Speaking about some of the terms’s activities, assistant cub scout leader Karen Whent ***CORR*** said: “The cubs made helicopter name badges using shrinkles, it was great to see their faces as their masterpieces were cooked in oven, twisting and rolling until they shrunk down into badges.
“We had flying competitions with their own paper aircraft-in yellow, of course.
“And to finish off, each cub iced cakes ready for a well deserved break.”
They have so far raised £80.
