OVER 2500 NOTTS CUB SCOUTS CELEBRATE 100 YEARS OF ADVENTURE

Friday 16 December 2016: Cub Scouts and volunteers from Nottinghamshire will celebrate 100 years of adventure this evening, with a Cubs 100 Promise Party. The Parties taking place on 16th December exactly 100 years from when the section was launched. At 19.16pm the Nottinghamshire Cub Scouts will join with 150,000 others around the UK in renewing their Cub Scout Promise, pledging to do their best and help other people.

The young people plan to have an amazing time at parties throughout Nottinghamshire, some choosing to celebrate with their Pack and families, whilst others party in their village or local community.

The largest gatherings will see hundreds of Cubs celebrating at some of Nottinghamshire’s most recognisable locations, including The Major Oak in Sherwood Forest (250), Nottingham Castle (200) with the Lord Mayor, Train Ride from Rushcliffe Country Park (300), Party at Hucknall Leisure Centre (150) and the Southwell Minster (100).

In addition 200 Cubs will take over the lanes of Tenpin Nottingham, 100 are having a cinema and disco, while another 200 will light Centenary Beacons in Retford and Shireoaks.

Josie, 9 from Nottinghamshire said, “Our Cubs 100 Promise Party was brilliant, we had an early party. I’ve had some amazing adventures with Cub Scouts, it’s awesome! Being a Cub Scout is all about doing your best and I try to do this every day”

Dan Wood ACC Cub Scouts said, “I’ve had some great times volunteering as a Scout Volunteer and I can’t recommend it highly enough. I volunteered to help develop young people but I stayed because it’s great fun. It’s been a real privilege being part of the extraordinary Cubs100 year, our volunteer leaders and parent helpers have pulled out all the stops to deliver an incredible year of adventure!”

Chief Scout Bear Grylls commented, “I am super proud to see so many young people renewing their Cub Scout Promise to do their best and help other people. I am excited to see Scout numbers continue to rise across the UK and the big reasons for this are the adventures made possible by the amazing volunteers. Whether it’s the opportunity to be involved with some incredible adventures, learn practical life, outdoor and teamwork skills, or helping to improve their local communities Scouts and Volunteers have a brilliant time!”

Scouting is shaped by young people in partnership with adults and we are always looking for new volunteers if you fancy a go in Nottinghamshire why not join the adventure at www.scouts.org.uk/join or call 01159523617.
