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!

Looks good, doesn’t it? Half the machines were donated by Trinity School and we bought some cast offs from a local school too. We stuck some ram in them last year and they are still excellent machines.

We took off windows and they are running Ubuntu 12.04 and they fly. If you have an old PC in the house, think about switching to a Ubuntu to give your PC a new lease of life. Some German cities are giving our free ubuntu CDs to help their citizens keep their computers running for a bit longer.

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.

Term draws to a close

Let’s keep the last post of the year simple.

Thank you to everybody who ran everyday adventure for our young people.
The leaders who turn out each week, who plan and who train to earn qualifications.

The people in the background who build, paint, drill, saw and help us grow.

The paperworkers who let the leaders do the fun stuff while the subs are collected, gift aid completed, accounts audited, finances recorded, waiting lists managed etc.

Thanks to the parents who trust us with their kids and who budget and save to send their kids away with us.

Finally a thank you to our beavers, cubs, scouts and explorers who make The Fifth one of the best groups in the district.
