Everyone who took part did really well!
Well done again!

Scouts International Night

On Friday the 12th October the scouts held an international night. All scouts and leaders attended in a costume representing a country of their choice. This included Japan, China, France, Australia and Scotland – to name but a few.

The scouts were asked to bring information about the country of their choice and if possible an activity or game relevant to that country. Several games with an international theme were played including French cricket, Sumo wrestling and a game involving trying to pick smarties up with chop sticks!

The scouts sampled a wide variety of foods from different countries and an international themed ‘run around’ quiz was held.

This was a fun night enjoyed by all.

Young Leaders Hit Platinum!

three young leaders at the group were presented with their Chief Scouts Platinum award, this can be regarded as a ‘steppingstone’ to the Queens scout award, the highest in scouting. to qualify for this award, the young leaders have taken part in an overnight expedition, carried out service at the Hunsworth scout group by assisting at Beaver & Cub meetings, organised and run an international night for Scouts & taken part in environmental projects, some of the activities also qualified them for the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award.

The badges were presented by Group Scout Leader, David Sowden & District Commissioner Mike Terry. The young leaders also attended the County presentation evening at Bradford Cathedral.
