    Lest We Forget

    Tonight the Cubs made Poppy's for Remembrance and were read the following poem

    I am not a badge of honour,

    I am not a racist smear,

    I am not a fashion statement,

    To be worn but once a year,

    I am not glorification

    Of conflict or of war.

    I am not a paper ornament

    A token,

    I am more.

     

    I am a loving memory,

    Of a father or a son,

    A permanent reminder

    Of each and every one.

     

    Im paper or enamel

    I’m old or shining new,

    I’m a way of saying thank you,

    To every one of you.

    I am a simple poppy

    A Reminder to you all

    Rover 100 Challenge

    When a scout comes to the end of their time at the group, they have the option to join Explorers (14-18), then network (18-25). These older sections are known as 'rovers'.

    2018 marks 100 years of rover scouting, so this year UK Network are taking part in challenges to celebrate this and remind us of the values rover scouting was founded on.

    January's challenge is to collect as many items as possible for a local food bank, and Newcastle Network have chosen Connect 25  to donate our items to.

    Connect25 Foodbank is based in Byker but supports people all over Newcastle. They are a group of volunteers delivering donations to the needy, believing that way is more dignified than people coming and queuing at a regular foodbank.

    We've set our sights on getting at least 100 items together, so I'm asking as many people as possible for donations of food to help with this!

    The things they have particularly asked for are:

    Sugar

    Cereal

    Long life milk

    Cooking sauces

    Spread (i.e. jam, chocolate spread etc.)

    Tinned meat

    soup

    Other things that they require are items with long dates, pasta, baked beans, dilute juice, tea, coffee.

    If you could check your cupboards for spare/unwanted stuff? Possibly add a couple of items to your weekly shop?

    Every donation wold be greatly appreciated, if they could be brought to a normal 82nd meeting and I'll take them to the foodbank.

     

    Many thanks in advance,

    David

    Assistant Scout Leader

    Cubs @ Farm 2 Fork

    On Friday night the Cubs went to Tesco for a Farm to Fork session.

    Really interesting to find out where our food comes from and the Cubs really like the fish guts. (well some of them anyway)

    Many thanks to Dean at Tesco for showing us round and leading the session

    Jamboree on the Trail 2015

    Well after a dubious start with the weather, we enjoyed our Lookwide Walk for our annual Jamboree on the Trail. This walk retraced the steps to the very first Scout camp undertaken by Baden Powell in 1908.

    DSCN0065

    The cubs especially enjoyed celebrating James' 10th birthday with cake at the top and Kate was invested by Jennifer into the Cub section... welcome to the 82nd!

    DSCN0074

    Having all renewed our promises, we were all awarded our JOTT 18 badge by Carol.

    DSCN0077

    And enjoyed a slightly speedier downhill walk back to the car park!

    DSCN0084

    Hope you have now all warmed up!!
