Petworth & Pulborough District
Scouting Sunrise

1st Billingshurst





One hundred years ago, the sound of a kudu horn called 20 boys from a cross-section of society together to start an eight-day camp. When he was blowing the horn, Baden-Powell had no intention of starting a new movement. He simply wanted to provide a programme of activities that other existing youth organisations could use. He was testing his ideas, unsure about whether they would work or not.

100 years to the day, at 8am on 1 August 2007, Scouts in 216 countries and territories will mark the Centenary. They will unite to celebrate Scouting’s successes, reaffirm their commitment to Scouting's values and, most importantly, look towards a bright future for Scouting.

More information, including a message from Chief Scout Peter Duncan, is available on the Scout HQ sunrise website.

Petworth & Pulborough District held their sunrise ceremony in the grounds of Petworth House. At 8am local time, we joined Scouts around the world as we renewed our Promise.

The Centenary Sunrise badge was awarded to all Parbrook cubs that attended and more photos from the event are available on our fotopic site.
