We now have three young ladies helping in the company as part of their Bronze DofE programme. Libby Bentley and Josephine Adeyemi are established company members who are now running the games sessions and Katie Jeffrey is helping with the Explorers, particularly when assistance is needed with craft activities.
We had an evening devoted to Easter thoughts and activities, including a whole company Easter Egg Hunt round the church. So if you've stumbled across a foil-wrapped mini egg in a strange place you now know why!
The Explorers had an evening of birds — recognition, different nest styles, making an apple/sunflower seed bird-feeder and finishing with a flock of starling finger-puppets.
The Juniors and Seniors have started to look at 'Entertaining'.
At the latest District staff meeting our own Kym Burgess was presented with an award for 30 years as a commissioned officer. We were also delighted to hear that GBCO has confirmed the appointment of Sherilyn Powell (from New Haw Company) as Deputy District Team Leader.
We're all looking forward to our annual camp at the beginning of June. This year we will be at Littlehampton, enjoying the seaside.
