    World Jamboree Jamboree 2019 Participants

    On the 24th September we had the World Jamboree participant selection, over at the Heath in Runcorn.

    The Jamboree will take place on 22nd July – 2nd August 2019 at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, USA, with the lucky participants taking place in Home Hospitality in America or Canada before the event. Before all that happens though there is the small matter of fundraising for the fee to go along to the event. In the region of £3800 each needs to be raised, which means there is plenty of work to be done. The team are just getting underway to start putting together plans for raising the money, this will of course involve many fundraising events. Hopefully as many of you as possible will support the team as they go to help these young people get to the trip of a lifetime.

    As well as the great news of the 9 youth members going from our District, we also have James Taylor, GSL at the 22nd who will be going to the event as a Cheshire Unit leader, Amelia Riley, Explorer Leader at Antarctic ESU going as part of the Cheshire Unit Leadership team and Emily Lowndes from the 22nd who is going as part of the IST for the event on the Unit support team. We are sure it will be an amazing experience for all involved.

    District Cubs Survival Competition
     On the 30th September ,Teams from Cub Packs all over the District descended on Dunham Massey Scout Camp for the Cubs Survival competition. After all of the fun of fire lighting and bivvy den building the eventual competition was won by 26th Warrington East (Padgate) Cub Pack. Well done to them and hopefully they will be back to defend their title at next years event. Watch out for details when they are finalised. 
     
    District Bronze and Silver Awards
    On Sunday 15th October, the District held its annual Bronze and Silver Chief Scout Award Presentation. All in all there were 73 Chief Scout Bronze Award recipients and 46 Chief Scout Silver Awards invited to the presentation. Following giving out of the certificates the recipients were treated to activities like Archery, Campfire Donuts, a Rope Bridge, Slack Lining and much more. We were joined by the ACC Beaver Scouts Laura Dyer and ACC Cub Scouts Pam Owen who helped present Certificates.
