OK I have a question. Sam is in self isolation no symptoms due to the whole of year 9 at Ercall Wood being told to self isolate. Are you happy for Niamh to still attend?
Can I ask when scouts start back?
Thank you so much to Sam and everyone who helps at 2nd Wellington beavers through what has been a very difficult time. We have loved all the activities you have worked so hard to organise each week. We have been to the moon, met other groups from around the country had a blast at the beaver camp weekend and made many amazing things . Enjoy your summer holiday and look forward to seeing you all soon love from Jack and family ###
Our Cubs at West Grimsby enjoyed your Escape Room tonight - thank you, it was good fun for them (and us leaders too!)
Hi, would Sam and Niamh still be able to come to the sleepover as they will be parading in Hadley with sea cadets? It means we would need to pick them up . Totally understand if this means they can't come.

Welcome to the page for the 2nd Wellington Scout Group. This is a public page to show you what great things we do as a Group. Hope you enjoy it.

We have 3 sections at 2nd Wellington Scout Group. Beaver Colony - 6 to 8yrs - Monday evening
Cub Pack - 8 to 10½yrs - Tuesday evening
Scout Troop - 10½ to 14yrs - Friday evening

Operating as usual

It was saddening to hear about the death of our Patron, HM Queen Elizabeth II.

Tonight’s Scouts session will be going ahead as normal.
However we will be changing our programme slightly to reflect the circumstances.

We will be starting with a moment of silent reflection. We will then be using the remaining time to reflect and follow on the rest of the evening with something fitting.

Some of Scouts combined with Prees Scouts to have a great time canoeing on Friday with AMC Paddling at Shrewsbury Showground. Everybody got completely soaked but all had a great time and said they would do it again!

Thank you to AMC Paddling for your time and expertise.

We are holding a stall at Admaston House to talk about Scouts in the local area.

Thank you so much to the Scouts ( and their family members) who made such a difference to the hut. We have stuffed the green bins full of w**ds and probably have enough ready to fill them again!

2nd Wellington Beavers celebrated the Jubilee earlier this month by making their own crowns and holding their own Jubilee party.

Nice work, Beavers!

Scouts have been so busy this month that I haven't had chance to post everything that they have done!

In the past month they have:
* gone to District scout camp to enjoy coracling, archery, go-karting, air rifle shooting, crate stacking and tomahawk throwinfg
* teamed up with the Army Reserves at Dawley to spend the day learning about vehicles and earning their Mechanic badge
* spent time improving their local area by joining a Wellington-wide litter pick
* learned how best to light campfires (and how it is more difficult than it looks!)
* had the opportunity to watch the GB Women's para ice hockey team train
* practised their map reading skills
* gained valuable First Aid skills from an advanced paramedic during one of their meetings

We're only half way through this half term!!! Kayaking, geocaching, outdoor games still to come.

If you would like to join in the fun, either as a member or as a leader (yes, leaders get the chance to do all this stuff too😃), click on the "sign up" button at the top of our page or send us a message via Messenger. We'd love to hear from you, whether you're 5 or 95!

Our Beavers welcomed Simon from KiP this week to learn about how his charity project helps homeless people in the area. As KiP collects toiletries (among other things) to distribute to people in need, our Beavers had collected a table-full of toiletries to donate to this good cause.

Thank you Simon for taking the time to visit us and thank you Beavers for your wonderful efforts

Good evening all,

We would like to start collecting donations of toiletry items to help the KiP project, which is a charity set up to help local homeless people (https://maninplace.org.uk/homeless/). The feeling of being clean can greatly improve a person's self esteem, as well as improving their employment and accommodation prospects.

We would welcome donations of unused washing products, hair care items or dental hygiene products. Please could you bring any donations to your next meeting at the Scout hut - we will collect the donations together and pass them on to KiP.

Many thanks for your support of 2nd Wellington and of our local community.

What a productive morning! Our Cubs and Scouts joined forces with 1st Admaston Cubs and Beavers and the Friends of Dothill Nature Reserve to plant the last 2000 of 9000 bluebells and to help create hibernacula / habitats for woodland animals.

Thank you so much to the young people and to the adults that they brought with them, you were all amazing 🤩

Absolutely perfect weather conditions combined with a bit of good luck meant that the Scouts were not only able to spot several constellations on Friday night but also the ISS which happened to pass through the night sky during our meeting!

For anyone interested in spotting it themselves, I would recommend the “Satellite Tracker” app and “Sky View Lite” for identifying stars and constellations.

Very proud of two of our scouts tonight. They each won a bronze medal for their performance in one of the disciplines at Shropshoot last weekend. John Dohoo, the organiser of the event, came to our meeting to present them with their medals.

I should add that all of our Scouts did well at the competition, especially so as they have had very little practice compared to many groups. Very well done to every single one of them.

Photos from 2nd Wellington Scout Group - Shropshire's post 05/02/2022

Amazing 100% attendance at Shropshoot competition with Scouts taking part in air rifle, air pistol and crossbow competitions today. It was a very long day for all concerned but behaviour was excellent throughout.

Cubs had a great evening celebrating Chinese New Year which included cooking sweet & sour chicken and rice.

An amazing time was had by everyone at the Circus Spectacular at Oakengates today. Picture taken with permission from the performers.

All members behaved really well and were a credit to 2nd Wellington. Thank you all.

Well done to all of our Scouts tonight for taking part in our Chinese New Year meeting. They all had a go at making a Chinese candle holders, tried Chinese food and had a relay race using chopsticks, They all got the hang of using chopsticks fairly quickly, though it's a bit more difficult trying to use them when you're racing from one side of the room to the other ...

Fantastic progress by 2nd Wellington Scouts with their Circus skills. Thank you so much to Leo's Loco Circus for sharing your knowledge.

Very well done to the Scouts that took part in the air rifle shooting today. They all did amazingly well and made demonstrable progress in just half an hour!

I was so fascinated by the achievements that I forgot to take photos! I'll make sure I take some next time.

At Scouts, we have some great activities lined up for after Christmas: survival skills, air rifle shooting, making gadgets, circus skills. If you have a child aged 10 or above who is not already in Scouting, why not encourage them to give us a try? Come along for a few sessions and see what you think!

Get in touch with Jenny Flegg (scout leader) or send a message to 2nd Wellington Scout group. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

14/11/2021

Thank you for giving your time up today to serve your community. You were a credit to yourselves and to Scouting.

If anyone has any photos of the parade, especially involving 2nd Wellington, please post them here or on our private group page. Thank you.

Well done to all the Scouts who made their paracord poppies tonight. It required a lot of concentration and patience but they coped really well.

Next week is Quiz Night!

10/11/2021

As members of a uniformed organisation, your schools should allow you to wear your scouting uniform in school tomorrow.

I’ll be wearing mine with pride, will you join me?

To those of you going along to the 1st Wrekin bonfire and fireworks, have a great time.

It's not an official 2nd Wellington event so parents will need to stay with their young people.

Our Scouts had a really productive morning at Dothill nature reserve this morning. Between them we collected 3 big bags of rubbish while litter picking and made a real difference to a section of the nature reserve, pulling up Himalayan balsam: a pernicious w**d that suppresses native plants. Thank you to Friends of Dothill Local Nature Reserve for letting us to help you.
