Introduction to cubs

Welcome to the cubs section of the website.Cubs is the second section of the Scouting family who are aged between 8 and 10½ years of age. During their time in the cub Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.

How to join cubs

If your child is interested in joining cubs you can either contact us by emailing us or you can pop down to one of our cubs meetings on Mondays 7:00pm - 8:30pm and register your childs interest. if you come to a cubs meeting they will be able to join in straight away with the acitvities we are doing that night also on their first night of cubs you the parents are welcome to stay with us so that your child has a familiar face to go to until they get to know our leaders and the other cubs.(depending on the confidence of your child eg if they are very confident and mixes with the other cubs really well then we would advise the parent not to stay)After their first three weeks which are free we will remind you parents that your child will need to pay £2.00 a week from the next week. when we feel that your child is ready we will ask you to buy your child a cub uniform and necker.

 As this is the group you have joined. after you have bought your childs uniform we will inform you when they are going to be invested (made a full member of our group) which will involve your child saying
the cub scout promise which is either: 


I
promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and (to the Queen/to the country in which I am now living)

And to keep the Cub Scout Law (for christian and or other faiths),

Essential information about cubs subscriptions (subs)

At cubs you pay weekly subs which are £2.00 a week which covers any activities that we do, refreshments and the cost of any badges we need to buy to award the cubs when they complete the work towards them. when you first join cubs your first three weeks subs are Free. this is so that your child can decide weather or not they like cubs and want to become full members.

uniform

Cubs wear a dark green sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a Necker) and a woggle in the colour of their Six.Below is a diagram to show you where the badges need to be sewn onto the uniform
