It was great for our District Leader Volunteer, Simon Cocker, to visit Thornthwaite Scout Campsite last Sunday where 55 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from 1st Thorner and Scarcroft Scout Group were having their weekend camp, supported by 9 leaders. Whilst it was a wet muddy, weekend all enjoyed staying in the dorms or camping out and the numerous outdoor activities the leaders put on. Many thanks to all of them for their hard work in planning and delivering a great camp, making some great memories for all the Young People (for 6 Beavers it was their first time away from home overnight!) It was also fantastic to present 3 of the Group’s Leaders (Stephen O’Boyle, Halen Rafferty and Michael Spong with their 5 year’s Service Awards and thank them for everything they do in Scouting.
