January - Scouts from both troops attend a very enjoyable Fire, Ice and MUD camp at Tolmers Scout Camp and some of the older Scouts attended the District Caving Weekend at Bristol.

April - Four Scouts from Eagle Troop are invited to attend a Water Activities weekend at the Docklands in London.  The weekend was fun packed and was very worth attending.  Six Scouts walk 30 miles around Poole Harbour to raise money for Help for Heroes raising over £1000

May - Scouts District Camp at the Wiltshire Scout Centre in Potterne.  

June - The group decideds to hold a Presentation Evening for this years AGM and during a wonderful evening our GSL, Audrey, announced that as of July she was resiging her post.  Audrey has strongly supported the Group for many years and this was a very sad time for all.

July - After nearly 10 years of service with 1st Calne Simon Lonsdale, SL, Eagle Troop and Caroline Lonsdale, BL, have left due to Simon starting a new job in Gloucestershire.  Simon and Caroline are keeping in touch as Simon is still going to be the website editor.  

Cubs attend Summer camp in Hampshire

August - Scouts attend a weeks Summer camp at Cranham in Gloucester.

The Group is 100 Years Old.

February - Calne celebrate their birthday with a day long party presenting the groups new necker and celebration badge.

Sad news at the very unexpected loss of Geoff Lucas, husband of Audrey, and  one of the past leaders here at Calne.

April - Happier news for Audrey Lucas as it has just been announced that she has been awarded the Silver Acorn Award and this is a major award in Scouting only given to Leaders who have at least 20 years service, and their service has been specially distinguished and appreciably better than outstanding.  I think we would all agree a fitting award to a dedicated Scout Leader at Calne.


Tickets please ... Bears!!

Our newly formed Cub Pack the Bears caught a special Route Master service from Calne to Avebury as a memorable treat for their investure. Such a special start to some great times ahead.
