Pinks Parlour

It’s October, the nights are drawing in and its starting to get a bit chilly. But it is never too cold for ICE CREAM!

This week our Cub Packs ventured down to Pinks Parlour, Bognor Regis, the home of freshly made Gelato Ice Cream. A big thank you to Little Miss Whippy (aka Georgia) and the team for teaching us how the gelato is made in the Ice Cream Lab, encouraging us to sample some new flavours before serving up a delicious treat of two scoops, a topping and a sauces for everyone 🍨

We have a feeling the Cubs and leaders will want to visit again soon!

Up up and away

33 Beavers from our three colonies all had a fantastic Up up and away Sleepover held on 5th & 6th October 2019.
The action started at Tangmere Aviation Museum where the beavers learnt about the history of the site, how a plane works, the different parts of a plane and looking at all the different planes and items the museum has on display.
After lunch they walked to Oving Village Hall where the air activities continued, learning the phonetic alphabet, creating their own flying machine and much more.
After dinner, we all sang a few campfire songs and watched the film ‘Planes’.
After a few hours sleep the beaver were up early, excited for a morning full of activities include making and flying four different types of paper planes to complete the requirements for the air activities stage 1 badge.

Chichester Dragon Boat Challenge 2019

Back again to defend our title!
With 1st Westbourne Scouts and 12th Chichester Scouts providing excellent competition in today’s Chichester Rotary Dragon Boat (Youth) Challenge.

After the heats, 12th Chichester and 1st Barnham had the two fastest times and so went through to battle it out in the final. After a very tight race and with less than half a second between them, 1st Barnham did it, retaining the winning title for another year. You can view all the scoreboard resultshere.

The challenge is not just about a fun day out, it’s a fundraising event for CancerWise and charities supported by the Rotary Club of Chichester Priory. We are proud to say that this year our Scouts raised a total £390 in sponsorship.
