Meet our smallest Wight Rovers Media Team Members

Sid the Scout and Friends


Hi Everyone. I’m Sid the Scout.


Some of you may have been following my adventures since I came to the Isle of Wight and became a Cub. I met GIJoe and we’ve had some fun adventures. Now I’ve become a Scout and I’ve made loads of little friends. Some of us are members of the Wight Rovers Media Team. We’re going to write loads of reports to tell you what we get up to Scouting here on the amazing Isle of Wight.


The Team

First of all I’m going to introduce you to my Media Team friends.

Here’s me (front right) and some of my Scout Troop. On my right is Jade. She loves making things and fixing things. Behind me is Dave my patrol leader. He’s a member of the County Archery team. In the middle is Skip, our Scout Leader. His real name is Mike Andrew Scott, so some times we’re called M.A.Scotts Troop (say it quickly as one word). Mike claims you can tell he’s a proper Scout Leader – ‘cos he’s always got a mug of coffee in his hand. Back left in the photo is Skip’s wife Jen. She’s a Brownie Brown Owl, so we call her Owly!

We’ve got a couple of younger members of the Wight Rovers, On the left is Sally the Beaver. In the middle is our American friend GIJoe. His real name is Gordon Ian Josephs. He’s mad about anything military and he’s a member of the County Shooting Team. So he has a very appropriate nickname. On the right is Chris. I gave him my favourite Cubs100 hoody.
