Goldthorpe Cubs & Scouts Remembrance and Clean Up Sleepover Weekend

This weekend saw over 20 Cubs, Scouts and Leaders gather to undertake a litter pick, clearing Lockwood Road through to Phoenix Park in conjunction with Twiggs Maintenance.

All the way to Phoenix Park, litter pickers all
Then after playing a load of fun games, the Cubs and Scouts, made their own tea; a delicious traditional bangers, mash, peas and sweetcorn and lashings of gravy.  With Apple Pie and Custard for pudding, everyone was filled to the brim.

After a movie, and supper, we slept through to the early hours of Remembrance Sunday morning.  We assembled a parade to the local parish Church and the Cubs and Scouts did their duty and paid great respect to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice.  The flag bearers, their escorts and our new Scout who laid the Group's wreath all did a great job of marking the eleventh hour at the war memorial which is located inside Goldthorpe Parish Church.

Thank you once again to all the adult support who made the weekend and the events run extremely well.

Cubs Scouts visited the Salvation Army - 02nd February

Cubs had a wonderful time visiting Alison & her team at the Salvation Army as part of their World Challenge Badge.
We learnt about the amazing things the Salvation Army do for people in the community and everybody brought something to donate to the food bank.
What a wonderful evening!

What a load of rubbish!

Cubs & Scouts visit Shanks Recycling Centre - 16th Feb 2017
Cubs & Scouts had the fantastic opportunity to visit Shanks Waste Disposal centre at Bolton-Upon-Dearn to see what happens to all of the rubbish we throw away from Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham.
We played a recycling game and learnt how our waste is turned into fuel bricks which are then transported to the energy centre near Castleford.  You have probably seen it - the one just off of the A1M.
