Letter to the Editor:? "Southport Scouts"
"2016 has been Cubs100, the centenary of the Cub Scout
movement, and I'm lucky and proud to be ambassador for their monumental birthday
party. The 16 December 2016 will be the 100th Birthday and like the Cubs from
Southport, I will be renewing my Cub Scout promise. It's been an incredible year
so far with trips, fundays and camp outs, but the best is yet to come with Cubs
100 Birthday parties taking place across the country. For 100 years Cub Scouts
have been helping in their communities and this year has not been any different.
Through our 'A Million Hands' project Cubs in Southport have been helping to
make their community a better place to live and work. I would also like to shout
out to the volunteers in Southport for their dedication each week to giving Cubs
the chance to experience big adventures and take part in activities that could
be life changing. Volunteers... We salute you! During this special week, I would
just like to say a big happy birthday to cubs past and present as we look
forward to another 100 years of endeavour; learning new skills, having fun and
making lifelong friends. Yours in Scouting..." Steve Backshall, Cubs100
