Report: Pack meeting – a taste of Diwali

On 18 October 2016 we used our pack meeting to find out all about Diwali.

The Hindu festival of lights takes place this year on 30 October but in large cities across the country the lights have been turned on and there was a special festival in Trafalgar Square on 16 October attended by the Mayor of London.

We had a special guest too as we were pleased to welcome back Phoenix who ran our evening as part of Tesco’s Eat Happy project. The Cubs heard the story of Rama and Sita and found out how Diwali is celebrated. They then had the chance to make some raita dip and taste it with some bread and vegetables.

At the end of the evening we had time for a few games.


Google has changed the way it displays our photos so click on the first one and then the white “i” in the top corner to see our captions in the info window on the right of the screen.

We’re grateful to Phoenix and Pulborough Tesco for providing the resources and materials for the programme
