Remembrance Weekend Sleepover

Date: 12th Nov 2017 Author: Scout Websites

Cubs and leaders from both 3rd Banstead packs got together on the Remembrance weekend to cook, sew, clean shoes and litter pick to earn some badges. Many thanks to the parents who came to help with the activities. Everyone also had the chance to abseil. After eating the meal the cubs had prepared, everyone enjoyed singing around a campfire. Hoping the cubs were suitably worn out they were sent to get ready for their sleepover in the main hall. The leaders were pleased to say that the cubs were very quiet all night and had to be woken for breakfast.
After breakfast and packing up their sleeping bags, it was time for marching practice and a reminder of why Remembrance Day was important. The cubs and leaders then marched up to Banstead to take part in the parade. There was a good turnout for the group as a whole despite the cold weather.
