Birchwood Cubs go a Hiking....
Well done to the ten Cubs from Birchwood Pack who took part in the County Night Hike in September. They joined around 800 Cubs and 80 leaders from packs across Hertfordshire in the 9 mile night hike. In two teams our cubs set off after dinner on Saturday 20 September reading their maps around a route that took in six bases, and took part in activities to complete the Communication activity badge. Most of our cubs made it around the full course, completing the hike in 4 hours and 20 minutes before heading back to the school they were sleeping at, for a very well earned hot drink, biscuits and night's sleep. Chris Holliss, Akela at Birchwood pack said "We are very proud of the cubs who took part, they made a great effort and I was particularly pleased to hear from fellow leaders and passers by how polite they were. For the younger cubs it was also their first night away experience with other cubs. " "A huge well done to the cubs and a big thank you to Michelle Styles (section assistant) and Paul Robbins (parent) who helped throughout the hike. "
The cubs who took part were: Finn Styles, Finn Hayes, Oliver Robbins, Ryan Phillips, Daniel Holliss, Cody Morris, Jason Brewer, Margaret McHale, Alex Smart and Dominic Smith.
