2017 - 2018

The Group enjoyed lots of growth through word of mouth especially in its Beavers and Scouts sections.  Lots of focus on adult volunteer recruitment as a result of the growth and following Chris Butterworth (Bagheera)'s semi-retirement.  We welcomed Sarah-Jane Anderson (Chipmunk) and Gloria Smith (Otter) to our Beavers section.  We welcomed Jo Lane (Raksha) and Stephen James (Sahi) to our Cubs section.  And we welcomed William Lucy (Wolf) to our Scouts section.  

 

Iain Roy (Skip) took on running the Cub Pack in September, and Chris Butterworth was presented with thank-you gifts on behalf of the Committee and the Group at the AGM as he stood down from this role.

 

Summer Camp 2018 was at Ferny Crofts with 14 scouts joining us for a week of activities.  One of the hottest summers on record.

In the early 1970's a second Cub Pack was started, and the two Cub Packs were known as Orion and Pegasus.  Whilst we now just have the one Cub Pack, in a nod to this part of our history our two activity rooms in our HQ are called the Orion Room (Beavers), and the Pegasus Room (Cubs and Scouts).

 

Liz Griffiths was Cub Scout Leader of one of the packs until she became Assistant District Commissioner (ADC) for Cubs in 1984.

A new headquarters (which we still use today) was opened on October 30th, 1965 by Frank Hamel.  Our headquarters was build by craftsmen of the 1st Parachute Battalion.  Material costs were raised by the Group with assistance from 4th Farnborough Guides and Brownies, from a grant by the Hampshire Education Committee, and with the generous and material assistance of the Building Industry Youth Trust.

1965 - 1966

1964 - 1965

On 7th March an application for a loan of £10 was made for purchase of equipment and this was approved subject to acceptance of registration.

 

3rd Farnborogh re-opened in March 1949 with Registrartion Number 27163 and has been continuous ever since.  The Group was registered as 3rd Farnborogh (Hawley Lane) which remains to this day our official name, though we now no longer use the Hawley Lane designation.

On 30th May 1949, formation of a Scout Section was approved, and in July 1949 a warrant application for Mr D Curran (Assistant Scoutmaster) was approved, followed by applications for Mr D. Beeswing (Assistant Scoutmaster) and G F Naylor (Assistant Scoutmaster) later oin the year.
