Today was the official Poppy launch organised by The Royal British Legion in Stoke Gifford, the OSR Scouts attended Parkway Train Station at 2pm to help with the official photograph amongst other organisations. It will be published in the local papers, newsletters and websites like ours. The S/G RBL have been amongst the highest fundraisers in the country and every year we help them with whatever they need. Thank you to all the scouts that attended today.
so tonight was a classic too much to do and not enough time.......
Well tonight was classic after the formal parts we split into patrols to plan the menu, list of ingredients and method for the 2 course meal for the international evening after half term. Mixing the xmas cake ingredients ready for baking and then decorating etc later in the term and as if we didn’t have enough we thought in grass heads as a patrol competition to see who could grow the longest hair! A great night was had by all. Good job scouts especially all those that volunteered to cleanup etc.
The leaders would like to express how proud we all our of the beavers for how well they listened to Richard on Monday. With the build up to the 100 year Centenary of WW1 we sat the Beavers down and they listened to The Last Post and Richard telling them about WW1 for around 15 minutes. None of them needed to be told to 'shoosh' and they all paid rapt attention - Well done Beavers.
After listening the Beavers were shown how to make a Bi-plan, photos of which you can see below.
