We are thrilled to shine a spotlight on the incredible skills demonstrated by our Scouts in a recent session that showcased the essence of Scouting - learning skills for life. The atmosphere at St. Martin's was buzzing with creativity as our Scouts delved into the worlds of wood turning, wood burning, and poppy wreath creation.

Wood Turning Wonders

The rhythmic hum of lathes echoed through the air as our Scouts embraced the art of wood turning. From crafting intricate pens to turning bowls with precision, their hands-on experience showcased a blend of creativity and craftsmanship. These newfound skills are not only a testament to their dedication but also a step towards self-reliance.

The Beauty of Wood Burning

Wood burning, an age-old craft, captivated our Scouts as they transformed ordinary pieces of wood into works of art. The smell of burning wood and the sound of sizzling creativity filled the space. From personalized plaques to intricate designs, our Scouts explored the expressive potential of this unique skill.

Poppy Wreath Creation

In a touching tribute ahead of Remembrance Day, our Scouts channeled their creativity into crafting poppy wreaths. Each wreath is a symbol of respect, honoring the sacrifices made by those who served. The Scouts' thoughtful and meticulous approach to this project reflects not only their artistic abilities but also their understanding of the importance of commemoration.


At St. Martin's, we firmly believe in imparting skills that go beyond the ordinary. The wood turning, wood burning, and poppy wreath creating activities not only showcase our Scouts' talents but also emphasize the values of patience, precision, and remembrance - truly embodying the essence of #SkillsForLife.

Well Done, St. Martins!

A resounding applause to the Scouts of St. Martin's for their exceptional efforts and enthusiasm in embracing these diverse skills. Their willingness to explore new horizons and their dedication to mastering these crafts are a source of pride for our entire community.
