“I promise that I will do my best; To do my duty to God and to the Queen; To help other people; And to keep the Cub Scout Law” – The Cubs Promise
We run two Cub Packs at Randwick Scout Group – one on a Wednesday evening and one on a Friday evening. Each pack is run by a Leader who is supported by parent helpers. Our Leaders plan and organise a varied and exciting programme of termly activities.
Cubs are encouraged to participate in a range of outdoor pursuits, community activities and exciting experiences. Challenge awards and badges are gained to recognise their achievements, plus they have the opportunity to attend camps and residential trips.

Both packs enjoyed a second robotics session during which the Cubs designed their own robots (some very imaginative ideas were produced) and they learnt about how data is stored in a computer as binary. Wednesday Cubs subsequently finished the Digital Maker badge by creating Lego robots and programming a sequence of movements. It was one of the quietest meetings, with the Cubs totally focused on their robots.
A large number of Cubs and their families visited Forest Green Rovers where they were given a talk about the football club and they then watched Forest Green beat Coventry City 2-1.
The following week, Wednesday Cubs enjoyed a Taekwondo evening – Honour Clutterbuck, one of our YLs, led the session, instructing the Cubs with confidence and enthusiasm. The Cubs had a really good work out and the evening also counted towards the Skills Challenge.
Friday Cubs brought in collections, talked about their hobbies and sports interests and, as a result, they completed either their Hobbies, Collector, Sports Enthusiast or Physical Recreation badges.
Because of the forthcoming pack holiday, Friday’s meeting was switched to Thursday and covered Youth Shaped Scouting. The Cubs led the evening’s activities and they also gave leaders an insight into what they enjoyed most about Scouting and what they wanted to do in the future.
Pack Holiday was held in Northleach, with 34 Cubs in attendance. A very supportive group of leaders and parents ensured that the weekend went smoothly. The Cubs travelled by coach to Bourton-on-the-Water where they visited the Model Village, the Dragonfly Maze and Birdland. During the weekend, the Cubs also completed activities that counted towards the Navigator badge and the Pioneer badge.
Under the threat of no heating, Wednesday Cubs cooked twists and marshmallows over roaring fires. It was an incredibly cold night, demonstrated by the fact that the water in the fire buckets froze!
A downpour of snow meant that Friday Cubs had to be cancelled.
