Past 2 weeks at Explorers

Explorers have been back for two weeks now. We’re all excited for the new programme to drop so until it does we have been playing some old-school games as well as some classic Explorer favourites One week we’ve had merry miming game charades. Frustrating, confusing and amusing in equal measure the Explorers enjoyed this one! One syllable, sounds like Sun. Yep, you guessed it, it was fun. Explorer’s have also enjoyed some firm favourites like dodgeball and bulldog among others. If you’ve never played dodgeball the rules are simple. Just don’t get hit by the ball. The clues in the name you see, dodge-ball. Keep your eyes peeled online for the new programme which should be appearing very soon. It’s going to be filled with creative and exhilarating activities. Is there another organisation where you can find activities like Murder Mystery nights and axe throwing all in the same place? I can’t think of anywhere either.

Cooking Challenge

The first full week at explorer was a cook off challenge. The unit was split into groups and given 15 minutes to go into Tesco and buy food for 2 courses one main and either a desert or starter with only £5. Team MEB were victorious with spaghetti carbonara for the main and a delicious home made chocolate cake. The losers were team diabetes with a strange choice of doughnuts wrapped in bacon and gnocchi in a tomato sauce. The runners up had a delicious stir fry and pancakes with chocolate sauce just pipped by teamwork. {joomplucat:10 limit=4}

Bonfire Night

Remember remember the fifth of November, Gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder, treason, Should ever be forgot...

We deffinately didnt forget on Monday 5th with over 150 people attending the bonfire night at the Ranche. It was a good evening spent enjoying the fireworks and celebrating bonfire night with a bang, all topped off with a BBQ!! With a fantastic offering of cakes, tea coffee and tuck the evening helped raise some much needed funds for our Scout Group.

It was a fantastic evening with a great turnout, with parents, siblings, families  and a big thanks to all that helped out and made the evening a success!

New Toilets

Saturday 13th work started on the new toilets at the Ranche. We started off by ripping out the old toilets that had resided in the Ranche for over 25 years, this has now left an empty shell ready for the builders.

The money to carry this out has been donated by Trafford Housing trust and will help make our facilities a better environment for the young people in the group

Thanks to Pete M., Alan, Nick, Fish, Mr Anderson & Mr Sterlini.
