A Wild Pig Chase

wild pig chase (2)Well done to the winning team in our Wild Pig Chase across Ipswich.

Three teams of scouts headed out on the mean streets of Ipswich to track down the herds of plastic pigs roaming the back streets and alley ways.

With the help of a map and a convoluted scoring system, their mission was to find as many high scoring pigs as possible and make it back to base, on time and unscathed.

The pigs are part of a sculpture trail which has been set up to raise money for St Elizabeth Hospice. You have until the 2nd of September to see whether you can do as well as our scouts – our winning team managed 25 in 90 minutes.

Welcome to our Scout Group!

And to our website. ¬†We hope to use the site to keep parents and the wider community up-to-date with our scouting activities. If anyone has any photos of Samford Valley from the old days, we’d love to see them and publish them in our gallery.
