Cubs 1

If you have been on the King Georges field recently, you might have noticed crocuses coming into flower along the verge by the scout and guide building. The bulbs were planted last autumn by the 1st Tarvin Cub pack as the first stage in our ongoing commitment to enhancing the village and caring for the environment.

The Cubs and Beavers also care for the Millenium Garden and do regular litter picking patrols around the village when there is sufficient day light in the early evening.
