Ice skating
25/11/2022 By Helen Williamson

 A great night tonight, with Griffin Scouts and Brussels Explorers at the Poseiden Ice rink.  It was disco night, with bright lights and music and a friendly atmosphere.

Some of the scouts were skating for the very first time, and were helped by the others to learn the basics. It was good to see them giving this a go and getting back up, after the inevitable slips and falls and trying again. 

We like to do our Investitures on a memorable occasion whenever possible.  We couldn't quite manage that on the ice, without causing a hazard, so we invested 10 of our new scouts in the skate collection area, while it wasn't busy. Not only a first for us, but probably for the smiling staff members too. We also officially welcomed a new leader, TJ, to the troop.

Campfire

 

It was great to see around 150 people at our Light up the Forest event this November.

Both from 1st Brussels, Central Brussels, 1st Waterloo and Danish Scouts

Everyone enjoyed the BBQ, lanterns and Campfire

The scouts also enjoyed lazertag. Our EU was camping and did a fantastic job of catering for the BBQ, a big thanks to them.
Sunday morning they hiked to the Remembrance service in Oud Heverlee from the campsite.

Queen Elizabeth II

British Scouting Overseas extends its deepest condolences on the death of our patron, monarch and sovereign - Queen Elizabeth II. As we remember Her Majesty, we give thanks that she has been Patron of The Scout Association since she came to the throne 70 years ago. We also recall with gratitude the support she has extended to Scouting  throughout her long reign. 

Most especially we remember her strong commitment to duty and service to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.  

Our sympathy and prayers are extended to the entire Royal family. The loss of such a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother will be deeply felt.
