This year the hut was very festive for the event thanks to the wonderful decorations provided by John Gunner of Wood Street, who spent the best part of an afternoon decorating the hall.
We had a great turn out from the parents to see the Beavers read a festive poem. The Cubs perfomed ‘Twas the night before Christmas’, which included a very large sleigh they’d made in the weeks before. The Scouts and Explorers did an alternative version of the “Twelve Days of Christmas” with an ecological theme, and the Explorers and their leaders provided everyone with refreshments.
Skip told all gathered about the groups upcoming Centenary (in 2012) and our plans to redevelop the toilet and kitchen facilities before this date. He also introduced Scott, one of our Scouts who has been selected to attend the World Scout Jamboree in Sweden in 2011.
