PGL (Parents get lost……..Only joking!!!) Camp 2012

What a fantastic weekend of non stop fun!!!

Got off to a great start on friday with the sun shining and it just got better and better as the weekend progressed.

We hardly had a moment to catch our breath as every minute was filled with something brilliant to do. 

Scariest thing, possibly the High Ropes.  Most fun thing, possibly the Giant Swing.  Wettest thing, the Canoeing!!!

Can’t wait to do it all again!


Tablers athletics camp 2012

The summer rain may have got us off to a damp start, but it takes more than a bit of rain and mud to dampen the spirits of Gilberdyke Cubs and Scouts!

A fantastic weekend was enjoyed by all, especially when the sun came out.  A full range of activities kept everyone happy and the Cubs and Scouts merged into one group, cooperating with each other to make it a weekend of fun and adventure for all.

For some Cubs it was their first taste of camping, whilst most of the Scouts are old hands at it by now.

We were joined by some of our ex Scouts who are now Explorers/Young Leaders at Howden Explorers, who helped to keep the fun coming thick and fast and were absolutely fantastic at Camp Fire.  A big thank you to them for their support and also to the adult helpers who gave up their weekend off to be with us.  John, Cub Leader.

That rings a bell!

That rings a bell.
The Cubs had a great night last thursday, 21 June, as they paid a visit to Newport Church. The weather was kind to us and calmed down enough to allow us to climb to the top of the Bell tower and climb out onto the roof, escorted by Mr.Brown, who also told us all about the bells themselves and how they were rung.
What a fantastic view we had up there!
Reverend Thornalley was on hand to give us an insight into the work of the vicar, plus information about the various parts of the church and its functions. This visit was intended to give the Cubs a better understanding of the work of local community figures and also the part played by institutions such as the Church and is a part of the Community Challenge badge.
We will be having further contact with other figures in the local community in a few weeks time.
Thanks go to Rev. Thornalley and Mr.Frank Brown for an enjoyable and informative evening.
John, Cub Leader.
