Hello scouts and parents,

This week we will be playing Quidditch at Graves Park.

Drop off (7pm) and collection (9pm) will be at the bottom entrance of Graves Park off Derbyshire Lane by the Graves Park Pavilion (Cobnar Rd, Sheffield S8 8QA). 

Please dress weather appropriate, no uniform.



Cooking on camp stoves

Hi scouts and parents,

This week we will be cooking pasta and sausages (within dietary requirements) with tomato sauce and cheese (optional) at the Scout hut 🙂

Very important: if you have a camping stove it needs to be brought to scouts with you. Without the scouts who said they has access to camping stove’s bringing theirs down we won’t be able to cook.

You will work in groups to make this easy meal. Full uniform.





Litter Picking

Hi scouts and parents,

This week we will be litter picking on Millenium Park again. Of course there will be time either side for play, games and foolery. Meant to be nice weather too so should be good.

We have the required PPE but please ensure you have sturdy shoes on. Neckers are required to be worn.

Meet at the entrance on Oak Street at 7pm and collection will be in the same place at 9pm.

See you tomorrow,



Rivelin Valley walk

Hi all,

This Tuesday we will be going for a walk along Rivelin Valley, hopefully with a wide game along the way.

Please drop off Scouts at the Rivelin Valley cafe on Rivelin Park Rd, S6 5GE at 7pm and collect at the car park on Rails Road, S6 6GF at 9pm.

Scouts will need full waterproofs (weather forecast rain), a warm layer, walking boots, water and a snack (optional).

If there are any queries or if you are struggling to make lift arrangements please contact Lucy 🙂
