Ingleton Cubs rose to dizzy heights when they visited the @inglesport climbing wall this week. Spiderman would have envied the speed they climbed the coloured bouldering routes & abseiling down proved to be no problem for the agile youngsters @DIGregory999 @NYScouts @mark6mark

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.

Exciting New Venue & Date for District Camp

Using a leader’s suggestion, this year the District Team has ambitious plans to change the date of the annual camp from the traditional weekend in July to 26th - 28th April so that the St George’s Day celebrations can be combined with a residential experience. Not only that, but for the first time Cubs, Scouts and Explorers are all being invited, with a day visit for Beavers, too.

After running successful camps at Great Tower in the past, this year Camp George will take place at Waddecar Activity Centre, near Preston. Waddecar has many exciting activities on offer including canoeing, raft building, shooting, climbing, bouldering and orienteering, as well as challenge activities and games suitable for all ages. It also has a bunk house for the Cubs and camping grounds for the older members, so everyone is catered for.

SIESU Fire Lighters

If you need to keep warm, Settle Explorers are the ones to call as they have just learnt the art of fire lighting with flints! Under the expert supervision of Scout Leader, Dan Nelson, the teenagers took a while to convert sparks into flames but eventually achieved success!

Since 2014 The Scout Association has adopted an ambitious strategy enabling the Movement to be shaped by young people working in partnership with adult volunteers. As part of that plan, YouShape month was launched to encourage young people to make more decisions, shape their own programmes and take on leadership roles.

For example, Scouts can plan their own route for a hike, Cubs can show what activities they like best by drawing pizza slices of different sizes or, by voting in a Log Chew, Beavers can help decide what games to play each week. Taking this to a higher level, with time and support, Explorers can organise whole meetings and events for themselves, enrol as Young Leaders to influence the younger sections and become the voice of young people on committees at Group, District, County and National level.

Ingleborough youth members will have plenty of opportunities to take part in similar activities throughout this month.

Ingleton Explorers Discover the Joys of Kingsdale

On a sunny Sunday, three brave Explorers, two leaders and a very excited dog set off to embrace the fresh air and explore the wilds of Kingsdale. As the party wound their way up the Turbary Road, there was much debate about whether they should stop for elevenses. They opted for a quick snack stop before continuing up the fell towards the summit of Gragareth (627m). With good views and a chilly breeze, the group then started their descent and headed for some shelter for lunch. During lunch, the Explorers were treated to a reading from a book covering an 'essential' outdoor activity, while Adam sampled his novel lunch option to decide if it was actually edible. The jury's still out! After a steep descent, the party traipsed back via Jingling and Rowten pots for a quick talk about how deep the holes were! Terrifying! A fantastic effort on a challenging route. Roll on 2019 for bigger and better challenges.

Scouts Help Light Up Ingleton Church

In December, the display of glittering Christmas Trees in St Mary's Church was a new initiative showcasing all the village clubs and activities.

Ingleton Scouts entered a tree decorated with lights and a variety of knots made by the youngsters. Ingleborough District opted for a Scout-themed twig display, bedecked with lights, purple baubles and sectional logos, and very festive they looked, too!
