Nottinghamshire Scouts


Following the success of the 2015 Gang Show we are now preparing for the next show which is pencilled to start on 27th February 2017.

With a cast of nearly 200 supported by a backstage crew drawn from the Scout & Guide Associations of Nottinghamshire, 'Gang Show' is the largest and longest running "amateur"show held at Nottingham's Theatre Royal.

We are now looking to appoint the Producer and Production Team for Gang Show 2017, and seek suitable applications for this unique opportunity to be at the forefront of a major activity for Scouts and Guides in Nottinghamshire.

If you are interested in a suitable role then complete the attached application form and we will be in touch. Discussions will be held with applicants during August following which the appointments will commence from September.

If you would like to discuss the role requirement then please contact John Asplin


Year of AdventureThis month we are kicking off the Cub Scout Centenary celebrations with a year of adventurous programme activities, called the Year of Adventure. Each month of 2015 will have a different theme and packs are encouraged to have a go at two or more activities that are a little bit different from the norm. March is the 'All Things 100' month.

The Scout Association have put together a fantastic resource to help leaders put their 2015 programmes together but our very own leaders from Nottinghamshire have added to this with dozens more ideas for each month here. Together both of these links make a great list of suggestions, helping leaders to deliver their own version of the Year of Adventure.

If you would like to contribute additional ideas to share with the rest of the county then you can do so at any point during this year.

How many adventures can your Cubs have each month?

Cub Scout CenteneryToday we are launching plans for the next two years of Cub Scouting as we lead in to the centenary celebrations. Here is a pack of information that will help you build a programme around this impressive century milestone.

This pack contains details on the Year of Adventure in 2015, the Centenary in 2016 and the county events we shall be putting on to support you throughout this time.

I hope you will join me in promoting what is sure to be a thrilling couple of years in Cub Scouting and I look forward to working with you all to deliver it.

What a Year of Adventure it has been so far!

As you know, each month of 2015 has been given a theme leading up to the celebrations for the centenary of Cub Scouting. It has been great to see so many Cubs doing so many exciting activities these past few months that are just that little bit different and more adventurous than before.

As detailed in our Cub Scout Centenary booklet, we are providing three events to help support you in providing these Year of Adventure activities that Cubs around the UK are taking part in.

They are:

Water Activity Day, Walesby Forest, 28th June & 12th July

Air Activity Day, Newark Air Museum, 15th August

Up High Activity Day, Hollygate Scout Camp, 20th September

Cub Scouts and their leaders from all over Nottinghamshire are invited to attend. Booking is open now through the county office:

Looking forward to seeing you there!
