Your Scout Group Needs You!

18 Aug 2021

As we enter a new academic year and we hopefully make a fresh start after a turbulent 18 months, we are hoping to begin a programme of improvements to our much loved but somewhat dated Scout Hut. We would love to work with tradespeople from within our Scouting families, so if anyone in your family might be able to help please get in touch either by contacting your usual section leader, or email secretary@2ndtonbridge.org.uk
We particularly need the following trades: decorators (internal and external), plumber, electrician, kitchen fitter/supplier.

Ending a tricky term and starting a fresh new one

18 Aug 2021

After a tricky year with very little face to face scouting, 2nd Tonbridge had an action packed end to the summer term. Scouts, cubs and beavers all made good use of a very muddy Dene Park to add to their Hikes Away badge tallies. Cubs ended the term with their traditional hot dogs, while Tuesday and Friday night Beavers joined forces at Clip N Climb.

Return to scouting – Update!

Back in Action!

21 Oct 2020

It’s been a long time since we last met face to face, and with challenging times still ahead of us we won’t be returning to a full scouting programme just yet, but members of our Scout Troop were delighted to get together for wide games at Dene Park last weekend – some things just can’t be replicated on Zoom!
We’re very proud of our young people for respecting all the rules regarding Covid safety, and we loved getting back out into the fresh air for some proper scouting. We look forward …

Keep Calm, Stay Safe and Carry On

19 May 2020

Due to the unprecedented impact of Covid-19, all face to face scouting is currently suspended, in order to help our scouting family Stay Safe and to protect our amazing key workers.
However, scouting can and will continue! Members of all sections can continue to earn badges during lockdown – please send your pictures and videos to your section leader so that we can see what you’ve been up to. So far we have had a Tonbridge District group camp@home, and a virtual St George’s Day promise renewal, not to mention all …
