Scout Bob-a-Job is back big time in Bromham

Started in 1949, Scout Bob-a-Job introduced young
people to the idea of working at good turns for a
small reward. A bob was a shilling in old money
- 5p in metric. Health and safety issues twenty
years ago were blamed for the collapse of this
national Springtime activity. But this year sees
its revival as Community Week when Scouts
join forces to provide a sponsored campaign to
help local people with community projects of all kinds.    The Bromham Cubs salute their success.

In Bedfordshire, around 500 Scouts have been mobilised to handle a range of projects, a campaign which will continue through June.
One project in Bromham, North Bedfordshire, saw 35 enthusiastic Cub Scouts handling litter picking around the Meadowbank estate and nearby Village Road. Organised by Group Scout Leader Simon Berrington, with help from parish council pathways manager Peter Argyle, the Cubs' sharp eyes found litter in all kinds of unlikely places.
Six Cubs were despatched to a particularly well known eyesore alongside Village Road where the youngsters were in their element.
"I am proud that so many Scout Groups in Bedfordshire are taking part in Scout Community Week and I know they will have a really positive impact in their local areas. Volunteering is at the very heart of Scouting and it's great to see so many people volunteering to support others and provide help where it is needed. Working together we're going to make a huge difference to communities up and down the country. "

Bromham Scout Group also featured in the
August/September issue of Scouting magazine.


On the 28 March 2012, Simon Berrington GSL for Bromham Scout Group was presented with his wood badge confirming completion of his training in the position of Bromham Group Scout Leader.

All adult and young leaders undertake a structured training programme which builds on their existing knowledge and ensures consistency in the delivery of high quality scouting in Bromham.

At the same evening, Mark Heard was presented with the Queens Scout Award, the highest award in scouting. Mark was a Cub and Scout in Bromham before becoming a Bedford District Explorer with the Wootton unit. Mark has also completed his Gold Duke of Edinburgh award which was presented at the end of 2011.

These awards have helped Mark with his University application and in work placement interviews.
A well done to Mark from everyone at Bromham Scout Group for achieving these awards.
