I have put below the outline programme for the Scout Expedition to Switzerland this summer, for your delight and anticipation. Please note that this programme will change again, as we cannot do all the activities in the order that we wanted at the moment. It will be updated again when we can confirm the dates for all the activities.
In common with many others around the country, we’ve been cooking pancakes at our various meetings this Shrove Tuesday week. Clicking on the pictures below will show you more pictures of this week’s efforts.
The offer that we have, as a fundraiser, provides tickets for the
