Report: End of Summer term 2017

We always like to end our summer term in style so on 25 July 2017 the Cubs, leaders and parents enjoyed an evening at Nowhurst Camp Site.

We started off with an investiture and asked the District Commissioner to present some awards (before we presented her with a surprise). Then it was over to the camp fire for some songs including some led by the three Cubs that were leaving us to go to Scouts. We ended the evening with marshmallows on sticks that Mike had prepared during the evening.

We were delighted to see such a good attendance from Cubs and their families. Cubs is not just kids stuff – there is challenge and adventure for adults too so if you are a Cub parent who enjoyed the evening why not come along to one of our camps or expeditions?

Jacala – 30 years
During the presentations the District Commissioner caught Jacala unawares as he thought that HQ had delayed presentation of his award to mark 30 years of service as a leader. We aren’t sure how but Kath had managed to find one which was a lovely surprise.
Nick was Assistant Cub Leader at 2nd Bracknell from 1985 to 1993 and then Cub Leader from 1998 to 2006 when he moved to Sussex. He joined us in November 2006 before becoming the leader in 2008. In 2012 he stepped back to become Assistant Cub Leader again. He also ran Cubs at Stubbington House boarding school (in Ascot) in the early 1990s and 1st Wood End Cub pack in North Warwickshire from 1994 to 1997.
2nd Bracknell nominated Nick for the award of merit and then surprised him by turning up at a camp at Nowhurst in 2013 to present it.
