A massive thanks to all of the young people in the Group
and their parents for the attendance at the 2014 Remembrance

in the beautiful late Autumn Dorset sunshine - a record
number for the 1st Woodcutts Group.
Explorers Canal Trip 2014
Camping on a Canal Boat
The Explorers organized their own "camp" this year taking a trip on a canal boat. They visited Bath and Bristol and by the looks of things they had a great time. During the trip they said goodbye to Andy Turner who is leaving the group after many years, firstly as a Leader for Scouts and then taking on the newly formed Explorers section. He will be much missed by the whole group. There are more photos of the trip here.
53rd Anniversary of Scouting in Indonesia
During a recent trip to Indonesia, Andy and Denise Turner were invited to take part in the National Scouting celebrations in Indonesia. See the October edition of the Downsman to find out more.

1st Woodcutts Scouts are based just outside Sixpenny Handley in Dorset; they are the foremost providers of youth activities in the area. The group has Explorers, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers sections with a total of over 80 members from North East Dorset and the Chalke Valley in Wiltshire.
The group was originally founded on 8th March 1957 by our existing Group Scout Leader, John Curtis, and meets at the HQ in Woodcutts which has plenty of space for scouting activities.

If you would like to find out more about Scouting in Woodcutts and Sixpenny Handley, then please contact (Group Scout Leader), (Explorers Leader), (Scout Leader), (Cub Scout Leader) or (Beaver Scout Leader). Phone numbers can be found in any printed edition of The Downsman.
