A brilliant team of swimmers today in the Cubs Swimming Gala! Well done to everyone who took part.
The Cubs took part in a Japanese themed Sleepover Last week, to share and join in the Jamboree taking place next summer. Scouts from Maidenhead and Slough came down to support the programme, making Fake sushi, Origami peace cranes, and Fish banners.
Well done to Jake, Barney, Lucas and Caiden for signing off on their Martial Arts badge. It was a great addition before bed to show and tell their Kit and Japanese martial arts interests the rest of the pack.
After little sleep… Saturday morning concluded with a Japanese style tea party, and reflection before more games and home time.
The whole evening was in support of Bagheera who is heading off to the World Scout Jamboree in Japan next summer as a member of the International Service Team.
Our group entered two teams who navigated their own route, and took part in eight different challenges bases along the way all organised and put on by the Scout section.
Cubs and Scouts from 19th Maidenhead Spent the weekend away on a Spy Themed Camp, Recruited into MI19 Cubs and Scouts progressed through a morning of Specialist spy training, in the fields of communication, code breaking, and electric circuits. The Weekend took them through a Who-done-it murder mystery, with real forensic testing, and a mission to catch a double agent.
The story spread across the whole weekend picked up pace as the Campfire was interrupted by an unplanned Code Amber alert, The security breach lead to a surprise wide game to catch a double agent all under the covers of darkness.

On the Morning of 27th April 19th Maidenhead Scouts Joined forces with the Maidenhead Water way project to help in the York stream Clear up, in the early phase of the canal restoration work due to commence this summer.
Teaming up with other organisations and local community groups; the Scouts from 19th Maidenhead Donned their wellies and got stuck in to some seriously mucky litter picking.
Martin Muckle the Scout leader said “The York Steam runs down the back of our Headquarters, it was great to feel a part of a big project on our door step and there was such community spirit”
The Maidenhead advertiser reported that more that 70 bags of litter, five shopping trolleys, a chair, a typewriter, a radio and other foreign objects were all retrieved from York Stream as part of the clear up operation.
Martin added “The Scouts should be really proud of their effort, you can really see the difference”
