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!

Not quite the olympic stadium, but exciting building plans are brewing

3HH Group

You might be interested to hear about the latest installment in 3HH’s ongoing growth and development. After so much success in purchasing essential new kit we now find ourselves in the happy position of struggling to accomodate it all.

So with the fantastic assistance of one of the Scout parents, who is also rather conveniently an architect, we’ve started to plan out an extension to our existing building.

And of course, if there are any building firms, material suppliers, electricians, willing hands etc out there who would like to donate anything towards to the project, we’d be thrilled to hear from you! ;-)

Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are ready for another busy and exciting year at 3HH!

We are firming up plans for our Family Camp in May 2011 at Walton Firs. Please watch here for updates and for letters coming out with more details. We are also making plans for our Quiz Night in March. Again, watch the Web Page and for details via Section Meetings. And of course we are now counting down to our Big Trip to Kandersteg in the Summer.

During the break the 3HH Team worked hard to clear, rationalise, reorganise and sort The Office, Meeting Room and Hall Store at the Scout HQ. A big thanks to all involved.

As usual all the Sections have a fantastic programme planned for the Term.

I look forward to seeing you all soon.

3rd Hampton Hill Sweep the Board

Monday, October 18th, 2010
3HH Group Explorers Scouts

sc-as-maatarA crisply cold weekend of shooting air rifle, pistol, field target, knockout, small-bore, full-bore and biathlon culminated in 3rd Hampton Hill’s best ever results at the annual National Scout Air Rifle Championships.

This year was once again their biggest entry with some 782 shooters from Scout and Explorer groups across the country, 3rd Hampton Hill entering 9 Scout shooters, 5 adults and a team of 5 from Hampton Explorers. Whilst we won’t know the full results for a few days, a closing ceremony chock full of awards for the top three places definitely left us with smiles on our faces.

Firstly, in the Biathlon, a completion to run 400m, shoot prone, run 400m, shoot kneeling, run 400m, shoot standing and then run 400m saw the junior competition and gold medal won by Tom H, even though he missed a target at prone!

The knockout is a competition requiring nerves of steel as well as good aim, standing shoulder to shoulder with your opponent aiming to be the first to knock down 5 targets and Rhiannon N continued with her good streak in this discipline taking equal third place and a bronze medal. Considering the size of the field this was an excellent result, especially as so many of us fell by the wayside very early in the competition.

Well done to the District Team that cycled to all the locations on the day! Great effort!

Having just returned from a Fantastic Scout Camp in the Peak District I am posting this note a little later than usual.

I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Summer Break. Safe travels and happy holidays to all.

We had a good turnout at our Annual Celebration Event and I would like to say a very big thanks to the Executive, Leadership Team and all those that helped make this a successful and enjoyable event.

Also a very big thanks to all the adults at 3HH for a fantastic term and for providing Nights Away (Camps & Sleepovers) this Summer. I know that the Beavers had a great time at their sleepover and the Scouts had an exciting and memorable camp. I am certain that the Cubs will also enjoy their Camp which starts later this week.

Enjoy the summer and we will see you all again in September.

Kindest regards and best wishes.

Summer Term . . . looking forward to even more Outdoors Adventure!

Sunday, April 18th, 2010
3HH Group

Hello All!

Spring and Early Summer Update: As I write this it is another fab day! :) Fingers crossed for many more. The Cubs and Scouts both enjoyed glorious weather and had great camps. A big thanks to the leadership teams and group supporters for providing 2 more brilliant camps, and to the Cubs and Scouts themselves for getting stuck in and giving their all.

A belated Easter wish to everyone, hope you all found some time for some peace and quiet, and have enjoyed the Easter Break. Our thoughts are with anyone that might still be stranded somewhere and we hope you get home safe soon.

We collected our new trailer whilst we were at Scout Camp. This is a very welcome addition to our Group and I know it will be greatly used. A big thanks to Sheila and to Simon for all their hard work in getting us this trailer.

I know that all the Sections have a great Summer programme lined up along with more camping and lots of outdoor stuff to enjoy. There is still time to enter our Air Rifle Event in May. We will shortly be planning our annual celebration event which will take place before the summer break. There are still opportunities for more adults to join us in a number of roles within the Group. Please speak with any Section leader for more details.

Come and join the adventure at 3rd Hampton Hill and be part of the challenge and fun of scouting.

I look forward to seeing you and speaking with you all soon.

Kindest regards,
Group Scout Leader

Please vote for 3HH Olympic hopeful

Monday, October 19th, 2009
3HH Group

your-vote-counts-buttonSome of you may remember former members of our group: the Boytons, Jon (Swedish), Chris and Matt along with parents Karin and Peter who were both very supportive of the group. Anyone who knows Jon will be aware that he was pretty proficient in a kayak and has since leaving the group gone from strength to strength in the sport, and is now a hopeful for the 2012 Olympics.

Whether you knew Jon or not, it would be really wonderful if you could click on the link below, vote for Jon and increase his chances of winning some valuable sponsorship and thereby help with giving one of our former members the fantastic chance to represent his country.

Welcome Back!
