Video: Grantham cub sections begin a ‘Year of Adventure’ ahead of centenary
Next year will be the cub movement’s 100th birthday, and to prepare for the big occasion 2015 has been designated as the ‘Year of Adventure’.
The Grantham District group has branded its year ‘Cub 100’, during which cubs will be encouraged to try adventurous activities and develop new skills between March and December.
‘Cub 100’ was launched with a joint gathering of the 2nd St Wulfram’s, 7th St John’s and 9th St Anne’s cub sections, where they were challenged with learning four knots tying 25 of each during the evening.
Cub leader Debbi Rogers said: “Sixty-two Cubs along with their leaders and young leaders successfully met the challenge whilst having a fabulous evening getting to know each other or renew previous friendships. The cubs were also joined by the Grantham District commissioner and the Lincolnshire assistant county commissioner for cubs. The evening finished with well deserved hot dogs and Jaffa cakes, and the cubs are looking forward to their next challenge.”
