Both the Philpot & Peacock Beaver colonies joined in the District ‘Fun with Food’ day at Fleetdown Community Centre on Saturday 6th Feb.
Bases included Chocolate Fountain, Mini Pancakes, Cheesy Crackers, Iced Biscuits, Mini Sandwiches, Peppermint Creams, Choc. Mug Cakes & Edible Necklaces.
They also watched a demonstration of bread making, and were given boxes to take home all their goodies, which hadn’t already been consumed – a lot went home empty.
This evening Kyle was invested into the the Earley troop by GSL Paul and Hawks patrol Leader Daniel. Kyle has now taken his next step on his scouting journey having moved up from the Leigh pack and is wished well and welcomed by all at the Earley troop.
Tonight two Leigh pack Sixers, James and Tom, were awarded the Chief Scout Silver Award by ADCSC Mick Scriven. Both boys have worked very hard with their badgework and challenges whilst they’ve been Leigh pack cubs – so much so that Mick joked that they’d need an extra arm were they to receive any more badges. Both boys are now looking forward to linking with the Earley scout troop for the next part of their scouting journey. Well done to you both.
As you may remember from Tales of our Birthday Parade, The Leigh Pack sponsored and decorated a Christmas Tree at the Spital Street Methodist Church to raise money for The Ellenor Hospice charity, who assisted with the care of Dick. The boys efforts raised £42.98 in donations -Well done lads, every penny counts. A further collection was made at Christchurch on 16th December, during the Cubs and Beavers District Carol Concert, where we raised a further £125.92, which has brought our total thus far to £162.98.
