Family fun day

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.

Scouts gain ‘Stoker Challenge’ shield

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.
