So it’s been a busy Autumn term to go with a busy year for OSR scouts and the leaders took time to celebrate all that has been achieved this year with a Christmas meal at the Beaufort PH joined by Paul (GSL) who has been involved in many of the sessions the leaders had a lovely meal with a drink and crackers. Big well done to all the scouts that have achieved so much this year and a big thank you to the leaders for volunteering so freely of their time to run such a busy programme. Wishing you all a very good Christmas and New Years.
Just arrived early for Christmas, the Bronze Crest Award Certificates from the British Science Association for all our hard work looking at fingerprinting As part of the forensic science with University of West of England. Big well done to all the scouts that completed all the sections of this project. These will be presented at the start of the spring term with all the badges we’ve achieved.
Tonight the OSR Scouts went to Bristol Hippodrome to see this years Panto with Shane Ritchie “Dick Whittington”. 33 members of the troop met at the front entrance at 6.30pm and made their way to the grand circle where they had front rower seats. The panto was great with very colourful sets and costumes. The cast were brilliant and some of the scenes were hilarious. During the second half after complimentary ice creams the scout troop had a shout out by Shane and the scouts cheered and shouted. What a great end of term activity and now Christmas can begin. One of our new scouts Charlie received his Silver Chief Scouts Awards from Chris. I bet he never forgets the occasion! Big TY to Alison for organising and to all the scouts for their enthusiasm and good behaviour, you all did the troop proud! Have a great xmas and New Years. See you in January
Sunday morning and a trip to the Mendip Hills for OSR Scouts who were caving in Goatchurch system with Marek and Lee. The scouts some of which had never caved before and others being their 3rd experience were all raring to go. Safety brief, kit check and off they went for 2 hours underground. Luckily the rain stayed off so the cave shouldn’t be too damp. When they emerged from the depths a little tired, very muddy but still excited. There were several bullocks waiting to greet them back at the car park. Big TY to Marek and Lee. Next trip already booked in for 26th January 2020.
