Bonfire night 2017

Our annual Group Bonfire night event was a great success again this year. We had around 70 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, and even the odd Explorer came along to help out.

The bonfire was the best we've had, the guys that the Beavers had made seemed to almost explode as soon as they were put on the bonfire, the "hot dogs" were definitely the best ever after the Cub leaders decided to go for real sausages!, and the fireworks were better any previous year, mainly because it seems you get three times the fireworks if you buy them a few months before bonfire night...and we haven't even mentioned the glowing light-sabres that replaced the glowsticks this year.

All in all a great success. Thanks to all the leaders for organising and particular thanks to the Traffords for the use of their land and to the Fords for the parking area.

Visit to FADS

This week we went to visit the Fintry Amateur Dramatic Society where they are in the middle of rehearsing for this year's panto - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. David told us all about the plays the put on, the competitions they have won and showed us around the stage and beckstage areas.

Then we got to act out some of the panto scenes. The photo shows six of us being dwarfs together with Owen, who is actual is a dwarf in the panto.

We had a great time and in two weeks we'll be back for the opening night of the actual panto.
