We are now taking bookings for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers to JOTA/JOTI 2018 at Severndroog Castle, Shooters Hill on Saturday the 20th October from 09.00 am until 18.00.

Each session lasts for 1 and a half hours where your section can take part in an introduction to morse code, mapping and taking bearings on landmarks across London, take part in Shortwave and Skype communications with other scouting participants around the globe, and finally enjoy a wide game using radio locators in the grounds of the castle.

The cost of the event per member will be £4 for the session which covers the hire of the castle plus this year’s official JOTA/JOTI badge which you may wear on their uniform for one year. Each session is for 8 members of your section plus 1 or 2 leaders.

If you would like to make a booking please contact Alex Bienkov on and you will be sent a confirmation letter with full instructions.

As we are in the public eye with the local press attending, we require full uniform to be worn by everyone.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
