Thank you to all those who supported our Fundraiser in December. The group has been able to donate to Great North Air Ambulance and Stray Aid as a result of your generosity. They’ve also been lucky enough to receive £1000 funding from Persimmon Homes Community Champions to help us fund an Outdoor Adventure Weekend for our Scouts to Marrick Priory in Richmond. They’re all looking forward to caving, canoeing, orienteering, night hikes, zip wires, climbing and abseiling.
Coxhoe Scout Group have a busy term ahead, as well as the Scout Outdoor Adventure Weekend, Beaver and Cub Scouts are planning a sleepover at Beamish Open Air Museum. Beaver Scouts have participated in the first ever Durham County Beaver Scout Climbing Day. Amazing achievement from some of the youngest members of our Group. The Scouts and Cubs Climb When Ready event was scheduled for Saturday 2 March.
During their weekly sessions Beaver Scouts have been working towards their Health and Fitness, Collector, Cook and Teamwork badges. We’ve been making tasty wraps and had a visit from ATOMS Cake Ninja to make a rainbow breakfast cereal. We’ll be making a fitness video to tie in with the Fitness badge. There is a visit to St Helen’s Church in Kelloe planned too They are also looking forward to a visit from Hoopstarz to help improve our Hula-Hooping skills.
Since the start of the term Coxhoe Cubs have welcomed several new children from our Beaver Scout Section. Cubs have concentrated on learning how to navigate, this has included grid references, drawing a map of an island and learning what each symbol means by using the key. With all of this Information Cubs are planning an evening hike, using the methods learned to navigate themselves to certain locations around Coxhoe. With future activities including a sports evening, Easter crafts and learning the highway code. As mentioned previously Scouts are looking forward to an adventure weekend in February and a County Climbing event in March. During their weekly meetings Scouts are focusing on their cooking badge and developing their photography and videoing skills. They’ve also planned a pioneering challenge for Scouts to enable them to develop core scouting skills in knots and lashings. We’re very excited to be going Scuba Diving with Durham City Scuba in March.
We’re looking for a Group Scout Leader to help develop the group and what we do. Were you a Scout in your past and see the value that scouting can bring to the young people of Coxhoe? Do you have management and leadership skills that you could bring to the group? Are you the person to drive the Group forward?
