Radio Club visits 47th



The District Amateur Radio Club visited the 47th G & D Cubs recently to work through their communicator badge.

The Cubs used amateur radio to send a greetings message to another radio operator, learned the phonetic alphabet, worked with codes and were introduced to Morse Code which the cubs all loved.

Well done to all the Cubs for all their hard work.







32nd Troop visit Marine Biology station Millport

 24 Scouts and Cubs for the 32nd Group spent last weekend on the Isle of Cumbrae, working with staff at the Marine Biology station, making a study of marine life, pollution and costal erosion.




The young people all gained The Environmental Conservation and Naturalist activity badges.

During the weekend the group were lucky to obtain tickets to a lecture by world famous mountaineer Simon Yates, who inspired the film Touching the Void.

Simon spoke with the Scouts and posed for photographs and answered questions on his extraordinary life climbing the highest and most dangerous mountains in the world.

The Scouts also attended the local parade, carrying group colours and service of remembrance in Millport. What an adventurous weekend for all involved.

32nd Beaver Scout go Badgetastic!

20 Beaver Scouts from the 32nd Colony had terrific fun and worked hard last weekend at Auchengillan Scout Camp, Glasgow at the annual Badgetastic event, gaining several activity badges and also the ‘my adventure challenge’ award.

They even spent time on water on a canoe. The Beavers joined hundreds of other Beaver scouts from all over the country for this popular event and as usual would like to thank their leaders, minibus drivers and Auchengillan staff.


Science fun for 59th Cubs

The 59th Cubs enjoyed their science night learning loads of fun experiments and working on their scientist badge. The highlight of the night was learning to make slime from scratch.
