Our Boy Scout and Explorer Section attended the the MSF ‘Global Islam’ Camp on the weekend 1-4 May 2015. They had the chance to discover the beauty and variety of art, architecture, language and customs that Muslim countries have to offer and share in this once in a lifetime cultural exchange opportunity. Travel to the lands where Islam has been practiced for many generations and learn where cultural traditions developed. During the three day camp they had the chance to take part in workshops and Scouting activities and have fun and meet with Muslim Scouts from around the UK and Europe.

Our Scouts have been learning about Astronomy and Islam. In a fantastic trip to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich they learnt about Seasons, Phases and Eclipses and watched the Solar System, Galaxy and Universe Planetarium show. It was a beautiful day and they got to spend time outdoors in the sun too!
Congratulations to our Girl Scouts who came top in this year’s NIGHT HIKE with an amazing 44 points! Our Boy Scouts came join 4th with a score of 35! Well done to all participants!!! The Night Hike is part of the Inter Troop Trophy Challenge so we should be in a good position to win the Trophy if we are able to keep up the efforts as we did last year!
Scouts spent some time learning about the deaf community. They spent some time learning how to sign the Adhan in British Sign Language.
