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.

On Sunday 8 June, members of all scouting sections from across the district enjoyed a range of activities and events at the Retford Scout and Guide Carnival, which was held in King’s Park. The Carnival started with a fancy dress parade led by the Retford Scout Band, the theme for which was films and saw Scouts and Guides alike appear in a variety of weird and wonderful costumes.
After the parade, costumes were judged and then some of the Scout Band’s longest serving members who have decided to retire from band duties were thanked by the district and the band for their years of service and presented with an award.
