We held our AGM for 2019-2020 via a virtual meeting due to COVID-19 restrictions.
We are very proud that Mel Bond, who is a Network Scout and Leader in 1st Bedworth, has been awarded The Scouts of the World Award.
The Cubs learnt about the Bedworth Coat of Arms and how it was formed from many parts of the local area.
We also learnt about some of the famous people that were born in Bedworth.
George Elliot (Mary Anne Evans), Pete Doherty and Nick Skelton to name a few!
To bring out their creativity we asked our Cubs to design some posters to show parts of Bedworth and to promote the town, as always the Cubs did fantastic.
See what you think!
I think it’s fair to say our lockdown already this year in Cubs has been nothing less than extraordinary! Especially with the amazing support we have had from the adults of all our Cubs.
This year we kicked our activities into over drive, no more of this lock down pausing and waiting to get on with things… have a look at some of the fantastic things these Cubs have done last month!
With the Artist badge we kicked off with some very creative salt dough creations!
And as is tradition for many, we too cooked some pancakes…
As you can see, these look flipping brilliant!
Come and join us for our Group’s Annual General Meeting which was postponed last year. Anybody is welcome to attend, just get in touch with us to request the meeting details.
…the Astronomers Badge!
We learnt about our Solar System, the planets, satellites, comets, asteroids, stars and much more! Although many of the Cubs had a good understanding of some parts of space, so we got to expand our learning about the Mars Mission with SpaceX and why we have observatories in specific locations. Finishing off the night the Cubs took to the screen and helped to create another picture, again their talents never cease to amaze us!
Well Done Cubs!
Explorers! We have some exciting news – we have the opportunity to take part in an Explorer District Bonfire evening and we can’t wait to see you all there!
…of the animal carers badge!
Each Cub had looked after a pet and learnt how to care for a new animal.
One of the Cubs even managed to convince her dad (with mums help) to get a hamster which was swiftly named ‘Sparkles’! Over the course of the two months, 2 lovely dogs also became family members to two other Cub households.
The virtual meetings and activities finished off with a brain storm for getting a pet Crocodile! And creation of posters promoting Animal Safety… I think you’ll agree with us, they did a fantastic job!
These are some challenging days and it’s the children like you who have led the way in helping to cheer us all up.
Have you been drawing and painting rainbow pictures to spread a bit of hope and cheer at this difficult time?
If so, please send in your brilliant rainbow pictures to [email protected] so we can share them with the group and make a massive rainbow collage to spread the hope message further. If you haven’t already done one, get creative and make one to add to the collage.
