As this is my first Christmas, I had no idea that there was so much going on! I heard that the Christmas tree was going to be decorated and thought that I might help. (My good turn for the day).

I'm nearly there and holding on tightly ...   Good job someone has turned the light on.....

VISIT TO YENSTON CLOSE

I’ve just had a great time! I visited retirement/sheltered housing in Yenston Close, Green Lane, Morden, to sing Christmas carols  with 3rd Cheam Group and deliver Christmas presents to the residents who live there. There are about 40 flats, a lot for me to get round to with my little legs so I met many of the residents in the lounge.

They seemed very pleased to see me and they all wanted to have their photo taken with me. I tried to sing the carols, but I haven’t learned to read all those big words yet! The Christmas presents looked lovely, all wrapped in shiny paper and I helped the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to hand them out.

 

 

I want to know what’s in this parcel?

Phew! I’ve been very busy bag packing in our local Sainsbury’s with the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts of 3rd Cheam. I helped to hold the carrier bags while they did the packing. The bags are so big and I’m so small, I thought that I might end up going home with a customer.

People kept putting strange things into buckets, which I couldn’t understand, but my Leader said would be very useful.

 

 

I’m trying to see what was in those bags?

I met a soft brown bear and a great big bear who wasn’t wearing a scarf like me.  He had a ribbon around his neck with a heart on it.

 

NOW I WONDER WHAT’S IN STORE NEXT? 

 

CHRISTINGLE

My masterpiece for the Christingle Service

1st Cheam Cubs were at the Christingle service held at St Dunstans Church in Cheam Village. Snaggles just had to attend to learn all about this annual event.

A kind person helped me create my Christingle.

 

Just checking out the uniform is all present and correct and having a good look round at all the happy faces.

Father Darren shows me what he sees – happy smiling faces.

 

During the service Father Darren explains the meaning behind the Christingle.

The orange is the world,   the red ribbon is the blood of Christ,  the candles the light of the world,   the raisins and the sweets are the  fruits of the earth and the four seasons.

 

11th Wallington Bag Packing

Another big store where we can help the shoppers.

Another big store where we can help the shoppers.

This morning, I went to Sainsburys in Wallington.

There I found the 11th Wallington Cubs and Scouts, and also some Explorer Scouts (who are going to the World Jamboree in Japan in 2015) were helping shoppers pack their bags, to raise some money.

I had a lovely time helping the shoppers, and we also had a special visit from our local MP, Tom Brake, who came along to lend a hand!
