Lockdown hasn’t stopped the Merlin Scouts from meeting – here we are last term doing our best to work out a secret code, can you work out what it is saying?! Luckily this term we are mostly back to COVID-safe face-to-face scouting, with our activities taking place in limited numbers and outdoors.
FYI the code translates to:
TURN AROUND FIVE TIMES AND BLINK YOUR EYES THREE TIME JUMP UP AND DOWN TEN TIMES
That’s why a few people aren’t in shot as they are jumping around!
On Saturday 6th July 2019 the 38th Annual General Meeting of 1st Woosehill Scout group was held. The new campfire circle came into it’s own with Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and their families enjoying a great time singing campfire songs around the fire. Many thanks to everyone that attended and special thanks to those involved in organising the event.
The Hawks Cub Pack competed fantastically in the Berkshire Scouts Dragon Boat Regatta coming second in both our heats despite competing with teams with more members in their boats. We had a brilliant time on the water and then ‘relaxed’ on the climbing wall.
The Hawks and Kestrels Cubs had a fantastic pirate themed 2019 Summer Camp at Runways End activity centre in Aldershot. We had great weather, lots of fun and adventure and enjoyed caving, kayaking, abseiling, campfire songs, space hopper races and ….. walking the plank!
After an amazing amount of hard work, the new Campfire circle area has been transformed from something that looked like the Somme battlefield, to a well presented area ready for planting. I’m sure the British weather will deliver the rain needed to help the new grass flourish.
Eager Beavers at 1st Woosehill Scouts pulled out all the stops to
lay on a special treat for the most important ladies in their lives! The
youngsters opened the Scout Hut doors for the annual and much-anticipated
Mother’s Day Cafe and pulled out all the stops to show their mums how much they
mean to them. Once greeted at the door by their ‘waiter’, each mum was
accompanied to a table and asked for their refreshment order. Having delivered
a hot drink and specially decorated cookie, the Beaver the joined them for some
time together. As if that wasn’t enough, the Beavers then presented each lady
with a gift bag of goodies that they had made earlier in the session. To help
put on the event, a group of dads helped out with the crafts and manned the
kitchen, making hot drinks and doing the washing up afterwards – many thanks we
couldn’t have done it without you!
