This evening, The 5th Dartford Scouts Phillips-Pack Cubs took to the ropes for a climbing session and a ‘have a go’ crossbow session. Below are a few pictures taken.
Jamboree On The Trail 2013
The 5th Dartford Scout Group were well represented at this years JOTT (a walk along the Darenth Valley path) with walkers joining in at various places en route. Leaders, Explorers and Scouts started at Sevenoaks Station, Cubs at Farningham and a mass of Beavers and their families from Dartford Park.
The weather was kind to the morning walkers, unfortunately as we set off from Dartford Park the heavens opened but that didn’t deter our spirits.
We all made it safely although rather muddy and damp to Sutton-at-Hone Football Club where we were greeted by much needed refreshments and given a badge to prove we took part.
Over 700 people walked this year (and a few dogs).
Our Thanks go to the organising team for a job well done.
Today, many of the cubs and beavers who are going on the Disney 2014 trip, attended a bag packing session at Dartford Sainsbury’s to help raise funds for the trip. Our young adventurers, accompanied by a parent, did one of two 2hr sessions and we’re pleased to advise that the bucket count for today was £547.15. We were also able to collect 625 Active Kids vouchers (running total now 9600) with customers realising that Scouts can benefit from them too.
Well done to all the young folk and parents who were able to attend today’s event.
Another success for the 5th Dartford Players with their non-violent ‘Canoe Done It?” mystery, which was well attended as usual. Cast member Darren was the culprit on this occasion having sabotaged the canoe race for financial gain! However, he was rumbled and the only one to gain on the night was our New Hall Fund as the evening raised £469.24.
Thank you to everyone who supported this evening and to the cast and catering team for making it such an enjoyable evening. Continue reading

Once again, The 5th Dartford Scout Group are collecting the Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers, which help us to replace and maintain equipment. This year’s scheme started on 30th January and will run until 22nd May, so a much longer run than last year. The usual collecting box will be just inside the door at the hall for this years vouchers.
Today, the 5th Dartford Scout Group paraded proudly to Dartford Central park to meet up with other Scouting and Guiding groups in the district to celebrate St Georges day in glorious sunshine.
Well done to all the young members who made the effort to turn out so smartly and to all the friends and family who came to line the parade and cheer us on.
