Was lovely to receive so many messages like these:

Millstones got Christmas creative

Don’t look too closely at the following pictures – our Millstone Beavers have been making gifts.

Enigma went to Laser Tag

A Christmas treat for the Enigma (Monday) Scouts. Shauna and Rob took them to Laser Tag in Huddersfield.

Viernes cooked pizza in dustbin ovens

Simple, but dead effective; we used charcoal, dustbins and some cut down grills to create ovens our Friday Scouts were able to cook pizza and wedges within.



Beaver meetings – We have a joint Beaver meeting for all colonies on Wednesday 19th December, (18:30 to 19:45) at the Scout Hut. It’s a Christmas Party so festive dress please, e.g. Christmas jumpers and accessories – no uniform required. This does mean that on Tuesday and Friday there won’t be a Beaver meeting.

Lost property – It’s the time of year where we, once again, try to reunite the remaining lost property with their rightful owners. Please take a look at this Facebook post for details. Anything remaining after Christmas will go to charity.

Viernes Scouts – Friday night is party night. Friday Scouts chose to have a party between 19:00 and 22:00 with a “posh” theme; so, please dress to impress!


And finally:

Penistone Scouts Christmas ‘message’
