Friday 11th Feb, at our open evening, our pack presented a cheque for £650 to
Francis House ..This being the amount we have raised over the last few
months by various activities
all the cubs were given a smartie tube which they filled up every week with
pennies, 5ps etc

evening where they sold them to parents and friends.
few cubs got their parents to sell football cards

sold for £1 each. We had over 60 prizes donated from local shops ands
were well supported at our open evening by Parents, The County
Commissioner-John Smith, ACC Cubs-Lisa Heap and our DC for Stockport-Jean

I'm looking for 12 exceptional young people between 16 1/2 and 20 to join a year long expedition to the arctic. Our expedition website, www.arcticyear.org has just gone on line.

Chiselhurst Invicta - Uploaded by Bob Ulph 22/2/00
I was recently reminiscing of my times in the scouts at
invicta 1963 - 1968. Today I went to visit the old scout hut in Kemnal
woods, only to find that it was a pile of rubble. What a travesty that a
scout troop located in one of the best locations ever, is no more. Also
remembering all the hard work my father put in at the place, laying on
the water to the hut (which resulted in him having to hand dig a trench
of some 1000 yards), building the toilet block, entrance steps and a lot
Does anyone know what happened to the Chislehurst Invicta troop ?.

Hi, my name is Lesa and I am the Troop Leader for Junior Girl Scout Troop 280
and Cadette/Senior Girl Scout Troop 282. Last June we launched a project for
the Girl Scout holiday "Thinking Day" celebrated February 22 by all Girl
Scouts/Girl Guides around the world. We sent a Teddy Bear for a trip around
the world via girl scouts and guides. We have lost track of her and would
like some help locating her. The last message I received was from a young
qirl quide in Pakistan. As far as I know Daisey's intended destination from
there was Malaysa. You can see a picture of Daisey and read of her
adventures at Troop 282
and clicking on Daisey's page. I would appriciate it if everyone could keep
and I out for Daisey and contact us if you have any information,
