This year we helped 40,000 young people in Scotland aged 6 to 25 develop the social, practical and employability skills that will help them to succeed in life.

None of this would be possible without our incredible 12,000 volunteers.

Thank you! #skillsforlife

Good luck to all the riders in the 57th annual 3 Peaks Cyclo-cross event which takes place today. Watch out for members of 1st Castleberg Scout Group (Settle) who are helping event organisers as part of their support for the community. 🚴‍♀️@3peakscxrace @3peakscyclox @CravenHerald

All Fired Up at Settle’s Great Tower Camp

‘Fire’ was the theme for Settle Scouts recent highly successful camp at Great Tower on Windermere. Traditional campcraft was at the core of the event so the youngsters practised fire lighting techniques, made char cloth, sewed tinder bags and cooked their own meals all weekend.

They also had a list of challenges to complete, such as making a tripod, cooking without utensils and making fizz sticks. A highlight was a water fight when the Scouts attacked the Youth Commissioner, Tom Haigh. Everyone got soaked but that’s all part of the fun!

Settle Beavers Keep the Trains on Track!

On 11th July, Castleberg Beavers enjoyed a trip to the Settle signal box. Bob Swallow and his friends kindly volunteered to show them how the signals worked. All the Beavers had a go at ringing the bells and changing the signals.

Having had a good tour round the station, waving at trains as they came through, they marvelled that their signalling had actually worked! It was a lovely evening and the Colony is very grateful to Bob and his friends for their time and patience in showing them how it worked.

Cardboard Canoe Challenge

Clitheroe Canoeing Club set Settle Scouts and Explorers a challenge last month when they held a competition to make a cardboard canoe in which to tackle seven challenges around a pond!

The youngsters made three boats out of old boxes but sadly their vessels became soggy quite quickly. Nevertheless, the Scout’s catamaran won a trophy for the ‘Best Party Boat’ so their efforts were not all in vain. They are now all geared up for another attempt next year when they hope to improve their design to keep them afloat.

Community involvement not only gains publicity but it allows members to show Scouting’s values of respect, teamwork and co-operation.

A splendid example of this was on one sunny Sunday morning in July when, as part of the annual Ingleton 1940’s weekend, members of Ingleton Group took part in a Parade of Remembrance. During the ceremony, a wreath was laid by a Scout, escorted by two of our incoming DCs.

Remembrance events ensure that the sacrifices of those who served in both World Wars are never forgotten so this was a valuable experience for both Scouts and bystanders.

In July, Ingleton Cubs ventured to Clapham to visit the Cave Rescue Organisation depot where they were given the 'grand tour', including sitting in Land Rovers and playing with the radios.
They also helped set up and operate a pulley system to help save someone who had fallen from a height. After exploring the Land Rovers with the sirens sounding, they learnt how to use and carry a stretcher. With some careful lifting and some good instructions by the Cub at the head, they managed to carry each other round the depot!

A good night was had by all and a big ‘Thank You’ goes to CRO for all they do!

Network News!

When people first hear of Network they frequently ask, 'What’s that?' Then, after some explanation, they often say, 'Oh, so you just sit in the pub?' Well, they'd usually be right but last month a few of us decided to be a bit more adventurous and go up Ingleborough as a practice for a possible trip to the Lakes later in the summer!

After we set off from Cold Cotes, the cloud lifted, and we were soon at the summit! A summit selfie, some snacks and we were on our way back to Ingleton to...you’ve guessed it...the pub! What can I say? Least we'd earned it this time.

Tom Haigh, Youth Commissioner.

At the Ingleborough District Jumble Sale on Saturday, there was a good turnout of shoppers which ensured that the stalls, as well as the refreshments, tombola and raffle, all did well.

Grateful thanks go to everyone who donated goods and prizes, as well as their time, to help make the event such a success.

The combined efforts of the fantastic regular jumble team and the Scout supporters raised £500, which gives a much needed boost to District funds so that we can deliver Skills for Life to youngsters in the local community.
