10th learn how to save a life

 All Beaver, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers & Leaders from the 10th had a visit from Anna & Sean of St Andrews First Aid.

 All sections learned about saving life’s; what to do if someone is unconscious but breathing with the recovery position and if someone is unconscious and not breathing with CPR.

 

 

 

 

Beavers had a look inside the ambulance and found out about the types of events St Andrew’s  first aid help out at. Whilst the cubs, scouts & explorers learned all about how to use and find a defibrillator.

 Thanks to Anna & Sean for taking their time out to teach the whole group how to save lives. #skillsforlife

 

 

 

 

Explorers’ training weekend

Explorers from Greenock and District attended West Region Blair Atholl Training at Lapwing Lodge at the weekend. They survived awful rain and wind to sleep in Patrol Tents and build dining shelters where they cooked all their meals over open fire. They had plenty of time to meet the other participants from all the districts in West Region. This is all in preparation for a two-week camp at Blair Atholl castle in July 2020. Thank you to Blair, Kieran and Robbie for running this weekend and organising all the training for the Region for this.

  

 

Burns Night at Quarriers

Last week saw a lively Burn’s Supper for the whole group with Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and James Arthur ESU enjoying some Scottish Fayre courtesy of Three Sisters Bake.

 

 

 

There was Burns’ poetry with a twist, Flower o’ Scotland sung by the Cubs, In Ma Wee Rid Motor performed by the Beavers and some amazingly talented musicians on piano, violin and bagpipes. An impromptu Gay Gordons finished off the night. Well done all.
