Cubs success at District events

Posted on November 16th, 2017 by Steve McCarthy

Back in April, Thomas, Taine and Fred took on the challenge of our District Cooking Competition. 

They fearlessly managed to cut their casserole vegetables without injury (mostly). Their fruit salad was delicious and they were an amazing team. 

With little cooking  experience; working together carefully following instructions helped them to win and be District champions!

Then later the same term , our creative Cubs made an amazing effort for the autumn District Handicraft Competition. Parents, Leaders and Cubs all worked hard together to transform pasta, wooden spoons and shoe boxes into vampires, mummies, campsites and skeleton fish (and other animals). Our efforts were rewarded by becoming joint first, well done everyone.

Parades, Trophies and Reptiles

Posted on November 12th, 2017 by Steve McCarthy

It has been a busy week at the 3rd.

Wednesday evening at Beavers, was only for the brave, tarantula’s, snakes and more reptiles came to visit one of our youngest sections. Judging by their gleeful faces there was no fear !


Wednesday and Friday saw the Scout section, performing their own remembrance evening by visiting the war memorials around Reading town centre and Caversham.

On Saturday night the 3rd Cubs & Scouts enter the District swimming gala. A fantastic evening was completed with the 3rd heading home with the winners trophies. Well done !! Great effort.


Finally to a sunny & cold Sunday morning, members of all sections joined the Caversham remembrance parade at Caversham War Memorial with young people from many other organisations.    Well done guys for representing the 3rd.
