Currently 14 Explorers, many of whom are helping as young leaders in the other sections.
We have just returned from a wet and very windy weekend in the Snowdonia Mountains. With 10 Explorers from the unit participating, a great experience and fun was had by all in the hills, despite what the weather threw at us. There was rumour of a game of Loup Garou in the early hours of the morning followed by climbing on the Sunday, which meant a quiet drive home!
The last couple of weeks have been full on making bird boxes and putting decorations in the hall ready for the Bazaar, all was undertaken with impromptu Christmas songs. Prior to this has been a busy term, helping at the Queens Scout Award ceremony, Group work party, running the bonfire drinks stall and attending the Remembrance Day service.
One of our weekly meetings involved a dance night and was enjoyed by all. We also had an overnight incident hike including investing our new Explorers Carl, Josey and Max at the Brookwood memorial site.
There is a great atmosphere within the unit and to finish off our year we look forward to the Network district wide game, a visit to the London lights and our annual Xmas meal.
On a final note, the Explorers have at last agreed a name for the unit: NESU
