A great big thank you to, the residents of Holbeck #Barrow-in-Furness, and friends/parents of the 17th (St. Perran’s) Scout Group, for your support of our Tea Prepared bake sale today. The funds raised by the #Beavers #Cubs and #Scouts will help keep Scouting active on Yarlside.

What A Great Success! – thanks to all the volunteers young and old(er) donating cakes and prizes, manning stalls, and buying scrumptious goodies, I believe the bake sale raised about £400…. Thank You All!

Weint Wood in October: While the Cubs and Scouts Reside
The smell of damp canvas; campfire popping.
Boots by the door, muddy and sopping.
Dense pillows of moss, carpets of leaves,
Bracket fungi and millipedes.
Slugs and snails (dare you touch these?)
Friends running, stick-in-hand, through the trees.
Laughter of sparrows and shouts of the crow,
Teens perched round the fire, faces aglow,
Until witching hour; reluctant to bed.
Sleep sound ‘til the morn; stomachs full and content.
By Bagheera (17th Barrow Cub Scouts)
Cub Scout Cultural Inspiration at Poetry OpenMic (DaltonLitfest)!

There is a nationwide shortage of leader volunteers – a very interesting article from the BBC and Cumbria County Scouts webpage at:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39560023 and http://cumbriascouts.org.uk/more-cumbria-scouters-than-ever-but-waiting-lists-at-an-all-time-high/
Our group is also short of leaders and helpers from ad-hoc help for a couple of hours, to section and group leaders with a few hours each week or more, and everything in-between.
It can be very rewarding and enjoyable, and full training is provided as required (see Volunteers)
Could you help?

She has finally decided to call it a day having enjoyed all these rewarding years of volunteering, and we could not let her go without a special evening to celebrate how much she has meant to the current cubs, previous cubs (now Scouts) and leaders.
Here is a photo gallery from some of the activities (click on item, and then again on following image to see full size):
