This is the start of a three-year cycle that will see set days for cubs to work together in order to gain activity badges, such as Artist, Scientist and Astronomer, on a rotational basis.

1st Apsley and Gadebridge Beavers have also been busy, visiting Radio Dacorum and spending the weekend sleeping over at Lees Wood.
