Campfire Ashes – World Scouting

1st Lightwater Scouts are very proud to look after and pass on ashes from over 350 campfires in more than 50 countries, going back to 1933!

Ashes  taken  from a campfire  are sprinkled  into the flames of  the next campfire. The next day when the ashes are  cold,  they are stirred and taken along to mix with the next campfire.  It  is  traditional  that only  those  present  at  the  ceremony carry away ashes from that  campfire. It is our wish that this tradition continues and we spread the World Fellowship  of Scouting. Come and join our Campfire!

Lightwater Fete – Scout Burgers

Another fantastic village fete, where we managed to provide Lightwater with its lunch time feast of burgers (thanks to George Arthurs Butchers). Our Cubs helped the village to decorate ‘Lightwater Rocks’ and our Explorers helped to sell drinks for the afternoon.

Thank you to everyone that helped on the day and all those that came and ate our lovely burgers : )
