Thursday, 16th June - 3rd Newbury Scouts

A quick visit into the St Nicolas Church coffee morning to browse today's coffee morning charity which was the Scouts!

I managed to resist the cake stall for a change but amongst a couple of other things purchased this fab mug which is about the same age as me and will look simply luminous in the bathroom!

The Scouts promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.

Scouting is a world-wide educational Movement for young people. It contributes to the fulfilment of their potential using a progressive and enjoyable values-based programme for personal development.

In Berkshire there are 8,357 (2009 annual census) young people and adults enjoying a wide range of Scouting activities. Scouting is mainly provided through over 130 local Scout Groups and District-based Explorer Scout Units. These Scout Groups and Units are organised through 11 Scout Districts, with links to each on the left hand side.

Incorporated as a charity by Royal Charter in 1912, The Scout Association seeks to provide young people with opportunities to participate in adventurous outdoor activities, learn team-building skills and develop new friendships. It is firmly committed to co-education so that boys and girls can develop together and meet the aims of Scouting through one programme.
