Suspension of face-to-face activities

Given this guidance, all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events must be suspended from tomorrow, Tuesday, 17 March 2020. This suspension applies to young people and adults and will be until further notice.

We must continue to respond to the developing situation in a calm, measured and appropriate way. We will continue to follow official guidance. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority. That is always at the heart of our decision making.

Remembrance Day Parade 2019

Each year all sections of the Group join together to attend the Family Remembrance Day Service in the Methodist Church. We meet in the Methodist Hall at 10:35 am for the 10:45 am service. Parents are very welcome to attend. There will be a collection during the service. After the service, we walk down to St Edburg’s Church, where we join the Town Parade. The parade leaves St Edburg’s at about 12:00. We then march around the Market Square and return to the Causeway where the parade will be dismissed. Please collect your child from outside St Edburg’s at about 12.20.

All members need to be in full smart uniform. This includes black school shoes (if possible) and dark school/scout trousers or a formal style navy blue or black skirt – no jeans, leggings or jogging bottoms, please. The weather can be very cold, especially while we are waiting outside St Edburgs for the parade to start, so the children may bring coats. If it is dry, we will parade without coats (the children can carry them) so please wear something warm underneath the uniform top. Scouts may wear their navy 7th Bicester fleece with the Scout shirt (not the polo shirt). We only parade twice a year so we would like all our members to try and attend. If you need to drop your child off earlier or pick up slightly later, please email and we will see if we can accommodate this.

Day 2 of Delft camp coming to an end. Sun was out all day with a keen wind. The first challenge was for the patrols to come up with a Dutch-themed menu for breakfast and dinner and then it was off to the Jumbo supermarket to purchase the ingredients. Now waiting for the first offering. After the supermarket, it was off on the tram to the coast. Various length of bike rides (including tandem) in the sand dune nature area walks along the beach, with everyone changing around and having a go.

St Georges Day Parade


Sunday, May 5th Meet at the north end of Sheep St (Methodist Chapel end) at 1:50 pm. The parade will move off at 2:00 pm to march to St Edburgs Church for a service at 2:30 pm. 3:30 pm we leave St Edburgs to parade back to Sheep Street via Market Square where a salute will take place. Finish in back in Sheep Street at 4:00 pm. Please note return times are approximate. The Group only parades twice a year so we expect all our members to attend in smart uniform with school trousers. St George is the Patron Saint of Scouting as well of England.
