The County Team at Cambridgeshire Scouts would like to wish all our young people, volunteers and supporters a very Happy Christmas.

The gift our volunteers give over 6,500 young people each year might not be something wrapped and placed under the tree on the 25th December, but as time is something money can’t buy it really is priceless. Thanks to the families of all our volunteers too, for sharing each of them with their scouting family so generously.

It has been great to hear from increasing numbers of our Colonies / Packs / Troops / Groups / Units / Districts via e-mail, news submission forms or social media – and we look forward to more from everyone in the year ahead (please!).

We hope you enjoy opening our advent calendar, full of some great scouting memories (all created by our young people and volunteers) and a range of quotes from our founder (on some photos you may need to scroll down to see the quotes) – see if you can spot anyone you know.

No sneaky peeking though, the “doors” won’t open in advance!
