Cub Scouts

Cubs

Cubs meet during school terms on Tuesday evening 6:30pm to 8.00pm. We have about 25 cubs and may have some room available if parents want to get involved. We are looking for boys and girls aged between 7½ and 11 years old who live near the hall and are looking for an activity outside of school hours. The group also needs adult leaders, particularly females to help keep the pack vibrant.

The Cub section is run by Zander Conway (Bagheera) with Paul Gamble (Kaa), Christian Burns (Rama) and Damien Buick (Baloo) together with youth assistants from time to time.

Leaders take on names of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book – Akela (Wolf), Rama (Wolf), Rikki Tikki Tavi (Mongoose), Baloo (Bear), Chil (Kite), Raksha (Mother wolf), Bagheera (Black Panther), Kaa (Python).

The pack comprises small groups (called sixes) of cubs, each led by a sixer and seconder. On section nights they gather around the rock, upon which sits Akaela, the head wolf. Every week cubs repeat, “we will do our best”.
