When we first discussed the idea of getting a shipping container for storage as an interim measure of the building project, it was suggested we take a lead from the new Wapping Wharf area opposite which uses converted shipping containers for shops and restaurants. They numbered them with a numerical prefix. The idea stuck at we now putting the final touches on the storage container, our designated CARGO 255!
With the lock down rules finally easing, a couple of of us decided to get down to Spyglass a do a somewhat late Spring Clean. We have never completed the painting on the Cargo 255 shipping container and so came armed with sandpaper, wire brushes, paint brushes, and rollers.
Daisy’s location report!
This two minute video from Scout reporter Daisy Ham will be shown at our AGM to bring everyone up to date with the project – and hopefully recruit some volunteers for the fundraising team.
Bristol Channel Sea Scouts AGM
Monday 29th June 2020 7pm
Venue: Your Home
It’s a virtual Celebration Evening!
It’s that time of year again! We will be presenting our Beaver, Cub, and Scout section reports, the group financial reports, slideshows of camps and activities (including stuff from the lockdown), and announcing recent awards for both our young people and our adult leaders. Sorry but this year you’ll have to provide your own tea, coffee, and soft drinks but at least you can made it just as you like it and enjoy it in your favourite cup or mug! Please join in and support the group.
All young people in uniform please. (Leaders too!)
For details of how to join the meeting, please contact us.
A bit later than planned, we are pleased to present a gallery of photos from our Family Camp in September 2017.
We had mixed weather, but the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts didn’t let the rain dampen their spirits as they tried their hands at a range of indoor and outdoor activities. Some of the adults joined in too!
Thank you to Elaine Beckett and the Jones and Morgan families for contributing additional photos to this gallery.
Things have been a bit quiet on this web site for a while, but we hope to provide some more updates soon, including the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts’ programmes for the autumn term and updates to the information on leaders, contacts etc. Further content will hopefully follow.
For the moment, we are pleased to bring you two new photo galleries showing off some of our latest exciting activities, including the brilliant Cub camp the pack has just shared:
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.
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.
