At the weekend 5 of our leadership team Mark, Bruce, Stuart, Alex and Mark II joined the Clyde hills team on an adventure to Binnein an Fhidhleir in the Arrochar Alps.
It was a snowy day with so harsh winds but a great day was had by all with plenty of new skills learned by all.
Are you up for the adventure? Being a member of the Scout movement gives you a wealth of opportunities. If you’d like to volunteer you can send us a message here http://www.2cb.org.uk/contact-us/volunteer/ We’d love hear from you.
26 Scouts, 6 Explorers and 4 Leaders had a great week at Auchengillian. There was a huge variety of activities for our young people to take part in from zorbing to hill walking there was something for everyone.
The rain over the week did not stop us having a great time!
Six of our fantastic Scouts took part in the Calder District Camping Competition at Barrword this weekend. They were tested on various skills from map reading to cooking. We are very please to announce they came in first place! A huge well done Scouts, great achievement.
Well done to all the patrols who took part in the event and thanks to all the leaders who made the event possible!

Donna McGhee will be undertaking the 23 mile Kiltwalk from Glasgow to Balloch on the 30th April.
Donna is raising money in aid of your Scout Group, have a click on her page and give a donation to help support the group and show Donna some support in undertaking the 23 mile walk!
Every penny donated is given straight to the group with no additional charges.
More good news for the group! We have been successful in our application for funding from “Over to You” North Lanarkshire and have received £1000.
This would not have been possible without your dedicated fundraising team, thank you! Nor would it have happened without all votes which were cast for us, thanks to all those who turned up and voted for us!
A great night was had by all at our annual race night. Although attendance was very low in comparison to previous years the night was fantastic fun especially with the new addition of a DJ.
The night managed to raise £1500 which will be used to fund hall upkeep and events for members of the group. A huge thanks to our sponsors. And an even bigger thanks to all who attended on the night!
