Over 80 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from 66th Bath (Weston Village)
Scout Group, along with their leaders, enjoyed a Christmas Campfire
together at their local Scout Campsite.
The boys and girls, aged 6 to 14, gathered at Bath
District's Cleeve Hill campsite for an evening of songs and skits
around the fire.
Some of the older Scouts led the Beavers and Cubs in songs
including "Penguin" and "Quartermasters Stores" before hot
chocolate and mince pies were served by the Group Executive
Committee, assisted by a team of a parents.
The event is part of the Group's programme of group events,
aimed at getting the whole group together for a shared event at
least once per term. Group Scout Leader, Dan Spencer, said "We see
it as really important for the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to get to
know each other, as well as the leader teams of the other sections,
as it helps develop a real feeling of being one Scouting Family. It
also makes the transition from Beavers to Cubs, or Cubs to Scouts,
much easier for the young people, as they already know members and
leaders of the older sections."
Other Group Events include Group Camp and an annual Group Coach
Outing. Over the final week of term each section will be enjoying a
Christmas Party at the hall
