During half term, some of our beavers and cubs had the chance to speak to some cubs from Oakham’s twinned town of Dodgeville in the USA.

They are 6 hours behind us and so they got up super early and headed to school early so they could speak with us. Both sides asked lots of questions about scouts in America and the UK and we found there were some differences.

Hopefully this is the start of our groups being linked and this is the start of other conversations over the internet to learn about each other.
