Scouts Narrating

The Group Celebrated its 60th year in September

Westerfield Scout Group marked its 60th year in September and celebrated with a hog roast, barn dance and firework display at Henley Community Centre. The event was attended by a mix of past and present members and the families of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Scouts victorious again.

A team of eight scouts took part in the Orwell District Night Hike and not only did they win for the second year in a row but this time by a significant margin.

Well done to Meghan, Alice, Rhys, Libby, Alfie, Bobby, Hayden and Edward.

Scouts Weekend at Felixstowe

Twelve scouts, two young leaders, two leaders and a helper spent the weekend before Christmas staying at the Suffolk County Councils residential Centre on Ferry Road. On Friday evening they all went for a walk down to a very cold and windy beach where they played some games. On Saturday, after a hearty breakfast, they set out on an activity / hike around the area organised by Anthony Gibson which they all thoroughly enjoyed even if it took longer than expected.

Saturday evening they sat down to a Christmas dinner cooked by the leaders, followed by washing up and then Pictionary.

Sunday they went for a short (bracing) walk to Felixstowe Ferry, followed by lunch and clearing up.
