MALVERN DISTRICT SCOUT ACTIVE SUPPORT

ALSO KNOWN AS SCOUTS RECYCLED

Scouts Recycled Logo

Malvern Scout Active Support exists to provide support and help to Scouting in Malvern and its surrounds. We do this by responding to requests for help from groups and also the District. Some members are also attached to Groups within the District. We also have an active programme of our own as you will see as you read through this. I hope you enjoy it. I will add more events as they happen. During the centenary celebrations of 2007 it was decided to rename the Fellowship as Scouts Recycled although we are still also known as the Malvern Fellowship, now as Active Support We are full  members of the Scout Association.

This is an a event that we have organised for a number of yeas now and it seams to go down well with the cubs It is run on the old hills which are near to Malvern and is common land with trees and scrub, it makes it more interesting for those taking part.

DISTRICT SWIMMING GALA

We have also helped with the swimming gala that is held at Ledbury pool that goes down well with the groups.

ST GEORGES DAY PARADE

We provide assistance to the annual St Georges Day Parade which is usually held in Malvern PrioryChurch, the largest church in Malvern, we put out extra chairs and also put out the order of service and we also help with the parade which is from the Library grounds to the church. It gives Scouting a chance to show what we have got to offer as well as to renew the law and promise.

WORKING WEEKENDS AT THE DISTRICT

SITE

We have also had a number of working weekends at the District campsite where we have completed a number of quite substantial projects the most recent being the completion of the assault course we have done lots of other jobs as well such as painting fixing things making racking and all the other jobs that need doing. Some of us also help with the day to day running of the site such as bookings and letting people on and off the site. During these weekends we usually stay at the site in the building that is on the site and we usually have a good atmosphere to the weekends.

During large camps or events that are held at the District Site, we also provide site support.

AND AT OTHER SITES

We have had a number of these weekends over the years at a number of sites, we have helped at Kinver Camp on a number of weekends and also at Rydd Covert, we have good fun as well as getting some jobs done for the sites. For example at Kinver we have done jobs such as moving hard core for a path to putting up new fences and we have done more or less the same for Rydd Covert.
