SATURDAY, January 21, saw more than 80 Cub Scouts converge on PADSAC to gain one of six Activity Badges. These included Map Reading, Chef, DIY, Emergency Aid, Cyclist and IT.

Two halls were used to accommodate the youngsters and 20 leaders and helpers ran the six bases, to ensure safety was in place.

The cyclists learned about bike maintenance and road safety before going on a ride to complete their badge.

The DIY Cubs learnt how to safely use saws, drills and screwdrivers before producing a Bird Box.

The Map Readers learnt how to use a map and then navigated a short route around the area. Emergency Aid taught the dangers around the house, what to do at the scene of an accident, how to open an airway, treat minor cuts and bruises and much more.

Smells of cooking emanated from the kitchen, with scones and other delicious items being cooked.

IT saw the cubs learn about the parts of a PC, produce a poster and picture, learn about Internet safety and more.

Visit the district website for photos of the Cubs in action, and organisers say thanks to all the adult helpers.

The next District event is the Scouts Cooking Competition on Saturday, January 28.

Anyone, child or adult, who would like to join the fun, go to or visit
