Oakwell Hall Summer Fair

A massive thank you to all who donated teddies and prizes for the tombola, and wine for the water and wine stall, and especially to those who gave up their time to help on the day. We made a very impressive £647.60, the Wine and Water made £316.50, the Tombolas made £303.10 and the Slinky Apples made £28.00. Thank you all again and Well Done!

Walesby World Experience 2007

28th July - 4th August 2007, seven Scouts and five Leaders from the 11th joined four leaders and fourteen Scouts from 5th Spen Valley and visit the Walesby World Experience in Nottinghamshire.

This was a week long camp at the Walesby Forrest Scout Camp site in Nottinghamshire, where around three and a half thousand Scouts and leaders from all over the world joined together to celebrate 100 years of Scouting.

The Scouts and leaders took part in various different activities from Archery to Raft Building, Climbing to JCB driving and lots more. Also included was a day visit to Alton Towers Theme park, cycling in Clumber Park and a visit to the World Scout Jamboree at Hylands Park, Essex.

Kandersteg 2006

In the summer of 2006 we joined with 7th Spen Valley Scouts (another Gomersal group) and spent 10 days at the Kandersteg International Scout Camp, nestling in a Swiss Valley.

Cub Pack Holiday 2005

The Cubs and leaders spent a weekend at Squirrel Wood Scout Camp, near Doncaster. Lots of games, activities and fun for all.
