Thinking Day 24th Feb 2018.
On Saturday 24th February, we held our annual thinking day service at St
Barnabas Church, in order to celebrate the birthday of Lord Baden Powell.
As well as our Church service, we also had our Thinking Day meetings for
Cubs, Scouts and Explores in the Grounds of the Church and old Scout
Hut. Running our meetings there once a year is very important to the 53rd
as it is the birthplace of the Group, and also keeps our connection with the
Church. After the meeting we had our Church service, where both Cubs
and Scouts read out loud and all joined in on the hymns. The vicar also
blessed the 53rd glass stained window. Over all it was a very nice service
so that we could all celebrate Thinking Day together.
Jambowlree 2018
The 53rd Explorers and Scouts have already started training for our Ten Pin Bowling
Competition which will be held in May for the Scouts and Explorers. This will be the third
time the 53rd has taken part. The Jambowlree is organised by Leaders of the Farnham
Explorer Scouts, based in Surrey in the UK, to raise funds to support the Explorer units
activities such as summer camp, international trips and subsidising those who otherwise
would not be able to afford to go.
Family hike down the Caledonian Falls 25th March.
On Sunday 25th March we will be organising the Family hike down the Caledonian Falls Nature Trail which is
between Troodos and Platres.  The bus will leave the scout hut in Moutayiaka at 8.00 am.  It will take us up to the
top of the Caledonian falls where we will be left there to start our hike at 9.00am.  It should take us approximately 2
½ hours to walk down the nature trail, this includes a stop at the falls.  Once at the end of the trail we will get back
on the bus and if the weather is good go to Omodhos Village for a 45min visit. We will be back in Limassol at 2.30
pm. Hikers are to bring with them water, waterproof jacket, an extra sweater and a snack to eat at the Falls, ie
chocolate, nuts, Sandwich etc. all packed in a backpack. This activity is open to all members of the 53rd with their
Parents and friends.  The cost of the activity is €8 per person to be handed in by the 17th March, after this date we
will not be able to accept more participants
