Celebration of Service 2019

1st July 2019

Nominations for the Celebration of Scouting Awards 2019 are now open with groups and volunteers encouraged to put themselves and their colleagues forward.

The awards, now in their third year, recognise and celebrate Scouting successes throughout Wales.

There are eight categories of awards:

28th June 2019
Swansea Pride

June is Pride Month, a month to celebrate gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and asexual people, plus all other sexual orientations and genders.

To coincide with this, we have caught up with Louisa Shapton, a member the Apollo 7 Explorer Scout Unit, who attended her first Pride event earlier this year.

On May 4th, 17-year-old Louisa along with 12 explorers, leaders and support members attended Swansea Pride.

28th June 2019
Woodland clean up

A group of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from 5th Neath Bryncoch have drafted in the support of the local community to rescue an unloved woodland area in Bryncoch Neath.

The Scouts Group partnered with local environment group Clean Cymru, Neath Port Talbot Council and local Councillors for the woodland clean, which took place on May 31st.

During the day, 50 people took part in a rubbish collection and area tidy up, before hearing a habitat talk by an Environmental Officer.
