AGM Report for 2014/15

We held our summer camp at Youlbury last year.  We were lucky in having really good weather and were able to do all the activities we had booked.  Youlbury had upgraded their toilet blocks since our last visit and the facilities were very nice and much appreciated.

We took part in the District Chess competition and were a very creditable 4th.  We also took part in the District Swimming Gala and were the winning Cub team which was a great result.

During the past year we have had several outings including B&Q, the Sikh Temple, Laser Quest and the Mayors Parlour.  We have also been to Lydiard Park to play games and to the Canal for some fire lighting.  Among the badges we have worked on are Athletes, Communicators, Collectors, IT and Disability Awareness.  The last one being one of the newer badges that Cubs are now able to earn.

In September we will start using the new Cub program that was recently introduced.  If you look at Cub Scout badges on the internet you will see the amount of changes that we will be dealing with.  It will be a challenging time dealing with the change over and getting used to the new badges. There are several new badges being introduced and I am sure it will only help build an even better program for us than we have had.

In May this year we visited the Imperial War Museum and slept on HMS BELFAST.  When we booked this stay we hadn’t really it was the VE commemoration weekend, but it worked well and the highlight of the weekend for me was have the fly past, which included the Red Arrow, go overhead as we were about two thirds way round the London Eye. We also missed JOTT by going to London on 9/10 May, but 4 of our Cubs took the opportunity to join Apache cubs and were able to earn the badge – thank you Jo.  By coincidence the Cubs in London walked almost exactly the same distance over the 2 days that the Cubs on JOTT walked on the Saturday. The wonders of technology – thanks James.

We are really pleased that we now have a new Leader with our team.  James (Baloo) is a welcome addition to our pack and brings lots of ideas and enthusiasm with him.  Fraser has also joined us for 6 months as he works towards his Duke of Edinburgh Award – it is always good to welcome one of our Cubs back to the pack to work alongside us and Fraser is doing a great job.

As always, I must thank our pack Leaders who give so much time to help with the smooth running of the pack. I would also like to mention the parents who have stepped forward to help when we have needed an extra pair of hands; we really appreciate the time you give.
