Section Support for Cub Scouts

acc-cubsHello and welcome to the support pages for Cub Scouts in West Yorkshire, from your Assistant County Commissioner Cub Scouts, Wendy Gill.

Below is some information about Cub Scouts in West Yorkshire, if I can be of any help please don’t hesitate to contact me or any of the Assistant District Commissioners for Cub Scouts who are in your local area.



Thoughts from Wendy

Welcome back from you summer break (if you managed one!)  I trust you all had an enjoyable summer.

What next I hear you say for cubs 100 ?

Well Districts are planning their own District Promise parties on the 16th December 2016. If any District has sorted out their party please let me know so that we can try and visit as many as possible over the evening. Districts are planning trips so far I have heard of York, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Blackpool again if you are planning any district trips please let me know as I would love to come with you(if I am free and if I am invited).

I have various banners and bunting if anyone wants to borrow them for any events they are having.

There is still the region necker to be unveiled. We are looking at a possible event at Middlesbrough Football Club once the season starts and as soon as I have any further information I will let you know

Diary Dates
