Our pack has approximately 30 boys and girls aged 8 to 10½. The Pack is organised into smaller groups called Sixes, each headed up by an older Cub called a Sixer, and supported by a Seconder. We expect Sixers and Seconders to help with looking after their sixes and set a good example to all other Cubs.
The team consists of a Cub Scout Leader, Pete – known as Akela, with a number of other leaders, currently we have Matt (Oonai) and Wai (Nushka).
At various times we also have DofE participants and/or Explorer Scouts who take on an additional role as Young Leader, they help with the running of the pack while developing their own leadership skills.
We always welcome, and at times rely on, parents to help, especially during the summer months when we’re out and about.

The Cub Scout Promise
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen
To help other people
And to keep the Cub Scout Law
There are alternative versions of the promise for other religions, humanists and those with no affirmed faith. Speak to Akela for details.
The Cub Scout Law
Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day
