Suspension of face to face Scouting
16/03/2020 By Glyn Pullen

With regret I have inform you that we have taken the decision to suspend all face to face Scouting in Petworth and Pulborough District with immediate effect and until further notice. This follows a national decision from Scout HQ.

St Georges Day has been cancelled and we will update you with regards to Petworth Park and the JOTT in the near future. 

We are looking at what can be done to provide remote Scouting opportunities and hope to have some ideas out soon.

Here is the link to the national announcement https://scouts-news.org.uk/31ME-10O0C-D76U42KAA5/cr.aspx

Stay safe and healthy

Hike to the moon raised over £700,000
18/04/2020 By Nick Layt

We want Scouts to go the extra mile too. Together, young people, volunteers, parents and carers are going to Hike to the Moon. If we all hike just one mile each – about 2,000 steps or 20 minutes walking on the spot – then together, we can complete the incredible 240,000 mile journey. To hit your one mile target, you can hike around your home or your garden (if you’ve got one) but please be safe and stick within government advice – you don’t need to leave your homes to be part of this. 

Update May2020

Back in April we told you about the national appeal to hike to the moon. Scout HQ has updated us on the money raised - Thanks to Scouts all over the UK, we’ve hiked not just the 240,000 miles to the moon but the incredible 440,000-mile journey to the moon and back! We’ve raised over £340,000, with another £32,000 raised through badge sales, and with the government matching the funds, we’ll contribute over £700,000 to BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief.

Well done to all that took part

Keep your kids learning new skills and having fun (and avoid hearing ‘I’m bored’ every 30 seconds) all in #TheGreatIndoors.

See the Scout HQ website for all the details at https://www.scouts.org.uk/the-great-indoors

For other resources such a magazines, books and newspapers why not pop along to your local library? Impossible during the lockdown? Not at all. West Sussex Council provides library members with an e-library that has all of these for free. No need for expensive magaizine subscriptions - just pop along and download onto your phone or tablet.

It is a servicer available to all West Sussex Library members as you need your library card number to log in. See more information at https://www.westsussex.gov.uk/libraries/elibrary-electronic-library/. We have popped a reminder on our members noticeboard page too.
