Just under 100 Cubs and Scouts from Chesham and the surrounding areas recently enjoyed a day out in London last weekend (December 7 and 8).

On the Saturday, the children, who are aged between eight to 10-and-a-half, took part in a quiz where they had to try and visit a several popular sites in the capital which included Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Horseguards Parade, Westminster Abbey, Paddington Station, Speaker’s Corner and St. James’s Park.

This was followed by some of the Cubs travelling on Docklands Light Railway, with others going on a river bus so they could get to the Lord Amory Boat, owned by the Docklands Scout Project based at South Quays.

To make their way around the city, the children, who were accompanied with adults, took the train and river bus, with others opting to walk around the city.

Adult volunteer, Claire Rawlins, who organised the event said, “Scouting provides great opportunities for children, teenagers and adults.

“Some of the children had never been to London before and it’s very pleasing to see them smile and talk about seeing where the Queen lives or going on the River Bus.”

Cub Scout Owen Harris then said: “I enjoy being at Cubs as we do something different each week.

“One week we might be making fruit kebabs and healthy sandwiches.

“The next week we might be at the fire station and the week after we could be finding out about different countries and their customs and culture.”
