Beavers Hobbies and Sports badge night
Boomer Beavers enjoyed spending the evening listening to their peer’s ‘show and tell’ for either their hobbies or sports badge. We had a diverse range of hobbies and sports including weaving, Irish dancing, cyclocross and running. One Beaver’s hobby was baking and she even brought in some cupcakes for the other Beavers to try.
Well done to everyone who brought something in!
Cubs Jamboree in a bag
Bella Vista Cubs welcomed members from the 2019 World Scout Jamboree contingent. They told us all about the journey so far and some of their fundraising efforts. We learnt about America and some of the experiences they will get to have whilst over there.
Enigma troop forum and games night
Enigma Scouts enjoyed an evening of fun and games. We even held a Troop forum and now have a lot of ideas to research for the upcoming year. This now looks like to potentially be a very busy and exciting year. Enigma would like to extend thanks to Richard North for stepping in this week and helping Mike run the evening.
Wibbles learn about the World Scout Jamboree
Whilst it only lasted a few hours, the Friday evening snow caused the usual challenges to Penistone and therefore we had to cancel both Millstones Beavers and Viernes Scouts.
Ghanian appeal fully funded
We were delighted to learn that the desk appeal we supported with Ghana Outlook is now fully funded, and then some!
“Enough money has been raised for the construction of the 200 desks plus a further 50. The extra 50 school desks will be sent to one of our schools built by Ghana Outlook and the Cheshire Fire Cadets in Gbantana where the school has now extra students. A massive thank you to each and every one of you. if your promised donation has not been paid it would be most helpful if you could do it asap. Once they have been made and delivered I will post further photos, but please have in mind its a slower pace in Ghana and distances in the bush can be difficult if not even possible in the wet seasons.” Richard Galliford, Ghana Outlook
