Meet the Cub Team

Our leadership team is entirely made up of volunteers who enjoy running cub meetings! All adult leaders have training and a DBS check, and there is always at least one adult who is first aid qualified.

If you would like the opportunity to do something you’d never thought of doing, while having lots of fun and giving back to the community at the same time, please get in touch – we can always do with more leaders!

About Me
I have been involved with scouting at 1st Buglawton since 1977 when I joined the cubs pack after cubs I joined 1st Congleton Scouts.  At 16 I became a young leader with the cubs in 1987 and was an Assistant Cub Scout Leader (ACSL) for many years.  Scouting has always been part of my life with my mum being Akela at the group for many years. After my mums retirement from the pack in 2016, myself and and two others took over.

I enjoy swimming and walking and work as a landscape gardener, so love the outdoor life and getting the cubs out and about enjoying nature!

About Me

My life as a Cub leader started when I became a helper at the age of 14 with my local group 1st Chelford.

A change in leaders at Chelford resulted in a Cub Mum taking on the roll and I worked with her during the transition before I moved out of the area. In Leicestershire I ran a Cub pack, 1st Waltham on the Wolds, as they did not have a leader, where I stayed for four years until I moved back to Cheshire. I then joined 1st Buglawton, the local group and I have been here for twelve years. Taking Cubs and adventures and camps is something very important to me.

About Me
Scouting was a big part of my childhood, particularly as my mother was a scout leader and Akela.  I was doomed to get involved again when my wife joined our cub pack as a leader.  Slowly but surely I became more involved in various aspects of the group and have taken on a more active role, including running badges and helping to support the sections.  I have also helped to produce promotional material for the group.

Scouting Highlight
The dramatic portrayal of being eaten by a bear (in the scout hut meeting room) for the entertainer badge.   It sounded very realistic!

Scouting Super Power

Something you couldn’t live without?

Favourite biscuit
