D of E bronze take 2

Our second Duke of Edinburgh’s bronze award team completed their expedition last weekend.

The team had glorious sunshine on Saturday to hike from Spofforth castle to Bramhope camp site. But on Sunday the heavens opened, although fortunately subsided to occasional showers, as they walked via Armscliff crag to Kirkby Overblow.

Well done.

Eurojam camp


Colin took Lucy & Matthew with the rest of the central Yorkshire county unit going to Eurojam in Poland on their first unit camp.

Camping at Snowball plantation in York, the camp was for the team, known as the Phat rascals, to start to get to know each other ahead of Eurojam, the European jamboree, next year.

Donations towards the fundraising can be made via Just Giving.

Well done (again)

Our 3 Explorers (Lucy, Morgan and Tom) who gained their Chief Scout’s platinum and Duke of Edinburgh’s bronze award badges earlier this year were presented with their certificates at the Central Yorkshire Scout county awards ceremony.

Morgan also took part in a presentation about his unit (28) attending the jamboree during the summer to an audience including the deputy Lord-lieutenant of West Yorkshire.

Well done

Last night saw us at Hetchell wood to play a wide game then welcome another 7 Explorers who were invested. There was a backlog of activity and staged badges presented and a Yorkshire challenge bronze award.

We also saw Tom, Lucy & Morgan presented with their Duke of Edinburgh bronze awards and Chief Scout’s platinum awards; great effort & well done.
