Beavers and Cubs joined with some Scouts, their Leaders and Helpers to celebrate an early Christmas! The Youngsters went along to Overstone Pack Holiday Centre to prepare the 'Tree' and wait for Santa to make an early visit. He did not disappoint! Apart from a very wet and muddy weekend everyone had a great time with a Christmas-Style Dinner being prepared for over 40 hungry mouths. A video show followed before parents collected very tired Youngsters. Some Scouts camped out as part of their Brass Monkey Pennant Award,braving very poor,wet and stormy weather. Thanks must go to the Leader Team for all their dedication and hard work and to the Scout Active Support Members for providing the traditional fayre.
