Pack and Six News

Last updated August 2018

We have an excellent leadership team, who have all worked hard this term to make the Pack a success - thank you to our adults: Becca (Akela), Alastair (Bagheera), Gary (Chil), Tracy (Mor), Allan (Mang), Sara (Baloo), Lisa (Shere Khan), Rob (Hathi) and Paul (Kaa); and our young leaders: Jon (Wolf) and Matt (Fox). We have now said goodbye to Rob and Paul but we hope to see them back in seven years when the little boy they are adopting is old enough to be a Cub! In September we look forward to welcoming back Jake (Lobster) as a young leader and also Hannah (Cuttlefish) who has been a young leader before but took a break during exams.

New Cubs / Moving On
We had three Cubs join us from Beavers in April: Aiden, Joseph C and Ollie. In September we will be welcoming Daniel, Thomas and Finley from Cherwell Beavers and also Sebastion who is new to Scouting.

We've said a sad goodbye to James D, Benedict and Tom W who are all off to Sea Scouts. We've also said goodbye to Ben, who is transferring over to Mowgli Cubs so that he can train with Oxford United on a Thursday evening.

We currently have five Sixes - Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and White.

For the Autumn term we are promoting two of our Cubs to Senior Sixer roles: congratulations to Bethany and Philip. We have five Cubs becoming Sixers: Jack S, Joseph P, Finn, Tom B and Wilf. We also have five Cubs being promoted to Seconder: George, James L, Joe L, Lewis and Megan.

We are also moving a few of our Cubs around - full details of Sixes, together with Cub photos, can be found on our Sixes page.

Our Sixers and Seconders are expected to set an example to the younger Cub Scouts and we're sure they will do a great job - we only select Cubs we feel are ready for the role. If they do not demonstrate an understanding of this, these roles will be taken away!
