Scouts scrum on down for team­work

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Pais­ley Abbey Scouts’Beaver group learned the im­por­tance of team­work dur­ing a visit from two rugby play­ers.

The play­ers soon had the boys pass­ing the rugby ball to each other in the“cor­rect” way.

The Cubs, mean­while, looked at the so­lar sys­tem and the Scouts have also been fo­cus­ing on their ‘per­sonal chal­lenge’ which has seen a wide range of out­comes from mu­si­cal per­for­mances to home­bak­ing, ac­cord­ing to the Abbey Her­ald news­let­ter.

Sev­eral new Scouts were in­vested into the troop, with the cer­e­mony tak­ing place at the top of the abbey tower, which proved to be a mem­o­rable evening for both them and their par­ents.

The Scouts also en­joyed a week­end camp at Auchengillan, north of Glas­gow, as part of the Jam­boree on the In­ter­net.

Over the week­end they had the op­por­tu­nity to speak to Scouts in many dif­fer­ent coun­tries and con­ti­nents all over the world, em­pha­sis­ing that scout­ing is a world­wide fam­ily.

Ex­plorer Scout and young leader Joel Young ran a tower open-day and cof­fee morn­ing as part of his fundrais­ing to go to the World Scout Jam­boree in North Amer­ica next year. He raised more than £1,000 to­wards the cost.
