The 1st Old Buckenham cub scouts are working towards their Global challenge this term. They have already participated in the Oxfam "Biggest lesson on education for all" and should get into the Guinness Book of records.

During May over twenty of them went to the County Cub Camp held at the Norfolk showground and represented the Bahamas in true Junkanoo-style banners, masks and costumes made out of crepe paper in the blue and yellow colours of the Bahamas flag.

On the Monday evening after the camp, although still tired after their exciting activities of the weekend, they entered into the litter pick in the village with their usual enthusiasm. The scout group is extremely proud of each and everyone one of the cubs for doing their best and duty, knowing the future will be safe in their hands.

Among those attending the County Cub camp was Ellie Martin who has achieved her Silver Scout Award. This is the highest award for a cub scout. It means she has successfully achieved all her challenge badges and was awarded her Personal Challenge Badge by giving outstanding care to the new 8-year old cubs who had just moved up from Beavers. Ellie, who is one of the group sixers, has shown excellent personal skills and achievements taking part in activities ranging from climbing, archery, shooting, go karting, circus skills and much more.
