This evening our Cub Scouts had a great time having been give exclusive access to Chorley Library to work towards their Book Reader Activity Badge! A huge thank-you to Samantha Ratcliffe for preparing a fun-filled evening of games, songs and activities to really bring the library to life!
Happily this year's St George's Parade was a dry one compared to previous years and once again ASJ's Beavers, Cubs and Scouts did a fantastic job providing this year's District Colour Party. The Chorley District flags were presented to the Rt. Honorable Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP, who is Chorley's Member of Parliament, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons and the President of Chorley District Scouts and Cath Lee, Chorley Scouts' District Commissioner.
Parade completed, the Scout Groups were dismissed to have fun on the bouncy castles and play with their friends on the park.
A big thank you to all of the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts who made it to today's parade and to those of you who have taken part in events over the last year as the District's Colour Party Scout Group.
Well done to our Young Leader Ben and the Beavers for their significant contribution to Chorley's Food Bank!
Ben has been an ASJ Beaver, Cub and Scout and is now doing a superb job as a Young Leader in our Beaver Section. Last week he planned the Thursday night's session, as part of a wider Community Impact theme, with the Beavers making and decorating their own money boxes. These money boxes were then used to raise funds for Chorley's Food Bank, which Ben purchased and dropped off personally. The Foodbank volunteers were very impressed their generous contribution!
This project will also help the Beavers to achieve their Community Impact Badge and Ben who is working towards his Chief Scout's Platinum Badge.
Keep up the good work!
The Chorley LIFE Centre has been open for a year, yet ASJ Cubs were privileged to be the first Scout Group in Lancashire to visit this amazing facility!
LIFE has been purpose built to inspire NHS careers and support health and well-being in people aged five years and upwards. The facility has been designed to include practical based teaching and also includes VR and AV technology. The trip included role plays for the Cubs on a Virtual Ward, working in a simulated Emergency Department and watching fascinating 3D movies in the cinema auditorium!
We entered with Cubs who knew nothing about how the NHS works and we left with many aspiring doctors, nurses, pharmacists, radiographers and NHS support staff!
A big thank you to Sarah (an Advanced Nurse Practitioner from Chorley ED) and Brittany one of the Centre's Tutors for running the sessions.
