The Wildest Birthday Party Ever

Added 03/06/2016 test



Cheshire Cub Scouts have celebrated their 100th birthday with The Wildest Party Ever.

Almost 2,000 people attended a weekend camp at Capesthorne Hall - the home of Cheshire Scouts' President, Sir William Bromley-Davenport - to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Cub section in the Scout movement.

More than 1,300 Cubs were joined by over 500 adult volunteers and leaders for a weekend of fun and excitement.

Activities over the weekend ranged from traditional skills such as knotting and den building, to Frisbee golf and riding an inflatable rodeo bull, plus entertainment on stage and in the main arena.

Chester District volunteer Jane Hughes said: `I love everything about Cubs. The young people are amazing and it is true to say that it changes lives and gives them unforgettable experiences that they wouldn't have had if they weren't involved without Scouting. Having been a volunteer for over 40 years I've seen the effects that scouting has had on so many peoples' lives." 

Cub Imogen from the 2nd Middlewich pack in Mid Cheshire District added: `My favourite thing from the weekend was the disco on Friday night and all the different activities. I wanted to celebrate Cubs100 with all the leaders and other Cubs."

The County's Cubs have a series of activities during the year to mark the centenary and have already attended a regional celebration with an exclusive day out at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
