  • Easter Egg Competition

    As it is approaching Easter, I thought it would be nice to run a little competition for everyone in the District to take part in. Nothing too difficult – design your own Easter egg! It is open to every young person in Barnsley Scouts and there will be a winner from each section (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers). You can download the template below for them to design their egg on and once completed, they need to email their design to [email protected] – of course, parents/guardians may do this for them! They can use whatever they want to design it (on the computer, pens, paper, leaves – whatever they fancy!) and they have until 23:59 on Monday 5th April 2021. Please share amongst your groups!
