Cubs Japan sleepover

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.

Scouts in York Stream Clear Up

scouts5On 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”
