Family Fun Day – 15 September 2019

Had a great day at Bibbys Farm on Sunday with lots of Families and friends of our members. We learned some new skills in the morning and enjoyed some fun games in the afternoon.

Good Friday Walk

Wonderful walk around the Tolkein Trail at Stoneyhurst. 37 Beavers, Cubs Scouts, Leaders, Parents and family members enjoyed a walk of around 10k. Skimming stones was the favourite sport at our lunch stop by the river.

Red Rose 2018

This year’s highlight for the Scouts was Red Rose 2018, a week long, international Scout Camp held in August in the Lake District. There were around 3000 Scouts from many different countries gathered together to enjoy the comradeship and adventure arranged by the West Lancashire Scouts team.

Our subcamp had been allocated Australia as it’s theme.

St Georges Day Celebrations

This year’s St Georges Day celebrations were very different to our previous ones. This time we met at Lostock Hall Recreation Field and paraded through the local streets, returning to the recreation field to renew our promises and for a presentation of one of our top awards for one of our local leaders.

 

Fun and games was the order of the day following the ceremonies. There were Inflatables, a Zorb, various bases including a drumming come and try it, Hot Dogs, Sweets, Smores, Toilet game and much more.
