Saturday 8th October was a busy day for the three sections of the 72nd Watford South Scout Group The Beavers ,Cubs and Scouts with their Leaders Were celebrating Simon’s day and the groups 65th Birthday.
A big thank you to all the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts that went along to Morrisons and Tesco to raise money for the group by singing some Christmas carols. Thankfully it was a bit milder than last year so there were fewer red noses at the end of the night. In total we raised a whopping £367.01. Merry Christmas!
With the festive season fast approaching, The 72nd is holding a Christmas Quiz to get you in the spirit and possibly win you a few extra pounds to put towards those Scouting themed presents. The quiz is just £2 to enter and it is open to all families and friends of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. For full details and an entry sheet, download the Quiz here.Good Luck!
It is always exciting to be starting a new term at the 72nd. The Beavers start on the 10th, Cubs on 14th and Scouts on 17th of September. The leaders have been busy over the summer and have come up with some fantastic programmes, which can be found in the relevant sections of the site or by using the following links.
On Monday the cubs enjoyed an end of year outing to the local bowling alley in Watford. Great fun was had by all. This event marked the end of another year for the cubs at the 72nd, a year that has seen them taking part in many great activities. Over the course of the year they have cooked outdoors at Lees Wood, built bird boxes for their DIY badge, completed hedge surveys as part of their naturalist badge, attended a number of district events and played Laser Tag which was a definite favourite of the cubs. With the 100th anniversary of the Cub Scout movement coming in 2016, we expect next year to be even bigger and better for the 72nd Cubs.
On Sunday 6 teams made up of families from all sections of the group met in Cassiobury for a photo scavenger hunt. The earlier drizzle and clouds gave way to warm sunshine as the teams battled it out to try and find and photo as many items as possible on the list. Wood lice, ducks, planes in the sky, someone standing in a river were just some of the 30 items that were the the subject of cameras and smartphones as competitors darted around the park before meeting up again to tot up the scores and have a picnic. Congratulations go to Guna Clarke, one of our cub mums and her team who took first place and the prize of £15. A massive thank you go to all who attended and particularly to Jo Burrows for organising the event which raised £15 for the group. On the day all agreed that it was a thoroughly enjoyable event and hoped that it might grow bigger and better in years to come.
