Avon Scouts - working with Rolls-Royce, RNLI and Coast Guard

Added 6 yearss ago

Rolls-Royce sponsored Avon Scouts to run this activity with My Future My Choice Shipwright and 100 Scouts

 

Avon Patrols are quickly briefed in two sessions and building work begins with the "Giant Scouts" from Rolls-Royce supporting

 

 

 

 

Each Patrol sends Scouts to gather information from the Coastguard and Royal National Lifeboat Institution

 

 

  Information is synthesised and displayed  on each patrols boat. Scouts spotted the need to register their boat with the Coastguard before sailing it.

 

 

   


 

The boats were judged by shipwrights with advice from RNLI and Coastgaurd

Winners receive prizes from the Roll-Royce volunteers 

 

 

 

 

Rewards for attitude, wit and communication are needed next time -

A big thank you to Rolls-Royce from the Avon Scouts was found in Nick's hat

Avon Patrols are now challenged to

1. Ballast their boat with between 2 and 4 kilograms of very dry sand or similar material

2. Waterproof its hull with acrylic paint

3. Send in pictures of their boat at sea, on a river, or even floating in the bath tub

Please send pictures to info@myfuturemychoice.co.uk and see your boat in a procession to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee
