Our Cub pack has continued to meet virtually using the Zoom cloud meeting application since the suspension of face to face scouting Early March 2020. 

 Throughout the lockdown period cubs have continued to work towards completing their activity and staged badges such as, Artist, Home Help, Music, Hobbies, Chef, Personal Challenge, DIY, Gardening and more.  Cubs have also enjoyed bake off challenge by making a cake in a mug as well as taking part in activities such as the Hike to the Moon, Play your cards right, Catchphrase, Scavenger hunt, Quiz, Hangman, Knife, fork & spoon game and many more.

 As the summer term comes to an end with the last meeting taking place on Monday 20th July 2020, we also have to say a virtual goodbye to cubs who will now be transitioning to Scouts starting from September 2020.  They are Zainab, Isobel, Delvin, Dominic, Wren, Eesa & Avni.  It has been a great pleasure having you all in cubs and hope you have enjoyed your time with us and are now ready for a new adventure with the Scouts troop.  You will be contacted by the Scout Leader over the summer holidays with all the information required.

 As the for rest of the Cubs in the pack, we return to the Cubs zoom session on Monday 7th September 2020.  The latest update from the Scouting association is that we are at the amber stage of the return to scouting process, which means that Groups of 15 including leaders/helpers can meet in an outdoors environment with the appropriate risk assessment completed and approved before commencing any activities.  This at present will not be possible for the cub pack to meet face to face due to various restriction that are currently in place for the running of the different sections and will therefore we will continue to run cubs online.  I will keep you all updated if there are any changes over the summer break.

 Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation along with the restrictions that are in place at present, our main fundraising event “Fireworks and Disco Evening” which would have taken place in November has been cancelled along with the PGL Winter camp, that is normally held in December, has also been cancelled this year.
