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.
At the Groups annual carol service held at Westerfield Church on Tuesday 9th December Chief Scouts Awards were presented by Jayne Vaughn, the deputy District Commissioner. Two Beavers received their Bronze Award, one Cub his Silver Award and Two Scouts their Gold Award. Well done to all five.
