3rd Barnehurst - Troop Online

Hello Scouts — as you know, due to the current difficult circumstances with the Coronavirus we are not able to run our Troop Meetings, Activities and Events for the foreseeable future.

So in the meantime, we will be adding some activities here, that you might like to do at home. There will be some Scout Badges that you can complete, plus some fun activities for you to try.

We will try to add new activities every week. Keep checking back to see what's new; and we'll update you via Email and Twitter when we post a new activity.

Keep Scouting and keep safe – and we hope to see you all very soon!

Paul, John, Matt, Megan and Christopher.
