Ian’s Update August 2018

The Scouts have had a very active programme during the last month with a night’s water skiing at Taverham lakes (more photos on Facebook), making camp gadgets, learning how to use axes and saws safely and building and firing high powered water rockets that flew the entire length of a football pitch! (Videos of these on Facebook are excellent).

 

They also completed a litter pick around the village, collecting 10 bags of rubbish and have recently help raise over £500 packing bags at Tesco’s for two of the Scouts attending the world jamboree next year.

August sees the sections break for a well-earned summer break – well except camps such as Norjam, the International Scout Jamboree taking place at the Showground once again.  This takes place every 4 years and only feels a short time since the last one!   Our Scout Troop will be taking part again and there will be a full report later in the year.

The group is still seeking adult support with vacancies for Chairman and Group Scout Leader.  For information on these roles please contact us.

Have a good summer break!
