On 14th April, teams of 4 young people from Groups across York took part in the York Cubs cooking competition at Snowball Plantation.
Despite being 1 man down, James Murray, Daffyd Chiplin and Adam Foster put in a great team effort to represent 1st Clifton and proudly showed off their many skills. They got their own fire stove going before peeling, cooking and mashing potatoes to serve with the peas and sausages that they also confidently cooked themselves.
For pudding they prepared freshly made custard from custard powder and milk which they served with Swiss roll. Finally they made tea or coffee for the judges before the inevitable washing up!
Well done to all our young people who came along to join the St George’s Day parade and service today along with our dedicated adult volunteers. Thank you for representing our Group so well with your smart turnout, excellent behaviour, great singing and efficient marching.
We’re very proud and you should all be too as this earned us the award for best Group in the parade for Minster District. Well done everyone!
We’d also like to congratulate Antony Hale, Group Chair and Acting Group Scout Leader, who was unable to join our parade in York today as he travelled to Windsor to collect a special award for his many years service to Scouting. Antony has been awarded the Bar to the Silver Acorn in the St George’s Day Awards, an award for distinguished service in recognition of his numerous roles over many years in the Group, District and at Snowball. Congratulations Tony!
The Annual Chess Competition between members of Minster, Ebor and Selby Districts and Guides from North Yorkshire South took place in March.
1st Clifton were represented by several Cubs and Scouts. Whilst not being amongst the overall winners, we congratulate our young people on taking part, on their enthusiasm and great behaviour and for trying their very best. Well done!
