10 months in the life of a 14th Scout in 3 mins

I can’t believe how much fun we’ve had this year – we started the year sleeping in caves 100m underground and finished the year 1000m up in Snowdonia, and have done a LOT in between!

Massive thanks to:
* the scouts for being great fun and having a brilliant scouting attitude
* the parents for supporting everything we do
* the leaders for making everything possible
* the exec committee for the behind-the-scenes work in keeping our group fantastic!

Survival Camp

The scout troop spent a weekend surviving off the land – making fires, skinning rabbits, carving spoons, cooking without utensils, sleeping in shelters, making nettle tea & nettle string – and more.

Very impressively every single scout got 100% involved with skinning the rabbits, and sleeping in shelters, despite being somewhat out of anyone’s comfort zone.

Warning – these photos contain photos of scouts learning to skin rabbits.

This weekend, the Beavers and the Cubs went camping in Bournemouth. They spent the weekend collecting stars by doing loads of exciting activities including; climbing, agility trail, low team challenges, backwoods cooking and much more. Some of the leaders even took part in Bushtucker Trials, which involved eating lots of creepy-crawlies.

Well done to everyone who came along!for website

Cubs Spring Term Round-up

It’s been a busy term for the Cubs. With three district competitions, a visit to St. Mary’s Football Stadium, Cubs Have Got Talent, The Great British Cub Quiz and a surprise trip to Scoops, there’s not been a dull moment!

District 6-a-side football runners up!

Our Cubs have earned a total of 140 badges this term, an average of 6 badges each, and all of the Cubs leaving us this term have earned their Chief Scout Silver Award! An amazing achievement.

Scout Peak Climbing Camp

We took the scouts for a weekend of climbing and abseiling in the Peak District.  Despite a shocking weather forecast, we managed to have two days of climbing in the sunshine, and headed home on Sunday five minutes before it rained – perfect!
