Since last AGM we have had two new members, which is promising! And kept all our original members; some are currently having breaks but are all still firmly members!
We have moved our meeting date to a Wednesday which helps everyone, and are continuing to meet every Wednesday, whilst trying to build up an agreement with the help of Cole to help the transition between explorers and network and helping explorers post 18.
We have been two festival camp at Rough close in July with big numbers of succession, and Gilwell Reunion in September. We have had our weekly meetings such as going archery, fires, bowling, pub quizzes and also helped with district at swimming gala and night hike, with most of us being leaders elsewhere so partaking in DLM, St. George’s and remembrance day parade.
We also completed, for the first time ever(!!) our gold duke of Edinburgh practice as a group, which was strenuous but goes to show it’s doable in network! Two of us have completed our gold dofe since, and two more yet to complete. This meant we have had a lot of practice walks in the mean time and planning evenings which led to a success.
We have also been still trying to maintain the hut, which is at a maintenance level, which is undergoing plans with district as to where we go next, which is working well!
