Rewind: #70 – our week, recapped, plus reminders/bonus materials

Join us for "Rewind" where we’ve got your round-up of reminders and information about the coming week of Scouting, plus a recap of recent meetings and some other events.

Group Scout Leader Update:

It’s that busy time of year, with everyone gearing up for the holidays – so the update is relatively brief this week.

Please don’t forget that we are collecting food bank donations during December. We have donation points in the Scout Hut front entrance and by the Beaver Lodge door, plus Raptor Leaders will happily take your donation during pack meetings. If you could avoid cans of beans or tinned tomatoes, that’d be great please – we have lots of those already. Thank you!

All Sections

It was wonderful to see so many families and friends at the Christmas carol service on Monday. If you missed the photo roundup of the celebrations – you can get to it here.

Here are a handful of the snaps:

Cubs

On Saturday, Cubs from all three packs went by minibus to Miller’s Dale to take part in abseiling off of the bridge. A fantastic time was had, with many brave and fearless Cubs descending the mammoth drop. We shared the pictures here – feel free to take a look.

Here’s a sample of some captured:
