We’ve been making the most of the summer weather.

Beavers and Cubs went on a two night camping trip to Youlbury, near Oxford, in June. They had an amazing time building dens, climbing Jacob’s ladder, practicing how to light fires, making a go-kart, trying archery, and of course, enjoying eating meals in the open air. A big thank you to all the leaders and volunteers who helped make this trip a huge success, the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Scouts also went camping last month. They spent a week camping at The Gower in Wales during half term. They earned chefs badges, had a bonfire on the beach, went on a 10 mile coastal hike, and had obligatory dips in the sea! Again, a massive thank you to the leaders and volunteers who make these exciting experiences possible.

Speaking of volunteers, our Explorers group desperately needs extra volunteers and leaders to help keep it going. They meet on Wednesday evenings, from 8 until 9:30pm. You don’t need to be available every week, just helping out once a month would make a huge difference. Please contact Adam at gsl@hfscouting.org.uk to find out more.

A huge thank you once again to our dedicated team of leaders and volunteers. You’re all amazing, and your work is greatly appreciated.
