Section Update – Dec 2016

Posted on December 25th, 2016 by Webmaster

Our Beavers have taken part in ‘My skills challenge’ and; as part of the Healthy eating challenge,
have been discovering how much sugar is found in some food and drinks, and why this may not be such a good thing.

Cubs have taken part in activities that will qualify them for the Community fire safety badge, whilst also enjoying a Halloween evening and a fire work party with the usual bonfire food. Three of our cubs have recently moved up to scouts and seem to have settled into the troop. Several cubs and leaders attended the remembrance Sunday, parade and service at East Bierley.

Scouts have taken part in Patrol and Troop forums, this enables members to, for example, propose future activities, present ideas for troop meetings and prepare menus for camps etc.
As part of the Creative challenge badge, scouts took part in a musical evening when they made a number of instruments which they used to accompany themselves whilst singing camp fire type songs. When did you last see a homemade tea chest base being played?
We have also made items such as key fobs, woggles and friendship bracelets from para cord (coloured nylon cord) along with whistles made for hollowed out branches.
Scouts and leaders also attended the remembrance service at East Bierley.
The month ended with the annual weekend at Wharfeside House in Kettlewell. The weather on Saturday was perfect for a Dales walk, frozen ground underfoot, cloudless blue sky and bright sunshine all day. After a village treasure hunt on Sunday morning, the weekend was rounded off with an afternoon visit to Skipton baths. A great weekend!

Scouts Kettlewell 2016

Posted on December 9th, 2016 by Webmaster

The Scouts annual trip to Wharfeside House Kettlewell was held over the weekend of 25th – 27th November 2016

For the walk we drove into Buckden and walked up the hill out of the car park and over to Cray where we used the stepping stones to cross the River Wharfe, we then walked along the hillside to Scar House and before dropping down to Hubberholme we visited the ‘Worm Hole’ which every Scout successfully climbed through the dried up waterfall. From Hubberholme we followed the River Wharfe into Buckden and drove back to Kettlewell.
