Blackhills Dry Stone Walling Team
The next dry stone walling session is 14/15th July. We also have been asked to put on an evening session for some Scouts from Brough who are on camp the last week in July. If you can help these sessions are 6:30 pm for 2 hours Wednesday and Thursday 25/26 July.
The dry stone walling sessions at Blackhills for the next few months of 2018 will be:
We will start each day at 10 am and finish not later than 4pm.
You will need a packed lunch and drinks for during the day (hopefully the Eaton will be available for hot drinks, but can’t guarantee it).
As before the dress is stout boots, gloves and clothing you don’t mind getting dirty in. Hopefully the weather is improving, so we might start to need sun hats and extra water.
We’re making progress, but there is still a lot of wall to do. Please try and encourage others to join us so we can make even more progress.
If there are others who you know who might be interested, please let them know we’d be pleased to see them and training is still available.
Please let Ian Lund know which days you can attend.
Every child has the right to an adventure. Life is about grabbing opportunities. The prizes don’t always go to the biggest, the best and the strongest – they go to those who persevere. These are simple life lessons that Scouting teaches.
Scouts today are full of fun, adventure and excitement. I’m so proud to wear Baden-Powell’s Silver Wolf, but more importantly, the scarf.
Scouting’s 500,000 members are an inspiration. It's great to see it. It's all about friendship and fun and adventure – people who might not normally have the chance for adventure. Scouts are shining lights in their communities.
Two things matter in life: following your dreams and looking after your friends. This is what I love about Scouting. It’s about doing great things, loving and enjoying the great adventures and helping others to do the same.
I want the public to know how Scouting continues to open young people’s eyes to a world of extraordinary promise and possibilities.
