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.

A brilliant turnout saw it all done in less than an hour.

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

Base Marshalling for St Christopher’s Fun Walk

The scouts and explorers donned their onesies and spent the day at Keston Marshalling Bases 24&25 of the St Christopher’s Fun Walk.

We were signing cards and giving out water as well as encouraging the walkers on their way. For some of them, we were at the 10-mile marker with only a mile to go.

Rob’s mum passed through our base and for some of us, her t-shirt reminded us why we were there.

Busy fundraising weekend

Over 60 of us from the 5th helped Beckenham Round Table 104 run their fireworks this weekend.

We left the park spotless!

Thank you so much to all involved. That’s our biggest ever turnout and easily the worst weather. It’s very reassuring that we get so much support from our families and members.

We are careful with your money

The Fifth has doubled in size in 10 years and, to match the growth, we have had to buy an awful lot of kit. We welcomed girls in 2007 and that meant we needed more new tents, toilets and changing areas. We are careful with your money and we shop around for months to find the best deals for The Fifth. How about some examples?
