The East Riding Country Fair and Family Fun Weekend was at Driffield Show ground which featured free donkey rides, free circus workshop, free climbing wall, free inflatable assault course, free bouncy castles and slides and a free kids farmyard petting zoo.
Scouts from the Wolds and Coast district were there too. 1st Bridlington camped overnight. A couple of the activities that the Scouts undertook were pioneering and building a canoe made with clingfilm.
On Sunday 13th December 1st Bridlington joined the rest of the Wolds and Coast Scout District for the annual Christmas carol service which was conducted by the Reverend Matthew Pollard.
As part of the service members of the district were given awards for long service to Scouting and some newer members were invested into the movement.
Many of the children bought with them gifts that were to be donated to the charity Action for Children. These gifts will be given to children at Christmas who may benefit from the kind generosity of our children.
On the final Scout meeting night of the year the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts of 1st Bridlington went Bowling at the Forum. Around 60 enjoyed an hours game. This marked the end of another successful year for the group.
This week, the local 1st Bridlington Cubs have been extra busy helping the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) by collecting a massive 19kg of used stamps; sorting them and sending them on to the RNIB who will use them to raise funds to support blind and partially sighted people.
9kg of these stamps was donated by Mrs. Joan Towse, wife of the late Rotarian Ken Towse.
The remaining 10kg came from a number of collection boxes that are located around Bridlington most notably in the Priory and Priory Rooms where the local community have been extremely supportive.
In sorting the stamps, the Cubs got to learn about postage systems across the world.
Cub scout Thomas Dixon, 11, said: “sorting them out into different groups and looking at all the different ones was fun.”
Cub scout Tommy McDonald, 9, said: “it was fun because there were lots of different stamps and you could see what they were. I learnt what different stamps were.”
Leading the 1st Bridlington Cubs, Michael Lupton said: “we have been collecting used stamps for three years. We are very grateful to Mrs. Joan Towse as well as Kirkgate House and all the parents for their help to send 19kg this year. Next year we hope to send 20kg. If you collect used stamps and want to pass them on to the RNIB please help this great cause.”
Terri Bush, RNIB volunteer coordinator said: the 1st Bridlington Cubs have been helping us for a long time now and have helped us raise many thousands over the years. They are a credit to Lord Robert Baden-Powell. We rely on groups such as the Scout Association to collect any amount of stamps from anywhere around the world at any time of the year.”

Today we were planting bulbs. Bridlington Lions bought us 1,000 bulbs as part of their ‘Lions Centennial Challenge’ where they hope to help 100 million people. We were also doing it as part of our ‘Scout Million Hand Challenge’ where young people are committed to removing social barriers, connecting communities and improving lives.
At 0815 this morning Gary and Isabelle were on the radio talking about what we were doing today.
and then at 10am we went planting 1,000 bulbs.
The Scouts have been to Primrose Valley for swimming and paintball.
