The Great Indoors – contd.

   |   By  |  0 Comments

Following are a list of badges that Cubs can complete. Majority can be done independently and some may require a bit of supervision and assistance.

Feel free to choose from those that you are confidently able to carry out without additional pressure, as we are fully aware of the commitment expected for the school work they also need to complete. Having said that, there are a lot of badge activities/requirements that can be worked alongside school subjects , thus making it cross curricular too!

Good luck and enjoy!

The Great Indoors

The Great Indoors – So scouting life is all about the great outdoors – but sometimes we need some skills on surviving the Great Indoors. Scouts HQ have developed a range of activities to do indoors. Our leaders have also developed some activities that will be specific for each section.

Suspension of sessions

   |   By  |  0 Comments

Asalaamu alaikum,

As we keep abreast of the various developments concerning the Corona virus, our Leaders and Executive Committee  have taken a group decision to postpone all Scouting sessions effective immediately. This includes Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sessions. We will be constantly monitoring the situation nationally, regionally and locally. We have informed the District Commissioner and the St Albans District Scouts of our decision. 

Based on official Government guidelines, as of 16 March 2020, there has been no decision as yet to shut schools etc in Hertfordshire. However, we are aware that many of our children reside with, or have regular contact with elderly relatives who are most vulnerable which is a key factor in our decision. In addition, the nature of our activities means we cannot guarantee ‘social distancing’ (we are dealing with children after all…!) To err on the side of caution, and in the interest of our members’ well-being, we have taken a decision to postpone sessions until further notice.

The Section Leaders and their teams will be working on remote session plans to ensure that the children can still benefit from the planned sessions remotely and these will probably be in the way of some activities that they can do at home quite easily. We will forward these in the next couple of days. 

We have two camps scheduled for later this term – the Cub camp and scout camp – we are liaising with both the district and the camp facilities as to the feasibility of these going ahead. We will keep everyone informed of the decisions as we are made aware of them. 

We pray Allah SWT keeps you all & your families safe during this testing time. Ameen

The Chippy Hike

A traditional scout activity, the chippy hike. The chippy hike gets our cubs out of the hut and explore their local area. Our hike took in a scenic route from our hut at The Marlbrough Pavilion, along the Alban Way and ended up at one of our favourite chip shop at The Camp area of St Albans.
