Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers from 1st Woosehill Scouts joined together to mark St George’s Day at St Paul’s Church, Wokingham on Sunday 27 April. Flag parties from each section gathered outside the church before marching up the aisle for a service led by Fr Richard Lamey. Having retold the story of St George (who is also the patron saint of the Scout Association) with some willing volunteers from the congregation a representative from each section joined their Leader to retake their Scouting promise. The youngsters then braved the rain to parade their flags back to the Scout Hut in Chestnut Avenue where a well deserved drink and snack awaited them.
Despite a last minute venue change due to flooding, 1st Woosehill held it’s first Gang Show at The Holt School on Saturday 8th February and it was a roaring success. Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Leaders sang and acted to a capacity audience. 1st Woosehill went On a Bear Hunt, met a Gruffalo, danced with elephants and monkeys, visited Narnia, showed that had the X Factor and performed funny sketches and traditional camp songs. £456 was raised from tickets sales, raffle and refreshments. Many thanks to leaders, parents and young people for a fantastic show.
