On Saturday 15th November 85 Cub Scouts from 10 of the 14 Cub Packs in Cromwell District made a splash as they took part in their annual swimming event.

Cub Packs enter teams for a series of races, involving much more than just swimming lengths in a pool. It’s great fun and even the adults get their own races too.

The event is designed to encourage team work, give Cub Scouts and their leaders the chance to get together, have fun – and get wet of course!

A huge thanks to the 30 volunteers who make the event happen, particularly the main organiser – District Cub Scout Leader Callum Dickerson.

If you would like to find out more about the event, so you could consider running it in your own District, or perhaps would like to sponsor the event in some way please contact communications@cambridgeshirescouts.org.uk
