    During our pack night, we had some friends come to visit us. Some were faster than others and despite what the pictures show, no snails were harmed during the evening.

  • Cubs Incident Hike

    Author: Bev Pryke | Date: 28th March 2015

    Medway Towns District organised a fantastic Cubs Activity Day. Over 140 Cubs took part, working together in teams of six. We entered 2 teams.

    The Cubs enjoyed a range of activities including fire lighting, woggle making, mini pioneering, orienteering, first aid, carry the bomb, puzzle box & spiders web. The teams had to navigate their way around Buckmore Park using a map so it was a great mix of traditional Scouting Skills alongside teamwork puzzles & challenges.

    Both our teams performed brilliantly finishing in 2nd place (medal winners) & 4th place out of 24 teams. Most importantly all the Cubs had a very challenging and fun filled day!

  • Champions League Football

    Champions League Football

    Author: Bev Pryke | Date: 14th March 2015

    13 Cubs, 1 Scout and 1 Beaver from 24th set off in a minibus to the Amex Football Stadium in Brighton to watch a Championship League Football match.

    We arrived at the school shelf seating to find that we had each been given giant foam fingers, so that was the afternoons entertainment sorted. The match was exciting, 2 yellow cards, the first goal was offside and 2 further goals resulting in a 1 all draw. We all agreed that Brighton did well to hold Wolves to a draw.

    On the way home we called into a McDonalds in Sussex for supper. Many muffins, milk shakes & McFlurries were consumed!

    A top day out for the Cubs & a safe, controlled way to experience the thrill of Championship league football.

    Brilliant news!

    Our team came 1st in the annual District Fizz and Quiz. 

    After passing a uniform inspection they answered lots of challenging questions on subjects including scouting, general knowledge, geography, sport, TV & films and a local knowledge picture round to complete. Large quantities of fizzy pop, crisps & biscuits were also consumed.

    The Cubs all had a really good time and were delighted to win medals and reclaim the winners trophy!

    Tonight the Cubs proved you don't have to be tall to build big as they used their pioneering skills to build the tallest tower. Pictures can be found here

  • Invicta Arachnids

    Author: Bev Pryke | Date: 7th October 2014

    We were lucky (or unlucky depending on how you feel) to have a visit from invicta arachnids on our pack night. The Cubs loved our visitors

    The leaders - lack of photographic evidence suggests they stayed firmly behind the camera!

  • 24th Cubs visit to Royal Artillery

    Author: Bev Pryke | Date: 27th September 2014

    On Saturday 27th September we joined other Cub Packs from around the Medway Towns District to visit the Royal Artillery Museum in Woolwich. We were met by "real soldiers" who were our tour guides for the day. First of all they painted our faces with camouflage paint then took us round a series of adventures. We shot air rifles, dressed up in WW2 clothes, did a bungee run, made swords & medals, fired foam rockets and did military drill. After lunch we had a guided tour of the museum and squeezed in a visit to the gift shop.
    We returned home home having had lots of fun and a very enjoyable educational day.
