A big thank you to Andrea for teaching us how to cook shrimp, courgette and mascarpone pasta.
Blessed with glorious sunshine and the support of family and friends our group turned out and paid their respects to the fallen. Impecable behaviour by all our young people from beavers through to young leaders throughout the parade and service of remembrance in Gosforth central park. We were once again joined by 100th Scout group from Heaton and also, for the first year West Gosforth.
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.
A small group of Cubs & Scouts attended the nature reserve to help the rangers clear undergrowth from a hedge row planted by our scouts on a previous visit. We had to find it first!
The group did Central Gosforth proud with the rangers commenting “what a great group of kids & they worked so hard”
