224 North London Air Scout Group

Fun, Friendship and Everyday Adventure

North London District Scouts, Greater London North

Scouting provides skills for life to young people, who are split into sections based on age. Beaver Scouts (6-8), Cub Scouts (8-10½), Scouts (10½-14), Explorer Scouts (14-18) and Scouts Network (18-25).


Adult Volunteers

Volunteers are pivotal to the running of our Scout Group. These may include leaders, assistants, occasional helpers, parents, administrators, fundraisers and more.

You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways.

If you would like to hear more, use the Contact Us link on the left.


Purpose

Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.


Values

Our values are at the heart of who we are and what we do:

Integrity We’re honest, we try to do the right thing (even if no-one’s watching), and we stay true to ourselves.
Respect We’re thoughtful of people’s feelings and values, treating everyone as we’d like to be treated ourselves.
Care We’re kind to others, looking after the world we live in.
Belief We explore our beliefs and attitudes with wide-open minds.
Cooperation We work with others to change the world for the better, making friends along the way.


Methods

Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:

  • enjoy what they are doing and have fun;
  • take part in activities indoors and outdoors;
  • learn by doing;
  • share in spiritual reflection;
  • take responsibility and make choices;
  • undertake new and challenging activities;
  • make and live by their Promise

Programme

The Scouting Programme for all sections is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world and skills. In each section a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including the main themes: leadership, teamwork and personal development. The Programme is delivered in a balanced way that incorporates elements from each theme, to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experience.

Foodbank Support
12/02/2021 By Andrew Myers-Nobbs

224th North London Air Scout Group has recently started supporting a local Foodbank.

We are in the early days of supporting this local volunteer service however, we have made a good start despite the current lockdown situation.

We have made available, the use of our Scout Headquarters as a temporary food store. We have also delivered leaflets to the local community.

We will continue to support as best as we can in the current circumstances, and when restrictions ease, the Scout Group can really support in a big way.

 

 

"224 North London Air Scouts are working with Food Bank Aid North London. This is a collection hub for over 20 local food banks and it uses the scout hut on Sheldon Avenue.  I volunteered to deliver leaflets in my local area.  These encouraged people to donate items to the food banks and had information about what was needed and where they could be left.  The sort of things they request are tinned food, fresh fruit, vegetables and toiletries.  I was pleased to do this as we are encouraged to volunteer at my school.  It was also good to get exercise during lockdown."

"When there was a call to support North London food banks via 224 North London Air Scouts, Iva, a 224 scout and her brother Panash, a 224 cub volunteered to support their local community for this great cause. Due to the post-Christmas effect, the demand and supply gap in January is higher than normal. It therefore becomes critical to provide as much additional support as possible to the food banks".

Iva and Panash helped out with a number of activities last week and are committed to continue with the effort in the near future…
