Cover for 7th Bristol Scout Group

A week ago, the 7th Bristol Scout Group had one of their busiest and most successful Family Celebration / AGM events ever with over 130 young people, family members, group volunteers and Cabot District personnel in attendance!

It was a wonderful evening where our happy and vibrant group were able to come together and celebrate the past year in style.

During proceedings, we said a special thank you to some very special members in our group, including our outgoing Treasurer, Andrew, our outgoing Chair, Carlton (who becomes our new Treasurer) and we presented two stalwarts, Peter Newbery and Pete Bateman with the 7th Role of Honour Awards for distinguished services to the group.

We recognised the enormous and lifelong contributions of our Group President, Mike on his recent Silver Wolf Award from the Chief Scout and Carlton was also presented with the Scout Association's Award for Merit for his 'outstanding services to Scouting' by our District Commissioner, Maddie and Lead Volunteer, Chris. We also gave thanks for the life and legacy of former Vice President, Keith Dawes, who sadly passed away earlier in the year and thanked his wife Sue who continues to be a great supporter.

We ended the eventing on a high, celebrating the many achievements of the young people, including presenting 3 Bronze awards and 3 Silver Awards to some very hardworking Beavers and Cubs and the Scouts shared with us their exciting day out on the London Monopoly Run earlier in the year.

Congratulations to our 'Scout of the Year' Holder, Rufus, for being chosen by the Scout Leadership Team to earn your name upon our Trophy and being singled out for doing your best over the past 12 months.

Thank you to all who attended and an extra special thanks to the Clifton Sausage who provided our hot dogs and not least, to Carlton who did a grand job of putting the evening together - with the help of some brilliant helpers. AND - it didn't rain - RESULT!

(Thanks to ACSL Gabriel for being our official photographer during the evening.)

Well done Nina, amazing achievement 🏅

Well done Nina from Mike and Julia Keefe

Well done Nina!

What a hard working bunch of Cubs we’ve got! Today, in preparation for our Group Family Celebration next Thursday, our Cubs helped weed, sweep, clean, garden, scrub and spruce up our outside area. Great teamwork and top efforts from them all! 🏆

Well done to Ted and Zach who received their Personal Award Challenges, thus completing the final part to gain their Chief Scout Silver Awards which we will present next week. Thank you you to Andy who came and supported us this week too and got stuck in helping the Cubs to paint - hopefully not too much went on their uniforms! 🎨

Next week they are revamping the flowerbed outside our HQ to show off at our AGM and celebration evening on the 23rd May. Make sure you sign up - sure to be a great evening!

Members of our group spent a lovely afternoon at Ashton Court as Beavers, Cubs and Scouts joined together for a family picnic and a friendly game of rounders. Then, it was off for a hike / explore around the estate before renewing promises as is traditional to do around St George’s time.

Many thanks to all our families who attended and a special mention to Fox (Phil) who organised the event; despite the hecticness of a recent house move! The weather stayed kind for us too - phew! 🌥️

Well done everyone ⚜️

HAPPY ST. GEORGE’S DAY FROM BEAVERS
What did you do tonight?
Beavers learned about the Scouting Saint…St George….how he was a Roman soldier born in Turkey almost 2 thousand years ago!!
Then we went on a nature walk overlooking the suspension bridge, collecting things to make a St George’s day collage…..we had flags, Beaver Dams and even a fire breathing dragon!!
We also awarded our FIRST Beaver of the month (well done Arthur)!!
Thanks to all the parents who helped too….couldn’t do it without you….

Many congratulations to our Group Chair of Trustees who’s been recognised with a good service award by the Chief Scout!

Carlton has been a real inspiration to so many of us because of his drive and dedication to the 7th Bristol. Despite no longer having his own children Scouting in the group and the family moving out of area, he still supports us as best he can.

I would like to thank him personally. He’s been a great support to me, not only as current Group Scout Leader / Lead Volunteer at the 7th, but also supported me when I was District Commissioner too. I doubt I would have taken up the 7th role if Carlton hadn’t agreed to support me. I’m very grateful for everything he’s done and the impact he’s had on the group.

An outstanding volunteer, quite rightly recognised for his efforts.

CONGRATULATIONS! 🥳

In the final week of term the Scouts worked together in their patrols to have a go at a variety of 'EGG ACTIVITIES " - building the highest freestanding structure to support an egg, building a bridge for an egg over an imaginary river and protecting an egg from being thrown out of the window by a leader. 10/12 eggs survived...

Hope everyone has a great holiday! Looking forward to seeing everyone next term!

Over 60 badges were given out including:
- Astronomers
- Pioneering
- My Faith
- Global Issues

Congratulations to Louis who received his Stage 1 Musicians badge and Shere Khan for receiving his Wood Badge for completing his leader training.

HAPPY EASTER CUBS! 🐣 🥚
