Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Slimming -

Scouts, Cubs and Beavers from across Mon­k­lands had a mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence at a sleep­over with a dif­fer­ence.

They took over Chapel­hall venues Di­noM8 and Gravit8, en­joy­ing an evening of tram­polin­ing and soft play be­fore set­tling down to sleep among the di­nosaur ex­hibits.

More than 140 Scout­ing mem­bers aged be­tween six and 14, along with 25 vol­un­teer lead­ers, took part in the Calder Dis­trict event.

The groups at­tend­ing were 2nd and 9th Coat­bridge; 2nd, 8th and 9th Air­drie; Plains­based 1st Clyde and dis­trict neigh­bours 9th Wishaw.

Event or­gan­iser Alis­tair Mur­ray, who is Group Scout Leader with 1st Clyde, told the Ad­ver­tiser: “It was the first time for both the venue and lo­cal Scouts to hold an out-of-hours event like this.

“It was a great suc­cess, with ev­ery­one say­ing they’d like to go back – and we’re now look­ing to make it an an­nual event in the dis­trict cal­en­dar.”
