After an adventurous evening of Kayaking, Leaders Steve and Nicky felt compelled to take their annual dip in the River Thames, closely followed by 25 Cubs!!
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.
The famous summer working party took place on Sunday 30th June 2019 to make sure our grounds were in top shape before next weekend’s AGM and Summer family party. The number of helpers was limited, but with two chainsaws on the go, plus hedge trimmers, mowers, loppers and secateurs, we generated a significant amount of material that fed the bonfire for several hours. Everything is looking great and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday 6th July.
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!
The Hawks Cubs went to Go Ape in Bracknell and despite a downpour of rain everyone had a swinging time!
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.
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!
The 1st Woosehill Hawks Cub Pack attended the Pillows and Pilots camp at the RAF Museum in London this past weekend. Everyone had a great time.
