“On my honour, I promise that I will do my best; To do my duty to God and to the Queen, To help other people, And to keep the Scout Law” – The Scout Promise

We run two Scout Troops at Randwick Scout Group – one on a Thursday evening and one on a Friday evening. Each troop is run by a Leader who is supported by parent helpers. Our Leaders plan and organise a varied and adventurous programme of termly activities.

As the oldest members of Randwick Scout Group, Scouts are encouraged to develop their independence by participating in a wide range of activities. Participation is key to gaining both challenge awards and badges to recognise Scouts’ achievements.

July 2019 saw the Scouts take part in a 10 km sponsored hike and Minchinhampton and Rodborough Common in aid of Longfield Hospice, who provide care to people with life limiting illness and their families.  Those who took part raised over £200 in sponsorship for a brilliant charity. Despite the rain earlier on in the day the sun shone on a lovely summers evening.  As well as walking the Scouts completed their stand-up paddleboards (SUP) that where constructed out of plastic board and plastic tubing, which would have otherwise ended up in landfill.  Those who took part in our watersports day then had the chance to try out their SUP, as well as kayaking and raft building on the Thames and Severn Canal.
 
At the end of July, the Scouts took part in a 5 km incident hike around Randwick were at various checkpoints each Patrol had to take part in an activity to score points.  Activities ranged from making a cup of tea to DR ABC.
               
August started with the Scouts deciding what they wanted to do themselves and headed down to Severnside Scout Hut for an evening of air rifle shooting.  The following week Randwick Scouts joined Selsley Scout Troop at Penn Wood Scouting Centre for a night of shelter building, with all Scouts constructing a shelter out of tarp and sleeping overnight in the woods.  The following day the Scouts took charge to run bases at the District’s first incident hike for Beavers.
               
August ended with both Scout Troop heading to Stroud Bowl for an evening of ten pin bowling.
 
The term ended with over 40 Cubs and Scouts spending the weekend at Acorn Adventure in the Brecon Beacon where they enjoyed a weekend of watersports and climbing.
