Scouts hold Japanese Evening

Organised by Ollie Smith, an Explorer and member of the Suffolk World Scout Jamboree contingent going to Japan in July 2015, the evening was much enjoyed by Scouts and Leaders.

With dressing up, food, games and a new language, what’s not to like?

Although there were varying comments about the food.

You can see a few more photos in our Gallery.

Orwell District Beavers – Mini Olympics and Sausage Sizzle


Kirton Recreation Ground was invaded by a large number of Beavers from Orwell District on Saturday October 4th, for the District Mini Olympics and Sausage Sizzle.

There were lots of races and, fortunately, they managed to complete most of them before the heavens opened.

Due to the weather the camp fire songs and hot dogs had to be moved into the pavilion which was quite a snug fit but everyone seemed to have enjoyed themselves anyway.

Thorpeness Meare Day 2014

This years Thorpeness Meare Day was held on Saturday 27th September on a beautiful sunny day. Several groups of Scouts and Guides met up to have fun getting wet on, around and in the Meare.

Games were played in the boats, followed by a lunch break, more games and then tug of war across the islands where the losing team ended up in the Meare! But everyone got wet eventually no matter which team they were on!

Before heading for home there was time for a quick dip in the sea to wash off the Meare mud.

Cub Camp at Roselea near Rendlesham September 2014

cub_camp_roselea_sept_20141st Kirton Cubs spent one fun weekend during September camping at Roselea near Rendlesham.

The cubs enjoyed pioneering, cutting and chopping logs for the fire, and then lighting the fire which was great fun and kept everyone warm.

They also prepared some food, cooked it and ate it. We think it was edible!!

There were games to play and, of course, the obligatory camp fire sing song.

And during the weekend the cubs also had a hike in Rendlesham Forest to tire them out.

A great time had by all and a big Thank You goes to all the leaders who took part.

Beach Watch 2014
