24th World Scout Jamboree – Evan is going!

Category: Beavers,Cubs,Events,Network,News,Parents,Scouts — rootadmin @ 9:39 pm

Congratulations to Evan on being the only young person from RCT to be selected to attend the 24th World Scout Jamboree ( ) in the USA in two years’ time. Evan successfully attended the All Wales Selection Camp on the weekend and received notification of his place today.

Now the fundraising will begin and he has to raise over £3500 to attend the event, he has less than two years to raise the money and the Scout Group will be supporting him in his fundraising efforts.

If anyone has any fundraising ideas or would like to donate some money towards this once in a lifetime opportunity for Evan please feel free to contact John.

To kick start Evan’s fundraising we would like to run a bus trip to Bath on Saturday 9th December and if we can get 14 people to attend this would make the trip viable. The cost of the minibus would be £15 per person (contact John on 07976623950)

75th anniversary next year – or this year?

Category: Beavers,Cubs,Events,Explorers,Network,News,Parents,Scouts — rootadmin @ 7:35 pm

1st Pontygwaith Scout Group celebrates their 75th anniversary next year and since 1966 there has been a totem Pole in the hall depicting some of the Groups history.

As far as we are aware the totem pole was actually a pit prop from the local mine and we would like to find out more about how the group came to have it and which mine it came from. We are also looking for a local artist that could help the scouts update the pole as there a number of events we would like to add to the pole.

Any help much appreciated.

We also have some vacancies in all sections for young people between the ages of 6-14 years of age and would also be interested in hearing from any adults who would like to volunteer.

Raft building at Daerwynno on Friday 1 st July.
