Our group recently received their SQS Excellence Award for 2013, this is the second year running for our group. We are delighted to hold this award and it is a credit to the group, youth members and our scouters who give up their time freely to run the programme a big thank you to all.

Durrow-ScoutsOur scout section took part in a National event POW Patrols online weekend recently, the scouts really enjoyed this challenge it was something new and fun to do.

Slieve Bloom Cub County Camp will take place on the weekend of 4th to 6th of April in Srahan. Both cub sections will be taking part in this event. For our Friday cubs, this is their Chief Scout Award camp and it is very important that they attend. We have twelve cubs taking up the award this year.

On the weekend 11th to 13th of April our Chief Scout Award Beavers will be taking part in their Chief Scout Award Camp, also in Srahan. The beavers will link up with Roscrea beavers for this camp and they will complete their 10km hike on the Saturday. We have eight beavers taking up the Award this year. The is the highest achievement that a beaver, cub scout, venture or Rover can get in their Section. We wish them all the best of Luck.
