We presented the Raven of the Year award for the 2016/17 Scouting year to Heather. Very well deserved, as she joins a long line of super scouts! She racked up points by consistently wearing perfect uniform, earning badges and showing up to every event and activity throughout the year. Well done Heather!
Who will take over this year???? there’s a good few scouts in the running….keep up the great work!
We held the parachute section of the “Raven Troop Airshow 2018”. This was part of our Air Activities badge. There were a wide variety of designs and ideas……with varying levels of success! Some of the jumpers (eggs) didn’t make it….
A reminder we’ll be rounding off the 2017 scouting year with a pizza party later.
We’ll be finishing the meeting at 8.30pm.
Uniform not needed, just neckerchiefs.
See you all later!
Practicing our pioneering skills. Lashing poles together to make tripods.

Thanks to everyone who has returned the 12 Days of Christmas tickets and money.
Can we please get the remainder of tickets (sold and unsold) tonight/next week at the very latest. We’ve to send all tickets back to Head Office in time for the draw!
Patrols were challenged to burn through a piece of wool which was 6 feet away. Armed with 20 bamboo sticks, a tea light and elastic bands the patrols designed and built a structure to support their team light. Well done to each patrol for successfully completing the challenge.
Team work makes the dream work!
We were missing one of our leaders, Shay, who is currently on the other side of the world, living it up!
So we sent him a message, Raven Troop style!
