A team of Young People from across the County have been hard at work planning a BRAND NEW activity at Bramhope Scout Campsite. Led by Jacob, Becky and Alex, the team have been given six thousand pounds to implement this new activity.

Since starting last summer the team have now limited the choice down to a BMX Track or an indoor Caving System. The team expect to move the project into its final stages in the next few months.

A huge testament to our Young People and the power of Youth Shaped Scouting, this project has been fully planned and led by under 18’s and we’re so excited to see the result!


We have been approached by Cats Protection who are able to offer free talks to community groups across the UK.

These interactive talks cover the work of the charity, cat care, understanding cat behaviour and the importance of respecting cats and all animals. We aim to promote responsible pet ownership and animal welfare.

Talks are designed to be fun, informative and are delivered by a trained education speaker. Each child will receive free goodies and we can provide follow up resources if required. After the talk each of the children will be able to tick off a section of the friends to animals badge too, helping them progress.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. We have thousands of cats in our care at any given time and each of our adoption centres is under immense pressure, with long waiting lists. Through activities including rehoming, reuniting, neutering, we help more than 500 cats a day across the UK. 

If any Group or Section feels that these programmes would be of interest, please contact:
