It was great to see so many young people and adults supporting Scouting by attending the Parade to honour the patron saint of Scouting – St George.
The weather held out and we were able to Parade in the sunshine.
There are some photos on the website here.
We also feature on the Derbyshire TImes website;

Six of our Cubs volunteered to take place in the Premier Team Challenge event that took place on 22nd March 2014. Each pack from the Chesterfield District are invited to enter a team, so competition was fierce!
In the event, each team did 12 challenges through the course of the afternoon, based on Scouting skills, teamwork and general knowledge.
The six Cubs from Wingerworth worked very hard and combined well as a team to earn top marks during the afternoon and were awarded the competition shield for first place.

Well done to all the Scouts who took part in the Chilly Challenge camp over the weekend.
As well as below zero temperatures overnight on Friday, the Scouts had to cope with no mains water on Saturday.
Not to worry though – Scouts are good at surviving without washing!!

The Scout Panto was again a huge success.  A selections of photos have been added to the website here.
All remembered their lines (almost).  All turned up to rehearsals (almost).  All cast members are still Scouts (almost).
A huge thanks to all the Scouts for their excellent performance, all the families for the exceptional costumes, all the Leaders for their patience and backstage/technical roles.
A big round of applause for James who wrote the script and pulled it all together.

Last week, 3rd Wingerworth Scout Group received a donation of a brand new Patrol tent.  The tent was donated by one of the local Freemasonry Lodges.  Scouts and Cubs will greatly benefit from the use of this tent on future camps.
Many thanks to the Freemasons for their generous donation.
