But we did it and the weather was (mostly) kind. Despite being prepared for near zero temperatures, extra blankets were left furled in packs, Arctic-ready sleeping bags were unzipped and no-one needed microwaved in the mornings to de-frost.
Great effort from all the cubs, Leaders and supporting adults.
Hi all – this Saturday 9th June it’s World Environment Day. As flagged in our Activity plans we’re going to help the Owhiro Stream Conservation Group remove rubbish and – maybe – help them plant some of the thousands of new plants for the stream banks.
It’s a Group activity, so all keas, cubs, scouts, venturers and their families are welcome. And it’s bound to earn youth some credit towards their awards or a personal challenge badge!
When: 1pm – 3pm
Where: meet at the Scout Hall by 12:55pm, afternoon tea at the Hall at 3pm
Kit: Bring gardening gloves, rubbish sacks, gumboots or sturdy boots, and your own drink bottle. We will travel by car to our assigned section of the Owhiro Stream. Maybe a little bit of cake or some fruit to share for afternoon tea, too!
