We are delighted to report the announcement, in the St. Georges Day roll of honour for 2018, that the Chief Scout has recognised the hard work that Moira and Fiona have done for scouting by awarding them the Silver Acorn.
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.
A big thanks to everyone who helped out with the Cubs Post this year, which raised over £800 for Save the Children.
Wishing everyone at 183rd Glasgow Scouts a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. The photo is of our tree in the Scout Hall, with decorations made by all sections and by members of LL Dance.

Leaders’ service awards go to Moira (30 years and still smiling), Jonny and Frank have served 5 years each.
The 183 Cubs have been busy, with a visit to Mugdock that included investitures and the Great Western District Treasure Hunt.
Another great achievement for the troop, coming 3rd in the National Finals of the Camping Competition. Well done to all involved, with a huge amount of effort given in difficult conditions.
The team also had a celebratory meal together once the dust had settled!
Summer camp at the Auchengillan jamboree was enjoyed by all the scouts and explorers who attended with some describing it as the best camp ever. It was wet, it was sunny, it was misty so a typical Scottish summer. AJ17 had a very international make-up, with scouting friends from Weurt, near Nijmegen, Netherlands, sharing our camp. Amongst other things the scouts enjoyed an outdoor pool party, a foam party and a paint party. Photos are on our flickr group, with more to follow.
