40s Friday Fun

We have now reached the last full day of NORJAM 2018 and our penultimate newspaper. We have still got remembrance poppies to decorate and display so please come along and contribute to our gateway!

Yesterday we were busy in the rain bailing puddles on the pathways to support our flood prevention scheme. Thank you to all the groups who helped in true 40’s spirit, it was much appreciated from all of us on the camp. Hopefully we have seen the last of the rain for this year.

The street party on Wednesday evening was a great success. We enjoyed the evening food tasting from as far north as Yorkshire and as close to home as Norfolk. 45th Norwich Scout Group made camp doughnuts which did not disappoint with the queue for the delicacy spanning far down the fire break.

Our Norwegian contingent have brought along a special gift to educate us on the war. They have told us about the golden paper clip which was significant to the country during the war. Norwegian civilians wore golden paper clips as a rebellious symbol towards the Germans. When Norwegians wore a paper clip during the war they would be sent to prison for rebelling. A golden paperclip signifies everyone sticking together.

We are all very excited for the Farewell Ceremony tonight and hope everyone has packed their best 40s costumes and will bring their finest dancing shoes. Let’s have a good one to bid farewell to NORJAM until 2022. Enjoy your day!

We’d also like to take the opportunity to congratulate Gemma Eglington on our sub camp team for the Award for Merit she has been awarded this week.
