Date: 1st Sep 2016 Author: Scout Websites

THE Scout Group is just returning from its summer break. We welcome new and old faces to the group again this term with a fun packed run upto Christmas. The Beavers are off on a 30th Birthday Party Bonanza at the being inning of October, Cubs are heading down to London for an adventure around the Science and History Museums and Scouts look forward to finishing their Master at Arms badge by doing Archery.

At the end of the summer term we celebrated our young people’s achievements with our annual review. This is where the young people of the group received awards for their achievements plus recognition to our volunteers. This year was summarised by Super Smashing Great! To top it all off two of our adults received national awards for long service amassing 10 years of volunteering to help Farnsfield young people between them – simply amazing!

At the end of the summer term 20 Scouts endured a survival weekend camp near Ravenshead. In between the rain the Scouts started by a small hike to their camp, learnt axe and knife work, took part in building and sleeping a shelter making a giant and to top the weekend finished cooking their meals for their 24 hour challenge. It was a great weekend and thank you to the young and adult volunteers who made the weekend so brilliant.

Scouting provides a second family to lots of young people. It’s a safe place where they can aspire and grow.'
