8L on the County Cub Night Hike

It was Cub Night Hike 2015a really long and tiring walk but also really fun! I did 6 check points and got a glow band. It was dark but I was with my friend Nihal, so wasn’t scared.

Hall Clean Up!

Thanks to everyone who came along this morning to help blitz the inside of the hall (plus Mike de-mossing the roof!). We had committee members, leaders, parents and young people from all three sections turn out to help scrub the hall top to bottom – with such a lot of helpers it was all done in three and a half hours and is now sparkling and for a short time smells pretty good!

They all had plenty of water on board as the day was forecast to be extremely hot.
