Philip Burnett, known to our Cub Scouts as Akela, has been back at home for nearly a month now after a long stay in hospital following serious complications arising from a stroke and is being looked after by his family, including our former Beaver Scout Leader, Debbie Burnett. Phil is doing well but still has some way to go on the road to recovery.
In the mean time, the Cub Pack will continue to run in the safe hands of our former Group Scout Leader, Chris James. Akela, we are just keeping your seat warm for you. Get well soon!

Our first ever pancake breakfast fundraiser was a resounding success. Friends, family, and many visitors (including our mayor George Ferguson) queued up to eat the best American pancakes this side of the Atlantic complete with authentic Aunt Jemima syrup and real fair trade coffee. Scouts, leaders and parents worked fast and furiously to meet the demand. We really made a great contribution towards our building fund. Thank you to all who attended and supported us in our endeavour.
A gallery of photos from the event is now available.
Sunday’s 75th Anniversary Service at St. Paul’s Church was a great success, and we would like to thank all of the past and present members of the 255th Bristol (Channel) Sea Scouts and other honoured guests who came along and made it such a memorable occasion.
We will add further coverage of the service to our web site soon, but in the mean time you might enjoy the following photo gallery on the Post’s web site. As well as photos of past and present members of the group that were taken at the service, you can also get a glimpse of the Channels in action in bygone days with a selection of great archive photographs.
