Spotlight on York Rescue Boat

York Rescue Boat is an organisation that was set up to provide better safety in and around the York rivers. Part of this is the education of young people so that they may know what actions to take should they find themselves in an emergency.  The team gave Atlantic Cubs a great insight into their role, what they could do in an emergency, prior to everyone having the chance to rescue a buddy – on dry land of course!

The Police come knocking!

As part of our Emergency Aid badge we were visited by two of our local PCSOs. They talked all about their role within the community and what you should do in an emergency. The cubs had great fun trying on some of their equipment, investigating the inside of their vehicle before saying a big “HELLO” across the York Police airway!

 

Snowball Fun February 2018

Not ones to miss an opportunity to get out and about – the building works at the hut gave Atlantic Cubs a great excuse to go to Snowball.

Once in, the cubs enjoyed a number of games and challenges before putting their backwoods cooking skills to the test. ‘Campfire made wagon wheels’

Why not try these next time you have a BBQ?

You need:

  • skewer
  • marshmallow
  • 2 chocolate biscuits

To make:

  1. place the marshmallow onto the skewer and gently roast over the fire/BBQ until golden brown – don’t leave it too long or it will catch fire!
  2. using the biscuits (chocolate side) trap the marshmallow between the biscuits and pull it off the skewer.
  3. voila you have your very own ‘wagon wheel. Be careful the marshmallow will be hot and very sticky!

Finally, a HUGE THANKS goes to our parent helpers, without whom we would not have been able to hold such activities.
