Fire Station Trip - 1st Falkirk Beavers
19/10/2023 By Ann Gilchrist
1st Falkirk Beaver Scouts have been out and about in the local community as part of their activity programme. This time they visited the Falkirk Fire Station where the firefighters gave them a tour of the station and they even got to see two different Fire Engine Appliances.
They all had a great time and the highlights included getting to try out the uniform, using the hose and getting to see where the fire fighters sleep when not on a call. They learned all about fire safety which is even more important with bonfire and fireworks season approaching.

62nd Family Fun day
04/08/2023 By Ann Gilchrist

The 62nd Larbert Scout Group chose a lovely warm day earlier in the year for their Family Funday at Barrwood. Much planning and teamwork had been required, but that ensured 140 members and families had a day to remember. Members, as young as 6, had a go on paddleboards and kayaks (under very close supervision), with their amazed families watching on. Some of the youngsters were afraid of the dark, or so they thought, until they started crawling around in a cave network, what fun. Then the sports events and BBQ was welcomed by everyone. It was a great adventure for the young people.

51st Dennyloanhead - Bronze Awards
15/04/2023 By Ann Gilchrist

It has been a busy time for the younger members of the 51st Dennyloanhead Scouts Group. During our last week we were so proud to present the Chief Scout’s Bronze Award to 3 of our Beavers who have worked extremely hard to achieve this. This is the highest award a Beaver Scout can earn.

At the beginning of March, the group was excited to open our newest Section, The Squirrels! The Squirrels have had a brilliant start and worked hard to earn their first activity badge. We were pleased to invest them into the group this week when they hopped over the stepping stones to join our drey on Squirrel Island. Many more adventures to come for us!

Following an enforced break due to the COVID pandemic Grangemouth Scouting was relaunched this month. During the Autumn a group of adult volunteers worked together to plan the relaunch of the 15th Grangemouth Scout Group. Three, “come and try it” events were organised for January. The first two weeks each had nine bases for the young people to sample. On the third week they celebrated the Chinese New Year. The sections started regular meetings at the beginning of this month. Finally, last Wednesday, 13 Beavers, 12 Cubs, 7 Scouts, 1 young Leader and 5 new adult volunteers formally joined the Scouts on the anniversary of the birth of the Movements founder, Robert Baden-Powell.
