Hello from Ollie who goes to Scouts in Wellington New Zealand.

Ollie is Toby and Faith’s cousin and Skip’s nephew.

Skip has been staying with Ollie in New Zealand and went to Ollie’s Scouts group.

It’s the middle of summer in Wellington so they had a water slide going. Skip’s observations:

  • Scouts in New Zealand have as much trouble with fun getting in the way of listening as Scouts in Caldecote
  • Scouts in New Zealand are about as good as Scouts from Caldecote when it comes to knots (“How do you do a reef knot?”)
  • Scouts in New Zealand is pretty much the same as Scouts in Caldecote – although we can be a bit jealous that the weather there right now is good enough to get the water slide out.
