A successful bake sale

   |   By  |  0 Comments

The 20th Ansar family (members and parents) came together to host a bake sale at Al Bayyinah school before half term. This raised over £60 for the group which will be used to invest in further activities for the members. A big thanks to all involved!

2 years and counting

   |   By  |  0 Comments

The 20th Ansar family came together for a 2nd Anniversary Jamboree on the 6th of Feb. The occasion marked two years since the 20th Ansar started.

Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and parents come together at the HQ in Marlborough Pavilion. Games, food and an outdoor fire (much needed as it was rather chilly!) were set up to keep all entertained.

We hope and pray that the 3rd year of the Ansar sees continued progress, further members and even great memories iA!

Entertainer Badge

13th and 20th Feb: As part of the Entertainer badge, the Ibn-Sena (Cubs) were split into groups and tasked with coming up with a short play and song to perform in front of the whole group.

The exercise was covered over 2 sessions to give the teams time to plan, practice and then deliver the final performance.

Groups were given an ‘Enchanted Forest’ theme to base their play on and were supported by the older Scouts group.

As you can expect, there was a lot of fun and creativity at these sessions with all members/leaders having a great time.

Beavers In Tents

25 Jan 2020: It was sleepover and adventure time for the Ibn Battuta (Beavers) group on the weekend of 25 Jan. 

Spending a night at the district camp HQ, it was the first time many of the 10 beavers had spent time away from their parents. But they were far too busy to be missing home with games, marshmallow roasting and stories aplenty keeping them occupied. 

Beavers helped setup and then tidy away their tents. An experience to help get them ready and primed for the outdoor camps that lay ahead 🙂
