“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.

The first week back started with welcoming all of the Cubs, including the new ones who have moved up from Beavers. Everyone enjoyed playing their favourite games, which was followed by a visit to Finn’s Way where the Cubs looked at the changes to the trees and flowers now that autumn was in full swing. They collected small natural items, which they used for making bookmarks and simple pictures.
The following week, both packs visited the allotments at Victory Park where a number of keen gardeners showed them around. The Cubs learnt about different gardening tools and they had a go at mowing the grass, planting seeds, digging up potatoes and weeding. Everyone had a great evening and the Cubs are looking forward to returning in the spring. This visit counted towards the Cubs’ Gardener badge.
An evening was spent at Go Outdoors, where the staff showed the Cubs what equipment and clothing to take with them on hikes and camps. They were shown the importance of layered clothing and the need for waterproof footwear. They tried on walking boots, tested different rucksacks and competed with each other to see who could be the quickest to stuff a sleeping bag in a sack and to put up a tent.
Terry Webb from the Royal British Legion visited and the Cubs learnt about the work of the charity. The Cubs are now thinking about ways that they can fundraise for the RBL. This all counts toward the 2018 Gloucestershire Poppy badge.
