10th Beavers Navigate For Ice Cream

On Thursday, 10th Beavers went on our navigator walk as part of the navigator badge. The previous week, they learned where to meet on a map of Gourock, the four and eight point compasses and what some of the symbols are on a map.

Each group then used the map to draw out a route that they wanted to go on the following week.

The beavers then voted for the route they wanted to go on and the Battery Park was the winner.  Lead by Alison and the group who planned the route to the Battery Park, everyone put on their walking shoes and navigated to the Bluebird Café for a quick cone then on to the Battery Park.




The Beavers enjoyed playing in the park and some even tried out the outdoor gym. A great night was had by all.

Thanks to the Bluebird Cafe for having us and for the yummy ice cream, as well as the parents and aunties who came on the walk with us. The beavers now look forward to our end of term summer party and BBQ together with the Cubs.







33rd Scout Group Sleeping With The Fishes

 The 33rd Scout Group had a sleep-over at the Sealife Centre at Loch Lomond. They started off with a private tour of the centre. Then they had some supper and a movie in the cinema, complete with popcorn.

After the film, they settled down to sleep in the tunnel, underneath the sharks.

On Sunday some people of the scouts and leaders along with honorary GSL Kenny Wilson attended the retirement service for Mr McIntyre who is retiring from St Ninian’s church.


They passed on our thanks to Mr McIntyre for all his support over the years not just to our group but all the youth groups in the area. Kenny presented Mr McIntyre with a with thanks badge.

On Monday, the scout section spent some time up at the Daff Dam kayaking and canoeing to end the term and by all accounts they had a great time and can’t wait until the next time.






70th AGM, Awards and BBQ Night.

Friday night was a busy last night of the session at the 70th hall. As part of the AGM, parents were given the section reports by the leaders along with a slideshow of the sessions’ activities. There was an appeal for parent helpers and volunteers.





After the AGM there were awards to present. Eight Beavers swam up to Cubs, some were presented with their Bronze Awards – the highest Award for Beavers by Ruth , the others will hopefully finish theirs when Cubs start back after the holidays.

There were two Silver Awards, one was given to a recently invested Scout, and the other to the Scout invested by David that night.

There was also a Gold Award, three Zodiac Bronze Awards and one Leader Choice Award.

The last night of term saw plenty of awards being presented in Quarrier’s Village. Congratulations to Explorers Marc, Ellie, Matthew and Megan for achieving their Chief Scout Platinum Awards. Congratulations also to Scouts Ruari, Joseph, Mark and Isla for achieving their Chief Scout Gold Awards.

Over 120 young people and a huge team of adult leaders and supporters attended and took part in fantastic activities run by a first class team of instructors. A favourite for all was the bushcraft Zone run by the scout team and consisted of fire lighting, cooking and a bush tucker trial.  All of the young people had a marvelous time and slept well on Sunday evening
