Life’s A Beach For 70th Beavers

The 70th Beavers had their end-of-term meeting at Lunderston Bay with activities including making a fire to toast marshmallows, a scavenger hunt and a litter pick.

They made a picture from natural materials found on the beach and built a sand turtle complete with a stone-patterned shell. 

Five Beavers jumped the river -- not the Clyde! -- to continue their Scouting adventure in the Cub Pack.

The group thank the parents who stayed to help.

Twelve Explorer Scouts from the 32nd Northface Unit attended Aberdeen District's annual ‘woolly jumper’ activity camp, joining 400 Explorers from all over Scotland.

The activities were of the usual high standard. 

Tasty Time For 70th Cubs

The 70th Cubs finished up for the holidays with a chocolatey night making Easter nests. 

They also welcomed seven new Cubs who said their promise and hope that they are looking forward to all the fun to come.
