Congratulations to our six new Scouts who were invested this week.
Our 5-a-side team worked hard this year in the District competition. Despite not winning outright, the team did very well.
Scouts had a great time in the snow during their meeting, making snowmen, a snow-pig (and a few snowballs). This was followed up with a hot drink and some indoor activities to dry off.
