A large part of Scouting is about giving our members Skills for Life. Last week the 16th Laurieston Cubs discovered how living with a disability can affect the way they take part in games and activities and the adaptions which can be made.
The Cubs wore eye masks which simulate vision impairment but by using a ball with an internal bell they were able to play several games. They also surveyed the Scout Hall, assessing its suitability for members with disabilities eg access to toilets, door opening widths etc.

The 1st Falkirk Beaver Scout Colony celebrated not one, but three, Chief Scout’s Bronze awards towards the end of last year. This is the highest award a Beaver can earn. It involves a range of team work but also a huge amount of individual work too.
(L to R; Marnie Hughes, Eden Krykant and Cameron Walkinshaw pictured here) have chosen their own badges to work on and driven completion as part of the award. This a fantastic achievement and Leaders Lindsay and Chloe are very proud.

The peace of the Carron Reservoir was shattered recently as the 51st Dennyloanhead Beaver Scouts, accompanied by some brave parents enjoyed a welly-walk to earn their ‘Hike and Explore’ badges and to work off some early Christmas excitement.

The beavers meet at the Archie Russell Community Centre on a Monday evening.

In a packed weekend, they climbed Arthurs Seat on Saturday morning and then all got the public bus into Edinburgh and visited The National Museum Of Scotland and then completed a monopoly challenge game set around Edinburgh city centre before returning to the hall on the bus.
