We are aware of increasing problems with messages being sent to PlusNet email addresses
This is a problem that is outside of our control, and is a PlusNet issue that is well documented in forum posts here and here.

Our webmaster has tried to contact PlusNet about the problem but, because we are not a PlusNet customer, they will not even speak to him. If any PlusNet customers would be prepared to raise a case on our behalf, please contact the Webmaster.

The issue means that messages to PlusNet customers may not be received and so we recommend using an alternative, non PlusNet, email address on the website

What is Cub Scouting?

Cubs

To be a Cub Scout, you must be aged between 8 and 10 and a half years of age. You will join a group of boys & girls who meet in a Scout Groups Headquarters where you will work & play in teams called "Sixes". When you meet together, it is called a pack meeting. All Cubs wear a uniform and the evenings are organised  by leaders and parent helpers.

There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities such as outdoor and fitness challenges, swimming, music, exploring, computing and creative collecting. If you do them really well (the best that you can do), you can earn badges which you can wear on your uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.

How do I join Cub Scouts?

Cubs

If you are not already involved in Cubs and would like to take part in the fun of Scouting either as a Cub Scout, or as an adult Leader or helper, please feel free to contact the Assistant County Commissioner (ACC) for the Cubs section, who will be pleased to give you details of Pack near you.

If she doesn't know all the answers she will know someone who does!

The ACC (Cubs) can be contacted by using the Contact form on the website
