On 2nd December 1989 Scouting in then Czechoslovakia (now The Czech Republic) was re-established. It was the third time that Scouting rose from the ashes after decades of being banned, first by the Nazis and then (twice) by the Communists. During the Velvet Revolution of 1989, Scouts met again freely for the first time in 20 years and the Movement was back. On this day in 1989, hundreds of scouts headed to Prague filled with great joy. They finally shook their left hands without fear. The city library was bursting at the seams with so many hearing about the restart

This week our Cubs packs were lucky enough to receive first aid training from our Groups' very own professional Tim. They learnt what to look for and how to respond in emergency situations, how to put patients in the recovery position, as well as how to bandage various body parts. They even got to take home a bandage of their own to practice their skills. Thanks Tim!

Today we remember and celebrate the Velvet Revolution in November 1989 in former Czechoslovakia (now The Czech Republic/Slovakia). With the freedom, this momentous event brought, scouts like ours could again celebrate being re-established following bans by previous NAZI and communist regimes. Since then, scouting in The Czech Republic has thrived and continues to be hugely successful providing fun, adventure and skills for life to 70,000 young people. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velvet_Revolution #velvetrevolution #praguescouts #skaut #scouts

The Beavers learned all about helicopters. The types, how they function – including how they take off and land. The Beavers then had the chance to actually get on a real helicopter. They all sat in the cockpit to experience what it's like when a helicopter pilot is flying. There were so many buttons. They also heard why the helicopter pilots wanted to fly and how much they need to study to make their dream come true. The Beavers all learned we all have a chance to be able to fly if we believe in ourselves and work hard. It
