Look No Nails!

This week the Scouts built a Leonardo da Vinci bridge – which just uses pieces of wood and friction – no nails, no rope, no glue!

Not sure whether this qualifies as part of the Pioneering badge or not, but still a lot of fun.

Working Together

The Scout Association is keen for people (within Scouting as well as outside it) to recognise that it is “Youth Shaped” – all about young people and adults working in partnership together. UK Scouting is focusing on February to really support young people and volunteers to embed this traditional part of Scouting into what we do and celebrate what are already good examples of Youth Shaped Scouting.

Groups are challenged to run a series of YouShape activities where the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts take a significant role in determining the programme. One way that sections can do this is to declaring it for everyone to see, by creating a pledge that both leaders and young people can sign up to.
