Our Summer Artwork

The Group is supporting the Scout Association Care for Care Homes – 10,000 Acts of Kindness initiative and sent some summer pictures to St Vincent’s Nursing Home. Their manager, Celine, was delighted:

Please pass on our thanks to the scouts and beavers for their lovely art work. I’m sure the residents will be lifted by the wonderful pictures.

Summer Pictures for St Vincent’s Residents

We hoped to have regular contact with St Vincent’s with visits from all sections for games, shared learning, singing and helping out, but Covid and the suspension of face-to-face scouting prevented that; getting involved in this project was a logical step.

We Hike to the Moon

Scouts were encouraged to walk a mile or more – and get sponsored by friends and family – as part of the BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief  Big Day In on 23rd April 2020. If every Scout hiked one mile it would add up to the equivalent of the 240,000 miles to the Moon.

St George’s Day 2020

With the ban on public gatherings still in place on 23rd April we were not able to have our usual St George’s Day Parade, so members from all of the sections wore their uniforms to take part in the ‘Clap For Our Carers’ at 8pm.

The daffs are blooming regardless!

In case you haven’t been able to go past the Scouting Centre recently, here’s a picture of the lovely flowers in full bloom in the planters by the main door. Thanks to Paul Akers for planting daffodils and wallflowers way back when life was ‘normal’.
