Petworth & Pulborough Scout District

As Scouts, we prepare young people with #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.

Take part in star count 2021
10/01/2021 By Nick Layt

In our District we are fortunate to have generally good conditions for star spotting with little light pollution. 

CPRE is conducting its annual survey to allow measurement of dark skies to be recorded across the country. This is a good opportunity to get our District on the map.

Taking part is really easy - on a clear night between 6 and 14 February, when it is really dark just find the constellation of Orion and record how many stars you can see. Orion is one of the most recognisable in the winter sky with the 3 stars that form Orion's belt being quite easy to spot.

Full instructions and the form to record your results will be on the CPRE website. For now you can sign up to register interest
