Fire, Water, Mud & Air

Posted on January 28th, 2015 by Tom

Last weekend, over 50 cubs from Bassetlaw descended on Magna for a weekend of fun and adventure.

Firstly they headed off to fire where all the cubs were amazed by the fire tornado. In the fire DSCF5722area there were also many other activities that all the cubs had a go on. All the cubs really enjoyed having a go with the magnet crane and learning about how engines work.

After water, we went down to earth where the cubs played with real diggers and saw mineing equipment in action.

On the Sunday, we headed outside to the play area where the cubs had a awesome time climbing and sliding.

Better Prepared

Posted on October 31st, 2014 by Cameron

On Wednesday 29th October, 2 of our Explorers and our DC went down to the House of Commons, with some more members of the Scout Association, to meet with MPs to launch ‘Better Prepared’.  Better Prepared is a new initiative from the Scout Association to try and get more support for Scouting in the 200 most disadvantaged wards in the UK.


Neave and Daisy did a fantastic job during the day.  They were brilliant at talking with the MPs about the difference that Scouting has made to their lives and the impact it has had on them.  During the day, not only did they meet many MPs from all over the UK, but they also met the Speaker of the House of Commons, the UK Commissioner (Wayne Bulpitt), The Commissioner for England (Mark Tarry), The Scout Association’s Chief Executive (Matt Hyde) and also, the brand new Youth Commissioner (Hannah Kentish).


The day was a brilliant experience for the Explorers, and fantastic, not only for Bassetlaw, but for Scouting across the UK.
