A fabulous morning was spent by 1FG Beavers, Cubs and Scouts walking out to Little Eye with the rest of West Wirral District Groups for a Scouts Own renewal of our Promise and some investitures, before heading back to West Kirby for an inter-group Sandcastle Competition.  We created our own Sand Dragon, and came Joint 1st Place. Bravo everyone.   The weather was kind to us, and overall with well over a hundred Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, along with Explorers and Leaders, we made a lasting impression to the public who saw us.

Joint 2nd Place at The Great Escape

Posted on March 25th, 2018 by Colin Ratcliffe

The Great Escape is a challenging competition for Scouts requiring teamwork, leadership, and initiative. Patrols must visit 15 different bases – a challenge awaits them at each. Each challenge is on the theme of ‘escape’ and runs along the lines of a ‘now get out of that / crystal maze’ type theme.

So in 2018 1FG have once again done brilliantly in this County Competition, and finish in joint 2nd place out of a total of 71 teams. A huge BRAVO to our Scouts and big thank you to David and Charlotte for making this another success for 1FG.

Cubs Take the Title – District 5-A-Side Champions 2018

Posted on February 20th, 2018 by Colin Ratcliffe

 We are delighted to report that this years District Cubs 5-A-Side Football Champions 2018 are 1fg Cubs.

We had two teams enter the competition, held at Leasowe Recreation Centre. Both teams played their best in the qualifying group stages, with our A team winning their Group and the B team missing out on the chance to go into the quarter finals despite their efforts. 

The A team won their respective quarter final and semi final, although 1st Thurstaston did take the semi final to a nail biting finish, with 1FG coming out winners with a narrow 4-3 victory. The final was between ourselves and Newton, and with early pressure and goals, 1FG never looked back and went on to win convincingly.

We are absolutely delighted. This team has been trying for a couple of years, missing out in the quarter finals last year, so with perseverance they finally made it to the top. Well done to each and everyone of our Cubs who took part, and many congratulations from the Group.
