Well done to those cubs and scouts who took part in the Gang Show on

was very effective. Josh you made an excellent Alien . One question did any
body take a photograph so that we may put one on the web site!
District Football Competition
WELL DONE to the team who played the football on Saturday 13th March.
They did really well and WON the event!! Baloo said that a special mention
needs to be made to Josh - who should be man of the match, although
Nicholas says he should be man of the tournament.
Joseph Simmonds - well done for being very scouting and playing for the 1st Andover.
The Fitness Challenge
One of our Scouts has been busy for sometime working on his fitness challenge and has done a lovely write up about it for the website, it is well worth a read for anyone thinking of doing this badge. To see it click here, or on the Fitness Challenge badge above.
Some of our Scouts
What are the Scouts up to?
Here is what one of them wrote for us.
Community challenge badge I have had to do 6 hours of voluntary work in my local community. I have done this by helping at Cubs.
Some activities I have helped run are preparation for the night hike; I walked the route with another Scout, to check that the instructions could be clearly followed,
I helped out with the paper plane challenge by showing a couple of Cubs how to make a certain design which is called the classic dart, and even got time to fly my plane a couple of times.
Other things that I do to help are to carry out inspection, even out the numbers in team games, get things from the shop which we need i.e. the candles for the Christmas decorations, & sometimes I run ‘bases’, such as a recycling base.
I think it is useful for the Cubs to have contact with Scouts from the group as that way, when they go up to Scouts, they already know someone.
