For the first time, 5th Tyldesley will be taking part in Scout Community Week from 2nd-8th June.

 

We have built links with the new school next door and will be joining forces with them to improve their grounds.

 

All children and leaders who attend the sessions during Scout Community Week and take an active part in our various tasks will earn a special Community Week badge.

Community Week is well underway at 5thTyldesley!

 

The more eagle-eyed of you who have passed the hut recently will have noticed the front flowerbed at the school next door looking far tidied (emptier) after our hardwork this week.  Keep your eyes peeled for when we start planting over the next couple of weeks.

The Beavers have been busy this week planting seeds, bulbs and beeding plants in the school garden.  We will be continuing to work hard with the garden over the coming weeks and months. 

 

Keep an eye on the garden to see the changes we make.

30 of our Beavers and their leaders joined forces with 4 other Colonies from Lilford District on Saturday 5th July to visit RAF Cosford as part of their Air Activities badge.

Leaders visit Gilwell

The first weekend in September is well-known in the Scouting community as the Gilwell Reunion - a chance for all warranted Leaders to visit Scout HQ in in Essex.  This year  5th Tyldesley was represented for the first time by seven of our Leaders. 

 

We stood out from the crowd in our 'subtle' orange hoodies (check out the new design when you next see us), so much so that the UK Chief Commissioner sought us out to say hello.

 

We all had a fabulous weekend meeting new Scouting friends and trying our hands at various new skills and crafts which we will be putting into practice with the children over the coming months.

With the UK Chief Commissioner,
