There was more exercise for all sections last Sunday lunchtime, when 22 of our young people, joined others from across the Oldham Borough District at Royton Baths for the H2O fun, which included games, races and just general splashing about!
We are beginning to think about camps, and other “Scouty” activities, with 11 of our Scouts signed up for Freezer Camp next month, and a lot of our Beavers hoping to join the District Sleepover in May. This week we will also be asking the young people and their families about the water activities they want to take part in over at Green Withens - a great resource, almost on our doorstep.
Closer to home, the Scouts will once again be hosting the Uppermill Fairtrade Bake Off at Uppermill Methodist Church on March 10th. All bakers are invited to take part - all you have to do to enter is to pick up an entry form from UMC or download one from the website and return it to Erica, then bake something that includes at least one Fairtrade ingredient (clue’s in the name!) and bring it along before 9.30 on the day.
Judging will be done by all those who attend the coffee morning on the day, and there will be prizes for the winners of all 3 categories - Open, Under 16 and highest proportion of Fairtrade ingredients. If you’re not a baker (or even if you are) then you can still participate by coming along on the day to taste and award your points.
