Scouts were encouraged to walk a mile or more – and get sponsored by friends and family – as part of the BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief Big Day In on 23rd April 2020. If every Scout hiked one mile it would add up to the equivalent of the 240,000 miles to the Moon.
With the ban on public gatherings still in place on 23rd April we were not able to have our usual St George’s Day Parade, so members from all of the sections wore their uniforms to take part in the ‘Clap For Our Carers’ at 8pm.

The Ruislip Eastcote Northwood Scout District celebrated St George’s Day on Sunday 28th April 2019 at Ruislip Lido. Groups marched on to Willow Lawn from all directions, a good turn out with 1st Northwood well-represented.
There was a fun game as well as the more serious business of presenting awards and renewing of promises. The photos describe the event better than words:
