District Cubs centenary celebrations
Five lucky cubs, Lily J, Emily M, Katie L, Sophie H and Isobel G, accompanied their Akela to the District Cubs 100 year birthday party on 16th December. Held at The Pioneer Club in St. Albans, it was attended by over 300 cubs and their leaders. Entertainment was provided by Mr Marvel, who enlisted the help of Isabel and Akela, inviting them on stage to assist with his magic tricks!
The party marked 100 years of Cubs, and was one of many similar parties held by scouting groups across the country. At 6.16pm - the exact time the first cubs took their promise 100 years ago - all the cubs present at the party renewed their cub scout promise, led by St. Albans District Commissioner Annette Payne.
