Cubs hit the city for big fun

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - More than 50 kids turned up to the end-of-term disco at the Scout hall.

Dur­ing the past few months, Sey­mour Cub Scouts has been very busy.

Re­cently the Cubs went to Mel­bourne to en­joy an ad­ven­tur­ous day, start­ing with a train trip in to the city.

Then the Cubs were given a list of trea­sure they had to find as we walked to Swanston St.

Cubs had to point out any items they found to a Scout leader or adult helper be­fore they could be ticked off.

The trea­sure items var­ied from a Vic­to­rian crest to a lady in a yel­low dress.

Af­ter check­ing out some graf­fiti lanes, we had lunch at the play­ground be­tween Fed­er­a­tion Square and the Yarra River.

Next it was on to a tram for a ride to St Kilda so that we could have a few rides at Luna Park.

Then we went to St Kilda beach for a play, and ate cakes pur­chased from Acland St.

We all piled back on to a tram to catch a train back to Sey­mour. But, we still weren’t done. La Porchetta then hosted us as we wrapped up a mas­sive day with piz­zas.

The in­tent was to have tired kids by this stage, but they were still full of beans and the lead­ers were flag­ging.

An­other re­cent high­light was a Sey­mour chil­dren’s disco, which was the first to be held in the Scout Hall for a few years.

This event was ad­ver­tised through the school and 54 kids turned up on the last Fri­day be­fore the hol­i­days.

It was a suc­cess­ful event, with every­one hav­ing a lot of fun.

It is the in­tent of the Cub Scout lead­ers to run one of th­ese at or near the end of each term.

It’s great for the kids to get out and be ac­tive and it’s a good fundraiser for the Cubs.

Keep an eye out for the next one in term three.

That wraps up a great term.

Well done to the Cubs on all they achieved this term, and thanks to all the adult helpers that con­trib­uted through the term.
