THE VOICE OF SCOUTING IN BRISTOL SOUTH DISTRICT


                             Sixteenth Edition, Spring 2010

Welcome to the latest edition of LOOK SOUTH, the Newsletter that aims to keep our
members and supporters “in the picture” of what‟s going on in our District.

We report a small drop in our total membership for 2010 to 1116 (from 1142 last year).
A break down is included in the report from our „Scout Council‟ inside this edition.

The District Management Team (DMT) have been kept very busy so far this year with the
latest round of RAG reviews with those Group Scout Leaders (GSL‟s) and Chair people who
felt that they wanted a discussion. Time for those was juggled with the evenings that the
selection of our District representatives to next years the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in
Sweden, took place (see also later report).

An update relating to the „Avon 2011 Jamboree‟ can also be found inside this edition of LS.

Regular readers will recall that 2010 is the year when we are promoting „adult recruitment‟
in our District. This was the agreed way forward and was a consequent of points made in
many of the „where are we now‟ (RAG) assessments completed by Groups in our District.
Work has already been started by some of the neighbouring Groups (hubs) and we hope to
receive reports of activities in later editions.

In the meantime, congratulations to Karen Paddock of 229th who won the 1st round of the
County Car stickers competition, which regular readers will recall is part of the „Just Ask‟
campaign. Other recruitment competitions are underway – e.g. best website + extreme
sleeping comp‟

The „Big Adventure‟ has been relaunched, that‟s the one to get parents etc along to camps
and events. Refer to your copies of „Scouting‟ magazine.

In the past we have featured a history / profile of some of our Groups in „Look South‟. The
editor would welcome more and to that end, a brief history of the 107th Whitchurch is
included in this edition. Please think about doing something similar for your Group.

We confirm that District Explorer Scout Commissioner (DESC) and (MDM) Media
Development Manager appointments remain outstanding. We also continue to seek a new
District Secretary. If you have any suggestions, then please pass them on to any member
of the DMT and /or District Executive.

We regret to report that the 275th (Brislington URC) Group has closed.

By now you should know about „IN TOUCH‟ the new Home Contact System. Please refer to
your GSL or Group contact for information.

Did you see a copy of previous editions of LOOK SOUTH? If not, please see your GSL as
they were all issued with copies for distribution or see our web site
www.bristolsouthscouts.org.uk. We aim to publish four times a year.

From the District Management Team; Bob Stanfield, Nick Winter and Bob Hussey.

                      APOLOGY AND CORRECTION
In the last newsletter, Look South 15, Kat Allen was listed in an article (on the front
page) as an ACSL. This is incorrect, she is actually an ASL.

                    DISTRICT BEAVER SLEEPOVER
In October, 45 Beavers from 21st, 175th, 229th, 107th, & 255th joined together for a
Sleepover at the Lovell Centre, Woodhouse Park; although they were split into two
nights (… big sigh of relief …).

We ran the same basic programme over both nights; so after settling into their rooms
and a quick welcome, the Beavers went for a night hike around Woodhouse Park.
After supper, and some handicraft, games or a film, the Beavers went to their rooms
and were not heard from for at least five minutes. But eventually, there was quiet
from all the rooms.

The following morning started with a wash (well that‟s what the programme called
for), before a breakfast of cereal, toast and a bacon sarnie.

During the rest of the day activities included tracking, tent pitching, scavenger hunt,
craft, wide game, knotting, games and lots of playing in the muddy park next to the
Lovell Centre. Lunch consisted of the Beavers preparing their own pita bread pizzas
using a selection of healthy foods as toppings (quite messy but lots of fun).

After sorting the jumble of lost property, we said good bye to each other and headed
home for some much needed sleep; and I expect that the Beavers were quite tired
too.

Thanks to all the leaders and parents who made the two sleepovers possible, and
especially to Debbie Burnett for helping me on both nights.

By the way, Eastwinds has been booked for the 9th to 10th October 2010 for
another District Sleepover.

David Ashworth (davidashworth@blueyonder.co.uk) is taking on the job of archery
adviser for the County. In County we have no record of people with GNAS (Archery)
qualifications. It would be a big help if you could let David have contact details for any
GNAS leaders that you have in your Districts so that we can start to build up the
Archery opportunities for Scouts in the County. Your assistance will be greatly
appreciated says Alan Dempster, ACC (Activities)

           22ND WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREE
                  SWEDEN 2011
         This is the World Scout Jamboree, Simply Scouting!

                  "THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME"

The 22nd World Scout Jamboree will take place in Rinkaby, Sweden, between the
27th July and the 7th August 2011. It will be an experience of a lifetime for all those
lucky enough to be part of it. A green grassy field outside the town of Kristianstad in
Southern Sweden will be turned into a bustling town of more than 30,000 people.

The Jamboree is open to all those eligible, regardless of financial status, physical
ability, gender, personal background or award achievement. Participants will have
been born between 25 July 1993 and 27 July 1997.

36 places have been allocated to Avon with 4 for Bristol South District. A County
wide „adventure‟ day was organised at Woodhouse Park (WHP) as part of the
selection process.

Nine young people from Bristol South who had declared an interest in representing
our District took part. They were all then interviewed by the DMT and rated on their
individual suitability. Because of the very high standard of all nine, the final decision
was very difficult. The points awarded, were added to those gained at WHP and the
decision taken to offer our four places to Abigail Moran, Jamie Cockle (both from
SuperNova) and Harry Lewis, Daniel Attree (both from 127th St Annes)




Being a participant at a World Scout Jamboree is an incredible once in a lifetime
opportunity! Over the course of ten days they meet people from all over the globe,
take part in amazing adventures and experiences and be challenged to think about
global issues in a new light.

Participants will make life-long friends, learn from other cultures and beliefs, share
their own knowledge and experience what it's like to live in beautiful Swedish nature.

      SPORT RELIEF GRANT HELPS PUT SCHOOL AND
                 SCOUTS ON TARGET
                  Bristol Evening Post Thursday, February 11, 2010,

There can't be many schools in the country which can boast their own beach
volleyball court, caving system and mountain bike track.

But from a small grant of £1,500, a local scout troop have helped transform one of
Bristol‟s Primary Schools and have grand plans for the summer as demand for their
facilities soars.

Blenheim Scout Group approached Cheddar Grove School in Bedminster Down to
use their grounds as a base in return for allowing the school to use any facilities they
built.

And with a modest initial grant from Sport Relief in 2006 they set about building an
archery range. Then they found funding for an all-weather five-a-side pitch, then a
mountain bike track.

Now the industrious group are branching out further, building a beach volleyball court
this summer and exploring the possibility of installing a man-made caving system.

Group scout leader Allan Burnett told the Evening Post: "I think we are now starting
to see the fruits of an awful lot of hard labour. The money from Sport Relief was a
kick start. We had a vision and that £1,500 was a catalyst for where we are now."

Around 70 children a week make use of the floodlit archery range once the scouts
take responsibility for it after 5.30pm each day – and the police have recognised its
benefits for the wider community.

Police community support officer Michelle Kennedy will be running bi-weekly
sessions at the centre from next month to help get kids off the streets and deliver
social services.

"The facility is really being hammered," said Mr. Burnett. "But that's good. It means
the money is well spent. It is about giving people opportunities."

Head teacher Paul Jeffery told the Evening Post: "It is a unique partnership in terms
of bringing sport and health to the community. The children are very, very fortunate,
and other schools and groups are now benefiting as well."

And if you run a local group working in a disadvantaged area of the city you can
apply today for a Community Cash Grant of up to £1,000.

For more information on the grants go to www.thisisbristol.co.uk/sportrelief.

         107th BRISTOL (WHITCHURCH) SCOUT GROUP
                 BRISTOL SOUTH DISTRICT, AVON SCOUT COUNTY,
                   MAGGS LANE, WHITCHURCH, BRISTOL BS14.

                      A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE GROUP
The 107th is an amalgamation of the 144th Bristol (1st Whitchurch) operating since 1946 in the
hall adjacent to St. Nicholas Church, Church Road, Whitchurch and the 23rd Bristol (2nd
Whitchurch) Scout Groups.

March 1957 saw the commencement of the 23rd in their temporary headquarters at the
Hengrove Athletic Club (then in Ridgeway Lane, Whitchurch) whilst they built their new H.Q.
in Maggs Lane on land leased from The Bathavon Rural District Council. The lease
commenced on 24 June 1958. The land was eventually purchased by the 107th Group in
February 1982.

Work must have been nearly complete in October 1960 when the (then) Chief Scout, Sir
Charles MacLean opened the hut in Maggs Lane during a tour of Bristol.

The group files show that in January 1961 the main building was considered complete at a
cost of £1,575 and that a further £450 was needed to complete the work.

September 1966 saw the amalgamation of the 1st and 2nd Whitchurch Scout Groups (144th
and 23rd respectively) and this „new‟ group became the 107th Bristol (Whitchurch) meeting in
the Maggs Lane HQ.

The present neckerchief colours for 107th, green with a white border are a combination of
the colours from the original groups. The green from the 144th and the white from the 23rd,
whose other colour, was black. The title of the newsletters, „The Magpie‟ recognises the
original 23rd magazine name taken from their neckerchief colours, black and white.

The 1st Whitchurch Cubs became the „A‟ pack (Wednesday Cubs) and the 2nd Whitchurch
Cubs, the „B‟ pack (Tuesday, later Monday Cubs). This „B‟ pack eventually closed, due to
lack of leaders in Oct‟ 1987. 107th Cubs continue on Wednesdays.

The Scouts from the 144th and the 23rd combined to form a new troop meeting on a Friday.
This Friday troop closed, again due to a lack of leaders in Oct‟ 1988. Thursday (later
Tuesday) Scout Troop was formed in September 1977 and continues, now meeting on
Mondays.

June 1992 saw the start of a Beaver Colony (which continues, meeting every Tuesday) and
during April 1993 „Yeoman‟ Venture Scouts, a mixed unit joined the 107th Group. They were
formed in 1986, originally as a District Unit and eventually merged with a District Explorer
Unit „Super Nova‟

At the end of 1993 additional adjacent land was purchased and became the „second field‟. A
fence was erected, a hedge planted and a small parking area created.

A planned refurbishment of the H.Q. building started in the summer of 1998 and continues.
October 2000 saw the enrolment of girls into the Troop, Pack and Colony for the first time.

In 2006 (forty year anniversary of 107th) a „back badge‟ worn at the base of the neckerchief
was introduced for all members. The design included a Magpie from the original 23rd
neckerchief colours of black and white

        GUIDE & SCOUT ROWING AND PULLING CLUB
A new activity for 2010! Our Scout & Guide Counties now have a new Rowing and
Pulling Club offering taster/fun evenings or Saturday morning sessions afloat in
Bristol Harbour.

Scouts, Explorers, Guides and Rangers can now learn how to row, work as a crew
and acquire water based skills – all of which can count towards activity badges and
awards. Full instruction is given by fully qualified Instructors holding the necessary
Activity Permit or authorisation. Adult parties – Network, Trefoil or Active Service
units – are most welcome to participate.

Changing, toilet, shower and kitchen facilities are available at the Club base at the
Benjamin Perry Water Activities Centre, Phoenix Wharf, off Lower Guinea
Street, Bristol BS1 6TJ. Catering facilities are available.

Crews of 5 to 15 (max) Scouts and/or Guides can be accommodated in up to 3
boats. The minimum crew is 4 persons; 5 per boat is ideal. Groups/Units should be
accompanied by a leader who has individual permission forms and a next-of-kin
contact list and takes charge of the party ashore. An ability to swim 50m and stay
afloat for 5min is required for most participants (but Instructors may allow one non
swimmer per boat). The required buoyancy aids are supplied. Minimum age is 10
years. The charge is £20 per boat used. Sessions (evenings or Saturday mornings)
can be booked now and give at least an hour afloat, depending on age and fitness:

                             INVITATION

When:           Sunday 27 June 2010
Where:          Centenary Wood, Pennsylvania Farm, Newton St. Loe **
Time:           Anytime between 10am and 4pm

You, your team, and any other interested leaders/executive members,
are invited to join the County Commissioner for a cup of coffee/tea and a
slice of cake at Centenary Wood so that you can see the potential for
future use of the site for activities by your Section/Group/District/Unit.

Although close to Bath, the site is in a rural setting. As far as camping
goes it is a greenfield site – there is a water supply but nothing else at
present. There are three camping areas amongst the trees making it
ideal for Patrol camping, but the total site will take larger numbers – a
Troop or Unit for instance.

The site also lends itself to daytime and evening non-residential events–
start or end point for hikes, base for nature activities, barbeques, Teddy
Bear Picnics, Easter Egg Hunts, outdoor badge activities – you name it,
you can probably do it here!

** For those of you with sat. nav., the post code for the farm
(approximately 1km [0.5 miles] away is BA2 9JD.

For those using an OS map the grid reference is ST700629.


For Directions on how to get there please see the next page
of this newsletter.

   HOW TO GET TO THE CENTENARY WOOD SITE FROM
               THE JUNCTION A4/A39
      (THE GLOBE PUBLIC HOUSE ROUNDABOUT)
It is recommended, as the lanes are very narrow and with few passing places,
that you use a “one way” system, arriving via Newton St Loe and departing via
Wilmington.

Take the road (marked Coombe Down etc) to the LEFT of The Globe Public
House and follow it up the hill. After a short distance IGNORE the right hand
turn to Newton St Loe.

At the top of the hill the road will bear slightly to the left and there is a junction
to the RIGHT (sign posted “Clays End” on the left hand side of the road) and
with an advertisement board for Bed and Breakfast at Pennsylvania Farm on
your right at the side of the turning. TURN RIGHT into this lane.

After a shortish distance you will reach a “T” junction with a further
advertisement board for Bed and Breakfast at the farm. TURN LEFT.

After a while you will see another advertisement for Bed and Breakfast at the
farm – which is reassuring as by now you will think that you are lost.

When you get to the farm (which is on your right) keep going up the lane!!!!

The entrance to the site is further up the same lane and on the LEFT – just
before a right angled bend in the road. (The road bears to the left: there is a
bridleway to the right which will allow you to turn around if you have overshot:
it is very potholed so don‟t drive further than the length of your vehicle before
reversing)

WARNING – the gate opens OUTWARDS.

NOTE: the lanes get narrower as you move away from the main road and
passing places are rare. Watch out for the wildlife – mainly squirrels and
pheasant but sometimes rabbits and ducks as well.

                           EDITOR‟S PIECE

I would like to hear more from Scout Groups. Perhaps you have just
recently been on a trip or would like to write an article about a district
event you have attended? I am also keen to hear from Young Leaders
too.
