Gambia twinning

The Group sent out some parcels to Medina Sering Mass in October. There were lots of useful items-clothing, school uniform, shoes and adult clothing.





There were also school supplies. Items such as paper, pencils, jigsaws, geometry sets, rulers.



Maths text books kindly donated by St. Catherine's school.




First aid items donated by a Leader's company.




There had been a delay at the port for the ship to be unloaded and the items distributed but thanks to Sarjor from HELPING the items got to Medina quickly and were distributed to those in the school that would most appreciate them.

Ice skating at Van Hages

For the last meeting of term, Falcon Pack went ice skating at Van Hages. Everyone had a great time and it was a lovely way to end the year!







Thank you to the Young Leaders and Bagheera for braving the ice with the Cubs and for the other Leaders who helped out for the evening.
We wish everyone a Happy Christmas and best wishes for 2018 as we look forward to another Scouting year.

The Cubs of Falcon Pack made some decorations to hang on their own Christmas trees. They were all able to take a decoration home after the Pack meeting.

Ware carnival

Falcon Cubs and Lea Beavers entered Ware carnival again. This year the theme was 'Flower Power', but we thought outside the box and our entry was named 'Flour Power'. The Cubs and Beavers were dressed as MacDougall's men and the Leaders were chefs!

Falcon Pack camp at Tolmers

Falcon Pack have just had their Pack camp at Tolmers, they were able to take part in lots of activities such as cooking their lunch on a fire-Backwoods style!






After washing up was finished, the Cubs had some free time. Some chose to play football and others to do some craft inside.
 

Some people had obviously had an early start!
 
 

 
Kayaking in the afternoon to gain stage one Paddlesports badge.
 

Then climbing on Sunday morning after camp was packed away. Oli-our former Leader was the instructor for this. Good to see him again.
 
Many thanks to all those who came along and helped at the camp and made sure it happened this year.
