Portal Pack


A team of 6 Cubs from Portal Pack, Sebastian, Magnus, Freddie, Tom, George and Eli took part in this year's Chester District Craft Competition. Over 2 hours the team had to make a model of a pirate ship, design a poster advertising the Chamboree camp being held this year and design t shirts to wear at the camp with a pirate theme. Marks were awarded for team working, behaviour, tidiness and the work that was produced.

As Winners, the Cubs now go on to represent the District at the County Final.

Well done Cubs!

Cubs from Portal Pack visited the Mid Cheshire Foodbank at Winsford to deliver their collection of items to help needy families over the Christmas period. They learned about what happens once the items are donated. They recieved a Certificate to mark their efforts.

Members of 1st Tarporley Scouts say thank you to Mark, Manager of Co-op Tarporley and all of the Tarporley Co-op members for their donation raised from the 5p carrier bag charge and 1% of own branded product sales over the last six months. We were delighted to receive over £2,500 which will help fund scouting in Tarporley, including keeping our new (second hand) minibus on the road and the upkeep of the Scout Hut.

Last week 22 boys from Portal Pack Cubs visited The Boardroom Climbing Centre at Pentre. The boys were looked after by a fantastic team of 4 instructors led by Freddie during their hour and a half at the centre.

They enjoyed some games to get them warmed up followed by some time spent bouldering and finally there were all fitted with harnesses and did some climbing tackling a variety of different climbing walls. A great evening was had by all, well done to all the boys for giving it a good try and to The Boardroom staff.
