Camp weekend for OSR troop organised by Larah at Brockmead near Easter Compton. We all met up outside Skirmish in Hollywood lane ready for the convoy to the campsite as access isn't the best, all in and back out in a matter of minutes. Good job, then on to the tents which the scouts put up themselves and made their beds up with plenty of bedding due to the time of year. Then each patrol cooked dinner even for the leaders plus cake, washed up, wide game, hot chocolate and then in to bed. On Saturday the scouts tackled the low ropes course (blindfolded) built rafts and launched them on the pond, made camp gadgets, cooked breakfast and dinner with sandwiches for lunchtime all followed by washing up, see they can do it! Campfire with sketches, smores, wide game, more hot chocolate and biscuits oh and lots of cake. Then bed again. Last day was full of de kitting all the tents, checking kit lots of cake after another cooked breakfast and washing up. Another game plus rounder's packed lunch and time for home.
28th October 2016 was the official day for Poppy launch and OSR scouts attended in their smart uniforms to help. There were lots of other voluntary organisations also present and a beef eater down from London especially. As in previous years Jack Lopresti MP was present for the photo.

OSR troop gathered at Aust services and in company with a few parents and pets made the journey across the Severn bridge to Wales and back on foot. Some 4.5 miles according to Google on a very pleasant evening, light winds, no rain a few motorists acknowledged our presence on the hike with a light beep. The scouts had fun and were all rewarded with a muffin supplied by Alison as we reached the finish line. Well Done to all!
