Photography Night

The Explorers completed a training task last night experimenting with light and gel filters in photography. The Scouts helped by providing some spooky poses and they managed to produce some really good images.

Beavers Fire Station Visit

The Beavers followed in the footsteps of the Cubs this week and visited Hinckley Fire Station. As you can see from the photograph - once again the water display was a favorite!

Bonfire Night

Another great night at scout and once again we crammed a lot in. We did a little bit of map and compass work, followed by a photograph workshop run by explorers. Then we did some bobbing for apples most were successful some almost drowned (don’t worry the apples were ok). Then we had some sparklers. Then we quickly warmed up with a game of football and rounded the night off with some hot dogs and hot chocolate.

Cubs Fire Station Visit

The Cubs visited Hinckley Fire Station this evening. They learnt what the ire Fighters do and how they cope in difficult situations. They had a chance to look around the station and also try on some kit. The Fire Engine as always was very popular as was the water display!

Pumpkin Fun

A great night for the Scouts and Explorers carving pumpkins and practicing their knife skills. The Explorers did a great job running the activity as part of their Young Leader training.

Mock Interview Night

The Explorers completed their recent course with mock interviews last night. The interviewers very very impressed with the content of CV's and covering letters submitted. t appears our Explorers have been a little quiet in the past about sharing their achievements and skills. There are still some Explorers yet to have an individual interview, but we will schedule these in for next term with some further work on "selling yourself". A big thank you to Dr Peatfield for the course and I'm sure the Explores will benefit in the years to come from the experience.

Axe and Saw Training

Excellent night of axe and saw training organised by Jacob Baines. No digits left on the floor so a very successful evening. And well done to everyone that received a badge. I will post details for next Monday’s night navigation at Fosse Meadows in the next couple of days. It’s really important that the kit list is adhered too as we are trying to get scouts expedition ready.


Another fun night tonight. The Beavers designed a machine and then built it out of lego. Each Beaver then had to explain to the rest of the group what their machine did.
