We’re calling on the government @10downingstreet to #BackYouth and deliver the £500 million Youth Investment Fund promised over a year ago.

See our letter to @thetimes here, signed by over 100 organisations, ambassadors and amazing supporters : https://t.co/hRmdFULylB (1/2)

What a super way for #Settle Scouts to raise funds, especially as we are now ordering so much online during the lockdown! Please support them as they hope to build a disabled friendly entrance to their HQ, the Drill Hall, on Castlebergh Lane. @easyuk @VisitSettle @settlecombushub

At 11.00am, whilst representatives laid wreaths on their behalf, Scouts across the whole country stayed safe at home to remember those who have fallen, as well as those who still have a battle to fight. @PoppyLegion @TimothyKidd @matthyde @NYScouts @UKScouting @Thisisingleton

Usually on #RemembranceSunday #Scouts of all ages from #Settle & #Ingleton come together to parade their Colours & remember those lost in battle. Sadly, today this isn't possible but our thoughts are still with those who gave their lives for others. @BritishLegionRX @NYScouts

Sadly Ingleton Scouts can't take part in the commemorations this year but the District Commissioner will be laying a wreath on their behalf.
'We will remember them.' ⚜️

Entries for #Settle Group’s photo competition to find images for their Drill Hall acoustic panels have now been judged. Congratulations go to 3 worthy winners, Malcolm & Chris Walker & Ken Lister. @settlecombushub @SettleWebsite @VisitSettle @NYScouts @Knights_Table_ @annefost 👏

From tomorrow in England there can be no face-to-face @UKScouting
Whilst in challenging times, let's not lose sight of what we do best as we continue to be there for young people when they need us most. Our 113 year history of resilience establishes us well for a bright future ⚜️

HQ will be working with NYA to see what todays announcement will mean for scouting. In meantime we are still at amber. Take care

Ingleton Group AGM

This year Ingleton Scout Group held their AGM via Zoom. The retiring Chairman, Carl Lis, thanked all those involved for their support during such unprecedented times. The section leaders described their exciting activities during the year and the Treasurer reported a healthy balance despite no subs being collected for many months.

As a thank you for his unstinting support spanning 25 years, Carl was presented with a specially commissioned hand-crafted decorative dish with the Scout logo embossed in the base. In his place as Chair, Paul Weaire was welcomed to the committee allowing Carl to step down to a lesser role.

The Group is now on the look out for a new Secretary and Treasurer so if you, or anyone you know, has an interest in administration or finance, or is willing to support the Group, please get in touch as the committee simply cannot function without officers and supporters.

Inspiring News from the Sections

It’s really encouraging to hear that over half of the Ingleborough sections have now had Covid Risk Assessments successfully approved so that they can meet face to face with small numbers of youth members when the current lockdown finishes.

Simon Shaw, Settle Cub Leader, reports that their last half term has been a busy one, getting used to meeting on Zoom rather than in the Drill Hall! All who have taken part have had fun braille code breaking, learning about Guide Dogs and making mug cakes. Having finished for half term with a pumpkin carving session, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed, he is very grateful to all the parents for supporting the Pack whilst restarting via Zoom!

The Settle Beaver leadership team has also organised some exciting Zoom sessions for their Beavers, and Explorers have continued with their very successful online meetings, too. In addition, Settle Scouts are receiving twice weekly emails from Dan Nelson, their troop leader, with exciting practical challenges to keep them active and Zoom meetings about to start during the lockdown.

Ingleton Cubs now have met once face to face and Scouts and Explorers are busily planning for the next half term, too, so all is looking good for our young people.

Thank you section leaders, you are doing a great job!

Castleberg Photo Competition Winners

When entries for the Settle Group’s initiative to find suitable images for their acoustic panels closed, a small group of executive members chose the best images to grace the Drill Hall walls for years to come.

Deliberations complete, congratulations go to three competition winners, Malcolm and Chris Walker and Ken Lister. To complete the set, the sixth panel will be the 1st Castleberg Scout logo.

Sadly, although installation can start soon, a celebratory event to announce the results with finger food and the local brass band, together with a public exhibition in the Drill Hall, will have to be postponed until the Covid restrictions are lifted.

The ScoutsFrom tomorrow in England there can be no face-to-face activity with young people or adult volunteers, in accordance with the decision made by the National Youth Agency. You can find full guidance on the The National Youth Agency website: nya.org.uk/.

Well done Ingleton Cubs! On the eve of another lockdown, you're the first section in Ingleborough District to meet face to face with a singsong round a warming campfire. What a super start! ... See MoreSee Less

This year, to comply with government restrictions, the District Executive had no choice but to move online for its AGM. Though not the usual social gathering, it successfully achieved all the Scout and Charity Commission requirements. Encouraging reports by the Trustees, District Commissioner and Explorer Units had been circulated in advance and the Treasurer commented further on the healthy annual accounts. The existing trustees remain in role but, sadly, the role of Secretary was not filled so the hunt is on for a replacement. Offers of help are welcome so do message us for more details.

All the volunteers were thanked by the Chair and District Commissioner for their dedication throughout this difficult year. A welcome guest to the meeting, the County Commissioner, Mark Edwards, also thanked everyone for their efforts to keep Scouting active through the pandemic.
