Scouting is back!

Date: 15th Sep 2021 Author: Jacky Bottrill

The last year has been very difficult for Scouting but we are back!

Swaledale Group have been out and about doing what Scouts do best – enjoying the outdoors, helping in the community and learning new things.

Beavers, Cubs and  Scouts with a little help from Leaders manned a Cake Stall at Reeth Market in September and raised over £300. Parents and supporters also helped by baking lots of delicious goodies. 





The Beavers and Cubs enjoyed a tennis sessions which was planned even before Emma Raducanu became an overnight sensation. This helped inspire all the youngsters play on at Reeth Tennis Club despite the rain.




Swaledale Scouts spent their first night back after the summer break learning about bats and other creatures at Grinton Churchyard – lots of creepy crawlies around.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
