Notts Scouts Big Weekend 2024 at the Newark Showground

14 May 2024

On behalf of the Lieutenancy I attended the Nottinghamshire Scouts Big Weekend 2024 at Newark Showground on Sunday the 5th of May. A great opportunity to meet senior members of the Scout association and many young people of all ages. 

3000 young people came together to participate in an amazing experience of outdoor activities ranging from sailing climbing abseiling, car driving, rifle shooting, archery and tomahawk throwing as well as with all usual scouting activities. Scouts and Cubs camped Beavers and Squirrels joined during the days.

My visit was only part of the weekend which lasted from Friday to Monday.

A very enjoyable experience to which I was made very welcome.
