THE 1st Lyme Valley Scout Group celebrated St George’s Day with a difference this year.
Instead of the usual parade and church service the 34 Cubs and Scouts chose to spend the weekend at a camp, playing games, singing campfire songs and celebrating.
On Sunday, the Beavers joined the group, bringing the total number to 52, and they then played ‘Uplyme Monopoly’ – a challenge which involved running around the village taking selfies at various landmarks and answering questions about the local area.
The day was rounded off with a few games and, as has always happens on St George’s weekend, each Beaver, Cub, Scout and leader renewed their promises.
Scout leader Karen Yelland said: “It’s been a brilliant weekend. It’s been a pleasure to get so many of the group come and experience a camp like this. It’s all about giving them new experiences”
Fellow leader Paul Weldin added: “The weather was a bit bumpy, but it all came good in the end and eventually the sun came through the mist. The Cubs has a fun time at the hut, and it was great to be with the rest of the group.”
