CONGRATULATONS!

DEDICATED AND INSPIRATIONAL SCOUT LEADERS BECOME CELEBRITIES FOR THE NIGHT

Scout volunteers from throughout Ingleborough District were delighted to gather at The Knight's Table in Settle, North Yorkshire, for a bumper presentation ceremony to celebrate the amazing work of 16 praise worthy and loyal recipients of national awards.

The proceedings began with Tom Haigh being awarded his Wood Badge having completed and validated twenty modules as part of his leadership training. Gemma Tyrie then received her 5-year service certificate and badge. Similar awards were then presented to Carl Unsworth and John Allan for service of 10 years and to Dick Chalmers for service of 20 years.

Earlier this year, several enthusiastic Ingleborough leaders and administrators had been nominated for Scout Association national awards. After the reading of glowing citations, the presentations began with Gemma Tyrie receiving a Commissioners Commendation, a local award given in recognition of her dedication and enthusiasm. Chief Scout’s Commendations for Good Service were then presented to Carl Unsworth, Gill and John Allan, Cathy Tazzyman, Jackie Rowe, Katrina Unsworth and Jane Nelson. Carole Ogilvie, Gill Pinkerton and Jenny Wood were also proud recipients of the Commendation but were unable to be attend.

The Award for Merit, given for outstanding service, were then presented to Dick Chalmers, Cherry Flitcroft and Dan Nelson. Anne Cox and Mike Fitzsimmons also received this award but were unable to be present at the ceremony.

The presentations concluded with the three District Commissioners speaking about the role of a volunteer and thanking everyone for their active involvement and commitment which has helped to make Scouting so successful in Ingleborough District.

Finally, Carl Unsworth, who is stepping down as a District Commissioner, was thanked for his unstinting hours of support and given a leaving present. A buffet and audio-visual presentation of Scouting photos from the last decade concluded the evening, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

What a fantastic achievement for all concerned – the whole District is super proud of its dedicated and loyal supporters and are delighted that they have been recognised in this way.

2000 Years of Shoemaking

In order to raise funds for the Drill Hall refurbishments, last month, Dan Nelson gave a fascinating and enlightening talk about the history of shoemaking. Over 40 members of the public who attended, plus a dozen helpers, were wowed by Dan’s passion for the craft, as well as his extensive knowledge of the subject.

At a previous meeting, members of the South Ingleborough Explorer Unit had baked fruit loaves and scones for the event which they served, along with teas and coffees, at the interval. By the end of the evening, the sale of tickets, proceeds of a raffle and donations had raised the magnificent sum of £392.

Ingleborough Community Centre Table Top Sale

It was good to see that Scouting was represented at the Ingleton Community Centre Table Top Sale when they booked a stall to sell handmade greetings cards and second-hand books.

Digging into the Lucky Dip paper shavings to find a present also proved popular with the younger members. The hall was bustling with visitors throughout the day so, as well as the sale of goods, there were plenty of good opportunities for networking with other stall holders and promoting Scouting.

1st Castleberg Funding Success

It was smiles all round for Settle Scouts as they celebrated a double funding success recently.

Firstly, on behalf of the Group, Cherry Flitcroft was delighted to receive a cheque from Settle Rotary Club for £6,300 to cover the cost of new cupboards which is part of the Drill Hall refurbishments.

Just a few days later, by shoppers choosing Castleberg Scouts as their Co-op sponsored charity, there were cheers again when an ex-Explorer, Alice Michelmore-Brown, a Settle Co-op representative, presented a cheque for £4,000 from their Local Community Fund.

Well done to all the supporters of the 1st Castleberg Group who are working so hard to provide an impressive building in which all the sections can thrive.

Snacking in Comfort!
Settle Explorers recently practised compass and pacing skills in the Malham Tarn area. Knowing what kit to have for different conditions is important, so, as it was a wet, cold night, their instructor, Jo Wulf, was quick to supply a group shelter for the youngsters to try out for real when they stopped for a snack. How good was that!

Highly successful All Night Challenge for Ingleborough Scouts!

On 16th November, National Hiking Day, over thirty Scouts, Explorers and their leaders rose to the challenge of walking an 8.5-mile route overnight, navigating totally in the dark and all returning safely in the small hours of the morning to Mealbank Hall in Ingleton for a well-earned breakfast.

Huge thanks goes to the dedicated adult volunteers who organised the event, led the teams, provided backup and kept everyone safe! Without their support, the event could not have gone ahead.

The youngster coped superbly with the wet weather, strenuous activity, difficult terrain and lack of sleep so they will remember the adventure for many months to come.

What better way to gain skills for life - well done to everyone who took part!

"At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them."

On Remembrance Sunday, to honour those who lost their lives in conflict, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and their Leaders paraded in both Settle and Ingleton. By supporting their communities at church services and the laying of wreaths, what better way to inspire young people to work together to create a more peaceful world.
