On Saturday 22nd of October 1st Madrid helped out at the jumble sale held at St George’s Anglican Church.
Two Beaver Scouts had the chance to interview chaplain Father Paul Ormrod and church librarian Jenny Effer to discuss how our Scout troop can help the local community in the future. Both Beavers asked very interesting questions about the community that St George’s serves, about where the money raised is spent and about what our troop can offer.
The children were delighted with the experience of interviewing two such kind and caring adults. The next step is for them to present their findings to their fellow Scouts when we are on a troop sleepover next month. Some very practical ideas came out of these interviews. We are all going to be motivated to put the plans into action with these two prospective Chief Scouts as the champions of the cause!
