2017 Craft Compatition

A team of 6 Cubs from Portal Pack recently took part in the annual Chester District Cub Craft Competition which this year was actually hosted by Tarporley.

 The team was William Line, Sebastian Winder, Sam Stanyer, Magnus Raybould, Tom Wood and Ben Scott.

All the teams were given two hours to make a model of a space rocket, produce an invitation to a space party and make models of aliens. The boys worked well as a team to come up with what had been asked for and finished as Runners Up in the competition.

All the boys that took part were awarded their Artist Badge.

Well done to you all.

Burns Night

Ode to a Hagis Quizz 

Last Wednesday saw Portal Pack Cubs celebrating Burns Night as they worked towards their International Activity Badge.

During the evening the Cubs learnt about Robert Burns and listened to some of his poetry.

They took part in a quiz to test their knowledge about Scotland and also had a 'haggis" puddin race and tossed the caber.

 

Rikki then recited the Selkirk grace before the evening was rounded off with the Cubs enjoying haggis, neaps and tatties, Scottish shortbread and caramac which was all washed down by Irn Bru!

Advent Food Bank Challenge - Part 2

Cubs from Portal Pack took on a Foodbank "advent calendar " challenge before Christmas to collect as many items as possible to donate to the Mid Cheshire Foodbank at Winsford. Between the Cubs and Leaders they collected 350 items. They visited the Foodbank this week to deliver what they had collected and to learn about what happens once the items are donated.

 

 

During the evening a volunteer from the Foodbank told the boys about how the items are processed and showed them round the warehouse. The volunteer thanked the Cubs for all their donations which he said would make a great difference to the work they are doing.
