The District programme for 2010/2011 will be pulled together over the summer holiday. Explorers Scouts and Leaders are asked to forward any District programme ideas they would like to see happen to Steve Tupper before the summer break. Also—In light of the interest shown with the County Kandersteg trip,as well as some personal commitments (Wedding!), Steven is suggesting that the Gold D of E final expedition is pulled forward by a couple of days in the summer of 2010, Tthis will leave sufficient time between activities. The final expedition dates will now run from 21st July - 26th July. The slight change in dates will mean that Explorers / Network members may need to take 2 days off school, depending on inset days. Due to the exam period for most of the Explorers and Network members it is not envisaged that this will be a problem.
Entry forms for this Swimming Gala have been sent out to units. If you are interested and have not received one, then contact: justin.fisher1@ntlworld.com

In August 1982—to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Scouting, the Nottinghamshire Scouts carried an illuminated scroll around the County. On Monday 8th August, Central Notts. set up a display area on the banks of the River Trent at Gunthorpe, with displays of Canoeing, Camping, Pioneering, Cub Scout activities and a display by the 2nd Arnold Scout and Guide Band. At 7.00pm that day, members of South East Notts. carriied the scroll from their District and handed it over to us. The next day—Tuesday 10th August—teams of walkers carried the scroll around Central Notts. Gunthorpe, Burton Joyce (where we were met by the Mayor of Gedling), Lambley, Woodborough, Epperstone, Halloughton, Southwell (Met by the Chairman of Newark District Council). At both Burton Joyce and Southwell the scroll was signed by the civic leaders. From Southwell the walkers went to the banks of the River Trent opposite Farndon. Here we were met by the Farndon Sea Scouts. The scroll was handed over to them, and they rowed it back across the Trent to Newark District ready for the next day In each district the scroll was signed by a Civic Leader, and where we touched onto an adjoining County, the relevant County Commissioner Here memory fails me. I do believe that the scroll was then handed over to Headquarters for entry into the archives—but I am sure there is someone out there who will enlighten us.

DID YOU KNOW - At the closing ceremony of the 1st World Jamboree held at Olympia in 1920 - B-P gave the parting message. It is as full of meaning today as it was on that historic occasion. Here is an extract: “Brother Scouts. Differences exist between the peoples of the world in thought and sentiment, just as they do in language and physique. The Jamboree has taught us that if we exercise mutual forbearance and give and take, then there is sympathy and harmony If it be your will, let us go forth fully determined that we will develop among ourselves and our boys that comradeship, through the world wide spirit of the Scout brotherhood, so that we may help to develop peace and happiness in the world and goodwill among men”. There will be no edition of Scoutlook in August. Please sent any items for inclusion in the eptember edition to The Editor by 20th August. Any photos, posters, charts etc. should be sent as attachments and not embedded in the text. P. Bryan. Tel 0115 9557324 or jupeter17@ntlworld.com
