On Friday 8th March an excited group of Beavers and Cubs from 1st Brookwood had a whale of a time at The Lookout Discovery Centre in Bracknell. Our youngsters had virtually exclusive access to the venue, only sharing this with a group of Brownies on the night. Such access to a popular attraction out of their normal opening hours highlights one of the key benefits of joining the scouting movement. A great time was had by all, but our Leaders needed a good rest afterwards!
“On Saturday 2nd March, 1st Brookwood took part in the Esher District Day hike at Chobham, with 18 teams taking part. Planning and navigating the route without assistance our Brookwood ‘A’ (competitive) team went on to win the event. Well done to them!”
In January our scouts took part in a district air rifle shooting competition.
This January a group of senior cubs from the 1st Brookwood Group attended a district Science Day event in Woking. The Cubs were blown away by the various experiments conducted throughout the day. To see the fun things they got up to please click here.
From time to time the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts come together for a group event and recently they enjoyed a night of bowling in Woking as you can see here. The lanes were mixed with members from each section and due to the excellent turnout the Scouts were able to test their skills in laser quest during the evening when all the bowling lanes were full.
Early in the New Year 1st Brookwood Cubs and Scouts once again collected Christmas trees from residents in the village raising funds for the group. To see the fun they had in this worthy community initiative please visit the following link.
Our scouts enjoyed some fish and chips at their Christmas Party at the hall. Nice to be inside tonight!
Prior to Christmas the 1st Brookwood group once again entertained commuters at Brookwood Station by singing carols and offering mince pies and raising funds for charity. Please click here to see them in action.
Having previously conducted some bike maintenance at another meeting and a summer bike ride on Sheets Heath, the Cubs ventured out in the darkness this November to test their biking ability on a night ride. The evening concluded with a much appreciated cup of hot chocolate and the cycle ride helped the Cubs achieve their cycling badge.
The 1st Brookwood Scout Group was immensely proud to attend the 2018 Remembrance Sunday commemoration at Brookwood Cemetery which marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1. On a beautifully sunny November morning members of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts listened intently to the service. To see all the photos from this event please click here.
