Silly Chilly 2017

Silly Chilly 2017 is complete and we made it, so honour and recognition for all who made it back.

The setup of the site was cold and wet with snow on the ground but by the time the hardy Scouts turned up ready for the adventure the cold had gone and its was only a little bit chilly.

Fire-pits helped to remove the chill and after a evening of them getting to know the site they went to bed with high hopes of the activities that waited for them the next day.

An early breakfast to give them energy for the day and then they were let loose on the activities.

Zip wire, high ropes, archery, shooting, cave bus, orienteering, police riot gear, laser tag, code cracking, bomb disposal plus many more had them busy all day, after tea was a site Campfire led by Bungle (which is a sight to behold), then Fireworks and a Casino night.

Some very tried Scouts headed back to the tents. They must have all been tired as the group slept in and were almost late for breakfast.

Then a County wide competition on the Chevin, Man hunt orienteering. Still waiting to hear from County who won but we think the 3 Sherburn teams did very well.

Back to Camp for lunch and the camp closing ceremony.

A quick tidy and pack up and it was time for the Scouts to be picked up and to go home.

From the reports we have had they all had a great time and so did we.

A great camp and very impressed with all our Scouts.


Remembrance Service

Thank you to all the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Parents and Leaders who attended remembrance service today at All Saints Church today. Whilst we had clear blue skies the wind was very cold.


Group Badge Competition

This is a great opportunity for your Beaver, Cub or Scouts creative genius to design the group a great logo/badge. This will be used to promote the group and on the group clothing range we are trying to organise.
So to enter your Beaver, Cub or Scout, needs to come up with a design that combines something of Sherburn and something from Scouting. So, for example, they could use King Athelstan’s shield and put a tent on it, or the Sherburn windmill with a campfire.
So it across to them to do their research and let the creativity loose.
Entry form (attached) need to be with section leaders by the 15th November, for judging by the executive.

Names and ages on the form please!

Thanks for your explosive generosity

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the fireworks. Especially to Select Security Systems http://select-security.net/ who once again made a significant donation this year and even picked the fireworks for us. Hope to see you all there on Friday
