It has been an exciting term so far. 

Last Friday we had a lovely evening camping on the edge of Exeter, with a campfire until the early hours of the morning enjoying the cloudless sky and balmy weather. This was after we had a practise of firelighting and some outdoor first aid which thankfully wasn't needed! We've also done some scouting fundamentals and mini pioneering, going back to the routes of the organisation. We cooked cheesecake earlier in the term which everyone enjoyed, apart from the leaders who drew the short straw in whisking the cream! 

And of course we've had our annual St George's day parade with the rest of Exeter district scouts, which was good practise as this weekend, on Saturday the 21st June 2014 we're taking part in Exeter Armed Forces Day! Parading through the city centre with representatives of the armed forces, this is a great honour!

After the parade we will be on the Cathedral Green, come and find us if you want to know anything about the group!
