It goes without saying it’s been a busy finish to the end of the year at 12th Darlington Cubs. We had a joint night with our Beaver section playing games and doing puzzles to allow both sections to get to know each other better.
We joined our Beavers and Scouts at the remembrance day service at our local church, Elm Ridge, where I’m glad to say so many 12th Darlington Beavers, Cubs and Scouts turned up it was standing room only. The other nights in our Scout HQ were spent problem solving, paracord bracelet making, playing team games and physical education working towards various parts of challenge badges.
To finish the year in the next couple of weeks we have a Xmas party, a pantomime (oh yes we do!) and a Saturday morning hike.
Merry Christmas everyone and Best Wishes for 2019
Every other year I invite parents to bring along an experiment of their choice to showcase to the beavers. This year we had 6 dads, 1 grandad and 1 mum. The beavers moved from table to table while the adult helpers explained the hands on experiments. From this we have gained an occasional helper. Yes! Badge work completed, forms for adult appointments completed and a chance for the leaders to chill out and wander around getting to know the young people.

Well done today to all Cubs and Scouts who turned out to dish out over 3000 bottles of water and clear up afterwards. We ran 2 stations at High Row and Abbey Rd and I was told by several runners and the organisers what an awesome job was done by all. Credit to Scouting
Message from Wendy Littlewood (10k Organising team)
“Please pass on a massive well done and thanks to the Darlington Scouts, cubs and beavers who were a fantastic help at the Darlington 10k today.
I was so delighted to see them expertly manning the water station on the route and also at the end.
They were excellent and made the run even more special for me and each and every runner.
A real credit to scouting.”
