Climb When Ready 2019


The 12th have been very busy in March

It began with our Teams entering the #climbwhenready competition and Well done 12th Darlington Cubs and Mara our District winner at Climb When Ready 😁

This was followed up with our Scout team with another well done  – this time with Joe winning District best climber and a 4th place overall in Climb When Ready Comp. Also big shout out to Issy coming 5th overall. All 5 climbers did great – very proud leaders.

Cubs End of Term

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

Water Water Everywhere

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.”
