Go Vauxhall are sponsoring the Beckenham Fireworks 2017

We are delighted to be partnered with Go Vauxhall to deliver the Beckenham Fireworks in the Park 2017

 

Merry Christmas 2016

We are grateful to all our leaders, helpers, parents and everybody who helps our young people have such an amazing time with us.

This year we are especially grateful to all our volunteer marshals  (well over 100 of you) who helped us deliver one of the biggest and best fireworks displays that Beckenham has seen.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

In case you missed it, here was the story of our MC’s day hosting the Beckenham Fireworks:

Moshi Monsters: Moshi Movies

With Christmas coming, we should mention this now. We received Moshi Monsters: Moshi Movies animation kit and we’ll break it out soon to give it a play but we already love the Hue webcam so this looks promising.

Screen Shot 2013-12-12 at 09.58.34This isn’t a review, obviously, but it gets brilliant reviews elsewhere and 5 stars on amazon. As they gave one to the group for free, I think it’s only fair to give them a bit of publicity:

Use this complete kit to create your own stop motion animated Moshi Monsters movies; great fun for all! Suitable for all ages from 5 and up.
Approved for Windows and Mac OS X. The kit contains software, a HUE camera, backdrops, cut-out features and a step-by-step animation guide.
Upload your movies to YouTube, email them to your family and friends or save them to your computer.
The animation package is recommended by teachers for use in schools throughout the UK.
HUE was the camera of choice for the Tate Movie Road Show. HUE Animation (“It’s genius…” The Sun) was a 2013 Dad’s Choice Awards winner.

You can make Moshi Movies like this pretty much instantly:

 

And no, of course you are not restricted to just Moshi Monsters, the kit will animate anything your imagination can create.

You can buy the Moshi Monsters:Moshi Movie kite from amazon

It’s Casino Night for the explorers. Hopefully they’ll learn that gambling is daft and the house always wins.

Scouts and Patriotism

BoyScuts1908-1

We should take care, in inculcating patriotism into our boys and girls, that is a patriotism above the narrow sentiment which usually stops at one’s country, and thus inspires jealousy and enmity in dealing with others…  Our patriotism should be of the wider, nobler kind which recognises justice and reasonableness in the claims of others and which lead our country into comradeship with… the other nations of the world.

The first step to this end is to develop peace and goodwill within our borders, by training our youth of both sexes to its practice as their habit of life, so that the jealousies of town against town, class against class and sect against sect no longer exist; and then to extend this good feeling beyond our frontiers towards our neighbours.

Busy Half Term at The Fifth

Quick Update on what we’ve been up to

Those wires are going to be connected to a projector that we have had donated to the group. (Thank you!)

John has been installing covers for the lights, we’ve not had an accident yet but this will protect them from flying tennis balls and enthusiastic pioneering. John cut this all up, painted it and installed it to keep the cost low.

We spent an hour on sunday morning collecting litter – especially these annoying flyers.

Thank you everybody who has been so busy for the scout group.  See you at the Race Night!
