A busy term – January to March 2024

Date: 27th Mar 2024 Author: Bev Clear

This term, our Pathfinders have been busy, buzzing with excitement and enthusiasm. Our Beavers, the youngest members of our group, have been on a mission to make a difference. They’ve taken on the challenge of litter picking with gusto, wielding their litter pickers like superheroes on a mission. As one Beaver eloquently put it, they’re “making the world a better place” one piece of litter at a time.

Also a a group we also participated in the Salfords Spring Litter pick event which showcased their Beavers, Cubs and Scouts commitment to environmental care and community involvement.

Meanwhile, our Windsor Pack Cubs have been tackling challenges head-on, proving their resourcefulness and creativity. From the seemingly impossible task of crafting a dog out of a single A4 piece of paper to mastering skills with limited resources and they were only allowed to tear it , they’ve demonstrated great thinking.

We recently had the pleasure of hosting Jenny from JEM Taekwondo, who helped our Pathfinders take a leap towards their Skills Challenge badge. Jenny was impressed by the dedication and enthusiasm of our Cubs, highlighting their exceptional performance. Thank you to Jenny for her invaluable contribution of her time.

 

Additionally, we were delighted to welcome Tim, a local celebrity (some may say) renowned for his work in schools.  Tim met with the Cubs.  Tim’s engaging performance, featuring singing, magic tricks, and origami, captivated our young Pathfinders and left them spellbound. His visit not only entertained but also enriched our Cubs’ experience, enabling them to earn their Faith badge while having a blast.

We are committed to providing all sorts of experiences that foster personal growth, community engagement, and lasting memories. Please do let us know if you have any skills you can share with our groups we would love to meet you.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
