Endeavour Cubs Summer/Autumn 2020

Filed under: Endeavour Cubs — admin @ 7:06 pm

The Summer Term for Endeavour Cubs was like no other in the Pack’s history, but that didn’t stop us, and as promised we just used our imaginations a bit more!  There were loads of activities for the Cubs to do at home, including Bike week, camps at home, athletics, virtual escape rooms, Taskmaster-style challenges, Wallace and Gromit’s Wrong Trousers Day, learning about their pets and how to look after them, as well as learning about nature and keeping track of the changes they notice over several months.  In all if the Cubs managed to squeeze in every activity, they would have completed 9 badges just in that one term, as well as being well on the way to completing several others!

This Autumn Term we’re changing things up a bit and we’re going to try some online meetings with the Cubs.  This is going to be a challenge for us Leaders, probably more so than for the Cubs, but we’re hopeful that the inevitable technical difficulties will be minimal (fingers crossed!).  It’ll be great to see and speak to the Cubs again, even if it is via a computer screen.  We’re going to be focusing on the Skills and World Challenge badges and have lots of fun activities planned, including pioneering and boat building!

Fireworks – 31st October 2015

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 6:36 pm

As the Saturday before Nov 5th is our regular date, and this year it co-incides with Halloween we are increasing the fun by adding a FANCY DRESS COMPETITION to our regular delights.  We have two categories – under 14s, and 15 and over, which definitely includes adults. (BTW, home made costumes preferred.)  We’ll have some decent prizes as well as the option to light a very special firework.

5.30pm for a 6.15pm start.

Adults £5, children £4, under 5s free.  Family (2+2) just £14

And sorry, no sparklers, but plenty of mulled wine, toasted marshmallows, burgers & hot dogs, tuck and our favourite – the tombola!
