A nice thank you from Be Richmond for our Cubs and Scouts who have planted and looked after the flower beds in Parkshot near the Little Green – https://berichmond.london/media/scouts-do-their-best-to-help-be-richmond-win-london-in-bloom-silver/
Congratulations to everyone who won and who were runners-up in this year’s Beaver, Cub and Scout of the year awards given out at our annual open evening and AGM, and also to the first recipients of the ‘Baker Cups’ trophies given out for the most improved Beaver, Cub and Scout which will now be given out each year, of course named in memory of ‘Chief’ Barry Baker who led and gave such a huge amount of his time to keep North Richmond running for well over 50 years, and who had been part of the group all of his life since he was a Scout himself.
Getting so many of the group together for Remembrance Sunday also gave us the chance this week to take a big group photo of everyone, along with a photo of our growing group of Young Leaders!
We had a fantastic turn-out from the group on Remembrance Sunday for Richmond’s Remembrance Parade and service with 70 from the group attending alongside the Royal British legion, other Richmond organisations and more Scout and youth groups.
Time for a sign update at the hut!
Our first group summer Barbecue, getting everyone together for some food and games on Saturday at HQ, and over the Old Deer Park.
Some photos of the Groups 35th annual family camp, at Walton Firs last weekend, with 3 days of uninterrupted sunshine!
We had a great day at Richmond May Fair last Saturday, raising money for the Group
