Teddy stretchers!

As part of the Pioneer badge, Falcon Cubs brought their teddy bears along to the Pack meeting and made stretchers to race them around the garden!

We all had a good time and the stretchers mostly survived (well the first race anyway!)

District fun run

The Cubs of Ware & District had their annual fun run at Watersplace farm in Wareside. Lots of Cubs attended on a lovely cool evening and enjoyed the run around the countryside.
Well done to Braughing Cheetah who were the winners of the trophy!
Cubs from 3rd Ware joined in with the fun.

Many thanks to all those Leaders who came to help, it was much appreciated by the Cubs and we hope that you had a good time as well!

Cooking at Cubs

Those Cubs who were not going to Falcon's camp had the chance to light a fire and cook some dampers during the Pack meeting.

Bill showed them how to lay and light the fire and they had a great time cooking.

District go karting competition

The Cubs from all the Packs in Ware had their annual go-karting competition at Chauncy school.
The Cubs all tried their hardest and had a great time, despite the wet weather!

Community Action

Following on from our sponsored walk along the towpath from Hertford to Ware, the Cubs had another evening to finish off their Community Action badge.

Bill-one of our regular helpers showed the Cubs how to filter water to make it clean from mud (although not necessarily safe to drink!)
We filtered it through sand, stones and other things to remove the mud.

At the end of the evening our parents were invited to come and hear about what we have done for our Community Impact badge.
We told them about our walk and how it felt to walk with the water, about the New River and why it was dug and how it still supplies water to London 400 years after it was first built. We showed them about the water filters and how we had made them. Lastly we spoke about the work of Wateraid and how they are working with the Scouts of Madagascar to improve the lives of those that live there.

We have finally counted up the sponsor money that we raised on our walk and we had a grand total of £403 which was quite amazing for one evening!

Many thanks to all those who supported the Cubs and sponsored them. We have sent the money off to Wateraid and are waiting to hear back from them.

For the end of term evening, the Cubs chose to go bowling. They all had a good time and there were some great bowlers!

Bowling is thirsty work!
