This week was our world food fair.
We spent the evening cooking loads of dishes from all over the world using a variety of cooking methods – most worked pretty well!
We cooked paella on the fire, naan bread in a tandoor oven (might have been a flower pot…), onion bhajis on a gas stove and loads more.
Four members of K2 joined other Explorers from across Wrexham for their Bronze DofE Expedition training weekend.
They worked very hard to complete their routes & are now looking forward to walking it in a few weeks time.
Two teams raced to create a bridge across the hut from pioneering poles.
After joining together, they created a super bridge all the way down the room.
In the run up to #YouShape 2016, we want to know what you want from K2. It might be a new game, a trip, a different activity, to learn a new skill, or maybe a camp somewhere new. Whatever it is, we want to know!
So during the first week in February, we’ll be trying new activities to explore your ideas for the unit. Then, on Saturday 6th February, the whole District is joining up to share these ideas, talk about upcoming events, play some games & take part in a National event – you’ll also get pizza for lunch & a special badge for joining in!
All you need to do to join in the fun, is text the number on the attached flyer & bring the slip with you on the day!

Please talk to us if you have any questions.

Great night rafting & kayaking on the Flash. Thanks to Gethin at Gresford Sailing Club, Ian, Rachel & Jack for their help putting the evening on, and to Terry for towing the trailer.
Massive well done to those that turned out despite the terrible weather conditions: John, Butch, me, Dan, Jordan and Thom you are all heroes who risked getting the insides of your cars slightly damp.
The Explorers who went out into the hills also did quite well.
K2 Trophy goes to Team Chris who won by topping up their bottles with questionable fluids.
Another great Wye Cruise, this year seeing getting on for 200 Scouts from across the UK descending on the river accompanied by the usual handful from K2.
The weather was kind with the only rain being in the evenings when we could shelter in our tents, or in the local hostelries.
Well done to those paddling who did really well.
On the eve of one of the most closely contested UK General Elections in history, we invited the candidates standing in Wrexham to answer our members’ questions, then held a vote at the end.
