- Squirrels Launch!
On Thursday 4th November 2021, we launched our brand new section at the 5th Bebington Scout Group – Squirrels! We welcomed 18 new members along to start their Scouting journey with us, and much fun was had by all.
We also received a kind donation from the Baden-Powell Guild to help us launch Squirrels and buy equipment for activities.
Don’t forget follow us on Facebook and Instagram for weekly updates about what we’re up to in the group, as we continue to provide young people with new and exiting opportunities, and developing key #SkillsForLife

A few pictures from what we got up to on our launch night are below;
- Cox Wood camp – October 2021
At the beginning of October 2021, we held our first weekend camp for over two years! We stayed for two nights at Cox Wood scouts activity centre in Wrexham, hosting a variety of activities such as crate stacking, archery, shooting, den building and much more. It was a great weekend by all accounts and everyone attending thoroughly enjoyed being back outdoors doing what we do best! Some of the best captures are below…
- A return to the outdoors…
On Monday 14th September, after almost 6 months after our last traditional Scout meeting, we were finally able to return to the outdoors with our Cubs and Scouts!
Following social-distancing measures and with limited numbers, we had a great evening. Working off a “back to basics” theme, we tried our hand at some fire-lighting techniques using a flint and steel, tested our knowledge of knots and lashings, and rejoiced in the ability to be able to finally do a spot of campfire cooking on an open lit fire!
We can’t wait to provide more face-to-face activities in the not too distant future!
