HUNDREDS of young people from across Falkirk district took part in this year’s annual fun day.

Leaders from across Falkirk joined colleagues from Forth Region to offer a host of activities for the event.

Throughout the day participants were given a variety of challenges to complete, this included ‘writing’ their name with objects around the house, making a meal, attempting the neckie flip challenge, pitching a tent, learning new knots, taking part in the Float Your Boat Challenge and enjoying a home-based campfire.

And for all those who took part there was the chance to download certificates to add to their Scouting accolades.

The hope is that next year the event returns to Barrwood and the involvement of more than 1000 young people.

SCOUTS, Explorers, networkers and young leaders are being reminded that they can continue with their Duke of Edinburgh awards.

Staying at home does not stop all the opportunities open to the young people across Falkirk District.

‘DofE with a Difference’ allows participants to modify their chosen activities so they can still be completed while maintaining social distance.

And with the school term coming to an end it will be an opportunity to work on the different aspects of the award.

IN a similar vein adult training is also continuing with a variety of online opportunities.

Reminders are being sent out by UK Headquarters with the training everyone is required to complete.

If there are any questions get in touch with your training adviser or Assistant Region or District Commissioner (Adult Training).

Completed certificates can be passed to your training adviser or Assistant Region or District Commissioner (Adult Training) or your line manager.
