Opening of Our New Cub Pack

The group is pleased to open our second Cub Pack. The pack was formally opened last Wednesday following a number of months work with Mark Guy, our County development office. The group was growing following the opening of our second Beaver Scout colony, and the Tiger Cub Scout pack outgrowing itself. which required a second pack. 

Our main target was to put together a leadership team, which was the major challenge. After several months of planning and preparation we held an open evening inviting those who were beavers or on our waiting list, who are to become 8 in the next few months along with their parents. Following this evening a team of six adults have stepped up and volunteered to lead the young people through their cub scouts. These were invested by our District Commissioner, Wendy Keeley. Two leaders were also recognised as they have completed they initial leader training.

Before investing 9 new cubs two beavers who were moving up to Cubs recieved their Chief Scout Bronze awards.

9 cubs were invested by Craig Edwards (Cub leader from Tiger Cubs Scout pack) and presented with their group scarves from Group President, Brian Eastman. In addition one cub has taken the choice to move packs to suit his evening activities.

It is hoped that by the start of September the pack will be up to full size with 24 cubs. If you wish for your child to join the group please click here
