Relay teams from Birchwood and Wolf went up against each other in the final of the relay. Wolf - Katie, Joshua and Christian & Birchwood Megan, Daniel and Dylan, 3rd with the Cubs coming 4th overall in the District Cub competition. Both Scouts teams qualified for the final relay, Ellie, Ella and Travis Relay team came 2nd Ben, Conor and Paul came 5th and Scouts under 12s 2nd. Sandridge were the overall winners.
We were hugely proud of the strong, accomplished performance from our ever growing group. They gave it their all and did the group proud, even newly invested cubs such as Christian Georgiou who represented his pack well despite not even being invested yet at the time of the gala.
Well done to all the Cubs and Scouts who took part – let’s go for the trophy next year!
