Piece of cake as cubs mark Scout centenaryLeader’s
Cub Scouts in Burnside marked the centenary year of the cubs section being launched by the Scouts with a very special celebration.
The 113th Cubs, based in the Crawford Road Scout Hall in Burnside, held a thank you evening for parents and supporters of their group as a way of recognising the 100 year anniversary.
Cubs, with just a little help, set out the hall, laid tables, worked in the kitchen and produced a tasty Friday night treat of cakes and scones for over 50 guests.
Split into teams, the cubs also served refreshments and food and then helped to clear away and wash up, demonstrating their selfreliance in all aspects of hosting and catering.
The youngsters also sold raffle tickets on the evening, raising over £120 towards the cost of their trip to the Auchengillan Camp - where Cubs from across Scotland will celebrate the centenary year in May - and their outing to see the premiere of the Jungle Book on April 16.
A particularly special film for the Scouts organisation, the Cub Scout programme was originally formed around the story of The Jungle Book written by Rudyard Kipling.
Cub Scout leaders traditionally took the names of jungle book characters and the programme was designed to help develop young people to become active citizens in their community.
Cub Scout leader Michelle McKenzie said: “The cubs were amazing.
“They just took control of everything, working in their teams of six they each took on different tasks and responsibilities.
“Team work and team leadership shone through.
“I’m so proud of them all.”
