Congratulations to everyone who participated in our successful Pinewood Derby this month. Baloo organised a great event for the Cubs, complete with a bespoke, hand-made racing track and digital rankings. Spread over two nights in July, it was an exciting and entertaining two sessions for all concerned. Thanks to all the leaders and parents who helped to make it happen, and well done to James for being a worthy winner!

255th Beavers descend on Slimbridge

The Beaver section had a great time today visiting the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust centre at Slimbridge. The seven Beaver Scouts who came along spotted lots of different birds, saw the otters being fed, met some amphibians, and learned a little about how real beavers live in the wild. They also had lots of fun in the playground.

Trips like this are the essence of what make Scouting great. Several other Beaver colonies were there too, and the 255th Bristol (Channel) Sea Scouts would just like to thank the organisers for arranging a fun day out for all!
