The Commonwealth Baton in Kennet

On 25 June, day 12 of the Queen’s Baton Relay, the baton arrived in Clackmannanshire. The first baton bearer of the day was Sandy Jack from Kennet. Sandy has been part of Scouting for 60 years and was last year awarded a British Empire Medal for his services. Some of the Clackmannan Scouts were in Kennet to cheer Sandy on his way and got an opportunity to hold the baton.The baton in Kennet

Giant neckie spotted in Clackmannan!

Large neckie

This is the giant neckie made up from 25 smaller ones designed by the Beavers and Cubs. The plan was that it would be joined together with neckies from other groups in an attempt to break the current world record for the biggest neckie.

Unfortunately when we took it to SHQ at Fordell Firs, we discovered that part of the Commonwealth Challenge had been cancelled. But the good news is that we will now be able to display it in our hall!  Hope you like it.

May Update

Hi all, hope you and your family have recovered from the camp. Any lost property that was found on our site is back at our hall, if things drifted further away they could be at the District office – please let us know if you are missing anything. Thanks to the parents who attended and helped.

gartmorn damBeavers and Cubs will be having a guided nature walk at Gartmorn Dam next Wednesday 28 May instead of the usual sessions. They should meet (in uniform) at the Visitor Centre at 6.30pm and we will finish at 8pm. Children should be collected from the Visitor Centre. We will need some adult support for this – please call/text Lorna if you can help us on 07917411421. 

Scout Community Week is from 2 – 8 June. We are taking part in this by doing a litter pick on Wednesday 4 June from 6.30pm – 8pm. Beavers, Cubs and Scouts are asked to meet at the yellow gates to the cycle path, near to Devon Way, Clackmannan at 6.30pm. They should be in uniform and you may wish to give them gloves to wear. Litter pickers and bags will be supplied. Again we are asking for some adults to help us with this, please let Lorna know on the number above. We will finish the litter pick around 8pm, and children can either be collected at the drop off point or walk up to the hall for a roll and sausage.
We are hoping that the Cubs will be able to attend a Commonwealth Games event on Saturday 14 June, more details will follow when we have them, but it is likely to take place in Kincardine. Keep this date free if you can!
