Little Green Sprouts

Good news – we’ve joined the new Little Green Sprouts initiative (backed by Suttons Seeds).

  • Help us raise funds to spend on the children
  • Great gardening offers for parents • Home activities for those “I’m bored” moments
  • Online games for children (of all sizes)

Little Green Sprouts is an online gardening store (with a difference) offering a mix of exciting new products for the confident gardener but also trusted favourites for those who know what they like. Whether you have an acre of land or just a windowsill there are products to suit. Here’s what we’d like you to do:

  • Visit http://www.littlegreensprouts.co.uk/hemyock_scout_group and have a browse
  • Once you’ve found what you’d like to buy simply place your order, safe in the knowledge that not only are you buying a quality item you are also raising funds for the group – every £10 spent will earn the Group  1 sprout which we can then spend on your children.
  •  Tell your friends! Feel free to invite your friends and family to visit the site
  • Sit back and wait for your order to arrive!

Best wishes and happy gardening!

Wales 2014 – Scout Camp

We had a great camp in the Snowdonia National park. Camping to the west of Mount Snowdon.
The weather was wet over night and early in the morning and cold.
Trips included a hike to the top of Snowdonia where we had  sun, fog, rain, hail, and wind (a good day for the mountain)  We had an activity day in a slate mine with an underground boat ride, zip line, climbing and abseiling very challenging but enjoyed by all.
We had a camera treasure hunt in Conwy followed by a visit to the Castle & finally a little crab fishing at the harbour.
All the Scouts cooked for themselves on wood fires, cooking the following menu’s Stir fry, Spaghetti bolognaise, and Sweet & Sour Chicken, all cooked to a high standard.
On the journey home we stopped for our final adventure which was a visit to King Arthur’s Labyrinth just outside Corris which is situated within a craft village, all the scouts enjoyed the visit

District Cub Football- All Hemyock Final!

What a fantastic day of football. All the teams played well and the weather held out for us with only a couple of showers!

The final was…

Hemyock A – Hemyock B.

Both teams played brilliantly and both deserved to win. Hemyock A won 1 – 0 in the last minute of extra time.

Cullompton were the winners of the wooden spoon.

Thank you very much to Hemyock Youth Football Club for sorting the pitches, refereeing and for the refreshments!
