Sunrise Sunset

On Sunday, 21st June North Yorkshire Scouts joined together to enjoy a full day of activities from sunrise to sunset.

The programme began with the County Commissioner. Mark Edwards, being joined by others at high points across the County. Tom Haigh, County and District Youth Commissioner, bravely got up at 2.30am to be on the summit of Ingleborough in time for the opening ceremony! Sadly, the sunrise here was shrouded in mist but at least the day was kicked off with an interesting start. The full sequence can be viewed on YouTube.

Throughout the day activities were streamed via YouTube. An early item saw Dan Nelson, Settle Scout Leader, taking us on an interesting foraging journey on Castleberg and around the lanes of Settle to inspire viewers to take a closer look at the amazing flora in our countryside. Dan’s knowledge is extensive so the video is well worth watching at www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkJaj2YIeXs.

Later the Forrow family enjoyed creating alien models and had fun in the kitchen making Rocky Road. The day was rounded off with a campfire and a ‘visit’ from a surprise celebrity, Tim Kidd, Chief Commissioner, who was welcomed by the County Commissioner.

Thanks go to everyone who took part in any way. Hope you all had fun!

SIESU Members Reach Out Across the World

Recently, the South Ingleborough Explorer Unit made contact with two leaders from an outdoor school in Thailand. One was born there, the other moved there about 3 years ago. Although the time of the meeting had to be adjusted to accommodate the six-hour time difference, through the magic of Zoom, the Explorers were able to ask about life in Thailand, where Scouting is part of the school system, what it's like to move there and other facts about Thai culture.

Have you enjoyed helping others during the lockdown?

Why not join the thousands of Scouting volunteers who have fun baking, cleaning, gardening, sorting kit, fund raising & supporting leaders?

Although face to face Scouting has not been possible recently, Ingleton & Settle leaders have continued to deliver an exciting programme of activities for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, and their headquarters have also needed to be maintained.

Send us a message if you think you might be able to help and would like more details. Everyone has skills we can use on a regular or occasional basis. Even if you can only offer an hour a month, or a day a year, we can find a suitable role for you so you can join our vibrant team to help young people gain skills for life!
