Keeping socially distanced, regularly hand sanitising and following the new ‘COVID code’, the group completed the second half of the fire safety badge that was started just before lockdown, when the Cubs visited Newport Fire Station.
The young people safely learnt how to use sparklers and write their name in the sky. They learnt the different aspects to safely light, manage and put out a campfire and best of all they toasted their own marshmallows and drank fresh hot chocolate.
Kieran O’Toole, Cub Scout Leader, said:
“I took a while to get us COVID ready and to get approved by our county commissioner but we did it and together we organised an amazing evening, that each child managed to earn a badge, learn new ‘Skills For Life’ and have lots of fun”.
