LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
Throughout Covid, Scouting has played a vital role in continuing to give young people an opportunity to enjoy the Scouting experience. From running zoom meetings at the height of Covid, to socially distanced indoor and outdoor activities whilst always following the relevant safety criteria, Scouting has worked hard to maintain some normality for our young people. Young peoples’ lives have been so sorely disrupted by the restrictions placed on them during the Covid pandemic.
So as we return to more normal times and after a break of three years, West Lancs Scouts were thrilled to be able to restart their annual Bowlander Competition which has been run for many years. A test of the core scouting skills of team work, hiking, navigation, camping and cooking. The Scouts, all aged between 10 and 14 years, in small groups of 4 and without any adult, had to walk and navigate 20km on Saturday 26 March, cook their evening meal, camp overnight, cook their breakfast and then walk and navigate a further 10km on Sunday 27 March. This year 25 teams took part, who were all a credit to Scouting.
An invaluable experience in preparing young people with Skills for Life. Pride of place though went to 8th Penwortham St Teresa’s Scouts of South Ribble, who finished 1st, 2nd and 4th in the competition to win the coveted award.
All the Scouts are pupils at St Teresa`s Catholic Primary School or All Hallows Catholic High School.
Thrilled to be Scouting
