Cub Scouts Movie Night


On Saturday night, Manannan Cubs and Snaefell Cubs joined forces, in total we had forty Cubs, six Leaders, one Explorer Scout & one dog. Everyone met at Grooudle Beach Car Park where we walked through the very muddy glen right the way through up to Molly Quirks Glen.  At Molly Quirks Glen we held a couple of wide games before returning back to the Scout Hall.  Once at the Scout Hall everyone cleaned themselves up and we watched a couple of films on the big screen.  The last two Cubs were asleep by 3am, everyone was up bright and early. Once Akela from Snaefell & Akela from Manannan Cub Pack were up, we packed the gear away and had breakfast.  After breakfast we watched a bit of the Simpsons before playing in the park.  All Cubs and Leaders had a brilliant time and all had smiles on their faces when they left.  Let’s look forward to the next joint film night with both Packs.

Moddey Dhoo Scouts Fun Day


Scouts from 2nd Onchan Scouts Moddey Dhoo Troop have decided to get behind The Isle of Man’ Children centre’s latest Charity Drive with a Fun Day for the whole family.

As part of the £50 Think Big Challenge the Scouts were given six weeks and £50 to raise as much money as possible. After a round of passionate debating by the troop patrol leaders, who hold the most responsibility in the troop, it was decided to hold a fun day.

Some of the activities planned by the Scouts depending on weather include tea and coffee stands, beat the keeper stand, bouncy castle, cake sale, sponge a scout area and a version of a coconut shy.

The Fun Day will be held in and around the 2nd Onchan Scout Hut opposite Onchan school on Sunday 12th February between 11am and 3pm and is open to all members of the public.
