Summer water slide & AGM

18 July 2013

It’s water slide time!

It’s summer and therefore it’s water slide time!  Every summer, the Cubs close the summer programme by getting out the giant water slide.  This is one of the highlights of the summer programme and with the hot sunny weather this year, a cooling water slide will be even more welcome than usual.  This year, we’ll be running it on 22nd July.

So what could make it even better?  Having a joint night with Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers too!  Oh, and don’t forget the leaders who will also be having a go.  Just try and stop us!

So you’re all not standing around waiting for too long, we’ll also have the water rockets out and our giant monkey bridge will be making its 3rd appearance in only 3 weeks.

What to bring, what to wear.

You’ll need to wear something suitable for getting very wet and soapy (we use washing up liquid to give you an extra boost).  Sliders will need to be wearing a t-shirt or similar too.

As you’re waiting or going on one of the other activities you’ll need something you can easily slip on your feet; something suitable to go on the monkey bridge.

Despite the warm weather, you’ll want a towel to wrap around yourself or something else to put on whilst waiting.  Don’t forget a change of clothes so you don’t soak your parents car seat on the way home.

Anyone who’s been on the water slide before will almost certainly have seen some of the Cubs being ‘fired’ down it.  If you want to be fired down the water slide you’ll need to make sure you bring a parent as we need them present if you want to be fired.


While the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers are busy getting wet, we’ll also be holding our Annual General Meeting and you’ll have the chance to see photos from Group Camp and the other activities our Sections have been up to this year.

Refreshments and nibbles will be available for all.

This will be the last meeting of the summer for all Sections.


Our entire leader team wish you a great summer holidays and look forward to seeing you on the 22nd.
