So an bright sunny April Monday, 3 days before Eid, 175 Squirels, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts descended on our Scout Hut to take part in the Iftar Under the Stars.
The eveing included activites that went towards the faith badges relevant for each section.
activities included, hijab and headscarf workshop, dress up corner (featuring traditional costumes representing the nations that make up our group), henna tatoos, Islamic biscuit decorating, Mini Mosque Exhibition, make a mosque and Qibla, Eid card and eid lantern, Humus making workshop as well as the Ramadan Quiz Trail.
at 8.04pm the scouts joined members of the 20tg St Albans Ansar in breaking thier fast with dates and water, followed by a sumptuous feast from dishes around the world.
we want to thank all the groups that attended. And hope to see you next year.
