TOBOGGANING - Friday 6th March

We are going to the Suffolk Leisure Park, just outside Ipswich, for an hour of fun on the toboggans. The Swiss Bob Toboggans are great fun, and are used on a safe carpeted slope away from the ski slopes, close to the ski lodge.  We have an hour booked from 7.30pm until 8.30pm.  We need parents to arrange lifts between themselves to make sure the Scouts are there no later than 7.15pm.


Scouts will need to wear long trousers and long sleeves and bring a pair of gloves with them.  They won’t allow you on the slope without gloves.  You must also wear your Scout scarf. The cost for the activity is just £7 each instead of the normal price of £9. Places are initially limited to just 30.  To book a place please visit the Parent Portal in OSM.  We will not require payment until the end of January 2020.

News & Letters

We returned to the destination of our first independent International Trip in the summer of 2019.  Lots has changed in the past 10 years, but the Scouts still had a fantastic 10 day adventure in Bavaria.


Living in a castle and abseiling down a 19m tower isn’t something you do everyday.

NORFOLK 19

The camp is now over.  It was a brilliant time with everyone trying something new.  Whether it was pedal karts, crate stacking or something more extreme such as the high ropes or paintballing.  There was loads for all to enjoy and even time for swimming on the way home.  The campsite in Norfolk (Eaton Vale) was excellent and couldn’t be faulted - no doubt we will return in the future.
