On 19 July 2016 we took our pack meeting to Nowhurst to celebrate the end of the Summer Term.
It was one of the hottest days of the year but pleasantly cool under the Nowhurst trees. We had a busy programme of activities to fit in.
We started by collecting wood for the fire which was lit by Mike and John while the Cubs had a wide game in the woods. Then we made a special presentation to Raksha who was celebrating 40 years as a 1st Billingshurst leader. After that we asked our Group Scout Leader, Glyn, to invest Keego as an Assistant Cub Leader. After some more photos and toasted marshmallows we were almost out of time but just squeezed in some camp fire songs and presented the badges earned at the sailing taster.
As usual we were pleased to be joined by so many family members and friends of the pack.
Raksha – 40 years
In 2016 Phyllis Gravett, Raksha, received her 40 years service award. This represented an amazing commitment to 1st Billingshurst where she helped with both Dauxwood and Parbrook Cub packs and to Petworth & Pulborough District where she was badge secretary. Jacala has only known Raksha for the 10 years he has been at Parbrook but we looked back through our archives to see her in action
