This Terms badge project, to be done as homework. This is not compulsory, you do not have to do it, no one will hassle you for it.

Meteorologist Activity Badge


How to earn your badge

  1. Explain how each of these are measured:
    • wind force and direction
    • cloud type and extent
    • temperature
    • pressure
    • rainfall
    • humidity.
  2. Record the weather conditions every day for two weeks. Use equipment like a rain gauge or an outdoor thermometer.
  3. Identify different cloud types. How are they formed?
  4. What do ‘warm’ and ‘cold’ air masses in summer and winter do to the typical weather in your area? Note down the effects of land and sea.
  5. Explain how synoptic weather maps are produced. Show you can
    understand a map, with fronts and isobars, similar to those on television and in newspapers. How do the measurements in step 1 relate to the map?
  6. Understand the effects of hypothermia and heat exhaustion. How do temperature, wind and water affect the human body?

Do NOT copy and paste directly off the Internet. Use you own words/experiences.

Scouting Memorial Project Badge available

The Scouting Memorial Project is a national campaign designed to raise awareness of "Remembrance". It aims to raise funds to build and maintain a Scouting memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum  to remember those who have given service to Scouting and their communities, especially those members of Scouting who have suffered through conflict.

This badge is classed as an 'Occasional' badge and can be worn on the uniform until our County Commissioner deems the cause spent. We are looking at least 12 months probably for longer, then it can go on your camp blankets.

There is also a memorial pin badge.

Cloth badges are £2 and Pins are £3 each. There is no obligation to have or to wear one.

If you would like one of these badges / pins please contact Colin. I will place an order when I know how many to order.



Parents - A letter was sent home on the last meeting before last Easter. If you didn't receive it you'll find a copy here.  (Opens as .pdf)


If you can spare 2 hours on any section night please consider either becoming a Section assistant (uniform - optional, minimal training) or becoming a Leader or Assistant Leader (uniform and full training).

Beavers could do with 2 or 3 leaders or Section Assistants (SA's) to help spread the load. This takes pressure off the 3 leaders we have, one of who is stepping down this summer.

Cubs and Scouts could use another Leader or Section Assistant each.

Explorers could do with another leader this section of 14 - 18 year olds has really grown in the last 2 years.

Please contact Paul 07803 015344 or email paul.bennett@ledburyscoutgroup.org.uk for more information or to volunteer. I was asked to help by a Scout leader over 8 years ago, and I'm still there so it can't be that bad!

All training is free and will help you in other areas outside Scouting.

Paul Bennett - Group Scout leader



A new online shop has been setup through Online Scout Manager. They sell camping equipment and other useful item for Scouts. With Christmas on the way it may be a good place to look for those gifts and stocking fillers. The best part is that 10% of all money spent will go back to Ledbury Scouts.
