Exhibition at 3rd Peel Sea Scouts’ Headquarters

An exhibition of the history of 3rd Peel Sea Scouts was held in the Headquarters on Friday 20 th March. On show were photographs and log books that had been kept by the late Commander Green from the inception of the group in 1950.

Some spent two hours reading the entries and reliving the events which were recorded in Commander Green’s (known as White Buffalo) own special way. An event where two of the scouts were good and “the rest were rubbish”. In another case he fined one lad 10p for eating the Commander’s biscuits when being given a lift in his car! There was one old scout who started with the troop in 1950 when they met in the former Clothworkers’ School in Derby Road . Most of the others met in the Nissen hut in Mill Road used between 1950 and 1960. One old scout attending remembers his father driving grandfather’s coal lorry to Janets DSCF1079Corner to pick up the Nissen hut from the former RAF base and also the lorry being used to take scouts to camp.

There were two sessions, one in the afternoon for former scouts and cubs and in the evening for the general public, although some of the old scouts came to that session.

Scouts Expedition Challenge badge

Posted on November 5th, 2014 by admin

On Saturday 01/11/14 – Sunday 02/11/14 Scouts from 1st Ballaugh, 3rd Peel Sea Scouts, 3rd Castletown and 1st Malew Tuesday bravely undertook their Expedition Challenge badge. The purpose of the journey being a circular route from Fenella beach to Mullin ny Carty back to Fenella beach taking in Letterboxes and using no paths/roads twice.

A beautiful start to the day on Saturday turned foul and despite horizontal rain as the Scouts descended South Barrule their spirits were high in the knowledge they had the option to use the new indoor facilities at Mullin ny Carty. Although very basic, a heated room was ideal for drying out, warming up and some down time playing cards and Top Trumps before preparing a tea of chicken curry and rice followed by sponge and custard.

A big thank you to Jay and Lissy for providing a DVD player (good old Shrek – a classic at any age) and a much needed ego booster to complete Saturday’s journey saw the young people asleep by 10:30 pm.

Sunday morning saw much better weather and having planned a route back to Peel and making their own breakfast and packed lunch they set out in good spirits and crossed territory of all domains. Highlight of the day was Harry (3rd Castletown) losing his shoe in the bog at Grenaby and being chased by the geese at Peel!

It was lovely to see four of the smaller Scout Troops together and l hope it is the first of many joint activities.

Well done all and to the leaders involved a big thank you!
