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.
