World Food Fair

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.

#YouShape Week

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.

Life Hacks

Dan brought us a list of top ideas that will change your lives – how did we ever live without them before?

Who knew you could make glasses out of old bottles, cook cheese on toast in a toaster, make handy iPhone holders out of old milk cartons and fold a t-shirt in 2 seconds?

Hurricane Heroes!

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.

Team Tom

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.

Wye Cruise

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.
