Thanks to everyone who turned up at the AGM last night. We heard impressive stories from the Beaver, Cub and Scout Leaders. I think the Beavers took the prize for the most exciting activity – a trip to the local gliding club!
The Beaver, Cub and Scout leaders are currently working on the programme for this term. Details will be posted shortly but for the moment assume that the first meeting is likely to be in the week beginning the 10th of September. Sadly the hut won’t quite be ready for the start of term, but a lot of progress has been made.
As ever, if you’d like to get more involved with the Group and lend a hand at some meetings, the leaders would be very pleased to here from you.

Work on the hut is progressing well.
We have completed the external work of phase 2 and are busy plaster boarding the walls and getting ready for the second fix-stage.
Much of this work is being carried out by volunteers, under the watchful eye of our builder. If you want to get involved please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Mark the spot in your diary!
The Group AGM will be held at 7pm on Tuesday the 2nd of October.
As the new Scout Hut is not yet complete we will be holding it at Broomley First School.
Cubs always enjoy a visit to the woods. After building shelters and camp gadgets, they cooked themselves bread twists over an open fire. A great way to spend the evening.
This weekend the Cubs were treated to some Archery master-classes thanks to colleagues in Border Reiver Archers. If you look closely you might notice that some of the parents couldn’t resist having a go too…
Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from Stocksfield joined members from all over Northumberland, visiting the Pirate Marra Camp. There was a range of activities to try (though I don’t remember Captain Hook riding a segway)
Congratulations to the Scouts who won the District Mountain Bike competition at Slaley Woods this year. They had to master a challenging track designed by leaders from the 1st Hexham Group. Cheering them on was local school teacher (and Scout Leader) Alex Hammersley whose Mountain Bike Club at school could well have been our secret weapon!
