Cubs is the second section in the scouting family, after beavers and before scouts, and is open to girls and boys from the age of about 8 to 10 1/2 years.

Cubs make a Promise to do their best, to do their duty and to help others. They play games, go on outings and visits, go camping, learn about the outdoors, gain badges and create things.

When we’re not out and about, our Monday Pack meets on Monday Evenings. 6.30-8.00 at the Scout hut on Gilbert Road. Our Saturday Pack meets twice every half term from 11.30 – 4.00 at the same place.

Here’s some of our latest news:

When the cubs revealed last term that they had a voracious appetite for pioneering, I needed no second bidding. This term, they’ve been developing their skills in knotting and lashing and have become pioneering experts.

Early in the term, we spent an evening refreshing ourselves on some knots and some basic lashings, and put this into practice by building some A-frames.

Camp gave us an opportunity for a more ambitious project: a grand gate for our campsite!


Then this evening, we took things to another level, literally, with a rope bridge.
