Written by Sheth Ashley Cooper, 1st Durbanville Rover

The 1st Durbanville Rovers are a tight-knit group of young adults who are passionate about making a difference in the local community.

Our Rover Crew forms part of the 1st Durbanville scout group and is known for its dedication to community service and its ability to make a difference in the lives of others.

The 1st Durbanville Rover Crew has been running for six years and has been particularly active over the past two years. We have taken on various projects such as clearing alien vegetation, helping to run scout programmes for under privileged kids and assisting at a variety of scouting events and competitions.

Scouting has been a beloved tradition in South Africa for many years with its origins dating back to the early 20th century. The scouting movement was founded on Scout Troops (age 11 to 17) and soon expanded to include Cub Packs (age 7 to 10), Rover Crews (age 18 to 30) and, more recently, Meerkat Dens (age 5 to 6).

Rovers, in particular, play an important role in shaping the Scouting community in South Africa. Rovers are the older members of the scouting community who take on leadership roles within the movement and engage in community service projects.

The Rover phase of Scouting is a time for young adults to learn important life skills as they engage in a variety of service projects. We also participate in several exciting Rover competitions.

The 1st Durbanville Rovers achieved a Gold Star Award in 2022 and this year we are striving to achieve this award once again. The Gold Star Award is a prestigious award that recognizes the hard work and dedication of Rover Crews across South Africa. It is awarded to Crews that demonstrate exceptional leadership, teamwork, and community service.

Receiving the Gold Star Award is a significant achievement for our Rover Crew. It validates our hard work and dedication to making a positive impact in our community. We are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts and are even more motivated to continue making a difference in our community.

Our Rover Crew continues to grow each year and we are excited about the impact we are able to make in our community. We are committed to serving others, helping out where we can and running competitions that promote teamwork and leadership. We believe that through our efforts, we can inspire others to make a difference in their communities and to create a brighter future for all. Scouting has taught us the value of service and leadership, and we are proud to be part of a community that strives to make a difference in the world.
