Cubs Climbing High!

Ingleton Cubs rose to dizzy heights when they visited the Inglesport Indoor Climbing Wall last month. Spiderman would have envied the speed they climbed the coloured bouldering routes, and abseiling down proved to be no problem for the agile youngsters!

In March, food became a popular theme for the younger District members, though clearly the County Youth Commissioner couldn’t resist a taste, too!

Scout Rail Fair

At the recent Scout Model Rail Fair at the Primary School in Settle visitors were treated to trade stands for model railways, model road vehicles, two heritage railway companies and four operating layouts. Settle Scouts also had great fun demonstrating a Lego layout and steam engine.

As this was the last Scout Rail Fair organised by Dave Burrows, former ADC (Scouts), he and his wife, Mary Anne, former DCSL, were both thanked and presented with gifts by Dick Chalmers, the District Chairman. Dave’s passion and enthusiasm for modelling has been much in evidence since he started organising the event in 2003. Over the years, Dave and Mary Anne’s efforts have raised in excess of £6,000, including this year’s profit of £248, which is hugely appreciated by everyone in Ingleborough District.

Settle Beavers enjoyed eating pancakes in celebration of Shrove Tuesday and Ingleton Cubs relished making rice crispy cakes and baking pizzas for their Healthy Eating badge.

Big Sing

As a result of Cub Leader, Gill Gott AllanAllan, and District Beaver Leader, Gemma Tyrie, serving refreshments on behalf of Ingleton Scouts at the Ingleton Methodist Church Big Sing, Ingleton Scouts received a round of applause and a very welcome donation of £170.

An Ingleton Explorer gave a brief talk about Scouting, including the importance of involvement in the community, which was well received. It’s hoped that by reaching out into the village, more supporters, and possibly new leaders, will be recruited in the coming months and there is hope that the event will be repeated in July.

Showcase the Dales

In March, two leaders represented Ingleborough District at a ‘Showcase the Dales’ familiarisation workshop for Duke of Edinburgh and Scout expedition leaders. After the introductions, the participants moved to the car park for two active ice breakers, before returning indoors to hear from a National Park Ranger about navigating around the National Park, public rights of way and open access Land. Dave Skinner, North Yorkshire DofE Operations Officer, talked about the recent changes to rules.

Two local farmers gave their perspective on walkers travelling across their land and the damage they can do. Finally, Rae Lonsdale, from the Cave Rescue Organisation, explained how to call for assistance and CRO’s involvement in expedition mishaps.

The session culminated in a visit to the Cave Rescue Organisation depot and a tour of Ingleborough Hall. Throughout the day there was plenty of discussion and sharing of knowledge, making the event worthwhile.

Ingleton Beavers Join the Digi World!

Ingleton Beaver Leaders have recently teamed up with Ingleton Community Library to deliver an exciting two-night programme of digitally based activities in the library to help the Beavers complete their Digital Maker Badge.

Having chosen a book to read, each Beaver designed a suitable bookmark using a simple and inexpensive Raspberry pi-TopCEED desktop computer provided by North Yorkshire County Council. Beavers also had the opportunity to programme a micro:bit, which is an open source piece of hardware designed by the BBC for use in computer education. Having completed a simple coding exercise, the Beavers were fascinated by the patterns of flashing lights that they had created on the micro:bit.

Finally, several Beavers joined the library and existing members borrowed books so that they can complete the Reader Badge. The success of the initiative shows how useful it is to work in partnership with the community as both parties gain from the sharing of skills and equipment, as well as the favourable publicity.

Ingleton Scouts support Panto

In February Ingleton Scouts and Explorers supported their local community by ushering at the annual village pantomime, ‘Aladdin’. Welcoming and escorting the audience to their seats, collecting cups and tidying up litter are among the jobs the members are happily carrying out. Not only is their help greatly appreciated by the Ingleton Theatre Group but it’s an excellent way of promoting Scouting within the community, too.

Recently, Settle Beavers have enjoyed a varied programme including a treasure hunt and making catapults, as well as working towards their Navigator badge. A further highlight has been a visit from an Airedale doctor who helped the Colony members gain their Emergency Aid badge.

The newly reformed Settle Cub Pack has also enjoyed some interesting meetings this term. The themes, which have been varied and exciting, have included Burns’ Night Celebrations, Coding, Fencing and Map Reading, to name but a few!

So far, the Pack is only small so please try to spread the word that it’s now re-opened and the leaders, Joe and Becky, are ready to welcome new members every Tuesday from 6 00 - 7.30pm in the Drill Hall on Castleberg Lane. To contact the Leader, Joe Lord, ring 07814956393 for further details.

Ingleboro’ Explorer off to Poland!

Congratulations to Erin O'Connor from Settle Explorers who has been accepted as one of only 36 Scouts from across North Yorkshire to attend the European Jamboree next year in Poland. This once in a lifetime experience aims to bring together Scouts and Guides from all over Europe to celebrate Scouting and Guiding values, make new friends and strengthen our international community. The concept and the programme will be based on the “Be the Spark” groundwork which has been undertaken over the last four years as part of the Polish Scouting and Guiding Association’s 2023 World Scout Jamboree bid.

To take part, Erin attended a selection event in Thirsk where she had to show that she was worthy of a place by working as part of a team with people she had never met before. Tasks included making promotional videos and feeding the leaders, at which they all excelled.

Erin's next challenge will be to raise funds for the trip so she is hoping for lots of support from local members and sponsors to help her achieve her goal. If you would be willing to sponsor her by way of cash or gifts in kind, please do get in touch.
