In this year of Olympics and Euro2020 we will be having an international theme for the cooking competition. The challenge will be to create a two-course meal consisting of a main and a dessert from a country of your choice.

As always points will be given for a creative menu, complex skill levels, hygiene, value for money, presentation and teamwork.

Each pack can enter one team of up to 5 members. There is a spending limit of £10 per team. Seasonings and ingredients that need only a pinch or a teaspoon will not be counted in this total. Please see the separate sheet for average costs for many common ingredients.

The meals should be cooked on camp cookers using gas. You will need to provide all of your own equipment. Please see one of the district leaders if you need to borrow any cookers and we will try to help out.

On Thursday evening the 250 th Manchester Cub Pack held their last meeting of 2019 at their headquarters on Ellen Street, Droylsden. During the evening, Andrew Morton, the District Commissioner, presented the Cubs with lots of Activity Award Badges.

Andrew also invested four new Cub Scouts into the Pack.

highest award that a Cub Scout can achieve while in the Cub Scout Section,
before moving onto the Scout Section. They also had to complete a number of Challenge Awards to achieve the Silver Award, these included Disability

The two Cubs Amber and Cassidy said they enjoyed completing the awards and learned many skills that helped them to enjoy life.

Danielle Ives, the Cub Scout Leader, said she was very proud of all the work
they had done over the past year. Andrew said the achievements of the Cubs reflected well on the Leaders and Parents, who encouraged the Cubs to achieve such high standards.
