Hazards were everywhere tonight at Cubs! Well “safe hazards” 🙂
We started off the evening with each Six given a topic to think about and make some notes on – causes of, what could be affected by and how they could be avoided. The topics were a burst water pipe, gas leak, electricity failure and fire!

Thanks to herculean efforts by the Beavers, they managed to raise a very worthy £146.00 from a Sponsored Litter / Conker / Leaf Picking evening last term.

What a fabulous amount to raise xx
