St Andrew’s Celebrations for 59th Beavers Cubs and Scouts
The Cubs had a fling making flags from paper and cotton wool. The Scouts made salt dough, and then painted their contributions in Scottish blue and white.
Inverkip and Wemyss Bay Christmas Post
The 85th Scouts are running their Christmas post again this year for deliveries to Inverkip and Wemyss Bay. It’s free and simple to use. Cards can be posted in the special post boxes in Spar in Wemyss Bay and Sainsburys in Inverkip. No stamps needed. Donations can be accepted in envelopes addressed to the Scouts.
Scouts from the 73rd and 85th worked towards their Community Challenge badges last weekend by helping collect food for Inverclyde Foodbank at the Tesco stores in Greenock and Port Glasgow. Close to three tonnes of food was collected on the day, to be distributed locally in Inverclyde. The troops would like to thank to all shoppers who contributed so generously.
The 5th.Scout group are holding a coffee morning on Saturday, 14. December in Westburn Church Hall, Greenock from 10am til noon. Tickets £2 in aid of group funds.
1st Gourock started their Christmas celebrations this week with their traditional Pensioner’s Christmas Dinner. The dinner, which has now been running for more than 30 years, saw 26 guests attend the Gourock YAC clubhouse for their turkey dinner with all the trimmings – expertly served by the Scouts and Darroch Explorers.
Afterwards they were treated to entertainment from Kenny Wilson, who was aided by his Scout backing singers, and then there wasa visit from a very youthful looking Santa and his big elves. A huge thank you to Robert Love, Kenny Wilson and all the Group Exec, who provided and prepared the meal.
