction to the news: ‘The Duchess has an incredibly busy life, which makes it all the more inspiring that she has chosen to volunteer alongside us. 

‘Over the last few years it has been our mission to make it easier for adults who volunteer with us to give as much or as little as they are able – it is how we change our society: many people doing a little bit.’
