27 of our Beavers, Cubs & Scouts took their mum or dad on an adventure to Earleywood camp site in Ascot to participate in the annual District Parent & Child camp held over the 18th/20th September.
We played games and completed in activities around the theme “Game On”, bringing back such classics as “Space Invaders”, “Old Maid”, “Mouse Trap” and “Hungry Hippos” to mention just a few.
Over the weekend we completed the “Crew Challenge” to build a complete chess set, played 10 different games and completed over a dozen “Trading Post” challenges.
To say we were busy would be an under-statement, however we all had a fab time and our hard work paid as we won the “Trading Post”.
Well done everyone so proud of you all and looking forward to next year “Lets get funky now”

It was an early start for 30 adventurous Beavers on the morning of the 20th June getting onto their coaches from Bracknell Leisure Centre armed only with a packed lunch and enthusiasm. Before you knew it hey presto as if by magic arrived at Gilwell Fun Day, handed their tickets and off they went to take on the challenges set down before them.
Hours of fun; rope making, bouncy castles, archery, water rockets, funfair rides, zip lines, grass sledging, climbing walls, water rafting, it’s exhausting typing everything they did.
It all ended in a splash as the heavens opened with torrential down pours of rain rain rain and we all had to run for it to the coaches, our enthusiasm was not dampened thou and sang camp fire songs all the way home.
Awesome a quick drip dry to bed and sweat dreams of adventurous challenges.

St George is the Patron Saint of The Scout Association. This is only one of two important Scout dates and it will be good to see as many of our members at this parade and service.
We will be meeting outside Bracknell & Wokingham College at 2.10pm to form the parade and set off at 2.40pm to arrive at St Joseph’s Church for the Service commencing at 3.00pm and finishing by 3.50pm.
There will not be a parade after the Service, therefore all Scouts, Explorers, Cubs and Beavers can be collected from the Church.
Parents and their families are very welcome to attend.
Please wear full uniform and bring a coat should the weather turn for the worse.
A decision will be made at 2.20pm. if the Parade has to be cancelled due to severe weather.
Car parking is available in the College car park, but you must leave before 4.30pm
Bracknell & Wokingham College support 2nd Bracknell in running programmes for our sections and we are pleased to assist them in marketing Project Response.
Project Response involves the Uniformed Public Service department and the Mechanics department of Bracknell and Wokingham College and the local Police Cadets in creating a ‘Public Service Vehicle’. The vehicle will be equipped with lights and sirens, markings and other equipment for role plays, open events, media opportunities, public events and general training. The main aim of the project is to promote better quality of training and education for the emergency services of the future. In an age of ever increasing funding cuts we are attempting to fill the void a little bit, however we need to raise £1500 in order to complete the project. If you can help us please donate on the following link: http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/project-response/
Thank you for any help you are able to give for this project, we hope this will result in better quality emergency services in the future that will one day save lives.
