Cubs Swimming Gala – 17 October

Monday, October 6th, 2008

Hi Everyone. What is it with this term…stuff never seems to stop happening!! Please see attached details of Cubs district swimming gala from Sara H:

Last year’s cub swimming gala was fantastic, with 3HH putting in a fine team performance. Looking for keen swimmers of all ages and abilities to take part.

There are races for two ages groups, with width and length distance. We need a lot of cubs to be able to take part in every race so please join in. (We had 7 cubs last year which meant we missed a race, and some cubs had to make super human efforts in several races. 10 would be better, and more fantastic). There are heats then finals which makes a minimum of 13 races – last year it was 19 !

We’re also seeking parents to help on the evening – Fiona (poolside champion in charge last year) has kindly agreed to run the evening, but she will need help. Salim (our secret parental swimming expert) has also offered coaching if anyone would like this, and can find a venue.

Attached details for your information. I am happy to co-ordinate, with Fiona in charge on the night. Do please let us know as early as possible so I can reply on Friday 10th with our entry. Details of preferred distance and stroke appreciated.

Many thanks Sara

Ian Goddard Challenge

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

20080927 Ian Goddard Challenge The annual Ian Goddard Challenge for cubs was this year held at the Stockyard, Bushy Park. Despite the fog looking a bit weird at times, everyone had a fabulous time!

Overall it wasn’t our finest result in the final rankings, but well done to all the participants for giving it their very best effort. 3HH ran the fire lighting base for everyone to try their hand at. The Cubs also had the chance to try some kayaking and canoeing on The River Thames in Hampton.

CubJam 2009

Friday, August 1st, 2008

Hi Cubs

In 2009 3rd Hampton Hill Cubs are planning on going to CUBJAM. This is a Cubs only Jamboree held every 4 years, this time at the Scouting World Headquarters in Gilwell Park. There will be about 2,000 Cubs on site and the theme for the whole event is “CARNIVAL”. There will be three different carnival sub-camps, Notting Hill, New Orleans and Rio De Janeiro. We’re currently assigned to New Orleans, but this may change.

The dates are Saturday 23rd to Friday 29th May 2009, basically the May half term week.

We’ll be putting out full details of the camp in September, but for anyone wanting to take a sneaky peek, have a look at the CubJam website.

Cubs End of Term News

Monday, July 21st, 2008

Hi Everyone

That’s it now until September, I hope you all enjoyed the summer term as much as we did. :-)

THANK YOU as well to all the people that have helped out over the last year at all the events and camps we’ve had. From running teams at district events and supporting us on camps, to simply bringing your Cubs down to the hut every week on time and smartly turned out, it all adds up to give an AMAZING result.

We would also like to recognise and say a big THANK YOU to Rich Moody, our Group Scout Leader. For those that don’t know, he’s the guy that keeps us all on track (and occasionally keeps us in line!), looks after our interests within the district and the county and does a HUGE amount of co-ordination and organisation behind the scenes on our behalf.

We’ll be saying cheerio to some of our Cubs over the summer, THANK YOU for all your energy and enthusiasm. We wish you all the best with Scouts.

Summer campers – will see you all on Saturday 26th.

First nights back in the Autumn will be Monday 15th and Wednesday September 17th for games, new Sixers & Seconders and hopefully welcoming some new Beavers. See you all then.

Cheers all, have the most BRILLIANT holidays!!

3HH Cubs go cycling in Bushy Park

Monday, June 9th, 2008

3HH’s cubs have been cycling in Bushy Park. After covering road safety earlier in the term, this was a great opportunity to put the theory into practice while dealing with some staged “incidents” along the route to test their skills and quick thinking.

Before half term the Cubs were given a donation form.

As part of the event we hope to raise some money for Shooting Star as a return gesture on behalf of our visitor, Dr Jean, who has cycled the Nile valley and is preparing to cycle around Cuba in order to raise money for Shooting Star. She gave us an excellent, informative and inspiring talk on her expeditions and about the work of Shooting Star, lets do our best to show her some support!

Cubs Summer Newsletter

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

Hi Everyone

First of all I must say that there was a top turn out last night with everyone looking good. Full uniforms all round, jumpers AND scarves! Well done!! Congratulations as well to Jacob and the rest of his team who did the best in the “Match Relay” and also had the best scores in all the cycling quizzes. Top effort!

Just a couple of things to mention. In the paperwork you took home last night there were some important forms:

1) Cycling Donation Form. This is in support of Shooting Star following the excellent visit we had last term by Dr Jean when she gave a show on her Nile expedition. It would be great to raise some money as a thank you and for the work that they do at the Shooting Star. Even £1 per cub would raise £50, so lets see if we can do that as a minimum! (Don’t forget to Gift Aid it too.)

2) Subs. As usual, please can we get these returned as soon as possible. A reminder that for the Beavers that have made the swim up there is the additional Section payment as well.

3) Highway code. These booklets are for information only, we’re in no way doing anything like the Cycling Proficiency award that many of you will do later in school and there’s no test or anything like that. But take a look at them anyway, there’s a lot of good stuff in there about safe cycling and road safety.

Finally – SUMMER CAMP – the list is up in the hut for anyone wanting to go. Please do note that there are only 40 spaces available so I would recommend getting your name down sooner rather than later. We’ll get the information out soon about cost etc, but it should be in the normal range of £70 to £80 per cub. (But like everyone else we get hit by the higher cost of food these days!) The dates are Saturday 26th July to Wednesday 30th July.

And on the subject of camps, check out the link for the 2009 CUBJAM, 2,500 Cubs descending on Gilwell Park for 6 nights for a MEGA CARNIVAL. 3HH have registered to go and this will probably be the only big camp we have next year, we hope you’ll want to come too!!

Hope you all have brilliant half term holidays. Cheers Jon

PS – Date for the diary Sunday April 26th 2009 – St George’s Day Parade in Richmond……!!!

Cubs Summer Term Programme

Monday, April 28th, 2008

Hi Everyone. As promised last week, here’s the programme for Cubs 2008 Summer term. Lots and lots planned, including our Outdoor Challenges, Athlete and Cyclist badges. No making beds required this term – not as part of Cubs anyway!

A few things to highlight:

* Church parades are scheduled for first Sundays of May and June as normal, but in July Church Parade will be on Sunday 20th to celebrate St James’s Day.

* It’s an open invite to all parents for the last night of term, 16th July. Weather permitting we’ll have some fires going and do “schmoors” and other fireside tasties.

* Summer Camp. Dates are finalised and the site / activities booked, more info on this coming soon, e.g. costs, but be sure to get the dates in your diary (26th – 30th July) and be ready to respond quickly if you want to come!

* We’ll be requiring some additional parental help for a couple of the events, so if you can assist with any of those listed on the programme please do let us know – especially if you already have a valid CRB check!

Cheers all, see you soon. Jon and Wend

“Popcorn” and “Chocolate” take on the District

Saturday, March 1st, 2008

Today saw Cubs from all over the Richmond Upon Thames District compete in the District Cub Challenge competition held at Teddington School. Despite the photographic evidence, there was more to it than simply shoving doughnuts down their necks!

3HH put in a determined and valiant performance with the “Popcorn” team coming in 9th and the “Chocolate” team being awarded 4th place! Well done everyone for giving it your best. Cubtastic!

Massive thanks to Sarah H and Laura T for looking after the teams during the afternoon.

Cubs in creative mood!

Sunday, February 10th, 2008

The Cubs had fun creating their names in wire, fridge magnets and engraved leather with designs.

Swimming up! Beavers going up to Cubs

Beavers Cubs

Some pictures of a recent ‘swimming up’ ceremony.

The River and Riverbanks are formed by the Beavers and the new Cubs are helped to swim up by a number of Cubs.

It looks like the Beavers swimming up enjoyed it and are looking forward to having even more fun at Cubs!

Cubs Easter Camp 2008

3HH Cubs go back into the Olde World of…


Saturday Ye 5th to Wednesday Ye 9th April 2008

Partake in ye olde activitees with Robin’s merry men and defeat the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham? Sleep in tents, cook on open fires, construct Robin’s hideout in the woods and defend it, design your own coat-of-arms and make bows & arrows with quivers, naturally! Then of course there’s the archery, aerial trekking, grass-sledging, go-karting, hike to Biggin Hill Airport and much more…

No doubt there’ll be some medieval jesters frivolity at the Medieval Banquet! We will have a hut to sleep in on the first night, and where our camp cook will prepare all meals and for creativity and talent if the weather is bad – but here’s to fab weather and lots of free time play in the woods. Cubs love mud, fresh air and freedom, especially when you give them a theme to play with :)

Cost of the camp is £70, we need a minimum of 24 cubs to make this viable. As a point of note, 3HH scouts will also be camping at the same venue at the same time, though in a remote spot in the depths of the woods – perhaps we should ambush them? Tee-hee!!!
