Chess tournament

Group Events Posted on Tue, May 05, 2015 22:32:53


After the previous year when all our best Scout players were missing, this year everyone was present, producing three teams of four, with a young cub team and a half also entering. All who took part took the competition seriously but had fun, both in the competition and round the waiting tables with team manager Adam, Kaa and Otter. A special well done to the team of Oliver, Daniel, Sam and Carter, winning all but one point (losing to Ryan from our second team, storming to the trophy we last won in 2013, good news also to the cubs who came in second, a good day with good rewards, well done everyone



swimming gala 2015

A team of cubs and Scouts entered the competition, with Kaa and Adam leading, certainly with the Scouts experience from last year we went into the competition with some hope, The team as always cheered and shouted for each and every team mate. Each cub or Scout tried their hardest for the team, with some great results. When the final count up was made a few individual wins, brought another 2nd for the Scouts and a 3rd for the Cubs, however that brought the team trophy – the most important trophy – back to the group – well done everyone

A cold Sunday afternoon the 19th joined the rest of the district in a march and then service at Holy Rood church. Whilst walking the heavens opened, but spirits were not dampened.
