Look No Nails!


This week the Scouts built a Leonardo da Vinci bridge – which just uses pieces of wood and friction – no nails, no rope, no glue!

Not sure whether this qualifies as part of the Pioneering badge or not, but still a lot of fun.

Group Fun Day – 8th July

Hungry Hippo Game

The Group’s Annual Family Fun Day will be held at Broomley Grange  on Saturday the 8th of July. All members, friends and family are welcome. For more details and to book a place, contact any of the Section Leaders.

Into the night

Cubs in the woods

Cubs (in high-vis jackets) set off on an evening hike around Stocksfield just as the sun goes down. They managed to track down frogspawn and tadpoles in pond en-route as well as every puddle that could be jumped in 🙂

Working together


The Scout Association is keen for people (within Scouting as well as outside it) to recognise that it is “Youth Shaped” – all about young people and adults working in partnership together. UK Scouting is focusing on February to really support young people and volunteers to embed this traditional part of Scouting into what we do and celebrate what are already good examples of Youth Shaped Scouting.

Groups are challenged to run a series of YouShape activities where the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts take a significant role in determining the programme. One way that sections can do this is to declaring it for everyone to see, by creating a pledge that both leaders and young people can sign up to.


Bowling Alley

This coming Thursday the Stocksfield Scouts will be competing in a global Scout bowling competition – wish them well!

Scouts next to Santa

Thanks to all who gave money – the collections on the two nights in Stocksfield and Mickley raised over £700 for local good causes.
