Last night was Nuneaton North Scout Group's AGM. This is the group my Dad was Group Scout Leader with for over 45 years (he did over 60 years in Scouting overall). I was also a member of the group, being Secretary, Beaver Scout Leader and for a short while Group Scout Leader before leaving to hold a District role.

In honour of Dad the group have a new trophy - The Ron Mellor Challenge Trophy - which will be awarded at Family Camp each year. Dad would be so proud, especially as it's a challenge for everyone involved in the Group.

I have not been involved in Scouting for the last three years - mainly a time issue. I had done 25 years in various roles. I am now back in Scouting, in my original role as Nuneaton North Group Secretary - and it feels just perfect :)

The weather has been glorious here - I haven't sat out much because it's been so hot but Ruby has enjoyed it.

We had a bird visit that I don't recognise - I think it's a baby which makes it trickier. Is it a thrush or I wondered at a baby cuckoo? 

No stitching this time because it's all exchanges or secret gifts :)

Finally back to Dad - he had a collection of mugs - we're not sure how or why it started, even Dad wasn't too sure but there are over 200 of them on display. This is just one set - I've no idea what we'll do with them all.

Have a super Jubilee Weekend - we're off to London to see the pageant, along with thousands of others so we may not get to the Thames. We're then going to a Jubilee Party on Tuesday - lots of photos next time, thanks for popping by this time :)


  1. A wonderful tribute form the scouts to dad, lucky person who gets to receive that each year.

    Have a wonderful time in London - dont forget to pack a sun hat!

  2. How lovely Clare you are back with the scouts ,and yes your dad would be thrilled.
    Have a wonderful time in London and I look forward to seeing the pics.

  3. Hello

    How lovely of the scout's to have a trophy from your Dad, a lovely tribute.

    Your garden looks beautiful.
    I think your wee bird could be a thrush.

    I hope you enjoy the Jubilee weekend.

    I love your August kitty finish, so cute!
