OPEN DAY A HUGE SUCCESS!


There was a steady flow of people throughout the day as our MC for the day, Mike Rose-Troup introduced our celebrity


Broadcaster Belinda


Artingstoll who opened our showcase of events.


The activity groups of Dancing, Drama, Singing, Ukulele and Alte Musik were truly spectacular, with everyone pitching in with the singing and tapping their feet to the dancing. The Circle Dancing group invited everyone up on the floor to join in the dancing. It was a delight to see so many people with smiles on their faces and trying to master the steps.


Our membership Secretary, Paul Tharagonnet had a busy day signing people up for renewals and new memberships, with twenty new members registered on the day.

Cockermouth Scouts have two thriving Cub packs, who meet on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.


Our Tuesday Cubs recently had a weekend away at Felldyke Bunkhouse near Lamplugh. They went walking, did some open fire cooking, built shelters and had a go at some first aid challenges with the support of members of Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team. The Cubs in the photograph are getting to grips with the challenges of being a stretcher bearer! Add in plenty of games and you have the recipe for happy, tired Cubs, who came home with an amazing amount of mud attached. Huge thanks go to Phil and Rachel Gerrard for kindly allowing the Pack to use their bunkhouse, plus of course the Cub leaders.


Not to be outdone, the Scout Troop recently took part in a night hike from Loweswater back to town, before an overnight stay in the Scout Centre and a bacon butty breakfast. Despite the sodden ground and persistent rain, the group completed the walk in good spirits and had enough energy to keep awake until 2.30am. As with many of our activities, we are very grateful to the parents who braved the rain to help support the Scouts.


More details of our Scout Group can be found on Facebook by searching Cockermouth Scout Group. You can also send us a message through the page. Alternatively, you can contact us through the Cumbria Scouts website.
