4th Brightlingsea Scout Group 2015
Ian (Akela) -
Donna (Shere Khan) -
Barry (Beer Grills) on the left and Mark (Chil) on the right. Barry like me has been involved in scouting for ages. He carried on after I left for uni and stopped when I took over, coming back into it when his son started. He got the beer grill name as he is for ever coming up with gadgets of all types and ideas involving scouting. Always first up at cub camp after little sleep. Mark started when he came down to the scout hut to see if his son could join…….and you could say we kept hold of him ever since. Unfortunately he changed jobs which means he works away now so can’t make cub nights but is our main chef on camps and sleep overs. Not to be talked to when he just gets up at any camp or sleep over after little sleep.
Lance (Flunkey) & Sally (Jacala), our second husband and wife team. Both started helping when their children joined the pack. As newbies to the cub leader team Lance wants to get everything done NOW. He is very very keen to do things and learn new skills. Sally edged Lisa out of the kitchen and now has her hot drinks list for anyone who walks into the hall, and I mean anyone. Specialist skills for Lance it has to be being keen and liking a laugh and joke. For Sally it has to be talking……..The whole family are keen expert sailors.
Becky (Flaps) -
Last but not least Lisa (Mrs Akela). Her cub name comes from being my (akelas) long suffering wife. She starting helping out by making drinks for the adults and cubs on a pack night and helping with the home help badge. Her role then grew to helping when a leader couldn’t make a night and when Sally edged her out of the kitchen she now looks after Barry’s six when he is at work. Not keen in being out on the floor or doing games she is found in the kitchen with Sally and Donna keeping an eye out on cub behaviour from the doorway. Special skills are home help badge, badges / activities that require food and of course making home made cakes for cub camp and or fun day.
These lot make up our fantastic Spartan Cub Scout Leader Team
