Hampshire Scouts provides adventurous activities and personal development opportunities for over 16,000 young people aged 6-25, promoting the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual well-being of the individual, helping them achieve their full potential. In Scouting, we believe that young people develop most when they are ‘learning by doing,’ when they are given responsibility, work in teams, take acceptable risks and think for themselves.

Diversity in Scouting At our County Annual Review in June we celebrated the many achievements of Hampshire Scouting – from expeditions and jamborees, to offering adventure to over 16,500 young people, to opening new Scout Groups around the County. But I also talked about one area where we could do better – Diversity. We showed the new video commissioned by the Scout Association, which shows the potential of Scouting for the inner cities - watch it now at

According to our Census, 2.4% of our members were BME (Black and Minority Ethnic), compared to 7% of the population in Hampshire. If we believe that Scouting has something valuable to offer young people; if we believe that Scouting can make a real difference in the community; if we believe that Scouting is for all; then we need to expect more. I know that there are Scout Groups in Hampshire who cater successfully for young people with special needs, that attract young people from our diverse communities, and that have their meeting places in our estates and inner cities – and this is great and really valuable work. But can we expand this? So that all young people have the chance to enjoy the adventure of Scouting? Can we reach out into the BME communities and help them establish Scout Groups of their own? Can we start Scouting provision in children’s wards and long-term residential care? And can we offer Scouting to the teenagers on street corners who we cross the road to avoid? Look back at the old books about Scouting. There you’ll find tales of Scouting in mean streets, Scouting in hospitals, and even Scouting in prisons. I know there are many challenges; I realise we may need to recruit leaders with specialist skills; and I appreciate we will need to be flexible in our approach. But wouldn’t it just be so amazing if we could achieve some of these ideals. We need to expect more.

was nominated to be a Torch bearer for my Scouting work as DC of Itchen South. I was lucky enough to be selected and I was the 40th runner on day 31, of the Torch relay on 18th June 2012. My part of the relay was in Sandsend, Whitby, North Yorkshire. I ran down Lythe Bank, a 25% steep hill. I don’t think I would have made it if it were up! The sun shone and the experience was fantastic on the day. Since then I have been sharing my Olympic Torch relay moment with lots of people. The picture shows me with 1st Itchen South Cubs.

! d o o g r Back fo Group ut o c S y e l s r u 1st H

The new Beaver Colony in Hursley with Carolyn Darbyshire District Commissioner for Chandles Ford. Its new members were invested at All Saints Church in the village on Saturday 19th May. The revival of the group has started with the Beavers, who are aged six to eight, but others could soon follow. The Beaver Colony will be led by Marie Carter and Jackie Norman along with several other adult volunteers. The group contains 12 young people who were invested by District Commissioner Carolyn Darbyshire. She said: “I am delighted to have 1st Hursley in the district and looking forward to an exciting time with the group expanding. There is such good support from the parents, the village and the school.” The first Scout group in Hursley was launched in 1909 but closed in the early 1960’s. It was revived in 1981 but was unable to continue by 2000 owing to a lack of adult volunteers. By Warwick Payne Hampshire Chronicle

The 1st Forres Sandle Manor provided a trumpeter and Honour Guard for the lighting of our village bonfire. It was a tractor fest, with tractors proceeding with bunting! The Cub trumpeter played God Save the Queen and accompanied our honoured guest, with flags so he could ignite the bonfire before the Royal toast. It was on the Saturday before the serious rain and the Cubs did very well, keeping their promise with style! In front of the 70-80 neighbours in the hamlet of Blissford outside Fordingbridge in the New Forest.

Fareham East Scout Group

celebrate with a Jubilee Group Camp What a delight to see 17th Fareham (Holy Trinity) Scout Group celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee with Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and the newly formed District Network. All joining in on a Jubilee camp in early June this year, at Cricket Camp. Although somewhat wet & windy, this did not deter the group having a truly fabulous time. Managing a fun packed afternoon of Olympic themed games played with enthusiasm by over a hundred competitive contestants including, mums, dads, grandparents and carers. This was followed by a feast fit for the Queen in the shape of a celebration barbecue, finishing off with strawberries and cream, whilst the sun went down. It was such a delight to see children and adults of all ages coming together to make it a truly memorable time for all. It was also a first for the group to have all five sections (Explorers and Network having a close link with the 17th) able to come together by breaking the flag to commence the days fun and activities. Despite being thoroughly soaked to break camp, everyone wanted to know when the next one was. A great result!! Susie Maddy Group Exec

Ringwood celebrations

for the Diamond Jubilee The Market Town of Ringwood provided double celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee, which culminated in a spectacular firework display, the likes of which had never before been seen in the town.

The weekend’s events started with the Town Council providing street party packs, free of charge, for street parties throughout the town. Those packs enabled individual small communities in streets, and in residential homes to hold their own celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee at a time that was convenient to each of them. In addition to the street parties, school children and those in elderly residential care homes were able to benefit from the Town Council’s party pack provisions. Cllr Barbara Woodifield, Chairman of the Town Council’s Diamond Jubilee Working Party, was delighted with the way the local residents had taken up the offer of the party packs and said that after initially fearing this would be a low key event in the town, she was very pleased that, as usual, everyone pulled out all the stops and made it a night to remember. Typical of our community spirit. The big finale was the event sponsored by the Town Council, and organised by the Ellingham & Ringwood Rugby Club and the Ringwood Scout Group which took place on the Bickerley on Monday 4th June. I was delighted to be invited to press the plunger to start the firework display on the Bickerley’, said Cllr Steve Rippon Swaine, the Town Mayor of Ringwood, ‘which led through to the lighting of the Beacon on the Bickerley, which was part of the nationwide chain organised to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. The fireworks were absolutely out-standing and the Town Council’s thanks, which I am sure are echoed by everyone who attended, is extended to firstly; the Rugby Club and the Scouts for carrying the brunt of the organisation, but also to the vast number of people who helped those organisations, and also all those people who contributed money to the funding appeal that allowed the organisers to provide such a great display. Thanks also to Pains, who provided and managed the display. Without the help of all of these people, this event could not have taken place and the Town Council sincerely hopes that other groups and volunteers will want to work with the Council to provide this type of event more often within the town’.

Thames R ond Jubilee

Little did I know, in October 2011 that the 4th Itchen South (Netley) Sea Scouts would be taking part in the largest Pageant in history when I completed the form in to register an interest in taking part in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Thames River Pageant. We were in jubilation when an email was received on 30th December confirming we had been accepted to take part. The boat we were to row in the pageant was “Sir Harry”, built in 2010, and was named after Sir Harry Crichton, Hampshire’s first County Scout Commissioner. The group is honoured to carry his name as “Sir Harry Crichton’s Own”. Sir Harry lived at Netley Castle and was a good friend of Sir Robert Baden-Powell who stayed at the Castle on his visits to Hampshire. The Netley Castle boathouse was the early home to the Scouts water activities. It is now a private home. “Sir Harry” is a Bursledon Gig of 15’ 2” LOA and can allow up to 6 scouts to row plus one coxswain. These boats are based on a design of a Falmouth Oyster Punt. One of these boats ended its days donating its body as a plug for Cygnus Marine’s CY15, built for years on the Fal. “Sir Harry” made its first outing for the 2010 Bursledon Regatta, where several of these craft meet to race on the River Hamble. These craft also compete at The Hamble River Raid and Netley Regatta. The boat was named by Mr Eric Woodsford, an old Netley Sea Scout from the 1920’s at the

Jubilee Sailing Trusts Pumpkin Festival in 2010. The 4th Itchen South (Netley) Sea Scouts can trace its roots to the early days of Scouting, the group was formed by September 1908 and registered in June 1909. The first Chief Sea Scout was Admiral Lord Charles Beresford who was a cousin to Sir Harry. It is difficult in the midsts of time to ascertain when Sea Scouting started at Netley. The most difficult part of the preparation process was the crew selection. Eventually the crew selected were five Scouts and two leaders : - Abbey Robins, Imogen Beesley, Jack Simmons, William Garrod, Andrew Pimm, Carl Robins – Scout Leader, Kevin Earl – Group Scout Leader. On Saturday the boat was taken up to its launch point in Chiswick at the University of London Boat Club, where Sir Harry was removed from its trailer ready for launching, and the trailer towed across London to the Surrey Docks ready for recovery the following day. Sir Harry was launched at Chiswick on Sunday morning at around 10:00 with the assistance of the Maori team from New Zealand. The University of London Boat Club was the base for all the New Zealand teams taking part in the Pageant, and we were honoured by a visit from the New Zealand Prime Minister John Key. Unfortunately the Scouts were stuck in Putney, some four miles down River, unable to get to Chiswick. “Sir Harry” was towed to Putney Embankment by the team “Young Kiwis”, who were

rowing a boat from the Docklands Scout Project. We are deeply indebted to the “Young Kiwis” who helped out with the tow. At Putney Embankment our Scouts boarded Sir Harry for what was to become the largest Pageant in history with a 1,000 boats taking part to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. It was a short row to Battersea Bridge and the start of the Pageant, where we passed the Queen who was on board the “Spirit of Chartwell”. This is where we saluted her Majesty the Queen. We then had a 9.5 mile row to Tower Bridge and beyond to our destination at Surrey Docks. We were encouraged by the cheers of support for us. Now and then we would hear a cheer and shout from the masses of spectators assembled on the banks, “Come on Netley Scouts”. “Sir Harry” is very identifiable with “Netley Sea Scouts” in big letters on the side of the boat. We knew some other members of the group were coming up to cheer us on, which included Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. They came up by train, being looked after by Jan and Christina our Cub and Beaver leaders respectively, together with some parent helpers. They all had a great time despite the long wait in the heaving crowds, and the soaking rain on their way back to Waterloo Station. The cheers of support were appreciated, even though we couldn’t identify them amongst the sea of faces on the embankment. Whilst rowing we met and had a chat with Ben Fogle and Helen Skelton from the BBC, rowing a Thames Skiff. We enjoyed the sights of London from the River and the whole atmosphere was wonderful. We

eventually passed the HMS Belfast and soon under Tower Bridge, with a further 2.5 miles to go to the Surrey Docks, where we had to lock in. This was the most gruelling as we had to maintain the 4 knots with the wind increasing and was more on the bow, it had also started to rain as we passed under Tower Bridge. A PLA launch was near by keeping an eye on us, encouraging us along, and when the Scouts were offered a tow, it was declined. This spurred them on to complete the distance under oars and pick up the pace. I was very proud of them all. They must have been the youngest team to have completed the distance without a tow. We also made it into the Guinness Book of Records (together with the other 999 boats) for our participation in the largest pageant. We eventually made it to the lock gate at South Dock, and had a long wait to lock in due to the numbers of boats. We managed to land the Scouts ashore into the care of our shore support team. This enabled them to change into dry gear and warm up. We eventually retrieved “Sir Harry” at the Surrey Docks Water Activity Centre for our tow back to Netley. We eventually arrived back at our Netley boathouse at 23:00, ready for the “Netley Knees Up” Diamond Jubilee celebrations the following day. We would like to give our thanks to Mowgli and 4th Streatham Sea Scouts for their hospitality. They had two gigs in the manpowered section. We also owe our thanks to Erfaan and Richard our shore support team, without their support we could not have managed this event.

The Mayor of Winchester and over forty guests gathered for an extraordinary community portrait exhibition held by Excalibur Explorer Scouts in Winchester last week. Excalibur Explorer Scouts who are based in Winnall, Winchester held a private view of their gallery exhibition ‘Extraordinary Ordinary’ on Thursday 28th June at Winchester Discovery Centre. The portraits on display, taken of ‘ordinary’ Winchester folk, aimed to encourage viewers to question how they define themselves and to consider if, perhaps, we are all extraordinary. Each portrait was accompanied by a transcript interview which asked the person if they were ordinary or extraordinary and then dared them to describe something extraordinary about themselves. The results were warming, inspiring and surprising. A ghost sighting, introducing penicillin to the country, completing a transatlantic tall ship race, building a wind tunnel for a locust and working for a Nobel Prize winner are just a few of the extraordinary things that were discovered. During his speech to the guests the Mayor of Winchester commented: “It’s about perceptions. I don’t consider myself extraordinary, it’s just this around my neck that’s extraordinary. I still put my trousers on every morning... one leg at a time.” The project was devised by the Explorer Scout Unit and completed as part of Scout Community Week during which Scouts of all ages, across the nation, do something worthwhile for their own communities. Their unique idea aimed to give back to the Winchester community something creative and thought provoking rather than a newly painted fence or planted flower bed. Alex, an Excalibur Explorer Scout, said of the project “I learned that even the most ordinary people can be extraordinary and I was amazed how much people in this community give, if you just ask” Sophie Curtis, Excalibur Explorer Scout Leader said “I’m very proud of what they have achieved with this thought-provoking exhibition. It is so rewarding being a volunteer Scout Leader and seeing these young people grow and blossom; now they should be inspired to do even more extraordinary things themselves. Scouting allows young people to make a difference not just to their own lives but also to the lives of others in their community.” The Excalibur Explorers hope to produce a booklet of their work which will be sold locally to fundraise. If you would like to get involved with scouting in Winchester either as an Explorer Scout or as an adult volunteer then please contact:

14th World Scout Moot—Canada 2013 Fancy spending your summer in Canada?

Don’t miss out

Want to meet thousands of Scouts from across the world? Like to experience high-adrenalin activities, share cultures, and join in with local communities?

If you’ve already been on a World Scout Jamboree, or have heard a friend talk about the Moot, you’ll know just how much an event like this has to offer. It’s not one to miss out on.

Then think about attending the next World Scout Moot. It takes place in August 2013, when 5,000 young adults (aged 18 to 25) will converge on Awacamenj Mino in Canada for eleven days of outdoor adventure and expedition challenges in international patrols. With the UK contingent also enjoying a pre-Moot event in Ottawa and choosing from a range of post-Moot opportunities, it promises to be a once-ina-lifetime chance to explore this great country and make friends from around the globe.

Registration for the UK Contingent is now open If you were born between 9 August 1987 and 8 August 1995, you’re the right age to sign up as UK Contingent Moot participant. Opportunities are also available to those who were born before 9 August 1987 who wish to attend the Moot as a member of the International Service Team (IST). Click here for more information.

Scouting Safely—leader in charge happen when there isn't a

The build-up In October 2012, participants will have the chance to meet the rest of the UK Contingent at our first briefing weekend. You’ll also be able to start shaping your own Moot experience.
