A century of Scouts

Published on: 13 December 2016

This year The Scout Association is marking the centenary anniversary of the Cub Scout movement since it began in December 1916. As part of the celebrations the Speaker, John Bercow, welcomed Cub Scouts from across the UK to celebrate the past 100 years.

Cub Scouts have had an action packed year celebrating the Cubs100 by hosting their own local Promise Parties, ‘Thanks Events’ for all the dedicated volunteers as well as joining in the fun at national events such as CubJam and Cubs Take Over days throughout the year.

I am a proud supporter of the Scouts. It’s a great thing for young people to get involved in and it can offer them amazing opportunities.
