Sarah said “Thank you for getting such an inspirational man in to talk to the Scouts. Reece said that he now understands more about what his grandad is going through after tonight”
As you all know I am a HUGE fan of the youth of today and if these guys are anything to go by, our future is looking good!
These evenings couldn’t have gone any better. What a great group of “Young People” they all were, they asked questions but even better were so attentive, they all were great and so clued up and it gives me great pleasure to make them all Young Purple Angel Ambassadors, and to announce that 1st Marldon Group the first “Dementia Aware Scout Group” in Torbay.
Please can you share with all your leaders and scouting members how wonderful it was to see many of them in Church this morning to share the Remembrance Service – the readers and standard bearers were fantastic.Thank you again for your help in bringing the scouting groups to join the services, it is wonderful to see the uniformed youngsters, and particularly means so much to the older members of the congregation at times like the Remembrance service. All were a credit to you and the rest of the Scouting Leaders.
Elaine, the Beaver Leader, said “the Beavers were so excited to be sleeping in a tent with their friends and for two nights. They loved being with the Cubs and Scouts and helping to put up the tents”
John, the Group Scout Leader said “we have seen the group grow quickly in numbers over a short period of time across all the sections and thought it was time to celebrate our success and have the whole group camping together.
“I really enjoyed the long walk we went on” Luca said, “we found mossy rocks and climbed muddy mountains.We even got lost !!!”
After a busy afternoon of games and an evening of wide games marshmallows were toasted with hot chocolate. The best part of the Camp, Caitlin told us was “playing spotlight and roasting marshmallows on the fire!”
Joey summed up his first Cub Camp perfectly by saying “Camp was awesome because we did really fun stuff and I was with my friends. My favourite part of camp was the shooting because it was great fun and I have never done that before. We did grid references, hiking and map reading. I learnt lots of new skills like knife work and pioneering. We were put into teams to build a chariot and had a chariot race. We did singing around the fire and had hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows before bed.
I loved staying at camp, it was like having a big sleepover with my friends”
