Sainsburys Active Kids 2015

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015
3HH Group Beavers Cubs Explorers Scouts

Hi all, yes once again we’re off on the voucher collecting trail and hoping to make good use of our investment made last year. Investment I hear you ask? Well yes, instead of spending all our vouchers last year we saved them to add to whatever we collect this year to be able to ‘buy’ a bigger item, the catch is, we have to spend these this year or lose them :-(
So, once the vouchers start to appear please start collecting and pass our way as it saves you money. Saves us money I hear you ask? Well yes, as we’re able to supplement or replace our camping, outdoor and games equipment which would otherwise be bought from what we collect in subs.
Vouchers can be collected from any Sainsburys and you get 1 voucher for £10 spent at larger stores, 1 per £5 spent at smaller ones and if anyone in the queue says they don’t want them, offer to take them off their hands! Equally, if you have the time perhaps you could persuade the manager of your local Sainsburys to collect unwanted vouchers on our behalf and if you are able to supply a box for this it can prove very effective, but it probably won’t work in the larger stores.
Finally, when your ‘wodge’ is getting too large to handle please bring it down to the HQ and deposit in the correct slot of the box. If possible (as it saves many hours laborious counting) if you can count your vouchers and write the number on a slip of paper and lovingly surround them with a rubber band before popping them in the box (yes you can lift the lid) then we’d really appreciate it.
This really is an excellent scheme and has provided this group with many valuable items ranging from tents to footballs over the years, so please support your local Scout group, we are a charity after all :-)

Many thanks for all your superb donations so far and please do get those last few in. Many thanks!

All, Sainsburys have now finished giving out the Active Kids vouchers and we already have a great total of over 7000 vouchers with those we banked last year. We now have until the end of June to get our order in and I have no doubt there’s many a family with a stash of vouchers still to be dropped off at the HQ. As such we’ll leave the box at the HQ until after the AGM on Sunday 15th June at which point we’ll ‘close the books’. Every year we lose a large number of vouchers because they come in late so please do your best to get them in by this date; we cannot use them in the follwing year so we lose them :-(
Many thanks for all the vouchers you’ve collected so far, I’ll let you know what we order on a future post.

3HH Group Beavers Cubs Explorers Scouts

Last year was a real success for us with our best ever total collected allowing us to place a really valuable order for lightweight tents. So here we are in 2014 and we’re off on the collection trail again and why wouldn’t we as this superb scheme saves us money in being able to order sports, games and camping equipment and it doesn’t even cost us postage!
It would be really useful when collecting your vouchers and posting them in the box in the HQ if you can batch them up separately in 1s or 5s with rubber bands, adding a note of the number of vouchers enclosed as this will save us hours of counting.
Vouchers can be collected until 20th May and we have to place our order by the end of June latest so please do get these in before the closing date as every year we waste quite a number of vouchers as they come in after we’ve been forced to place our order. Many thanks in advance and just remember, every voucher donated helps to keep your subs down!

Beavers – Can you Help us? Or do you perhaps know someone that could?

Thursday, September 26th, 2013
3HH Group Beavers

We are looking for 3 or 4 people to Help regularly at Beavers.

We have Two Beaver Colonies that currently run on Fridays 5pm-6pm (early Colony) and 615pm-715pm (late Colony).
We are looking for people that can ideally commit about 1.5 hours about 2-3 times per month to help with Beaver Section Meetings and also get involved with helping to plan and organize the programme (this would be as part of a team and working with the existing leaders, both Beaver Colonies run the same shared programme). Our main challenge is trying to cover the early Colony Meeting from 5pm-6pm. You would be part of a Team.
We can offer you in return some Training (if you need/want it), plenty of support, advice and lots of fun! :) Plus the satisfaction of doing something which is rewarding.

Please, please do come along, get involved (have a go) and see how the Beaver Colonies run and think about helping us.

Please do get in touch with us via the enquiry page or send email to to find out about what’s involved.

We look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks.

Rich Moody (Group Scout Leader)
(on behalf of the Beaver Leadership Team and all at 3HH).

Group shooting competition for all adults, Scouts and Explorers Saturday May 11th

Friday, March 15th, 2013
3HH Group Beavers Cubs Explorers Scouts

Hi all, after a brief pause last year, we’ll be once again running our fun group shooting competition on Saturday 11th May 2013. This is an enjoyable event with at least four different shooting activities and medals in a number of categories for those crack-shots out there. We’ll be target shooting with both rifles and pistols, enjoying a field shooting competition outside and combining this with the nerve-racking knockout competition. Adults don’t need to have shot before so there’s no need to worry if you’re a complete novice. If you’d like to enter the competition please return the entry slip on the flyer along with a declaration for adults and/or a permission to shoot form for the under 18s.
Please note the closure date for entries and be aware that any entries received after that date may be refused.

Well it’s been a bit of a quieter year for the Sainsbury’s Active Kids voucher scheme this time round. I don’t know whether it’s been the weather stopping us from going shopping, competition from the schools or people varying their shopping habits, however we still managed to collect some 1755 vouchers. As this is around half of what we usually collect, we’re going to bank them all this time round, saving them up for next year where we can put them towards a bigger order. Many thanks for all your returns and if you’re collecting Tesco vouchers, that scheme is still running so please get them to us.

While we have some more photos to sort out for you, we thought you’d like to take a look at the Beavers’ latest sleepover.
Fourteen lucky Beavers from 3HH were able to stay over for the night, make wacky racers and play a ton of games. A big shout out for those who were brave enough to do their first ever night away from home, those who earnt their first Nights Away award and of course…. those adults mad enough to give up their night to run the camp. Well done everyone! :-)

Tesco and Sainsbury’s Voucher Schemes

Monday, February 7th, 2011
3HH Group Beavers Cubs Explorers Scouts

Once again both Sainsbury’s and Tesco have started their voucher schemes ‘Active Kids’ and ‘Schools and Clubs’ and this year your Scout group is registered for both. These are excellent schemes which in previous years have supplied the group with tents, cooking and camping equipment along with games and activity bits and pieces as well, so by donating your vouchers you’ll be helping to keep your subs and camp costs lower as we use these schemes to replace tired equipment.

There are two boxes in the HQ by the kitchen hatch, one for each supermarket so relieve those bulging wallets and purses of all those unwanted vouchers and help your group both get the kit it needs and save your cash!

sheep on a hillWe’ve posted the fantastic Beavers spring 2011 programme for this coming. We’re doing loads of fab stuff this term.

Beavers Go Sledging

Friday, August 6th, 2010

In what has now turned into a firm favourite for the end of term celebration, both colonies of Beavers once again headed for the Sandown slopes.

The weather stayed fine, the Beavers had a riotous time and some were even lucky enough to be swum up to Cubs that night! What a brilliant time everyone had and a perfect way to mark the start of the Summer holidays.

The “early” colony…
