Our scouts were out in Tyldesley tonight doing urban map reading. They missed a few turns but eventually found their way back to the Start Well Centre.
Yesterday 3 of our cubs were awarded their Silver Chief Scouts award. This is a huge achievement for them. A big BRAVO and all the best as they move on up into our Scout troop.
Cubs went mad tonight making balloon animals. They were having so much fun when the scouts arrived they had a go as well.
Scouts home made potato cakes
We have not yet counted the money and sent it in but we have had a nice thank you from Walking With The Wounded
“Wow! What a great photo! Thanks so much for your support everyone 👍🏽”
And they sent us this photo in return
The Scouts had an amazing time today at Blackpool Zoo. They cleaned out the Zebra stables, fed the camels, held cockroaches, picked up an Elephants tooth, clean out the Giraffe house and then fed them, made wild bird feeders, pulled apart Owl pellets to see what they had been eating, and then visited many of the other animals in the Zoo. Not only do Giraffes have long legs they have incredibly long tongues.
Little did I know when I signed up to be a Scout Leader I would end up shoveling Giraffe and Zebra poop.
The Zoo Education staff were brilliant and really kept the Scouts engaged all day.
Thanks to Sharon and to Young Leaders Sarah and Jess for coming with us.
Huge thank you to Karen our Scout leader for organising another fantastic Scouting Day.
There are loads more pictures in our gallery
Looking forward to Saturdays Be a Zoo Keeper for the Day trip with the Scouts
At long last I have got round to setting up our web site. Watch it grow as we head off on new adventures.
