It has been another action packed couple of weeks for all of young people. On Saturday 11th November we had over 60 of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts turn out for a Community Action Day organised by City of York Council’s Environment and Community department. They did an amazing job of looking after the Hob Moor and surrounding areas, you can read more about it in the Blog Section.
On Sunday, a small group of Cubs and Scouts attended the Remembrance Day Service at St Edward the Confessor Church where Ian, our Group President, laid a wreath at the Cenotaph on our behalf. Our young people did a tremendous job representing the Group and we were all very proud of them.
Friday Evening was the City Top Awards evening, where some of our Beavers and Cubs were recognised for their hard work in gaining their Bronze and Silver Chief Scout Awards. Unfortunately I was unable to make the evening, but enjoyed seeing the pictures and I am incredibly proud of the hard work of our young people and their achievements! Well Done!
There has been some fantastic news for some of our Scouts and Explorers who attended a selection weekend for one of the Units to attend the 24th World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia in the Summer of 2019. A huge congratulations to those that were successful in being selected, this is the start of a very exciting adventure for you all.
