Kate Middleton Receives Christmas Presents for Prince George and Princess Charlotte
Dec 16 2016
"The guys have all had a great time and learned so much".
Cub 100 Ambassador Steve Backshall said; "What a wonderful way to end this year of centenary celebrations". It's an evening they will never forget and the most exciting thing that has happened to me in my time as a volunteer."Groups from King's Lynn, Gaywood and Hunstanton were among those represented".
The Cub Scout pack's activities centered around looking after oneself and others, both physically and emotionally. Middleton did some drawing, played a parachute game, decorated a cake and recited the Scout oath alongside the scouts. The Duchess wrote "bonfire building". "It was fun putting her arm in a sling as I was one of the only ones", he told reporters afterward. Cub Scouting was cofounded by Robert Baden-Powell and Vera Barclay on December 16, 1916.
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 life-long friends.
Kate accessorized with a yellow patterned neckerchief one might easily have seen in the Eighties wardrobe of the Late Princess Diana.
The official birthday of the Cub Scouts is on December 16, when thousands of Cubs across the country will be renewing their Cub Scout Promise. Today, there are more than 150,000 Cub Scouts in the United Kingdom, and nearly a quarter are female, 25 years after girls were first welcomed into the Scout Movement.
She added: "Her sense of duty is an inspiration".
Hannah Kentish, the Scout Association's national youth commissioner, said the organisation was continuing to grow, with waiting lists in areas where there are insufficient group leaders.
In January 1914, a pilot programme for younger boys named "Wolf Cubs or Junior Scouts" was launched and 12 months later the section was 10,000 strong.
