Back Together Safely (COVID-19): Latest plans on how the group is returning to face-to-face Scouting. Find out more


Cubs are the second section of the Scouting family (aged 8 to 10½), and generally meet for an hour and a half per week during school term time. For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key.

Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.

The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.

We have one Cub pack which is very popular that meet on a Tuesday. They meet at Farnsfield Village Centre, New Hill, Farnsfield, Newark, Nottinghamshire. NG22 8JN.

Tuesdays (Bramley) 6.45pm-8.15pm – Cub Scout Leader Faye Asher-Hibbett and Assistants Jessica Nixon and Marianne Sharlotte.

Thursdays (Hexgreave) 7.00pm-8.30pm – Cub Scout Leader Emma Turner and Assistants Nicky Downer and Claire Richardson.

Scouting provides a second family to lots of young people. It’s a safe place where they can aspire and grow.'
