The Beaver Colony continues to meet at Gilwell Park with a full programme of activities.
Our thanks to Clare Bruce who has led the Colony for two years; she is now handing over leadership to Sara Reboredo and Georgie Mavrakis.
Beavers Jessica Edmunds and Benick de Jongh van Arkel gained the Chief Scouts Award.
Our thanks to Jess Moore who has led the Cub Pack for two years and is now handing over to Caroline Pantling.
Cubs gained a Chief Scouts Award (Billy Ayto) and took part in Mince Pie Rally, Kubadoo, Sailing and visits to Gilwell for special activities.
Scouts attended a winter camp at Gilwell, special activities at Gilwell such as climbing and the District Survival camp.
All sections attended a Group Activity Camp at Tolmers in August.
Thanks to Sarah Kerry and Amy Davies who have led the Scout Troop for a year, but are now having to give up as they have moved away from the area.
Beavers and Cubs have a full leadership team backed up by occasional help from parent helpers so it is expected that each section will be able to run a full programme including camps and outdoor activities.
We are trying to build up a leadership team of parents and volunteers to take over the leadership of the Scout Troop to replace Sarah and Amy.
We need to continue training leaders and assistants in the skills they need for their roles, and there is a need for more leaders with camping certificates
