Money that you earnt us during the April to June 2016 quarter has now been paid into our funds. We’re really grateful to all that support us this way – you raised another £137 in the quarter. See our fundraising page for more information and how to sign up.
We’re on our summer break. Have a great holiday and we’ll see you when Cubs resumes on Tuesday 6 September.
Reports from past events
We have now caught up with the reports from past events so you can now see new additions from our Nowhurst camp, sailing taster, end of term at Nowhurst and of course Sussex100. Click on the “reports” link at the top of the page to see them.
Google has changed the way it displays our photos. Click on the photo album icon on our reports pages to take you to the gallery. You’ll then see a map and all the photos displayed. Click on a photo and then in the top right of the screen a white “i” to open the info window which includes our captions. You can then scroll through the photos with the arrow keys or by clicking on the arrows at left and right of the screen.
Each of the Cubs received a Sussex100 badge (designed by Kagan from 3rd Bexhill). Unusually, this can be worn on your uniform. If you aren’t already wearing a Cubs 100th birhday badge then it goes above your joining in (year star) badges in the space marked “occasional badges” on the diagram. If that space is already full then it goes at the cuff end of the arm that has your District & County badges on it. In either case the badge must be removed at the end of the year.
Do you have the skills?
The Skills challenge has a number of skills that are best demonstrated at home. If you are looking for some badgework to do during the holidays then download our home skills sheet, demonstrate the skills and get them signed off. We’ll do the paperwork if you bring a signed sheet in to Cubs in September.
September camp – now booking
Our weekend camp in September has a Brazil theme but despite that will be held at Stedham in the South Downs. It is now open for booking – see the Brazil weekend camp page for more details and the Groupspaces link.
Be a fundraising hero at Caffe Nero
The people at Easyfundraising have introduced another way to raise money. Just register your credit or debit card on the EF site and when you use it at certain retailers, including Caffe Nero, Officers Club and Blue inc you’ll earn us commission. So easy, why not?
Sadly at the end of term we still have that one Cub that hasn’t paid their Subs for the term. It is irritating as we still have to pay the group on their behalf. That’s why we are grateful to the majority of the Cubs for paying so promptly. From next term we’ll only offer the Parbrook Cashback discount to Subs that are paid by half term (unless you join after half term of course).
Remember that all of these amounts have been discounted by our Parbrook Cashback which uses money raised through our Painless fundraising when our supporters shop online. If you are not yet supporting us through Easyfundraising please see our fundraising page for more information and sign up. Remember that the money you raise stays with Parbrook Cubs where we use it as Parbrook Cashback to discount our trips and camp costs.
Arriving at the hall
We try to provide a Cub leader at the hall by at least 6.15pm. However, the Beaver leaders have asked that Cubs arriving early wait outside the hall until their meeting has finished. Please note that in the gap between Cubs and Beavers, you need to remain responsible for your children – we cannot expect the Beaver leaders to look after them as they are clearing up the hall in preparation for our meeting. For child protection reasons, it is not acceptable to leave one Cub with a leader in the hall on their own so please stay with yours until another adult arrives.
