Spring Term 2019
The Cub Pack has enjoyed a wonderful start to the year. We started 2019 with a fun evening of games to welcome our new pack members. We enjoyed learning semaphore skills and code breaking as part of our communicator badge. To help with our Skills challenge badge we ran a skills night, where the cubs practised everyday skills such as ironing, changing a light bulb, peeling vegetables and sewing badges on to our camp blankets.
Bagheera and Matt ran two fantastic archery sessions with the cubs and we were hosted by 1st Poulner Scout leaders for two great evenings on their climbing wall.
The Cub pack have increased their community impact this term working on a range of posters to help increase awareness of protecting New Forest ponies and other stock animals, by not petting or feeding them. The posters were used by The New Forest Roads campaign. The Cubs also completed a litter pick at Godshill Cricket Pitch and are working on bird feeders, planters and dog poop bag dispensers to help keep our town clean.
This week the Cubs ventured out on a night hike, they worked well together and those initally worried about walking in the dark quickly grew in confidence.
We completed the first sections of our Scientist badge with a range of fizzes, pops and various creations.
The pack welcomed a new section assistant this term, Raksha, who has been a great addition to the leadership team.
Next term we are looking forward to a range of summer events including the popular bird trail event, the Scouting the Zoo event and of course our annual camp out at Harry's Island.
