190205 Cubs

The final evening of group work on the Fire Safety badge.  The following topics, for those Cubs who have been present for the last 3 weeks (excluding last week and the hike) means that they have covered each of the following:



  • Emergency Drills
  • Emergency Escape Plans
  • Smoke & Heat Detectors
  • Dangers in the home and our Scout Headquarters
  • Campfire Safety
  • Firework Safety

We all like surprises ……………….. or do we?  The Cubs were given a surprise tonight! …………….. A surprise INSPECTION! Points were awarded for uniform, first aid kit, badges in the right places etc. – It appears that some of the Pack have forgotten the Scouting motto of “Be Prepared” because they forgot to bring certain items that they need every week ………….. just in case

The Cubs also enjoyed a game of hockey.

Congratulations to the following Cubs who received badges tonight:

  • Hikes 5 – Ben & Gethin
  • Joining In 2 – Daniel I
  • Joining In 3 – Harry
  • Joining In 4 – Tom P & Leon
  • Joining In 5 – Jordan (although I was informed that it was 5 DAYS EARLY!!! – Thanks Jordan!) 
  • Scout Mate Badges – “for introducing a young member or an adult to the Scouting team”
    • Aarav & Addi – Dad (Vishal) Member of our Group Executive
    • Finn – Dad (Con) Member of our Group Executive
    • Leon & Eden – Dad (Chris/ Baloo) Sectional Assistant

It is always very pleasing when a member of my leader team is recognised by the Scout Association for their commitment to Scouting and especially to our wonderful Scout Group.  HUGE congratulations to Janine (Ikki) for receiving her “Getting Started” badge and certificate as she starts on her path through her Leadership training.  It made me feel REALLY old; I completed my Basic Training (as it was then called) in 1982! 

Thank you to the many Cubs who brought in their Emergency Escape Plans – some really great work – Well done!



Points to-date: Each week the Cubs will be able to earn points for their six.  This can be by winning games, being helpful, attending church parade, bringing in stamps, coins and milk bottle tops (we collect these for charity) or for being the first six ready (and quiet) for an activity.



  • Blue Six – 685
  • Green Six – 290
  • Orange Six – 330
  • Red Six – 700
  • White Six – 565
  • Yellow Six – 270
