In September, an award-winning photographer and filmmaker Kelvin Murray filmed a short film with the 1st New Cross & Lewisham Scouts. Over 2 days, a professional crew of 12 with 1 ton of gear (and a sailing boat) visited 3 locations – all scout huts chosen for their charming features.

In the film, we see our determined young Scouting heroes take on the most ambitious activity badges – all inside Scout huts. It’s a sweet, fun, and heartwarming little film that we’re really proud of.

The 7 Cubs and Scouts who feature in the film were outstanding. They were all selected at a casting session earlier in the year and were so focused and enthusiastic – a real credit to Scouting. Well done to Rafe, Corbyn, Myles, Favour, Harley, Andrew, Lucy, and Scout Leader Adam for taking part.

A HUGE thank you to all those Leaders, Cubs, Scouts, Parents, and Lewisham District who supported this project along the way. A special thanks to 1st New Cross, 12th Lewisham North, 9th Sydenham, 3rd Crofton Park, 11th Forest Hill & 2nd Mortlake Scout Groups.

Well done team 1NX!
