LONDON ADVENTURE

Saturday 17th September 2016

971 Cubs and adult volunteers from across the County are heading off on their very own London adventure

20 coachloads of Cubs, many of whom have never been to the capital City, left Nottingham just before sunrise for a fun-filled day of exploration, adventure and discovery.

Whilst in London the Cubs will get to grips with science at the Science Museum and walk with dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum. They will try out experiments that create explosions, bubbles and electric shocks. They will also become Dino-Explorers as they hunt for fossils and explore many of our world's natural wonders

At lunchtime the Cubs will join together for a giant picnic in Hyde Park where they will also hunt for famous London landmarks, play games, take selfies and make new friends

Dan Wood, ACC Cubs, said "The idea for this adventure was suggested by a group of Cubs almost 2 years ago. I'm so proud that we have been able to work together to deliver exactly what the young people wanted and, of course, none of this would have been possible without the 200 adults who volunteered to join the adventure too"

Lizzie, a 9-year-old Cub said "This year has been amazing. I've had so muuch fun celebrating 100 years of Cubs with my friends. I've never been to London before and I'm so excited. I just hope I wake up early enough to get on the coach!"

Franko, a parent, said "I couldn't help but put my hand in the air to help with this trip. The Cub leaders are brilliant. They give up their time to volunteer. I see them having so much fun and making a real difference to the lives of children and young people, it's inspiring! The change in my son since he joiined the Cubs is amazing, he's more confident, can work things out for himself better, make friends more easily and has a real sense of ambition."

Cubs100 will culminate in December when all 2500 Nottinghamshire Cubs will be part of the biggest party ever as they join others from around the UK in celebrating their official birthday. It will be 100 years to the day that Cub Scouting began. A fitting end to an awesome year of fun, friendship and adventure.
