 Day: Wednesday

Time: 6:30pm-8pm (except for school holidays)

Location: Standlake Village Hall

Cubs is run by Anne Kearns, Peter Craddock and Matthew Judson. Both Anne and Peter have been in scouting for many years, with plenty of knowledge to share. We now have a new leader Matt Lodge.

Visit Cub (Cub Scout Association) for more information about what its like to be a cub. Here you will find information on what badges are available and where they go on your uniform, and about all the different and fun things you can do.

The cub pack is run by four uniformed leaders at the moment. This means we have each been issued with a warrant by the Scout Association. Peter Craddock, Group Scouter known to the children as Group (Simba). Matthew Judson known to the children as Chil. Matt Lodge known to the children as Mowgi. My name is Anne Kearns, known to the children as Rikki, Any inquiries relating to pack activities should initially be addressed to me.

We meet at Standlake Village Hall, starting at 6.30 pm. and finishing at 8.00 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. We aim to run about 10 to 12 sessions each term, although this can vary. At the beginning of each term we issue a programme for the entire term's activities, although again, this may need to be changed at the last moment. 

Uniform consists of a Cub sweatshirt (purchased online at :-  or  

During the time your child is a Cub Scout they will move through an award system. The term's programme will be constructed around the work necessary for the children to achieve these awards with the addition of team games and fun activities. We also try to do a pack badge each term; this is an activity badge that we all do together and normally includes some work to be done at home. Should you wish to know more about the award system, you may obtain a book either from us or via the Scouting Website.  Also look at the Oxfordshire Scouting 

This will also show you the exact requirement for the activity badges. Your son may choose to work for activity badges other than the ones I have chosen for the pack to do together.

The work for these is done independently at home and then brought in for a leader to assess.

During the year there are three uniformed parades that Cub Scouts are required to attend. 
The St. George's Day parade is in Witney close to April 23rd, the Remembrance Day parade is at St Giles Church Standlake  or St Denys' Church Northmoor close to November 11th and every eighteen months we are inspected as a group by the Royal Navy. There is also a weekend camp in late August or early September with other Cub packs, which is available, but not compulsory.

I hope this has answered some of your questions. If you have any further enquiries please don't hesitate to contact me. If your child ever has any worries during his time in Cubs we can usually sort it out, but only if we know! I - am always willing to listen to parents or children, but it will be easier at the end of a session or phone me at home or email me. All our contact details are under (Contact Directory) on this website which is Please could all new parents email me so I can add you to the email list and also fill in the online membership application form at the bottom of this page (How to Join). The last thing to say is that I cannot be responsible for your child's safety once they leave the main hall. Please collect your child from the inside door of the hall.

 Yours in Scouting

Anne Kearns (Rikki)
