The 14th Highfield Cub Scout Group is celebrating its centenary. Although Cub Scouting officially launched in 1916, records along with an original flag show that the 14th Highfield Wolf Cub Pack was formed as an experimental section two years earlier, on 30th January 1914.
In order to help mark the centenary, we will be compiling a book of memories from past and present cubs along with items to be place in a time capsule to be buried on the 6th July. We ask the wider community to share any memories or experiences that they have had as a part of the 14th by visiting the ‘Cubs – Centenary celebrations’ tab.
It’s been a busy year for our Cubs. Have a look at what they got up to…
The troop headed off to Switzerland for a 10 day adventure. Rather than say any more about it here, just watch this video to see what it was all about – make sure you have sound!
Watch this video and count the number of times “woooh”, “wow”, “this is fun”, “great fun” is said – and that’s only from 1.5 minutes of footage! Turn your sound up!
Congratulations to the six scouts who built and raced a raft to victory in Southampton’s annual district raft race competition.
Some of the older scouts went to Wye Valley for the district camp – it was a fantastic weekend with lots of activities. Check out the video to see what we got up to:
HUGE congratulations to our two cubs who both came runners up in the district chess competition!! They both did fantastically.
Congratulations to all of the Cubs who played in the Cub football! The effort, enthusiasm and team-work shown by the Cubs were brilliant, and they were an absolute credit to themselves, and to the group.
The rock-solid defence and outstanding goalkeeping from meant that we only conceded 2 goals throughout the whole tournament. In the final, we met the fist team that we had played against, and it went right down to the wire in extra time. We were pleased to become runners up
District Cross Country
Ccongratulations to our cubs for their fantastic running in the district cross-country event.
In the over 9.5 age event, we came 1st and very close behind in 3rd. In the under 9.5 age event we came through in 2nd place.
This was a fantastic effort given the freezing weather and the tough terrain the Cubs were running on. Very well done to all of them!
