Petworth & Pulborough Scout District

Building #SkillsforLife in West Sussex

Scout Network allows 18 to 25 year-olds who have an interest in both Scouting and their own personal development, and ultimately want to have fun, the opportunity to do so.


So why join Scout Network

When you reach 18 life starts to look a bit different. Often more opportunities and responsibility present themselves. This means that your scouting life needs to be flexible to fit in with how life maybe changing.

The Network is the perfect community for 18-25 year olds to continue Scouting or start their Scouting journey and join 20,000+ other members who are independently or working together on projects and events around adventure, international and community.

Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves with the support of a Scout Network Leader.

Example activities include:

Abseiling, award work, bowling, camping, circus skills, climbing, cooking, games, go-karting, gorge walking, hiking, pioneering, shooting and water sports.


So what are projects and events?

A project should have an impact beyond the immediate team who are working on the project. For a project to be successful the series of tasks need to be planned well, there should be a result/outcome, efficient resources and a timeline.

An event is a single activity that can take place at any given time; an event could be taking part in a climbing session. You may be inspired by this activity and decide to turn it into a project by hosting a weekend climbing session for local schools in your area. You can find out more about project and events here. The flexibility of doing events and projects is you can work on these at a time, place and  pace that suits you!


Joining

Young adults aged between 18 and 25 are eligible to register as Scout Network members, subject to a satisfactory criminal records check.

Cub & Beaver Paddlesport Days
08/09/2018 By Chris Evans

Our Paddlesport Team was out in force at the Wey & Arun Canal this summer with two taster days for Cubs and Beavers to have a go on the water in all sorts of exciting watercraft.  (There were a few suspiciously tall Cubs sneaking in too!)

The young people could try:

Rafts

Canadian Canoes

Stand-up Paddleboards

Sit-on Kayaks

Closed Cockpit Kayaks

The weather was fabulous and a terrific time was had by all.  It was hard work for the team but they are all looking forward to doing it again next year!

If you have an interest in water activities and would like to help young people to join your interest, and have a load of fun along the way then we'd love to hear from you! ddcevents@pandpscouts.org.uk

St Georges Day 2018
06/09/2018 By Chris Evans

Parham in Sussex at Storrington was the venue for our 2018 District get together. We held a short service with the colours flying, an address from our District Chaplin, Ben Martin and musical accompaniment with rousing choruses of When a Knight Won His Spurs, Sussex by the Sea and, of course, The National Anthem from Petworth Town Band.

Robert Sawyer, West Sussex Scouts County Commissioner, presented Pat Homer, District Secretary, with her Chief Scouts Commendation; Glyn Pullen, District Commissioner, received his Award for Merit and Kath Bridger, our previous District Commissioner, received her Bar to the Award for Merit.

Following the service everyone took part in a wide variety of activities. We had stalls to raise funds for our young people going to the World Jamboree in 2018 including s’mores, woggle making, sweets and pyrography which raised £80. Some of the groups brought activities including Ifold who helped people make dutch pancakes and S&S offered archery, badge making and biscuit decorating.

The District provided a soap box car track which caused hilarity all round (how hard can it be to drive in a circle?) and thankfully no serious injuries along with pedal cars and grass sledges.

The weather was superb and the District expresses its thanks to all those who made the day possible. Especially the Jamboree parents and the Scout Active Support.

St Georges Day 2019 will be Sunday 28th April (TBC)
