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.

93rd Cubs - Foraging masterclass
15/06/2023 By Ann Gilchrist

The 93rd Braes Cubs recently held a picnic with a difference at Muiravonside Country Park.  They tasted tea made from sticky willows, pastries made with wild garlic, cake made from ground seeds and sweet syrup made from beech tree sap.  It was amazing how many edible plants they found within a couple of yards of the car park, from Garlic Mustard, Ground Elder to Rosebay Willow Herb, all with the help of local foraging expert, Graham Whitehouse but always with the warning if you are not sure then don't eat it.  Thank you to the park ranger for organising late access to the park.

16th Laurieston cubs
23/05/2023 By Ann Gilchrist

Scouting is well known to offer outdoor activities, but we also help our members develop a range of problem solving and teamwork skills, learning about the benefits of working as a team and helping each other to solve problems.

Recently the Laurieston Cubs were challenged to demonstrate this as part of an evening ‘Escape Room’ activity. The Cubs had to complete problems set in a number of different zones in the Scout Hall. Throughout the evening they had to solve puzzles, decode messages, and use their observation skills to obtain secret information. They also had to work as a team, to recover items from a well-protected ‘laser’ guarded corridor.
