This weekend some of our older Scouts took part in a hike from Hockley to Wickford and then camped overnight at 2nd Wickford as part of their Scouts expedition challenge badge.

This evening the Cassini cubs enjoyed a guided tour of the Unbar Rothon spice factory in Billericay. They learnt about where spices are imported from and how they are blended to make food flavourings. They all enjoyed seeing what was inside that big blue factory on Radford way :-)
Thank you Patrick Rothon for making us all feel welcome and the spice gifts we were all given at the end of the tour!

Exciting new badges have recently been added to the cub programme and the Mercury Cubs are undertaking the Fire Safety Badge this term. The start of this badge was a visit to Billericay Fire Station last night. The cubs had a talk about the importance of smoke alarms and what to do in the event of a fire. They were then allowed to play with the hoses and most of them got a little wet!
