Water fight night! FUN FUN FUN!!!!

16 July 2015

Tonight was the last night of the year for us at Carlton Scout Group and we went out in style!

A water fight was arranged and took place on Millenium Green. We had an amazing turn out of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and plenty of the adult helpers, Leaders and parents all took part.
A tuck shop was also running during the evening (raising money for the group) and the chocolate seemed especially popular with everyone. Thanks to Claire Scaife and family for running the tuck shop at all our events over the last year.
After a thorough soaking, approx 2000 litres were used! there was time to dry off and change into dry clothing before White Beaver arrived on site with boxes of hot fresh Pizza to share round.
These proved to be very popular indeed, judging by the rapidly growing stack of empty boxes, and everyone seemed quite happy when a huge box of cakes appeared to round off the evening.
A speech was given by our esteemed Group Scout Leader, Chil, and he announced that due to the amazing fund raising efforts over the last 12 months, Carlton Scout Group would be fully funding the costs for all those attending (who applied to the exec committee for financial support) the World jamborette and jamboree this year. A remarkable achievement indeed!
Sadly this was our last evening with Ziggy and his family, they are moving to pastures new over the summer and I can honestly say it has been a pleasure to know them, we will all miss them but wish them every success in the future with their new life in California, USA.
Ziggy has been, undoubtedly, ‘a character’ with his endless enthusiasm, unbelievable levels of energy and his thirst for adventure is unrivalled but we have learnt well from him, shared so many good times and we have grown as a group thanks to all his hard work and dedication.
We shall forever remember the quote “What can possibly go wrong???”
