Eight 227th (Polar Bears) Scouts undertook a challenge from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, to advertise safety awareness on the coast.
The Scouts built two models - one showing the tide in and the other with the tide out. They then took photographs of their models and we went to a workshop at the Apple store, Cribbs Causeway. At the end of their visit they were given a copy of the DVD, a certificate and
t-shirt. With the help of the staff, the Scouts put together a DVD using their photos and also the research they had done on being safe on the coast.
The Group received a letter from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency congratulating them on a great project and awarding £500 first prize. So, an enormous THANK YOU to Sophie and Sally - Scout helpers and to Scouts - Hannah, Maggie, Esme, Gabby, James, Adam, Sam and Oli who have all received a book token from the Troop. The Group plans to use the money towards an adventure camp near the coast.
