We have had a busy year again with on average at least 20 scouts all the time.

In June we camped at Broad Oak and walked in the Heathfield Carnival.

We started the new school year with a Kenya evening presented by Lesley.

In September we held an interview evening for new patrol leaders and assistants.

October started with a joint first aid evening with Broad Oak Scouts.

Other events included a spaghetti pioneering evening and also we held a ready steady cook evening in anticipation of the district event.

November saw us on the Ashdown Forest on a practice hike and also a trip to Hastings Gang Show.

Other events in 2008 included bike maintenance, paper planes, map reading, including mapping the hall and surrounding buildings and a bike hike to Hailsham.

In January we remade our code of conduct and have all signed it.

February saw us at the district swimming gala with a few good results.

We had a successful hike on the South Downs covering 10 miles.

In March we entered a team in The Overland Hike and the came in at 18th place.

April saw evenings on tent erection and St Georges Day Parade in Horam.

We camped at Natasha’s in May and nearly all of the Scouts took part in the Air Activities Camp at Broadstone Warren, finishing the month with rope making.

June has seen us setting up and helping to run the dog show again which was a great event.

We have also seen this year Bessie, Beth, Phil and Lewis receive the Chief Scouts Gold Award

 Cub Section report for 2009

This has been another successful year with the Cubs working to gain the following badges – map readers, naturalist, Athletes, personal safety, road safety, navigator, as well as the creative and fitness challenges. Many Cubs have worked individually to gain many more badges based on their interests and hobbies.

Over the past year we have taken part in a number of activities;-

May                 Broadstone fun day, a great and tiring day.

June                 Camp with Horam Cubs at Broadstone Warren, making the most of the activities available. 22 Cubs attended from Heathfield. Whilst at camp, we came back to help at the dog show.

October            Annual Football tournament at Blackboys School. We had a great morning with everyone trying really hard.

November         The cubs organised a Pokeman and Yu-gi-oh card swap evening. Money raised went to water aid.

Feb                  Annual swimming gala. We were runners up, having a great evening.

June                Cubbly Bug Camp at Broadstone Warren where 32 Cubs attended for the action packed weekend.

Thank you  to everyone who has helped over the last year. With so many Cubs there are times when we need those extra pair of hands. A special thank you to Lynn, Sarah and James for their help each week and Jackie Parker who always makes herself available especially for camps.

  Explorer Scouts are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth Section of the Scouting family. There are many types of Explorer Scout Units. Our unit is shared with Broadoak and Punnetts Town Scout Group. Hence the name  B.O.A.H. (Broadoak and Heathfield) Explorer Unit.

Explorer Scouts sometimes get the chance to work with other Explorer Scouts in the District, not just our Unit. By doing this, they get the chance to do many more actvities, not just the ones our Unit organises.

 If you are interested in joining please contact us.

 Beaver Section Report for 2009

The Beaver section has had another successful year and numbers have remained high, in fact we are full and have a waiting list.


The year started with two new helpers coming on board in the form of Anita Saunders and Helen Sheppard. Thank goodness they did or I dread to think what would have happened. They settled in really well and at Christmas both decided that as they were there they may as well come into uniform. What a team they make! And it is great to have them on board.


The Beavers have enjoyed a varied program throughout the year. They have learnt all about healthy eating, visited the fire station as part of their community challenge; earned their Emergency Aid badge and even made up their own recipes for puddings in the Ready, Steady Pudding challenge. The judges had a lovely tasting session as you can imagine.

The Beavers also had an opportunity to have a Beaver Sleepover this year. A couple of dads came along and we had a great time – Oh, so did the Beavers. They even slept in tents! – indoors that is, before any of you in the know, tell me that they are not allowed to camp!  Where is your imagination? Ours was running riot!!!!! Anyway it proved to be very successful and even the leaders and helps had a good time – didn’t you guys?


All in all it has been a brilliant year and my thanks go to those that have helped and the leaders, Hope, Dan and welcome back to Fiona. But thanks goes to Anita and Helen for taking over the leadership of this fine team.
