REMINDER: District Parade – Linlithgow

The District Parade – involving Scouts from all over West Lothian – takes place tomorrow, 22 April in Linlithgow.

 

The bus is leaving Brucefield Church at 1.30 pm.  We expect to return around 4.30 pm.  Everyone is asked to wear full uniform including smart trousers and shoes please.

 

Parades are perhaps not as exciting as many of the other activities we do but they are part of being a Scout.  We would love to see as many people there that can attended.  Let’s show West Lothian what a strong and successful Scout Group Whitburn has!

Explorer Camp

 

The Explorers visited the Craigs campsite Friday night as part of the Zodiac Challenge (6 Nights Away, in each of the seasons, each time camping with a new challenge). Given the weather the previous week, we were hopeful to complete the sub-zero challenge (camping in temperatures below 0c) but the recorded temperature remained a stubborn 1c. Very cold, but not cold enough!.

Instead the Explorer’s camped in our groups Tipi Style tents, completing the “In an unusual tent” challenge.

The explorers had a good time learning core camping skills including building and starting a fire when wood is very wet, cooking on an open fire and how to work with axes and saws on a campsite.

We also had time to help a out of doors first aid training course by being “casualties”.

Beavers and Cub Scouts are ON Tonight

We’re back to normal tonight!  Beaver and Cub Scout meetings are all ON at their usual times.

We look forward to seeing everyone back again with their snow stories.  See you soon.

Beaver and Cub Meetings CANCELLED Tonight

Due to the current weather conditions, and the forecast for later tonight, Beaver and Cub meetings will be CANCELLED tonight.

We try really hard not to cancel meetings but we’re going to have to admit that the weather has beaten us this week!  SORRY!
