HUGE thanks to @PearsFoundation and @DCMS for vital funding to help so many of our @UKScouting Groups and Units across England to continue their life changing experiences for young people. #CommunitiesCan

By @UKScouting Ambassador @astro_timpeake “As an astronaut, I know about confined spaces and why youth groups are a lifeline in lockdown” https://t.co/BoRHvkq12d

We’re aware of the latest Government announcement ​about reopening schools in England. We’ll work with the @natyouthagency (NYA) to see how this affects face-to-face Scouting. ​If there are any updates, we'll email members and update the website.

Happy Founder's Day - a huge thank you to all commissioners, leaders, assistants, helpers, trustees, supporters, plus our young people & their families, for the brilliant role they play in making Scouting so successful in the Dales #ThankTwo @TimothyKidd @CravenHerald @NYScouts

Over decades, huge efforts by scores of 1st Castleberg Scout volunteers has made Settle Scouting so successful. At this difficult time, please help them complete their project. @settlecombushub @VisitSettle @skiptonbs @SettleRotary @Settlefremason1 @CravenCouncil @northyorkscc

Volunteers needed to work with young people, manage Groups, set up Zoom, maintain halls & kit, share skills, raise funds, do admin etc. Even 1hr/month will help!
We need YOU now to help us change lives, who knows we might even change yours too! @Thisisingleton @ltcravenherald

To celebrate Australia Day #Ingleton Beavers learnt all about Uluru Rock, Aborigines, Canberra & the national flag. Then, using craft materials, they made a 3-D fish tank to look like the Great Barrier Reef. What a fun night! @AusHCUK @Thisisingleton @DigitalScoutsUK @NYScouts

‘Get on Yer Bike’: In 2020, a Rambler's Challenge to walk or run 200 miles or cycle 400 miles over four months was created for @NYScouts Network members. County & District Youth Commissioner, @yorkieboy12 rose to the challenge with great success. Well done, Tom! @BritishCycling

North Yorkshire ScoutsJourneying On Together - Sunday 25th April - Note the Date
We are going to hold what we hope will be our last online County Day during the Covid-19 period. We will hold a series of online events throughout Sunday 25th April, starting on the hour at 9am, 10am, 11am, then 1pm, 2pm and culminating in a St George's Day service and renewal of promises at 3pm.

What is also really exciting is this event will be a joint one with Girl Guiding across the County, so has the potential to be a mammoth event! We hope this will be our biggest and best and we can celebrate the journey we will now take together to return to more normal Scouting and Guiding.
So, we need two things from you:

1. The offer to run an activity. We have had some amazing creative and practical activities in the last year. So, how about offering one of those fantastic activities you have run in your section that we can all share in? We start each session on the hour and sessions can last any time between 20 minutes and 50 minutes. You can do it live or if you want it can be pre-recorded and broadcast during the day. It would be great to have as many activities each hour as we can muster.

If you want to do this, contact the County Commissioner at cc@nys.org.uk by Friday 12th March, with the following information:
 Name of your activity
 Any materials participants need to gather before hand
 Which section is it suitable for or is it for everyone (we would welcome activities for all sections, including leaders)
 What time slot(s) you would prefer
 If you are doing your session live or recorded

2. We would also like to have a badge for the event. It needs to have the theme of the day 'Journeying on Together' along with 'Guides and Scouts of North Yorkshire, April 2021.'
We need a great design that symbolises us moving on.
Entries to cc@nys.org.uk by Friday 12th March.

So, let's make this the last, biggest and best online event and look forward to the days when we can all meet together once again.

It’s Founder's Day! Each year on 22nd February, the birthday of our Founder, Robert Baden-Powell, we celebrate the creation of the Scout Movement as a truly amazing force for good! This year, through the #ThankTwo initiative, we are being encouraged to show our gratitude to people and groups of people for the amazing role they play in Scouting.

The Ingleborough District Team would therefore like to thank all commissioners, leaders, section assistants, occasional helpers, trustees, supporters, plus all our young people and their families, for their hard work and dedication in making Scouting so successful in the Dales.

We are also very grateful for all the support we receive from the County, Regional and National Teams, which do so much for us, often behind the scenes and without recognition.This is "A thank you message from Tim Kidd" by The Scout Association on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

Thanks to the Craven Herald & Pioneer, their brilliant coverage of the 1st Castleberg Scout Group has featured the huge efforts of scores of volunteers, spanning two decades, to renovate their Drill Hall headquarters on Castleberg Lane, and to re-energise Scouting in the town.

The article flags up the generous offer of free Scouting throughout 2021, the history of the Drill Hall, and the extensive upgrading of the facilities to bring it up to modern standards. To complete the plans for the future in order to make the venue disabled friendly and more suitable for community use, the hope is that funders will look kindly on the Scout Group and that new volunteers will also be recruited to join the existing enthusiastic team.

Good luck, Settle Scouts!

‘Get on Yer Bike’ for the Ramblers Challenge

Last September, a new challenge was created for Network members across North Yorkshire. The idea was to either walk or run 200 miles or cycle 400 miles over the course of four months. County and District Youth Commissioner, Tom Haigh rose to the challenge with great success.

Starting the challenge in September when the weather was mostly warm and dry was good fun! Routes included to Settle, Morecambe, Arnside, round the Dales and beyond! On a particularly long day, Tom headed up through Kingsdale, Hawes, Buttertubs, Kirkby Stephen, Sedbergh and back. He was seriously saddle sore as a result but the bacon butties and café stops half way were good motivators.

Soon the sunshine was replaced with grey skies, short days and wet, muddy roads. The rides got shorter, but, with the finish line in sight, his final ride was only 15 miles, but it was done!

Well done, Tom! Cycling needs mental, as well as physical, toughness in the cold days of winter so you’ve set the bar high!

“We've turned our Beavers into superheroes!”

Settle Beavers had great fun first imagining being their superheroes with special powers and gadgets, and then drawing a picture of them, before making accompanying costumes. As you can see from the images, the Beavers responded really well to the challenge so many have earned the Creative Activity Badge in the process.

Well done, 1st Castleberg Beavers, for using your imagination.
