Keeping Up To Date During Walesby Cub Camp

Depending on the phone signal and what time we have available we’ll be tweeting throughout the day from 1st Ripley’s twitter account @1stRipleyScouts In the evenings we’ll try and write a diary of what we have been doing during the day and get as many photos uploaded as we can.

We can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to tweet and post the blog posts it just depends on the signal strength on my phone!

The latest posts will appear at See you all at... read more
