Falcon Pack at Pets at Home

The Cubs of Falcon Pack were able to visit Pets at Home in Hertford to learn about pet care and begin working towards their Animal Carer badge


First we learnt about what rabbits and guinea pigs like to eat and the fact they eat their own poo!
 
 
Then we felt the different temperatures of water that fish like to live in.
 
 
 
Then we looked at a very shy corn snake!
 

Last of all, we were able to go in with the vet and hear the heart beat of a guinea pig, it is very fast.
 
Many thanks to the staff of Pets at Home for a great visit.

Founder's day 2017

All of the Cubs of Ware & District descended on Amwell View School for the annual activity day for Founder's day.
They were able to take part in lots of activities; dance in the studio, climbing wall, soft play, swimming, a treasure hunt and trying out the instruments that belong to the Braughing Scout & Guide band.
This year they were able to hear about the work of the charity Scope who work with people who have physical disabilities.
The day ended with a short Cub's Own and to give thanks for the life and legacy of our Founder Robert Baden-Powell.
