A GROUP of cubs from Moulton celebrated gaining the highest award possible last week.

They will now go on to join the newly formed scouts, after their small group of eight members expanded to 18 since it began nearly two years ago.

Rachel Early, who runs the group, said: “It is brilliant timing that the boys received their awards just as we found out we will be able to start our scouts group.”

To achieve their chief cub award, the youngsters had to collect individual badges including creativity, promise and challenge.

Rachel added: “They had so much fun earning their badges, but worked really hard for them as well.

“Their favourite part was definitely the camping.”

Despite having just secured a new cub and scout leader, the group, based at Moulton community centre, are looking for more volunteers to help out.
