Founders Day Sunrise Hike, Totem Pole Unveiling & Guerrilla Neckerchiefing
What a wonderful morning for 5th Meath Kells Scout Group and the wider Kells Community. The day started with a meet up at 06.45 in the Fair Green followed by a wet, windy and dark hike out to the Tower of Lloyd but spirits were high even though there was no obvious sunrise! All sections renewed their Promise and took part in a moments reflection known as a Scouts Own. The wind was at our backs for the return hike back to the Sawmills for a tasty cooked breakfast.
Some of the Cubs went around the town performing some Guerrilla Neckerchiefing aka putting a necker on landmarks, statues or members of the community!
At 10am we unveiled our work in progress Totem Pole to a large crowd of Scouting families, friends and local dignitaries. Some people got the chance to try their hand at carving and we’re really looking forward to completing the paint work in the next couple of weeks.
Lastly one of our newest Leaders Liam Carey was officially invested into the Group, James Kiernan received his Stage 6 necker and Rufina & Andy were presented with their 5 years of service pin and badge.
A massive thanks again to all who helped in organising today’s event, made our Totem Pole dream a reality and their continued support of 5th Meath Kells Scouts.
Thanks to Leo Murphy for the photos.

Group Camp Castlesaunderson 19th-21st June 2015
A selection of photos from our very successful group camp in June.
Last week we had a visit from Meath River Rescue over 2 nights to talk to the group on Water Safety. With Camp North East coming up early next month and water activities on the agenda we thought it vital that the children are prepared as much as possible and get some ground work for their Paddling Adventure Skills badge.
We had members from all sections attend on both nights and they found it great fun and very informative. Thank you so much to ‘Hopper’ and gang for taking the time to visit and we hope to pay a return visit to their new purpose built boat house in Navan later in the year.
Fundraiser for Kells Local Heroes Playground Project
On Tuesday April 15th members of 5th Meath Kells had a ‘Fun Run & Playtime’ at the playground at the Fair Green. We organised this event to fundraiser for the Kells Local Heroes who are planning to do up the playground and surrounding area so all proceeds raised will go to them. Every member who took part donated €5 to this great project. We also had a raffle for a giant Easter egg which was won by new Cub member Ethan Coyle and Beaver member Emily Farrelly woman big box of Quality Street they were both very popular after their wins!
County Orienteering Donadea Forest Park November 30th 2014
A total of 84 members of 5th Meath Kells had a great (dry) day yesterday over in Donadea. Although we weren’t placed in the final results everyone had great fun figuring out the maps and finding all the clues along the way. Donadea is a lovely spot and well worth a visit as it’s only an hour away. It must be noted that we managed to return to Kells at 3.45pm…the time we said we’d be back! It does happen sometimes!
Beavers all set for Orienteering!
Scouts ready for the off & mingling with the competition from Athboy!
