2010-06-12 – District Carnival

boat_viking_shipOn Saturday, the 5th Dartford Scout Group was asked to provide the pioneering activities for the Dartford District Scout Carnival in Central Park.  The 5th’s leaders, section assistants and parents helped build 6 structures for the young people in the community to tackle; the Beavers and Cubs, with the help of thier leaders and parents, dressed as Vikings and complete with a decorated Viking longboat, participated in the carnival parade.  The Earley Scout Troop was also victorious in winning the Scouts 5-a-side footballSOCCER competition, which put the cherry atop a great day, which I believe was enjoyed by all.

Special thanks to Maggie and the tea team who who kept us all hydrated on the events so we could focus on the young people having fun.

As always, we have some photo’s, but I can’t be everywhere at once, so please forward any other quality pictures, especially any of the Beavers and Cubs on parade to: jason@5thdartfordscouts.org.uk or on a cd in the Earley Troop mailbox at the hall.
