Update from the donkey stables

 Training is in full swing for our annual romp around Eling Recreation Ground on 18th May. However there is some sadness as there are currently a number of donkeys without names and without owners.

A big thank you from Phil the Bag

Just some of the material collected

Thank you to everyone who donated items and helped with the collecting. 

This has raised £243.60 for the group. 

Please don't throw anything away (shoes, bags, towels, any material, school uniform, tea towels, odd socks........) - we will be having another collection in the Autumn.

James Ketchell Photographs

Some photos from the recent visit to Testwood Lakes and Aquativity, by James Ketchell, adventurer and Scout Ambassador.
jk33 James visited Testwood Lakes as part of a tour of Hampshire to raise awareness of his planned adventure to cycle around the world. Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from the Group were on hand to meet him. As a reminder of his rowing trip across the Atlantic James was invited onto the lake in Pegasus.

Well, what a day! The sun shone, Paul our GSL demonstrated his prowess on the water, James Ketchell, our new County Scout Ambassador visited the new HQ, the plasterboarding working party was in full swing, Scouts were at County Winter Camp and we had about 30 visitors.
