Politics Night

A big thank you to Catherine McKinnell MP for spending her Friday night having a very interesting session with Central Gosforth Scouts. Topics discussed included education, parliament and brexit.

James Cook Sailing Weekend

Twelve scouts were lucky enough to spend a weekend sailing aboard the James Cook (a 70 foot ketch owned by the Ocean Youth Trust North). The weekend included learning how to work as a team to sail the boat, sailing out at sea, navigating up the river Tyne in the dark, spending the night tied up to Newcastle Quayside and learning how to live together in cramped conditions.
