MSF Explorer Camp 2018

Some of our Explorers attended the MSF explorer cycle camp this year and it was a fun packed weekend. Our explorers all overcame challenges including mountain biking up very steep muddy hills, eating locusts, a night spy game in the pouring rain, making a fire in the snow and tomahawk throwing.

Global Issues Activity Badge

Girls Explorers working towards their ‘Global Issues Activity Badge’, they spent the session being creative and building prototype shelters out of cardboard, they hope to rebuild them in the summer and sleep in them to understand some of the challenges faced by the homeless community in order to complete part of this badge. 



Jack Petchey Award for outstanding services to Scouting

7th Goodmayes Explorers, Muhammad Islam and Ayesha Karim were awarded the prestigious Jack Petchey Award for outstanding services to Scouting last night.  The Award Ceremony took place at Sir James Hawkey Hall and the selfless work of many Scouts and their Leaders was celebrated.  Muhammad and Ayesha spend much of their spare time volunteering at their Scout Group, helping run sessions for younger sections.


Two exceptional Young Leaders

7th Goodmayes celebrated as it welcomed 2 Young Leaders into its group of volunteers. It was testimony to the development of the Group as a whole – as both these young people had been Scouts themselves – they had now completed their training and were able to give their time back to the Group.  Rumaysa Rafique had originally joined the Group as a Beaver and Nabeeha Yeahya had joined the Group as an Explorer Scout. 014
