We had so many reasons to celebrate, and so much fun doing it!

1st Woodcutts celebrated in style last weekend. It was the first time since the pandemic hit that the whole group has been able to get together, and that on it's own would have been enough reason to celebrate!

After a tractor and trailer ride up to 1st Woodcutts Headquarters from Sixpenny Handley village hall, there was inflatable fun, smoothie making and air dry clay crafts to keep Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers entertained while parents s chatted, tried all the smoothies and a tea or two!

It was then time for the District presentation of awards given by Jane Mearns Assistant County Commissioner International for Dorset Scouts. Awards included Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Chief Scout Awards, many sets of Woodbeads (for leaders who completed their training over lockdown) and Long Service Awards. Special mention goes to the founder of the group, Skip John Curtis, who was presented with his 60 years Long Service Award.

Then there was just time for a group campfire in the evening sunshine before heading home!

Did you hear the announcement about Squirrels? This is the new initiative for Scouting for those aged 4-5? 1st Woodcutts is looking for a team to set up a Dray - if you are interested or have questions email bmjcurtis@aol.com.
