|Bunting and flags adorned the Warren as it was transformed for the Grey Pack Jubilee party. For the last six weeks the Cubs have been hard at work preparing for the event that had stalls, games, food and lots of fun.The first task all those weeks ago was for each six to design a game that could be|
|used to generate funds at the jubilee party. Using recycled materials as much as possible they then built the games using their DIY skills.The Commonwealth was explored with each six adopting a country they chose by ‘picking from a hat’. Information was gathered from home, school, libraries and the pack meeting before they were developed into presentations.
The Countries/regions selected were: India; West Indies; New Zealand; and South Africa. The last of these being of particular interest as many of the ideas for Scouting came from Baden-Powell’s time spent here. The Cubs seem to really enjoy making costumes, again from recycled materials, reflecting the countries they had adopted.
HM The Queen is an inspirational figure, and truly reflects the Scouting value of ‘doing their best’. The young people explored the Queen’s life and presentations were made to show how Her Majesty inspires the Cubs to do their best.
Cricket is a sport that unites the commonwealth and the Cubs enjoyed spending an evening playing the Kwik version of the game under the guidance of our ever helpful Explorers.
The street party was not only a fantastic opportunity for the Cubs to celebrate the Jubilee but also all their hard work over the last six weeks. Sharing their fruits of their labours with family and friends, £33.70 was also raised for an as yet unnamed charity which the Cubs will select.
All the activities have been designed to contribute towards badge work with DIY badge and sections of the Community, Promise, Creative and Global badges being completed. Badges will be awarded after the half term break and for a couple of our older Cubs this has also resulted in them completing their Chief Scout Silver Award.
Well done to all the Cubs for their fantastic effort over the last six weeks and thank you to everyone who supported our Jubilee party.
