Fells Marathon 2017

6 Nov 2017

A massive well done to the two Scout and the Explorer teams at this years Fells Marathon, staged around Carlton in Cleveland, approximately 9 miles south of Middlesbrough on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.

 

The Scout team were in second place at the end of the first day and finished 3rd overall after the second day.

The Explorer and the Scout Lite teams were not placed but did a fantastic effort throughout the event as it was a difficult course.  Out of the 9 Explorer teams which started, only 2 were placed and out of the 8 Scout Lite teams which started, only 2 were placed as well.

Scout Association announces its Programme Refresh

26 Jan 2015

Over the last four years the Scout Association asked thousands of members to tell us what they would like to see in an updated Programme – the results came in thick and fast and thanks to you we have refreshed the Programme and made it bigger and better than ever; providing more fun, more choice and more adventure.

As part of the refresh, we asked young people and adults which new badges they wanted to see and also what they thought of existing ones. As a result the badges have been refreshed for each section; some have had their requirements updated, some are brand new and some have been discontinued. Some new badges were released in April 2014 as the start of this update.

Other improvements include removing the Programme Zones but introducing three key themes: Outdoors and Adventure, Skills and World. There will be more emphasis on Outdoors and Adventure, making sure young people experience as much excitement as possible during their Scout journey.

The Top Awards will be more challenging for young people to complete but easier to deliver and understand, while the Chief Scout’s Awards will require greater commitment across a range of activities that better reflect the variety of the Scout Programme.

The review of the Scout Network concluded in July 2014 and the changes to the Programme and structure will be communicated later on in Spring 2015.

New Website

1 Apr 2014

Welcome to the new 1st Pocklington Scouts Website. We aim to use this version more than the previous website to make the most of the new features including an events calendar, document uploads and a photo gallery.

Some sections may decide to use different parts of the website more than others, for example the scouts may put copies of letters sent home on the website and the explorers might use their news section to let the unit know where to be each week but hopefully all of the sections will start using the photo gallery so that parents are able to see all the fun we are having on camps!
