District Minibus
28/10/2017 By Phillip Wood

I am very pleased to announce we have a new District Minibus. 

At long last we have a replacement for good old Starbug3.

We have a search going on for a name for the new vehicle. 

More good news is that you don't need a D1 on your licence to drive it. 

More details soon.

Blog | District JOTI/JOTA
21/10/2017 By Kirsty Aldridge

We have held our district JOTI / JOTA event at 1st Sandhurst HQ.

We had radio stations contacting people as far afield as Canada, Croatia. Internet chat talking to people from over 30 different countries.

We had over 60 scouts from 3 troops on the Friday night.

They cracked codes in morse code, enigma on pringles, sempahore, using walkie talkie radios, working as a team to 'diffuse the bomb', making electronic radio and morse code circuits and generally having a lot of fun. one member of each troop was rewarded for their efforts with a small prize.

Saturday saw two drop in sessions attended by over 16 young people from beavers to explorer from 6 different groups to cover their digital citizen stage 1 and 2 and for some their communications badges.

Thanks very much to Andy and Oliver who laid on the equipment and infrastructure to make this event possible. Here's to next year...
