Please support your Scout Group by coming along for a fun night out. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Older Cubs (9 and over) are to be invited to a Camp at Waddecar which is being held on the first May Bank holiday weekend (30th April to 2nd May 2011).

Those camping will take part in a range of activities towards badges especially Camping, Outdoor challenge, Naturalist.

On the Saturday afternoon we are holding the Pack of the Year Competition so a number of younger Cubs will be needed on site.
These younger Cubs (8 yr olds) who come up to the site for the competition will be able to stay for tea and evening campfire, leaving Waddecar at about 8pm. Sat. evening.

Look out for your letter soon.
If you can play chess and would enjoy playing in the District competition, speak to your Akela NOW. We can enter up to a maximum of 4 cubs from each pack, so don't delay - book your place today.

The Competition is on 19th February at Broughton HQ.

The 5 winning Cubs from District competition will be invited to play in the County Chess Competition which is held in our Annexe every year - this year it is on 12th March.
We currently have a joint Eagles and Hawks team that plays in the District Cub League on Saturday mornings.

We won the runner's up trophy in December, which we hope to retain at the end of the season in April, but now WE NEED MORE PLAYERS.

If you would like to play, please speak to your Akela.

Cost is £2 per Cub per game


Very well done to both our cub packs who took part in the District First Aid competition last weekend.

They had to tackle a number of challenging bases, including:
  • Open an airway
  • Minor & Major cuts
  • Burns & scalds
  • Put a casualty in the Recovery position
  • What to do at the scene of an accident
  • How to get help
  • Dangers in the home
Both teams worked well with the Eagles finishing 2nd and the Hawks 6th in the District.
Many thanks to everyone who has donated prizes so far.

We still need some more prizes and it's not too late to send your donations in. Please hand these in to section leaders over the next couple of weeks.
