We didn’t get a summary post out last week; sorry about that. Instead, this bumper edition will cover the last fortnight!
Alegre Cubs visited Magna Colours
Our Alegre Cubs immersed themselves in the printing industry; stepping through the design, creation and printing stages.
Switzerland Thank You
Those who went to Switzerland received a pen drive filled with photos and videos from their time on the event. Bruce created and a video we shared.

Staying safe online
We shared some great Scouting resources around how to stay safe online. These are useful for both the kids and adults to look over.

This week, we launched our fabulous on-line calendar/diary dates tool. It is by no means complete and will always be getting new content added/updated. Our web team are working with the sections to get content populated. Many leaders are meeting in the coming months to look at 2018 events – so keep a beady eye on the page.

Our Monday Scout troop headed to York for their Christmas trip. The leaders were really impressed with how the scouts behaved and represented the group. Full post
