The Beavers are now going from strength to strength as the end of the first half term approaches. The numbers are up as are the number of leaders within the section. The children have recently been looking at healthy eating and fitness and making bird feeders.
As always if you know anyone who would like to come along then please pop in and see what we are about.
CUBS & SCOUTS
Over the Summer I had an invite from Fleetwood Library to take part in a new project for the cubs. This project is called Discovery Arts and the children will gain a certificate upon completion. As this is an art focus activity we decided to use photography as the basis to the project. September and October saw us looking at old pictures of Fleetwood before going out and capturing the same buildings. The cubs and Scouts all took to the project like ducks to water and really enjoyed taking their pictures with some amazing shots.
Once this was done, the children have had 2 weeks to gather information and create their own pictures as well as predicting how they think something will look in the future.
The finished work has been created into a display that will be living in the Library. If anyone is passing please feel free to pop upstairs and look at our fantastic display once it has been launched on the 21st October.
The pictures themselves will be donated to the library and will then go on to the Library’s Lantern website.
In the next edition of our newsletter, I will report back with pictures etc on the Launch night where the children will hopefully be getting their Art awards.
These pictures were taken by one of my cubs. We looked at original pictures. Unfortunately I am not allowed to print them in here due to copyright laws but if you have the Internet at home and would like to look at how Fleetwood used to look then you need to go onto the Library website and access Lantern. There are some amazing sites of Fleetwood from years ago.
It is once again that time of year where we have signed up for the Show. This year again promises to be a show-stopping extravaganza. The show will once again be returning back to our roots at the Marine Hall, Fleetwood. Watch this space for details. I would like to organise a church trip to see the show but I will tell you more in January.
