The Cubs get quizzed during a Food-2-Fork visit at Tesco:




Cub Scouts are boys or girls aged 8 yrs to 10 ½ yrs.

What do they do?

They have fun, make friends, play games, make things, and learn new things.

There are 33 different activities that they can take part which include, water, artist, athlete, scientist, learn new skills, map reading, first aid, craft, DIY and many more.

They go out hiking, camping and on trips to museums, zoo’s and pantomimes etc.

Scouting helps children to join in, have fun and help one another.

The Cubs have been doing a variety of things this year. We visited behind the scenes at Tesco’s Chinese New Year Party and went to the Church Pantomime. We did the Fire Safety Badge with a visit from a very nice Fireman.

We have also done Athletics, Pond dipping and walked to Burrs Country Park. We had an American Night on July 4th and have taken a Communication Badge. We have taken Astronomers, Scientist and Disability Badges.

We visited the Mayor’s Parlour. We have planted one hundred daffodil bulbs to celebrate a hundred years of Cub Scouting. We had a Fancy Dress Party and went to see the Pantomime at Heywood Civic Hall.

Three of our Cubs achieved their Silver Award, the highest award in Cubs: Kaydon Collins, Finley McDonald and Edie Watson.

Thank you to John, Vicky and Alyffe.
