Hello, and for those of you that have been away I hope you had better weather than we did in t‘ North. Though I am fortunate in heading off to the Sun (I hope) for a few days next week. Just looking at the diary for the next few weeks makes me realise how ―full on‖ you all come back to Scouting in September - Team meeting‘s, district camps, Border hike, Kinder walk, Dove canoe race, Rampage, executive training, QSA presentations, DC‘s meeting, Awards nights, training week ends and so much more at group and district level. Having got back from really a very wet holiday the highlight of awaiting mail was an envelope full of postcards and notes from the Jamboree contingent. They were full of enthusiasm and heartfelt comments about friends they had made within the contingent and the world and how they thought the experience has changed them and how future Scouts should take the opportunity for international experiences whenever offered. I have yet to get together with the contingent leaders but it is clear that a brilliant, emotional and very tiring time was enjoyed by everyone. It goes without saying we all owe a special thanks to Gill, Graham, Gavin, Matt, Vikki, Jane & Stephen who spent the last 2 years building a contingent and taking responsibility for them at the World Jamboree. Thank you all. I look forward to hearing from our young people at various events over the next 12 months. I assume by now you will all have heard of the Really BIG Weekend - this is a week end of Derbyshire Scouts & Scouters coming together on two days in November (19th & 20th) to look at how we shape Scouting in Derbyshire for the future. Saturday 19th is for adults. In the morning the work sessions of the day where you give and share your thoughts followed by a raft of practical, informative and interactive sessions in the afternoon.

Sunday 20th is given over to the youth of Derbyshire with the day being put together and run by our younger Scouters for our young people. What do they want from Derbyshire Scouting? This will involve all sections - Beaver Scouts and Cub Scouts in the morning, the rest in the afternoon. They will also have some fun bases to break the day up - climbing, biking etc. Both days will have keynote speakers from HQ. Obviously we cannot accommodate all 9000 Scouts from Derbyshire so places will be limited. DC‘s will be getting information towards the end of September so look out for this in the coming month!


ie s c n a c a V & Welcomes Welcome to Nick Coward ACC Activities. It is with great pleasure I welcome Nick to the role of ACC Activities Derbyshire Nick Coward, our new ACC Activities, arrived in Derbyshire just over a year ago from Buckinghamshire. Nick is 38, lives in Crich with his wife and runs his own company. With a long history within the Scout Movement Nick joined the Scout Association as a Cub, and then progressed through the Movement to Scouts and eventually joining Venture Scouts, where he gained his Queens Scout Award and enthusiasm for outdoor activities. For his Queens Scout expedition he did a 5 day hike across the Pyrenees and whilst in Venture Scouts was introduced and actively pursued caving, rock climbing, mountaineering and canoeing. Nick took his first adult appointment as a Cub Scout Instructor in 1991 at 1st Marlow Bottom where he had already been helping as Venture Scout helper. He then took out a full warrant and has held various Cub and Scout leader warrants over the years as well as being a caving adviser and assessor for Bucks, Oxon and Berkshire. Having caved for over 20 years Nick holds a NGB for caving and mine exploration. He still enjoys canoeing, cycling, hill walking, power kiting, snorkelling and of course caving and mine exploration! Joining the Derbyshire team back in April last year as caving adviser and assessor Nick has created the Derbyshire Scout Caving Team, (which is incredibly successful in such a short time) and is actively involved with the team. Moving forward Nick will carry on the good work that Dave Mitchell has started and intends to create new SAS Units within the county. In addition to the already existing mountain biking and caving units he is looking to build SAS units for canoeing, climbing and scuba diving to start. Nick also will be supporting DCs and the county team by advising of the current changes to POR relating activities and offer support to all other sections with regards to Activities. I am sure Nick will be areal asset to Derbyshire Scouting.

Welcome to :- Phil Hill District Commissioner Derwent and Dove It is a pleasure to welcome Phil into a new role in Derbyshire Scouting Phil was a Cub and Scout at Alfreton and Somercotes As a Grenadier Guard. He has done Royal Duties at Buckingham Palace, St James‘s Palace, The Tower of London, Windsor Castle and the Bank of England and taken part in a number of Queens Birthday Parades.

He has held a TA List ‗A‘ commission and had careers in intelligence with both the TA and Drerbyshire Police force followed by service as a Probation Officer currently he lectures with the Open university . Shooting and Scuba Diving are two passions that he has, training as an Advanced Shooting Coach, and Advanced Diver and Advanced Instructor qualifications with the British SubAqua Club. I hope he is able to share his passion for these sports with others in Scouting. He already has plans for Sub Aqua. He has spent some 25 years as an Army Cadet Force Officer, mostly in Derbyshire and much of that time treading the same turf that he will now tread as DC Derwent and Dove so has a good knowledge of the challenges that working a rural area can pose. Away from Scouting he has interests as a Town Councilor (Heanor Town Council) sits on the Derbyshire Committee for the Army Benevolent Fund and is a Member of Derbyshire SSAFA (Soldiers Sailors Air Force and their Families Charity). He tells me that ―In the short time I have been with the District I have come to admire the enthusiasm and dedication of the District Team, the Group Scout Leaders and Leaders and am pleased to report that the children and young people are super and are brimming with enthusiasm and a pleasure to work for. I am privileged to have an understanding Chair (Geoff Stevens) and a strong support network in the District Executive. Mel Dyson is going to be a tough act to follow (anyone who knows Mel will not need to be told about the excellent work he did in the County and the District and continues to do quietly in the background). I am grateful for his advice and support and it is reassuring to know that he is there to be consulted when the challenges that the role presents need a wider and more informed / I want to finish by saying how proud I am to be having been asked to take the role of DC in Derwent and Dove. I am already very conscious of the wealth of skills and expertise amongst the team and will endeavour to support the leaders in the excellent work that they do, to the best of my ability, for the benefit of those children and young people who have joined Derbyshire Scouts. My personal thanks to all in Derwent and Dove District, for the excellent work that you have done, and continue to do and I am looking forward to a long and happy association with the District‖ We look forward to Phil building on the work Mel has done to date. Tom


ie s c n a c a V & Welcomes We are currently looking for District Commissioners for the following districts.

Belper

South Derbyshire

&

Derby South.

These are important positions in Scouting and without someone in the role makes life difficult for the District . If you think there is someone that you think would make a good District Commissioner please ask Jacquie for a nomination form. Sometimes those on the outside see more in someone than they see in themselves if you see what I mean. You could also nominate yourself of course. Also please consider those who you know who are not currently in Scouting but have all the right attributes to manage a district. I recognise all the districts have tough acts to follow but we are looking for someone to fill the role of District Commissioner and not to do everything we have been fortunate that the current DC’s have been able to do. If you are not sure please call myself for a chat 01159324433, Tom


e h T d n u o Ar County ur Send us yo Long Eaton & District Activity Trophy 2011 On a Saturday at the end of January 3 packs from the District met at Sawley Scout Group‘s Headquarters to complete a time travel Challenge set by our ADC (cubs). The Cubs had a fantastic time and here are their comments after the event - ―It was fun because it was different‖, ―You could choose what to make, there was plenty of things to choose from, I liked it because all the teams made different machines‖, ―We won‖, Leighton said ― I‘ve still got it in my garage, I‘m not throwing it away. It was really good, a good experience of how to make stuff from rubbish into something amazing. Akela couldn‘t believe the imagination of her team. At the next Pack meeting the team presented their winning sketch , complete with time machine, to the rest of the Pack. Later in the term we repeated the challenge with the Pack and another fun evening was had.

Having sailed to Norway in 2008, when the opportunity arose to do it all again this year I didn't need much persuasion! I've been involved with Adventures Offshore for several years, taking Scouts and other groups offshore sailing and out to the Tall Ships Races in Russia, Poland, Denmark, Portugal, etc - but Norway tops the list of sailing destinations by far. This year the boats had been booked by some Sea Explorer Scouts/Network from Bingley, plus a couple of DoE participants and an Explorer leader from Belper. We were seen off by the Mayor of Ipswich (to whom I'd like to apologise for splashing with coffee), the Suffolk Fire Service water rescue team and a small gathering of locals. We took the familiar hour-long trip down the River Orwell past the container port at Felixstowe; before heading out to sea and setting course for southern Norway. We'd banked on the crossing taking around 4-5 days given reasonable wind and weather, but within a few hours it became apparent that with the strong winds and big seas we might be able to beat that - at times we were surfing down waves at 13+ knots as opposed to plodding along at the usual 6. Many of the crew suffered with bouts of seasickness for the first day or so, but what is always impressive on these trips is to watch how the group bonds and help each other out - everyone got along really well and even those that had felt sick were laughing at the skippers' awful jokes. The passage over to Norway involved working watches throughout the day and night, and whilst there was little to look there was always plenty to do - whether that was steering, cooking the next meal, or building houses of cards below deck whilst the boat was bouncing around. My watch were particularly impressed when we passed an impressive oil rig at dusk whilst we had dolphins swimming alongside us just magical. Our first port of call once we'd worked our way through the numerous rocky islands that lie off the coast was the small town of Tananger, where there was a dash for the showers. The crew were also introduced to geocaching, and the extortionate price of sweets and chocolate in Norway at the local supermarket. Over the next week and half, we cruised the fjords to the north of our final destination, Stavanger. The highlight of it all was undoubtedly a hike up to the glacier above the tiny village of Sunndal, where the views were absolutely stunning. We'd visited the same place in 2008 and knew we had to return - the crew were not disappointed. Another night, we found ourselves a beautiful little anchorage from where we were able to row ashore to cook the fish we'd just caught over an open fire. Less than 30 minutes from hook to stomach - you don't get much fresher than that!

Unfortunately, our high spirits were dented somewhat when we heard the shocking news of the killings in Oslo. Our courtesy flag was lowered to half mast as a mark of respect and when we arrived in Stavanger, the crew decided to stick on their uniforms and pay a visit to the church to lay flowers and pay their respects to those that had lost their lives. The trip came to a close with the usual Tall Ship festivities, and some of the crew were able to finish on a high, quite literally, by experiencing the thrill of climbing the mast of Kruzhernstern - a Russian tall ship and one of the largest in the world. A superb couple of weeks and a real adventure. I honestly believe that offshore sailing - and especially taking part in an extended trip like this - is one of the greatest adventures you can have in Scouting. It is great for getting people working as a team and testing yourself in challenging situations. For some, it is the overcoming the feeling of being out of sight of land on a relatively small boat with just the crew for company; for me as a member of the afterguard it was navigating the boat safely through the lumps of rock that the Norwegians have randomly scattered about. In any case, if you haven't given it a go yet, you really should - and bring your Explorers, Network, leadership team or whoever with you.

Adventures Offshore have just published their 2012 programme, which includes a mix of weekends and extended bank holiday weekends sailing from their Ipswich base. Next summer a series of week long cruises are planned; taking in the Channel Islands, northern France, Belgium and Holland. These longer trips are suitable for the Queen's Scout/DoE residential experiences, or maybe just an alternative to a normal summer camp, and offer participants the chance to gain their RYA Competent Crew or Watch Leader qualification.

Beaver Scout Bonanza 5. 3rd July 2011 A Day of Sun and Fun. What can I say about Bonanza 5? It was amazing! The sun was blazing down as over 1,100 Beaver Scouts from every District in the county arrived at Drumhill to ―Explore the Elements with Furry Fred‖. What many had not realised was just how big the event is. Most of them are used to attending District Fun Days with maybe around 200 Beaver Scouts present – but to see over 1100 in one place is awesome! After a few technical hitches (no PA system for one), the day started with a bang! A vey loud firework which alerted Earth, Air, Fire and Water to the imminent arrival of 250+ Beaver Scouts to their Land. Each Land had a gateway to negotiate (you got squirted with water on arrival at one – I am sure you can guess which!) and once on the Land there was an amazing selection of activities for the Beaver Scouts to enjoy – too many to fit in to just one hour before the hooter sounded to change areas.

On ―Earth” there were scooters and grass-sledges to ride down hill, camels to race, mazes and trails to explore, snakes, grass heads and a weather beaver to make, a sand pit to play in, the zip wire to ride on, and not forgetting the digger (thank you

to the Drumhill team member who provided non-stop supervision).

“Fire” offered a chance to go down a fireman‘s pole at the start of an adventure course, do some campfire cooking (chocolate bananas, toasted marshmallows and more), ride the dragon simulator, decorate a tea-light, negogiate the rope bridge and play with toy fireengines. The real one put in a brief appearance in the afternoon. Once again there was a maze to explore and lots of crafts to do. Air was designed with a cental runway ending at a real microlite plane. There were hangers (marquees and gazebos) alongside full of activities – air canons (both large and small), archery, drums to play, kazoos, hovercrafts and dr eam catc hers to make (to name but a few), the giant slide to bounce down and lots of bubbles – one even big enough to fit a Beaver Scout inside!

“Water” (as you guessed) had a squirty gateway (did you recognize Amazon from Peak 2010?). Once inside there was the Pirate trail where you created your outfit on the way to the ship, Hook a Duck and Hungry Hippos to play, water music to make from colourful milk bottles, experiments to try, lots of boats to float and a chance to learn how to wash your hands properly before icing biscuits!

Lunch time came all to quickly – especially for those who had just made it to the front of the queue for some of the acivities! However, the land teams need a break and a chance to restock ready for another 500 excited Beaver Scouts in the afternoon. The ice cream vans were on site (though they built up a queue too), there was a selection of garden games to play, Furry Fred, Baden Powell and others to meet a n d chat to and the colony disks to view – w i t h som e really

splendid designs. If you want to see what they looked like

then visit the Beaver Scout pages on www.derbyshirescouts.org. where there is a photo gallery which features many of them. After two more hours of fun and sun, it was time to re-unite lost property with the owners (though there is still quite a bit left) and say goodbye. Unfortunately our campfire leader had lost her voice and the sun was still blazing down, so we shouted our thanks and said goodbye. Amazingly, within two hours of the Beaver Scouts departure the only thing left standing at Drumhill was the Amazon Gateway – which has now travelled to Leicetershire for an event in that County. I would like to thank everyone who came and helped us provide such a fantastic day for the Beaver Scouts of Derbyshire which I think can be summed up with the following quote from a Beaver Scout talking to Jean Barton. ―Have you had a good day?‖……………… ―No, I‘ve had a GREAT day!‖ Joy Templer – ACC Beaver Scouts – Derbyshire PS. There are a few more photos from the day on the website and we hope to have a CD/DVD available in the autumn. If you have any photos from the event which you are happy to share – please send them to me either via email at: accbeavers@derbyshirescouts.org or on a disc in the post to 13 Darwin Road, Mickleover, Derby.

Hello all, Hope you all enjoyed the summer break and are now feeling refreshed and ready for yet another busy year.

Many of you will have undertaken some wonderful camps and I am sure there are many still to come. I know how much time it takes to prepare fun weekends away and you should all be thanked for giving up time to enable your cubs to experience time away from their families whilst participating in a wide variety of activities. I thought it might be a good idea to share your camp programmes with other packs in the county. If you would like to contribute please e-mail me or send a copy of your programme to your ADC. The next ADC meeting is in October. If there is anything you would like us to discuss please let me know. I look forward to seeing you over the next twelve months especially at Shirree. Tracy Lugg ACC Cubs South Derbyshire Cubs Over the summer the packs have all been active doing outdoor activities. We held a Disrict camp at Walesby. Attendance was only 35 kids from 4 packs but even so everyone had a great time. The theme was Robin Hood and we visited the major oak and visitors centre. Saturday evening was in Robin Hood fancy dress - some great costumes. On Sunday morning the kids did 2 onsite activities. Even taking the tents down in the pouring rain didn't dampen spirits and we all came home happy, tired and extremely wet. Some packs have also held group camps. I did 3 visits to various packs talking about the jamboree as part of the Global Challenge and the Join in Jamboree theme, taking my badges from Chelmsford, a world map and stickers to visualise the world wide movement. Cubs in South Derbyshire are very active and growing - we hope this continues over the next few months.

Welsh Council’s Dragon Award

I am delighted to report we have now awarded our first Silver Award – to Charlotte of 86th Derby from Derby East District. One experience that did stick out was going to sleep in her small tent – which then appeared to have been transformed to an igloo in the morning!

You can start at any time with no time limit. Open to Scouts and Leaders. Record on the Record Card (can be downloaded via the website) Upon completion, contact your ACC who will arrange to present your badges – he will even provide them! – now that‘s got to be good! The next step for the Silver is to choose another 12 challenges from the list.

Rampage 2011 The competition appears to be getting more popular – by 22nd July, we had received the full complement of entries. A new challenge for this year is for the Scouts to demonstrate fire lighting – without matches! Should be entertaining as well as challenging I think.

Kinder Walk & Kinder Challenge. As I write this (17th August) we only have 7 teams entered for the Walk & 8 for the Challenge. Don‘t forget to be eligible for a free ‗T‘ shirt, we do need your entry by 11th September – we need to place the order for the shirts on that date. We will have a limited number for sale (£5.00 each) on the event.

We were also pleased to present a Gold Award – this time to a Leader (yes Leaders can gain the awards as well) to Shaun Maskrey from 132nd Derby – again Derby East.

I hope you have all had a good camping season and maybe even a well deserved rest from Scouting activities over the summer period. Don‘t forget to record all the activities – that may well link in the your Scouts‘ next Challenge Award. I hope to see lot more Chief Scouts Gold Awards coming up.

The requirements to gain the Bronze Award are very simple:-

Dave MacAlister - ACC (Scouts) E-mail: acc-scouts@derbyshirescouts.org

Charlotte receiving her award at the Group AGM and rounders match at Drum Hill.

Spend 1 night under canvas or bivouac in each month over a 12 month period.


Derbyshire Network Kandersteg 2011

In August, 16 members of Derbyshire Scout Network headed off for a week of adventure at Kandersteg International Scou Centre in Switzerland. This was the first international county Network trip for Derbyshire, and a fantastic time was had by all

Our adventure began with a mammoth train trip from Paris to Kandersteg, taking in Strasbourg, Basel and Bern along th way. We quickly realised that train carriages that seat 16 weren’t designed for 16 people going camping for a week!

During the week we took part in many different activities, including hiking, swimming in a glacial lake and sightseeing. Fo most people the highlights of the trip were canyonning in the Chili Schlieren canyon near Interlaken, which involved sliding rappelling and jumping down rocks following the course of a river and a trip to the Jungfraujoch, the railway station i Europe at 3454m.

Several members of the group chose to go paragliding during the trip, which was also rated very highly, thanks to the fantas tic weather and beautiful scenery.

It is difficult to explain the fantastic atmosphere of KISC, where we met many Scouts from all over the world (as well as lot from the UK), but it is easy to say that it’s a very friendly, welcoming place. I think Toby Meek summed it up well when h described it as being “addictive”, several members of the group are already discussing their next trip to the centre!

The county has been out & about recently… Biggest show that we have been to promoting scouting is at the Bakewell show. This year our presence and profile raising there came with the newly logo‘d Gilwell Super Size Mobile Display Unit as part of the Freemason‘s project that is running in Peak District & now Derwent & Dove. Primarily organised by The Regional Development team Mike, Natalie and Michelle with an excellent & hard working team of leaders, scouts , together with Explorers Scout unit from Chesterfield District all of whom enjoyed two days of chatting to people local to Derbyshire and a few not so local!! The climbing tower sponsored by Peak District was kept busy from opening to closing on both days and provided a key attraction giving us the opportunity to chat to parents & adults whilst waiting for their youngsters to take their turn on the climbing tower. Our base provided some excellent Face painting, the Jumbo size Connect 4, the ever popular Hama Beads & tent pitching skills ( well the sort of tent that you fling on the ground and up it pops!!!) Parents rested with refreshments that we made available (it was very hot on the Wednesday) and a good time was had by all as they say …….. The team collected the names of 21 prospective leads and 44 young people and raised the profile of scouting yet again. A massive BIG Mega thank you to all who help. As ever we‘ll be reviewing the ‗ what went well‘ ‗what can we improve on‘ over the coming few weeks – for those who helped if you have any feed back then please pass it back to us dccdevelopment@derbyshirescouts.co.uk Chesterfield District

whole range of local community services & business were there on the day with freebies given away left , right & centre!! Adults & kids alike queued up to have photographs taken with the players, demonstrations with the emergency services, music & bands all added to the atmosphere. The district again took advantage of using our Derbyshire Mobile display Unit for both adult & young people recruitment. ACC Cub Scouts Tracy Lugg put her communication skills to good use chatting to prospective adults & young people ( as evidence by the photo…… well done Tracy) Activities at the unit were supported by crafts and clock making with the SAS gals Marge & Mary proved a popular attraction supported by colouring and some sweeties giveaways able secured by Mike Wilkinson ADC Development for Chesterfield District. Promoting scouting Explorer Scouts & leaders mingled the crowds able support by ‗Snaggle‘. The Snaggle out fit has been donated to the D e r b ys h i r e Mobile Display Unit for use on its travels out & about.

Chesterfield District took advantage of profiling scouting in their area when the district took the opportunity to take part in the community open day at the F.A.B ulous new ‗Spirites‘ Chesterfield Football ‗b2net‘ Club stadium this summer. A

The new ‗‘i.scout DO YOU‘‘ banners looked the part and can highly recommend that district‘s consider purchasing them to promote any event or ac tivit y the y tak e part in. Contac t www.sailflags.co.uk
