The Scouts and explorer scouts went camping at Buckmore Park this weekend. On Saturday they took part in the Jamboree on the trail. There were over 250 people on the trail starting from Buckmore park.
The weather was good for most of the weekend and it was great to have our first camp of the year.
The Scouts had a ‘Red Nose’ themed evening on monday night. They tied knots in red lace sweets, swapped jokes and made red coloured cakes. The subs collected for the evening will be donated to this years Red Nose Day appeal for comic relief.
Once again this year the Group supported the Blytheswood Care Shoebox appeal with young people and the leaders donating shoeboxes with gifts for the appeal.

The LED is 50 years old this month – but the Cubs and Scouts didn’t know that when they played with some this week.
The long exposure pictures the Scouts made look great though.
The Scouts had a weekend camp at Thriftwood Scout Camp in Essex.
