Duck race update

Thanks to everyone who sold tickets for the Great Norwich Duck Race, raising a quacking £410 for the group!

In equally good news, one of our tickets won 2nd place, with one Scout, Riley, bagging himself £250 – not bad for a £2 ticket!

Thank you all and congratulations to Riley!

Save the dates!

Summer break

We’ll be taking a well earned rest over the summer, make a note in your diary:

Finish 22nd July, return 9th September

Finish 18th July, return 12th September

Finish 22nd July, return 9th September

Family Night AGM – 23rd September

Our group family night and AGM will be held on Friday 23rd September at 7pm.

There will be food, drink, activities, awards, a chance to meet the leaders and find out what we get up to!

All members and their families are invited. This replaces the regular Beaver and Scout meeting on the 23rd.

Group Camp – 30th September

All Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will be invited to our Group Camp being held 30th September – 2nd October.

More details (such as cost, timings, venue) will be available shortly and bookings will be online through OSM, so keep an eye on your emails over the next couple of weeks!

And finally…

Could you be one of our trustees?

Yes, you could! Working with young people isn’t for everyone. That’s why being a trustee is great – you’re making a difference to so many lives, without going camping, helping with activities, or running a session.

Become a trustee and help create a better future for our young people, today! Speak to James for more info.

Hire our Hall

Did you know our hall is available for hire? Whether you’re organising a birthday party or bake sale, we’d love to host your event.

We have extremely competitive rates and all funds go directly to our scout group, keeping your subs low!

For more details, visit our website or email

Textile recycling

Don’t forget about our textile bank, helping the planet and our group!

We’d love to have bagged:

  • Clothing
  • Paired shoes
  • Belts
  • Handbags

Gift Aid it!

If we’ve asked you to complete a Gift Aid declaration, please do as it means we are able to claim a 25p donation from HMRC for every £1 you give us.

This means our £111.60 annual subs get boosted up to £139.50 by the government, so it’s well worth doing.
