AXE, SAW AND FIRELIGHTING AT LUTTERWORTH
In June we ran an evening of training Lutterworth Scouts is the safe and correct use of axe and saw, together with lighting fire. All Scouts used a hand axe and bow saw to safely cut long branches down to a size suitable for a campfire, and lit campfires using just a handful of dried leavs as tinder and chippings from the axe training to supplement small twigs for kindling. No fire lighters were allowed! At the end of the evening, with two large blazing campfires, and a smaller fire producing just established enough to provide a few embers, the Scouts toasted marshmallows while engaging in the traditional Scout activity of staring into the flames – although not necessarily with quiet contemplation.
