As always the cub section has had another productive and fun filled year. Most notable for the number of new leaders and helpers we now are fortunate to have.
I feel we have a great leadership team now and intend to use them to the full in the coming months.
Not that we haven’t been busy since last year’s report, making model planes from lollipop sticks, finding out about recycling, watching the stars, played new sports for the fitness challenge and of course passing badges and camping!
Two more Chief Scouts Silver Awards have been awarded – congratulations to both cubs.
This year’s cub camp was held at Fox Coverts Scout campsite, set in a wood the cubs enjoyed building shelters, lighting a fire then cooking their evening meal on it, backwoods style using only foil and sticks. For many the highlights were our wide games which had them all running though the woods for many a happy hour. The cubs also had fun with a quiz and a many small ball bearing puzzles which was the only rest before another wide game and a great sing song round the campfire to end the busy day.
We welcome new leaders and helpers to our team Sarah Watson, Drew Allen, Aimee Gamble and returning as a young leader Issie McElhone. Who join myself, Terry, Dave, Haley, Katherine and Nuttavee. Sorry to report our wonderful compére of the Carol service and cub helper Jonny Green has had to step down very gently due to a very serious back injury, we all wish you a full recovery Jonny.
