The year of 2016 marks the centenary of Cub Scouts, meaning Cubs all over the UK have been celebrating Cubs100 all year. 38th Rossendale have taken part in a number of celebrations such as the District Thanks Event, a trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach and the County Cubs100 Adventure Camp.

One of the activities promoted for Cubs this year was the Promise Challenge. This was a challenge for Cub packs to renew their promise in the wildest, most exciting and adventurous location possible and share it with other Cubs and Scouters across the UK.

Of course, our two Cub packs always rise to a challenge and decided to use the local area to our advantage and take a trip to space to renew their promise! Okay – not quite outer space, but the Haslingden Halo!

On section nights both Cub Packs braved the dark, cold and mud to hike to the Halo and renew their promise underneath the glow of the sculpture. We think this was a pretty unique place to renew their promise and the hikes were full of fun too!

Well done to both Purple and Grey Packs for well and truly smashing the Promise Challenge for Cubs100!
