Overstone Cub Pack Holiday 2015

On the 6-8th March, 19 Cubs,3 Young Leaders and 4 Leaders descended on to Overstone Scout Camp for a weekend of activities staying in the Will Smith Chalet.The Cubs arrived and soon found their dormitories and then went out with the Young Leaders to play a 'Wide Game'. On Saturday everyone enjoyed a hearty cooked Breakfast in readiness for the day's activities.

These activities included a Scavenger Hunt (run by the Young Leaders) and the first stage of the World Faith Badge (run by Tracy and Amber).After Lunch the Cubs continued with the World Faith Badge and Archery (with Fred and Lance). Karen prepared the evening Dinner which was Homemade Cottage Pie. Later that evening the Cubs had a Sing-Song around the fire followed by a Movie, with the Cubs settling down in their sleeping bags to enjoy popcorn and hot dogs.

Sunday,the Cubs woke up to 'eggy bread' for Breakfast. The morning activities started with the Cubs taking exercise on the Climbing Wall and  Assault Course.

At Cubs Own we reflected on the weekend's fun.

Two Beavers were invested into Cubs and then Chief Scout Silver Awards were given out.

Well done to all the Cubs for gaining their Awards.


Thanks for a really enjoyable weekend must go to Fred's Leader Team (Tracy,Karen and Amber) and  Young Leaders (Viki, Arend, and Emily).

Brass Monkey Time Again!

It wasn't very promising weather at the weekend of 14-15th February for camping - even at Overstone Scout Campsite!

"Lo and behold" the weather held out offering the Scouts a chance to camp in the colder weather and their parents to enjoy a Valentine's Treat - with children away for that particular weekend!

Pictures show that all the Scouts (and their Leaders) went home just the slightest bit muddy but only in timely advance of some heavy rain - but with dry tents and almost dry Scouts to tell the tale!

Thanks must go the the Leader Team, Lisa, Jay,Lance and Paul for their time in support of the Young Peiple.

Cubs Bingo Night

On Saturday 21st February, the Cubs held a Bingo Night at the Town Band Club.It was supported by 22 adults and 4 children and we had a most entertaining evening of Bingo.

The Bingo Caller was our own Fred Harris (Cub Scout Leader).The event started at 8.00pm with the first 4 games, prizes being set at £5.00 per 'line' and £10.00 for a 'full house'.

After the first 4 games refreshments were served and then we sold the Raffle.We reserved a Bingo game just for the children with the prize being an Easter Egg!

After this we settled down to another 4 games, the final calling was for £30.00.

A sum of £183.50 was raised including the proceeds from the Raffle.

This money will be added to the funds being raised for our CUBJAM 2016 event. Our thanks must go to all who supported us!
