With the reminders out-of-the-way, let’s recap the week.
Beavers Christmas party
All three Beaver colonies joined together to round off the year by holding a party in the barn at Cubley Hall. thank you to Janet and John for hosting us and providing the buffet! Also, thank you to the parents/guardians who donated a fantastic £55 for “Heads Together”
Cubs Movie night
On Thursday, Alegre and Bella Vista Cubs celebrated the end of the term in true Hollywood Style! They watched the Christmas classic Elf and enjoyed a feast fit for the Three Wise Men!
Wibbles scouts had a party theme this week. We played lots of games with individual and team challenges too and the aim of the evening was to win as many “name credit”‘ as possible that were posted into a ballot box and drawn at the end of the evening.
The star prize was won by Isabella who is also now the troops oldest scout as we say goodbye to Tommy who starts a new scouting venture into Explorers.
All scouts received a Christmas gift and we also said thanks to Eleanor and Joe who helped for the evening as they were back from university.
Explorer’s pizza night
Explorers held a game and pizza night this week with a short quiz thrown in for good measure.
The leader team are meeting over the holidays to plan activities for the new term so if anyone has any ideas that they would like to try then please let us know.
Reminder to all Explorers to log into D of E and update their evidence for authorisation.
