As has become tradition every year, August saw another BBQ at Tynemouth, held on Sunday 16th.
Members of the Phoenix ESU made their way to Tynemouth to be met by Leaders who had taken to BBQs, food, games etc. We were once again lucky with the weather and had a dry and mostly sunny day on the beach.
The day including some favourite activities like burying Explorer Scouts in the sand up to their neck and plenty of beach games and we also had the opportunity to invest two new members into the Unit.
Like all Explorer Scout investitures, this was intended to be memorable and involved the new members standing in the (cold) North Sea to make their Scout Promise, surrounded by other Unit members and Leaders.
Thanks to the organisation of Leaders Simon and Ruth, the BBQ was again a great success with plenty of food and drink and a nice relaxed atmosphere.
