We meet at our Scout Hut during term time on Monday evenings, from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. We do a range of activities around the Scout Association seven programme zones:
Discovering the World around you,
Beliefs and Attitudes,
Caring and the Community, and
Our evening meetings usually start with flag break and uniform inspection, followed by a couple of games. Afterwards we do a range of activities: arts and crafts; learning about other countries; practising map reading and navigation skills; cooking; team challenges. The more variety the better! And our cubs are very proud of all the badges they earn by doing these activities.
We try to hold meetings away from our scout hut at least once every term. We might go swimming, explore the local area or visit emergency services. We also have occasional activities at weekends. Past activities include camping and walks in the countryside.
Our pack has around 24 girls and boys in four groups, each called a six. Each six is named after a colour and is lead by an older cub (the sixer) and their assistant (the seconder). We use the traditional theme of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book to name our adult leaders and helpers. The Cub Scout Leader (Graham Hughes) is called Akela, after the wolf who led the wolf pack that Mowgli joined. Assistant leaders and helpers are named after other characters from the books. The leaders can be contacted from the main Cubs page.
Parent helpers are essential to the smooth running of the pack, and all parents are expected to help at least once each term. Please email dates when you can help.
All our Cubs have a great time on Monday evenings and would love to welcome new Cubs to the pack.
