Lockdown hasn’t stopped the Merlin Scouts from meeting

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:


That’s why a few people aren’t in shot as they are jumping around!

1st Woosehill AGM 2019

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.

Documents from the AGM are available here.

Berkshire Dragon Boat Regatta 2019

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.

Fire Circle Grand Opening

An inaugural group campfire was held on the 29th April to celebrate the completion of the new Fire Circle. The usual songs were sang around the fire whist steady stream of hot chocolate flowed.

Huge thanks to Steve and everyone who helped build the new fire circle and to all the leaders and children that came along to see it first ablaze and make it a special night to remember.

Beavers (& dads) put on a Mother’s Day treat

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!
