Venturer cooking night!

O Thursday night, the Venturers had a cooking challenge night! We were split into two groups and one group had to make anzac biscuits, the other stuffed peppers. The most efficient team won! A fun time was had by all, and the food turned out deliciously!

Scouts Visit Johnsonville Police Station

The Scouts had a great time finding out information on NZ Police from Constable Hamish Knight of Johnsonville Police station.  They were shown what tools Hamish has available to him, which started with how to control people by using certain arm locks, with a couple of lively scouts happily volunteering to be pinned and handcuffed!!

The scouts had a great time having all their questions answered.  Afterwards the scouts got the opportunity to be fingerprinted, view the police cells and see some of the guns used by NZ Police and try on some of the gear.

Thanks Hamish, the scouts had a great time.
