1st Fordingbridge Scout Group


1st Fordingbridge Cub Pack

Activity badges completed this year include Animal Carer, Artist, Astronomer, Book Reader,

Collector, International, Local Knowledge, Naturalist and Scientist.

Staged activity badges achieved this year include Community Impact level 1, Hikes stages 1,2,5, 10

and 15, Musician stage 1, Navigator Stage 2 and Nights Away 1,2,3 & 4.

Individual Cub Scouts have also achieved their Martial Arts, Physical Recreation, Nautical Stage 1

and 2 and Sailing stage 2 badges. It has been a pleasure to hear more about these activities and be

able to recognise these achievements within the Cub Pack.

We have participated in two Scouting The Zoo events, September 2018 and again recently in May

2019. Highlights have included learning more about the wonderful animals and meeting the

Brickosaurs. The children were able to play in a giant lego pit and everyone earned their Scouting

The Zoo blanket badge.

At Christmas our Cubs participated in the Scout Post and Co-Op Christmas collection fundraisers.

In May we entered the Bird Trail Event, organised by Hampshire Ornithological Society in

conjunction with the Wildlife Trust. Two teams made up of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts participated

in the competitive bird watching trail, in addition to a variety of activity stations including river

dipping, bird ringing, owl pellet dissection, light trap observation and birds of prey. One of our 1


Fordingbridge teams achieved second place, winning family tickets to Liberty's Owl, Raptor and

Reptile centre in Ringwood. Well done and a huge thank you to the organisers of this event.

Our programme continues to be planned around not only the activity badges, but also our challenge

badges, this enables our young people to work towards their Chief Scout Silver Award. We have 5

Cubs Scouts who have achieved their Silver Award this year, Gabriel, Luca, William, Ryan and

Charlie, what a great accomplishment! We look forward to seeing them progress through the

Scouting sections, as they leave us at the end of term to join the Scout Troop.

We enjoyed a very successful camp at Harry's Island this June. Sixers and Seconders arrived early

to camp on the Friday night, where they completed tasks in fire lighting, backwoods cooking and

camp skills. Saturday morning they worked as teams to cook their own breakfast and later learnt

skills in whittling and knife safety.

Beavers and the remaining Cub Pack members joined us on Saturday for a great nature themed

camp, we closed camp with a giant slippery slide down the hill that was enjoyed by everyone.

We look forward to completing the term in July with an evening at the beach, where the Cubs will

be participating in the Swim Safe scheme run by the RNLI, to learn open water safety skills.

What a great year, we are very proud of all that the Cub Pack has achieved.
