Help celebrate VE day on May 8th with the 12th

On Friday May 8th the whole country will be celebrating VE (Victory in Europe) Day and here at the 12th we thought we should have a special celebration at home style party. All the instructions with lots of ideas for what you can do for this are in the attached document so have a read to get some ideas and remember you can add as many of your own ideas as you like too. Don’t forget to send us your pictures and if you are happy for a short film clip of your celebrations to appear on this website too then please follow the instructions on the attached document and send the clips to your leaders. Have fun everyone (and special thanks to Charlie and Kirsty for organising this). VE Street Party at Home...
Multiple Activities at the 12th

Multiple Activities at the 12th

You are all doing so many activities during lockdown that it’s very hard to keep up with them all. It has been wonderful to see how much you are all doing with camping, cooking, making things, walking to the moon and making rockets and so much more. You can see lots of examples of this if you have access to our various Facebook groups but here are just a few of them for you to enjoy. Well done to everyone who has done an activity and well done to Hamish, Finley and Arlo, Andrew and Ollie, Billy and Ashley for the things you did in these photos: Andrew and Ollie campingFinley and Arlo campingAshley and Billy with the hedgehog houseAshley and Billy campingHamish washing a spudHamish cookingHamish serves dinnerHamish washing upHamish in his rocketHamish...

As part of the recent camp out fun that many of you have been having recently, Ollie Colwell (with some helpers) made a great camp and even had a virtual camp fire with marshmallows. Well done Ollie (and helpers), that looks fab. Here’s a short film about what Ollie got up to for you to enjoy too …....

Trey Koko’s walk

One of our Beavers (Trey) has walked his 1 mile recently (if you are part of the Beaver Facebook group you can see his video on there) and he did this in his garden for 20 minutes. Well done Trey we are proud of you. In addition Trey’s family and friends sponsored him and he raised a total of £50 which is terrific. Amazing...

Jacob Whincup on camp

Hello all, it’s Bagheera (Seán) here and it has been great to hear from the leaders all about how many of you are carrying on doing Scouty stuff at home during the lockdown (exactly what I would expect of the 12th who, as we all know are the best). Jacob has been really busy over the past few weeks and he and his Mum have sent us some great pictures and news of what he has been up to. Here is what Jacob has told me in his own words (sort of): “I’ve been busy doing lots of outdoor activities.  Last weekend I went camping in the garden. I took mum and dad with me! First Dad and I pitched the tent – I did most of the work but Daddy helped me with the tricky bits. Then we set up the fire pit and I made the beds for everyone.  Next I cooked dinner over the fire. It was my first time cooking on a fire.  Sausages and beans was on the menu. It was yummy and I even did the dishes Beaver style. It was great hanging around the fire and I kept it going for hours before bed. I got a bit cold in the night so I hopped in the middle and Dad slept on my little bed. I slept like a baby after that. I went for a walk through our woods on my daily exercise yesterday and picked up some bits like moss and leaves and then I used them to make some pictures. My favourite is my rugby pitch. I’ve also made a...
