Cubs at the Perth & Kinross Badge Day 2011.
Happy New Year to you all
New year, new start for us all. Resolutions are hard to keep but why don’t we all make a promise to
- Try a new activity or badge this year
- Visit somewhere in a different District
- contact firstname.lastname@example.org with some news from your Pack?
Celebrate The Queen's Jubilee
Ideas for celebrating HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee can be found at www.scouts.org.uk/jubilee - please send us photos of how you celebrate.
Catch Olympic Fever!
All leaders should have a copy of the Olympic Games ideas called Our Sporting Adventure, and hopefully you have registered to be on the medals table.
This is an ideal opportunity to do the Athletics Activity Badge (new requirements) and Fitness Challenge Badge.
Other New Resources
There are new resources, Scouting speaks to all, about speech and language difficulties on the Scout Uk website. Well worth a read with the Leader's Guide.
Creative Scotland have a calendar of events for 2012 – an ideal chance to revisit Scottish Challenge Badge requirements on the website and badges available from SHQ.
