Last year we announced that four of our Scouts have been selected to attend the World Scout Jamboree in Japan, July 2015.
All fundraising is now complete, thanks to a massive effort from the four Scouts and their families.
The video below shows their journey so far, some of the camps and fundraising events they have attended as part of the West Mercia Unit.
The Scouts would like to say a massive ‘thanks’ to everyone who has helped them raise the £12,000 to send them to Japan.

This weekend, Scouts completed their Expedition Challenge on Cannock Chase. They were dropped off on the Coppice Hill car park in Brocton and walked to Beaudesert Scout Camp via the Marquis Drive visitor centre. Scouts were carrying all their kit, including tents, sleeping bags, cookers and food for the whole weekend. They were walking on their own, responsible for their own navigation using OS Maps.
Scouts were greeted into the campsite on the evening by rain, however this didn’t deter them from setting up their tents and cooking their dinner on …

Today, Scouts went for a walk on the Long Mynd in Shropshire. We started on the National Trust car park in Carding Mill Valley and walked up the valley towards Pole Hill, before having lunch near to Pole Cottage. It was windy at the top, but the sun started shining after lunch so it was warm as we made our way back down via Ashes Hollow and Little Stretton to the cars.
Photos are in the gallary, there is also a picture of most of the group below.

This evening, Scouts finished a five week fire safety course, run by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service at Wombourne Fire Station.
During the course, Scouts learnt about how to prevent fires in their homes and at camps. They also thought about what to do in an emergency whilst learning about how the fire service respond to incidents and the equipment they use.
Tonight, Scouts dressed up in fire gear and had a go with the hoses. Everything quickly got very wet!
Below is a group photo of the group. You can see more …

Today Beavers, Cubs and Scouts were at Sainsbury’s Wombourne helping shoppers pack their bags. They were fundraising for general running costs of the group, but particularly for new furniture for the hut and camping equipment.

Thanks to all the children, parents and leaders who helped out on such a busy day. It was great to be able to have someone on every till for most of the day. Also thanks to the Sainsbury’s staff for being so supportive and accommodating.
The total money raised on the day was over £1,600.

This weekend, Scouts stayed at Patshull Scout Camp for the annual group Christmas Camp. Scouts arrived on the Saturday morning and had a full Christmas meal on the afternoon, followed by a quiz, which ended up with most of the leaders losing and getting cream pied!
The camp fire on the Saturday night way enjoyed by all, followed by games in the woods before bed time.

On Sunday after breakfast, there was time for more games in the woods and a ‘Play Your Cards Right’ game.

Photos from the weekend are available in …

This weekend, Scouts camped at Kibblestone International Scout Camp for the annual troop Patrol Camp Competition. The four patrols took part in activities throughout the weekend, including climbing on Saturday morning and the assault course on Saturday afternoon.
In the lead up to the weekend, Scouts devised their own menus and equipment lists. Patrol Leaders were taken shopping by leaders for their food for the weekend, and all cooking was done very ably by the Scouts. The leaders even got to try a bit for themselves which was very pleasing!
