The service was relayed out to those outside, the speaker was Brendan Cox, his wife Jo was an MP who was murdered by an extremist last year. He spoke about how Scouting has shaped his life and the Great Get Together weekend that he has brought about to get people involved together.
A very special day for everyone that was lucky enough to be there.
And especial congratulations to Dano for achieving his Queen's Scout Award, the first 'home grown' 3rd Ware Queen's Scout since the Senior Scout Troop of 1956!

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.


Chief Scout Silver Award evening 2017

Those Cubs who had achieved the Silver award over the past year gathered together to receive a special Ware & District certificate presented to them by Jagz Bharth, one of the UK Youth Commissioners.

There were seven members of 3rd Ware present at the presentation with a further two more who were unable to make the evening.

Pancake day

Shrove Tuesday saw the Cubs of Falcon Pack cooking and eating pancakes.

The Cubs also learnt the art of washing up after the cooking and eating!

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.

Cubs 100 Promise party

The last centenary event of 2016 was the Promise Party that was held at Harlow Leisurezone. The Cubs were able to take part in a huge roller skating party, during which at 19:16 they re-made their Promise.

Many thanks to all those that made this possible:
The Pack Leaders and Cubs who attended.
Those from the District team who helped out and made it happen.
Harlow Leisurezone staff who helped us with our many queries
Tesco Ware for supplying the food
And the many people who all ensured this once in a lifetime event could take place and we could be a small part of Scouting history



Mr Mulligan's golf

For our last Pack meeting of 2016 the Cubs had a visit to Mr. Mulligans's golf in Stevenage. They tried out both courses of Jungle and Ocean and fnished the evening off with a slush puppie!

Everyone had a good time and it was a great way to end the year!
