Woking District Cub Sports Evening

On 24th February a group of 12 Cubs from 1st Brookwood took part in the Woking District Cub Sports Evening at Woking Leisure Centre. The Cubs were able to have a play in the soft play area, do some football and volleyball, take instruction on self defence and have fun trampolining. The evening concluded with the various Cub packs from the district having exclusive use of the Leisure Lagoon at the Pool in the Park. A great night was had by all.

Celebrating Chinese New Year 2018

To celebrate this event and work towards the Cubs International activity badge, the Cubs all played some traditional Chinese games, learnt counting and some phrases, created wonderful symbols and sampled delicious food.  We were very grateful to Chop Suey House in Knaphill for the kind donation of the scrummy spring rolls and enough fortune cookies for the entire group.

Fire safety and tin can pancakes

Who knew you can use those old soup tins and a tea light to make yummy pancakes… An informative and exciting evening in which the Cubs learnt more about fire safety, including how to create an evacuation plan for their home use, and then constructed a nifty way to make pancakes in an unusual manner.  We love backwoods cooking!

 

Bowling night

In early February each of the 3 sections enjoyed a night of bowling at a local bowling alley with mixed teams of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts taking part together. Everyone had lots of fun and are looking forward to the next group activity.

Burns Night

At the Burns Night meeting in January, our Cubs helped prepare Haggis, Neeps and Tatties, made Cranachan, read some of Burns’ poetry and took part in some traditional Scottish pastimes.  

Annual pack quiz

Earlier this year the Cubs teams showed great teamwork and general knowledge on a range of topics including science, books and drawing emoji!  Congratulations to the winning team who each received a certificate, and well done to all who took part – some amazing knowledge all round!

Swimming up and leader investiture

This January a number of Beavers took part in the ‘swimming up’ ceremony to become part of the 1st Brookwood Cub pack, now that they are 8 years old. 

Also on the same evening one of the volunteers was invested as a uniformed leader. Without such volunteers taking on the role and all the associated training the group would not survive so we are very grateful to all our leaders and young leaders too.

Reptiles evening

One Friday evening, each of the 1st Brookwood sections enjoyed getting up close and cuddly with a variety of reptiles provided by a local reptile expert from Pentangle Aquatics.
