Winter 2012/2013

In the last few months the cubs, scouts and beavers have done several bag packing events raising funds for the group.  Thanks to Morissons, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose for allowing us into store to do this.

The scouts have also been up to a wide range of activities. From making easter eggs, to learning how to marshal aircraft.  Over easter weekend the troop walked overnight from Exeter Quay to Exmouth, arriving just after midnight.  The camp was finished with some entertainment and a game of cricket-baseball a mix-mash of rules that only requires a ball and a small grass area.

During this week some of the older scouts are joining Devon and Somerset Wing ATC to go gliding with the RAF at RMB Chivenor. This is one of the benefits of being one of less than 60 RAF recognised air scout groups in the UK.

This term the group are planning several camps from around Exeter to further afield along with completing several badges. The leadership team is also in the process of arranging visits to RAF St Mawgan, and gliding for all the troop.
