Day 2 of Delft camp coming to an end. Sun was out all day with a keen wind. The first challenge was for the patrols to come up with a Dutch-themed menu for breakfast and dinner and then it was off to the Jumbo supermarket to purchase the ingredients. Now waiting for the first offering. After the supermarket, it was off on the tram to the coast. Various length of bike rides (including tandem) in the sand dune nature area walks along the beach, with everyone changing around and having a go.

St Georges Day Parade

 

Sunday, May 5th Meet at the north end of Sheep St (Methodist Chapel end) at 1:50 pm. The parade will move off at 2:00 pm to march to St Edburgs Church for a service at 2:30 pm. 3:30 pm we leave St Edburgs to parade back to Sheep Street via Market Square where a salute will take place. Finish in back in Sheep Street at 4:00 pm. Please note return times are approximate. The Group only parades twice a year so we expect all our members to attend in smart uniform with school trousers. St George is the Patron Saint of Scouting as well of England.

Bicester Scouts Field of Remembrance.

Scouts & Scouts+

In order to mark the centenary of the end of WW1 the Scouts of Bicester Town are making Remembrance Crosses. They will be displayed behind St Edburg’s Church for the duration of the Remembrance weekend.
There are 103 names on the Bicester WW1 Memorial Stone and we plan for the Scouts to make the crosses themselves – there will be one for each serviceman that died.
We are inviting Scouts who would like to be involved in the project to attend a drop in workshop where they can make a cross and choose the name of the Serviceman they would like to honour. We are asking for a small contribution of £1 towards the cost of the materials. The Scouts will be able to keep their cross which measure 80cm x 40cm the same dimensions as a Commonwealth headstone.
Friday 26th October
Anytime between 2.00pm & 4.00pm
Saturday 27th October
Anytime between 9.00am & 12.00pm
1st Bicester have kindly offered for us to use their Scout HQ – Ashdene Road,
Bicester OX26 2JU. The crosses will take approximately ½ an hour to make and parents are welcome to stay and wait if they wish.
