Open Evening – Tomorrow 8pm

A reminder that we’re having an Open Evening tomorrow, Tuesday 1st May @ 8pm in our Scout Den. If you’re interested, please drop in for a chat.

Scouting is a volunteer organisation and if you are interested in helping us out in anyway – admin or joining as a leader that would be brilliant, full training and support is available.


Open Night – May 1st 8pm

Your Scout Group needs Your help.

We’re having an Open Evening Tuesday 1st May @ 8pm in our Scout Den.

Whether you’re a former Raven Troop Scout (Once a Raven, Always a Raven!) or have never been involved in scouting at all…. Everyone is welcome! We’re sure we can find a role to suit you!

Scouting is a volunteer organisation and we’re always on the look out for people who are interested in helping develop and support the Scout Group.

There are many ways you can help, even if joining a section as a leader isn’t your cup of tea. There are ‘back-office’ roles, that will free others to focus on the Scouting Programme. In particular, we are looking for support in refreshing our main fundraiser, the Swords Trade Directory. If you have a background in marketing/sales or can give a few hours to drum up new advertisers, talk to us.

Of course, if you are interested in joining a section as a leader that would be brilliant, full training and support is available.

Don’t worry if you believe you can’t make a full commitment we all lead busy home and work lives, there are many ways you can help in a way that can suit your availability.

Please talk to any of the leaders, send us a message here or come down to our open evening to find out more.

Hi all,

A reminder that we will be having our annual Ready Steady Cook event tomorrow, Saturday 7th April. We will be meeting at 12 noon and hoping to finish around 4pm.

Patrols will compete against each other and be assessed in a number of areas, including:

  • Teamwork
  • Hygiene
  • Pioneering skills (building your fire)
  • Fire skills (starting and maintaining a good fire)
  • Food taste
  • Food presentation
  • Cleanup

There is a chance of rain so every scout must have hiking boots, rain trousers and rain coat (with a hood).

See you all tomorrow!
