1st Oxshott's Cubs outdid themselves this week. They celebrated the Chinese New Year by collaborating to create this awesome dragon. I think you'll agree that it's a job well done so they could celebrate in style! Check the Cubs section for more pix.
Over 200 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Adult Unit Helpers took part in this year's Cross Country Race. Running on a new, more challenging course, the competitors this year had the benefit of timing chips to ensure that the finish times were more accurate than ever. Thanks to Anja, Andrew, Jack, Julian, Richard, Nicola, Susan, Corrie from 1st Oxshott, and all the district leaders and helpers for making this event such a success for everyone.

The cubs have been very busy in recent weeks. They've visited a synagogue and learned about the Jewish faith. And they had a go at using sharp tools (!) in making things.
Our Beaver Colony had a very festive meeting for our last of 2016. We would like to thank all the parents, helpers and friends who give us their time and energy to make this group so successful and virbrant.
Merry Christmas to all, and best wishes for a prosperous and happy New Year!

Four of our hardiest scouts survived Survival Camp at Walton First this weekend. They excelled at making their own tarpaulin shelter to sleep in, cooking a dinner of trout and then breakfast on an open fire and learning how to live wild. The same weekend saw some scouts go orienteering with the new Esher Scouts Orienteering Club, while others stayed for archery and air rifle shooting at the Scout Hut.
But there is no slowing down..... Next weekend is Patrol Leaders Day. Keep a keen eye on the calendar for more events coming up!
