Inverurie Cub Scouts marked 100 years since the section was launched with a very special panto performance.

The group were joined by Cub Scouts from across Gordon District to renew their Cub Scout promise at 19:16 on Friday, December 16 at Inverurie Panto, pledging to do their best and help other people.

The hall was packed with Cub Scouts!

Groups that attended included Insch, Inverurie, Westhill, Alford, Kemnay, Kintore, Newmachar, Newburgh and Ellon.

Adult volunteer Linda Gill said: “I first heard that the scout movement wanted all cubs to renew their promise on the 16th December at the end of last year and I started thinking on how Inverurie Cubs would do it.

“We usually go to the pantomime in Inverurie every year and so I enquired with Keith Donaldson if it would be possible to take over the whole hall and open the event to Gordon Districr cubs.

“Keith was delighted that I had contacted them and so I began the planning.

“The cubs were extremely noisy and sang along in fine voice, they throughouly enjoyed the experience.”

The Cub Scouts also got the opportunity to meet the Inverurie Panto cast members.

Cub Scout, Euan Nicol (10) said: “I’ve had some really good adventures with Cub Scouts, it’s great!

“I’m so excited to go to the panto and renew my promise.

“In Cubs I also get to go to camps and have fun. I get to play games with my friends and make new friends. I learn really useful things like First Aid and DIY.

“Being a Cub Scout is all about doing your best and I try to do that every day.”

Cub Scouts in Scotland joined together with thousands of others, across the country, to renew their Cub Scout promise.

Celebrations have been taking place across the UK with Cub Scouts retaking their promise at Edinburgh Castle, The Angel of the North, Tower Bridge London, Stormont and at Deep Sea World sleeping under the shark, and much more.

The events have been organised by local groups and they’re being encouraged to do it in places other than their usual meeting place.
