“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.

During the first week of November, the Cubs learnt about the men of Randwick who served in WW1. They also found out about how poppies are made at the Royal British Legion’s factory in Richmond. Haggis gave a presentation to Wednesday Cubs about his visit to the War Memorials in France and Belgium.
There was an excellent attendance at the Remembrance Day Service. The Cubs remembered the men of Randwick who died in WW1 and laid poppy crosses to represent each fallen soldier on the grave of Private Edward Smith, who died on 6th October 1916.
To complete the poppy badge, a fundraising evening was held during which the Cubs paid to attend in non-uniform. They chose what games they wanted to play. At the end of the meeting, they took home a tube of Smarties that they are going to fill with loose change. All funds raised will go to the RBL.
For the last two weeks of the month, the Cubs have learnt about Judaism and about Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Light. They made dreidels (spinners) and played with them and they sang the dreidel song. They also ate latkes (potato cakes) and doughnuts, both of which are eaten as part of Hanukkah celebrations.
