This week we are making Know Boards. This is a fun task of making 5 or 6 knots, and then sticking them to a board as a presentation. It has practical uses as it teaches the Scouts some of the important knots they may need when camping or hiking.

This week we are going to have go at pitching the Scout Owned Tents. This has two practical reasons. Firstly, it gives the Scouts the opportunity to pitch some tents in an environment where we don’t need to sleep in them. And secondly it gives us leaders the chance to have a look at the tents to see if any of them need parts replacing.

We are cooking this week! Bangers and Mash is the menu on offer. We will be cooking on small gas fires, all properly supervised, so the Scouts will not be needing dinner. Unless they drop theirs…

This is the last week in this half term, so we thought we would do something more exciting tonight. So we are going to Go Outdoors (Behind ASDA) to have a go at their Climbing Wall. There is a £2 donation for this activity, all of which goes to Mountain Rescue.
