Cubs 100 and Beavers 30th Water Fun Weekend 2016

On the weekend of 9th / 10th July, Southport District Scouts held a special two day event at their District Headquarters, Waterside Lodge, to celebrate the special anniversaries that are happening in the Scouting World this year. On the Saturday, 80 Beaver Scouts attended their 30th Anniversary celebration and on the Sunday, 170 Cub Scouts attended their 100th Anniversary Celebration.
Both days were enhanced versions of their annual Water Fun days where land based activities were added for everyone to enjoy. The Beavers & Cubs enjoyed power boat rides, sailing, Bell-boating, canoeing, zorbing, various large bouncy castles, a rodeo bull, rope bridge, catapults, archery,pugil sticks, face painting and badge making.
Each lunchtime everyone gathered together to sing ‘Happy Birthday’, blow out their own Birthday Cake, and form up to make the pictures you can see with this report. More photos can be viewed on our District Facebook Page.
