Farnham District Scouts – July 2022

What has been happening:

Scoutabout – fantastic weekend nearly 5000 people on site; well done and thank you to all our volunteers without who our 130 Scouts could not have had the wonderful experience and opportunity.  Particular shout out for Oscar (5th) for helping co-ordinate including sorting the transport, Sam (2nd) for hiring the van and picking up all the equipment and especially Sarah (2nd) for organising the food – most important for keeping th e Scouts energised and happy.  Also for those who organised our District Tomahawk activity and those who helped on shooting and kayaking.

Scoutabout is back in 2024……………………

Farnham Carnival – well done to 4th for winning Gold at the Farnham Carnival.
