Cubs is the next stage of Scouting, for young people aged between 8 and 10½ years old. There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout, and you’ll get a chance to try lots of different activities like camping, kayaking, music, exploring, computing and archery.
Our Cub Pack meets on Wednesdays from 6.30 pm to 8.00pm at Colville School.
on the 7th of july the 27th scout group did an environmental project day in which there was 3 different activities.
1. A litter-picking session,
2. a church clean up and hedgehog home making session and
3. A garden makeover.
I was part of the garden makeover.
Before makeover, the whole garden, a bush
When we saw that we were meant to level this, i’m sure a few of us felt a little disheartened. But does that stop the 27th scouts? No it doesn’t. So we set of on the 2 hour makeover and sure enough, we started to make good progress. Discovering a part of the garden that had probably not seen sunlight for the better part of 3 years was interesting as there was a long forgotten water butt and a packet of unopened magic stars that were long out of date. Also, we had a little competition, Who can find the weirdest thing? Ranking 1st came a bird table which had been swallowed up by the bush. Ranking 2nd was a thermal jacket.
After about an hour we had finished a little more than half the garden and we were feeling proud. And for some reason, we were asked to keep the bush at the back of the garden. So we decided to keep it in style, we gave it a bowl cut (no bowls used). Soon we found that our Madingley Mulch cutting bags were full, so we did what was necessary and jumped on them. At the end of the session it was impossible to recognise the garden as it was before and we were ready for the AGM (annual group meeting) barbecue.
