Ready Steady Cook Challenge

We had an excellent unit meeting recently where the Scouts and Explorers from UB41 completed the Ready Steady Cook Challenge to make 12 meals in just over an hour from start to finish with a bag of random ingredients… Another event and anther 4 very proud leaders! Apart from the salty mash and the chilli bomb omelette everything was delicious and we’re so impressed by the ideas you had and the way you made the meals… Really good work Jambo Superstars!

Today, once again, all four leaders were filled with pride as customer after customer complemented the young people of the Birmingham Jamboree Unit on their politeness, their helpfulness and their outstanding determination to be helpful.
