More Scouting Adventures during May, June and July

15th Wallington completed their term’s programme with a games in the park evening

Lots of fun, egg and spoon, but I suspect the sack race was the best.

The greatest picture though is of this Cub’s smile having received his badges.

5th Sutton ended their term with a party as they wanted to say a big thank you to Jeanette the Scout Leader who had also been running the pack since their last Akela left two years ago. Their new Akela picks up the reins from September.

Excellent demonstration of Limbo and donkey rides.

Water bombs were a great favourite before Jeanette was surprised with a special cake

8th Cheam have been very busy with a special project this term.

They held a skip-a-thon to raise money for T11 cancer ward as a recognition for the help given to a Leader’s child who had to undergo treatment there recently

An amazing £470 was raised and will be greatly appreciated at the hospital.

14th Wallington were at camp for their group’s AGM in July.

Archery, shelter building food and a game of Kubb were some of the activities to keep the Cubs happy. The Scouts had fun too with some Geocaching.

What camp would be complete without a campfire and maybe an investiture of a new Assistant Cub Leader too. Welcome to Clare Coppin.

1st/16th Sutton  Cubs were under canvas for a weekend in June at Frylands Wood

The Beavers joined them on the Saturday and as well as taking part in the site’s tunnels and activities they also made kites which was a great success

In June the heat was increasing and the weather was improving so 11th Wallington went on a hike. Families and friends were welcomed at Oaks Park.

During the course of the hike they stopped for lunch and finally ended up at the beautiful Lavender fields. The smell must have been delightful.

8th Sutton Trinity took their children to the RAF Museum at Hendon

What a lot of aircraft to see and so much information towards their Staged Air Activity Badges.

May Bank Holiday Weekend

Over 200 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts undertook Nights Away experiences and achieved in excess of 500 Nights Away on one Bank holiday weekend thanks to all our brilliant adult volunteers.

Leaders Games workshop

An event for all the members of our leadership teams across the District to join in a Games workshop to learn some new games for the enjoyment of the members of both Cubs and Beavers

Hope you all went and enjoyed it?

 Look out for another one details coming soon.

 Chess Tournament

February saw some of us assembled at St John’s Church Hall Belmont for another great chess tournament with lots of concentration during the afternoon from all the Cubs taking part.

A good outcome for our individual winner from 1st Homefield

Our team winners of the Brian Fisher Shield were 3rd Cheam, yet another new name on the shield. Well done to all who took part.

Thank you to all the support staff for running another brilliant event.

 2017 Quiz

The New Year started with our District Quiz held at the HQ in Wallington. Well done to all the teams that entered and especially a warm welcome to 1st Homefield their first team entry. 18 new Cubs and 3 adult volunteers. They are a really friendly bunch.

It was also the first event for our new ADC(Cubs) Mrs Sian Hewitt who has already learned the way to the Cubs hearts. Drinks and biscuits.

The tie breaker round was to build a structure from playing cards. Not easy for our Cubs I noticed and even harder for me.

Congratulations to 14th Wallington our winners this year
