Investing in the future of the 12th Ilford Cubs

By Jason Levy

IT was great to finish off the end of the school year, by welcoming three new cubs. Zack Peston, Eden Birt and Max Bluman were all invested at our last meeting in front of their proud families.

They may look a bit soggy in the picture and that’s because they had just come back inside from a water fight. If you think they look wet, you should have seen leader Michael Mallach… but sadly no pictures are available.

We have three more cubs to invest when we return from the summer break and more to come in October too.

Akela Howard Temple said: “This is a very exciting time for the 12th Ilford. After being closed during the Covid pandemic, we are now able to meet weekly again. Last week we visited Hainault fire station and the cubs all got to sit in the fire engines and take turns learning how to use the equipment. This visit was part of their fire safety badge.”

We have cubs on our waiting list who are in school year two, who will be ready to join us when they reach seven and a half years old. We meet every Thursday in term time from 7-8pm at the Redbridge Scout Hut.

If your child is over seven and a half (school years two, three, four or five), and interested in joining, or is aged seven and wants to join our waiting list, please email to register your interest and get more details.
