Avon Scout Jamboree gallery

Group photos
Looking good!

May 2016 saw 255th Bristol (Channel) Sea Scouts attending the Avon Scout Jamboree at Westerleigh. Over 4,000 people were present at the event, which saw the Cubs and Scouts camp for three nights and the Beavers visit for a day. The activities were far too numerous to list here, but ranged from traditional crafts to sporting skills and exciting outdoor pursuits. Given the freedom to roam within their designated zones, the Cubs and Scouts could not have wished for a more action-packed three days and nights and, mercifully, the first night’s torrential rain gave way to beautiful weather for the rest of the weekend.

Take a look at our new gallery for a taste of some of the many activities that the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts took part in. We hope to add a couple of videos soon.

Mad March Night 2016

Toasting bread

The 255th Cubs marked the start of Spring last night by attending the Bristol South District Scouts’ 2016 Mad March Night at Woodhouse Park. Activities included parachute games, a search for numbers in the woods, toasting bread on an open fire, a team blindfold trail and nighttime versions of a coconut shy and ten pin bowling. The evening concluded with a campfire led by Avon Scouts’ Andy Scully, which was as entertaining as ever. A great, if chilly, evening was had by all!

We have a gallery with a few photos of the event.

Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade 2015

The 255th Beavers and Cubs ventured out into a windy night tonight to join the Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade. The Cubs carried large lanterns built to their own design, while the Beavers carried decorated lampshades. The parade along North Street drew quite a crowd – “It’s the Sea Scouts!” was often heard from the sidelines.

We have added a gallery with a few photos from the event.


The Cubs were hard at work tonight preparing for the Bedminster Lantern Parade on 12th December. Some great designs were taking shape!

Thank you to all the parents who stayed to help.

Pancake Breakfast – thank you!

Many thanks to everyone who helped at Saturday’s pancake breakfast, whether the Scouts who waited on tables, the cooks, the poor person washing up in the corner, or those of you who came and ate carbohydrates for such a good cause!

pancake breakfast at St Pauls SouthvilleThanks too to St Paul’s Church who let us use their building at no cost so that all proceeds can go towards the rebuilding of our Spyglass Scout centre next to the church. We don’t know quite how much was raised yet as some scouts, cubs, and beavers will be handing in ticket money this week. Don’t forget to do that when you meet on Monday or Wednesday.
