Some of the Show Jumping Arena team

Rackham Horse Trials

June took us to some horse trials in Rackham where we were the show jumping arena team. That meant that we were responsible for fixing the jumps if they were knocked down without getting in the way of the horses that were travelling at some speed round the arena! We were so professional that other event organisers have enquired about us helping with their events in the future.
The two days included: the bun run, several ice creams (for one person in particular), Pippa Funnel, Kelly asking Phili lots of obscure questions about horses, the economics of bouncy castles and quite a lot of sun cream.
We also took the time to set up the Tanzania teams very own Instagram account so please search for and follow us: 7thepsomafrica

Stoneleigh Broadway Fun Day

June team building saw the group minibuses get their annual wash before we headed over to the Stoneleigh Broadway Fun Day where we helped out by providing first aid cover and traffic management.
The first aider was the first casualty when a rose bush attacked them from nowhere!
The team took the opportunity to do some fundraising and we had a stall with a chocolate tombola, which went so well it sold out!

Bear meets the team and wishes us all good luck

Meeting Bear

May 12 was our next team building day.
The day began with singing the national anthems for both countries (the Tanzania one is in Swahili!) then we headed over to the district football competition where some of the team demonstrated their skills on the pitch.
A rare opportunity to meet Bear Grylls, Chief Scout, who flew in by helicopter was enjoyed by all (including some parents).
At the event the team all learnt to tie the Turks Head knot and create scout woggles.
When we got back to the scout hut we got the team to look at the scout promise and law and really think about what it meant to them and how it would influence their trip.
A yummy dinner of pizza finished off a great day.
