Lockdown Artist

The Lockdown for Covid, definitely changed the way we deliver Scouting in Darlington . Most of it being presenting online with the likes of Zoom and MS Teams, County wide we had a Camp at home which all 3 sections Beavers, Cubs and Scouts got involved with.

Closer to home Darlington Beavers, Cubs and Scouts entered an Art Competition we had a good turn out of entries from all sections and members of the District Leadership Team were the judges.

The brief was a landscape and the pictures below were the winning entries for each of the sections.

Each of the winners received a Art Bumper Pack – Kindly supplied by Darlington Art Shop

The winners were

  • Ned = Beaver Section (Age 6 to 7 )
  • Jasper = Cub Section (Age 8 to 10 1/2)
  • Grace = Scout Section (Age 10 1/2 to 14)
