1st Tarvin Cubs - July 2014

Home » Newsroom » 1st Tarvin Cubs - July 2014

Since it began in January of this year, 1st Tarvin Cubs has gone from strength to strength. We are almost full now and we already have a waiting list.

In a little over six months our Cubs have achieved a number of awards and had a lot of fun. They've explored the Woodland (always a favourite) and worked with our Beaver Colony to renovate the Millennium Garden. At Broomheath Plantation, they learned valuable bushcraft skills, including fire lighting and tracking. They paraded with their standard in the village Fete procession and have attended regular church parades at St Andrew's church. We had a great day out at Cosford Air Museum where the Cubs gained the Air Activities award.

In their scout headquarters building, the Cubs prepared a sumptuous meal to gain their chef award and then enjoyed eating all the food! They made a lot of noise as they sawed and hammered to create notice boards for their D.I.Y. award and they spent a session cleaning and maintaining their bikes for the cyclist award. Other awards gained so far include the Community Challenge, Creative Challenge, Athlete, Communicator, Home Safety, Naturalist, Personal Safety, and Road Safety.

As you can see, it has been a hectic six months with some exciting activities! We've broken up now for the summer but Cubs will be back in September. We're changing our Pack meeting day from Wednesday to Monday so we'll be re-opening on September 8th. We've changed our meeting time as well so, from next term, we'll be starting at 6:15 and finishing at 7:45 p.m.
