A big thank you to Andrea for teaching us how to cook shrimp, courgette and mascarpone pasta.
The scouts had to follow a route from Montagu Hut to the All Saints Church whilst maintaining social distancing. This was followed by chips and pizza on All Saints field.
It was good to be back together with a night of socially distanced games at Montagu Hut.
Montagu scouts were challenged to cook a pancake using a nightlight and an old bake bean tin.
Cubs and beavers had a good night watching the Newcastle Eagles beat the Leicester Riders.
The challenge was to guide an egg to the floor from as high as point as possible.
The scouts had a good night climbing at Newcastle Climbing Centre. The wall looked very high from the top! A big thank you to the instructors.
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.
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.
Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Young Leaders and Leaders from both Central Gosforth and West Gosforth Scout Groups took part in this year’s group camp at Dilson. Activities included wide games, campfires, orienteering, hiking, backwoods cooking, knots and nightline.
