This week we were very lucky to be joined by PC Gail Clarance and PCSO Kate. We had a fun evening discovering about how the police protect our local community and how we can assist in keeping our neighbourhood safer. Everybody took part in a crime scene role-play to see how the police rely on many different people and technologies to find thieves. We are looking forward to helping PC Clarance and her team with some exciting projects in the near future.
If that wasn’t enough, Hannah made a delicious assortment of yummy cakes for all to enjoy. What more could we want?
First, Ollie and I went behind the scenes and one of the police women came to speak to us and said ” put these clothes on and take this hammer, and when I say GO, do the acting I told you about”. What Ollie and I did was to smash fake glass and steal fake jewels and run off then we ran to the car. After that we watched a few CD’s of robbers running from policemen and they were being watched by a helicopters camera. Then we had some drinks at the end of the evening.We all enjoyed the evening and want to do it again!!!
After winning the district competition earlier in the year. Four of our scouts represented Southampton City for the country-wide event. Although we didn’t win, our scouts were commended on doing well considering their young age and small group size.
Congratulations to us! We won the District Emlyn competition 2011. Our scouts planned every aspect of their camp from cooking to equipment with little adult help. The boys worked really hard to show themselves as independent young people. Not only did they win the competition, but also the trophy for best cooking skills.
As part of the ‘Creative Challenge’ badge, the scouts recorded some of their May camp adventure with a camcorder. The aim was to put together a video of what it’s like to be a scout in 2011. The video will showcase their skills on and off camera and will be enjoyed by them, parents and friends.
We planed a field-trip to Apple in WestQuay and used their fancy editing software to edit and polish our movie and burn it to DVD.
