Around 50 Cubs, Scouts, parents, brothers and sisters enjoyed an afternoon of activities at our fun day held at Boxford Spinney campsite on Saturday 15th September. The weather was also kind to us. The day started with a picnic then came the activities which ranged from shooting and abseiling through to fire lighting (no matches allowed) and pizza oven, this was followed by a BBQ tea and finished off with a campfire.
The Westerfield Beaver Colony will be reopening in November 2012 for children from 6 – 8 years old.
Five Westerfield Scouts camped with the neighbouring Orwell District this weekend. They had a great time joining in all the activities, but the highlight of the camp for them (and the Leaders) was being presented with the ‘Stoker Challenge’ Shield which is awarded to the Troop that gets the highest points for a challange that is set during the camp. This year the challange was to build a camp gadget and Westerfield went for a dresser for washing up and draining, James Hughes did most of the work on this.
A team of four Westerfield scouts came second in the District air rifle compeition at Aldeburgh on Saturday.
Well done to Will, James, Nat and Jonathan.
On Wednesday 29th February Westerfield Cubs and Scouts visited the TWAM ( Tools with a mission) warehouse in Ipswich where they were shown around and the work of the charity was explained. During the visit they handed over 40 Scholar packs which were funded by the collection taken at the Groups carol service and packed by the Cubs and Scouts.
We need volunteers, particularly to help get the Beaver section back up and running. If you could spare some time please get in touch useing the contact form.
Welcome to 1st Westerfield’s new website, it is still a work in progress but we hope you like what you see.
