Ian’s Update November 2018

The Scouts have been working on their Teamwork and Team Leader Challenge badges, working together to learn new skills and solve problems. We will be learning about and celebrating Diwali as part of the World Challenge badge and will also be taking part in a mini election as part of Parliament week later in November.

Cubs from 1st Taverham Seeonee Cub pack joined others from the District on a Cub Cycle Day at the end of September, to achieve all elements of the Cyclist badge. After learning about the importance of safety checks and cycle maintenance (including oiling the chain & puncture repair) they set off from Whitwell Station camp site to Taverham Scout HQ, cycling a distance of 8 miles along Marriotts Way. Once there, all the Cubs participated in cycle skills training and each designed a cycling safety poster. Even after all that exercise, the Seeonee Cubs then stayed on for an overnight camp, pitching their tents, preparing their tea, washing up and then completing a nightline activity! They slept well (!) and then finished off their weekend doing archery & whittling an elder whistle.

This was a lovely weekend activity, and we were grateful for the support from the Beaver leadership team to enable this to happen.

Meanwhile the Beavers have enjoyed making campfires and toasting marshmallows in the Scout Hut grounds.
