Cubs spent some time pre­par­ing for their week­end camp at Cranham Scout cen­tre. They packed sev­eral boxes of games they can take with them, and made sure they all work. Games like draughts, chess, Monopoly and so forth. Hope their week­end turns up not so wet as we have had lately.

Beavers spent some time mak­ing in­ge­nious Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions and did a bit more work on their science badge. Thank you Joanne, Nikki and Anna.

Ray, the new care­taker who will be look­ing after the So­cial Cen­tre from this week, was taken round and shown the ropes. I have been care­taker for over 20 years and sadly de­cided there were sev­eral things needed do­ing which are bet­ter han­dled by some­one a lit­tle younger. Good luck Ray. I will still be look­ing after Book­ings but things like re­pairs, look­ing after light­ing and en­sur­ing the place is se­cure, and grass cut­ting, and so forth are now handed over.

The next Ro­ma­nian fam­i­lies meet­ing all day in the Cen­tury Hall will be tak­ing place on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 22. They are now un­der new man­age­ment.

The Scout Troop has gone into a rest pe­riod where only one or two Scouts turn­ing up. Looks like we will have to wait till the new year when per­haps some Cubs reach­ing 10 will ven­ture to the Scout troop. Boys and girls aged 10 plus have a great ex­pe­ri­ence. How­ever they all do even­tu­ally reach 14 and move up to Ex­plor­ers in Chel­tenham. Look­ing for­ward to the fu­ture.
