Cub Scouts visit Kippington

About thirty Cub Scouts from Sevenoaks First Cubs came to Kippington to start the run up to Christmas for our residents. They sung Christmas carols, gave out home-made Christmas Cards, and demonstrated their many other talents, including close-up magic and playing various musical instruments both stringed and wind.

They introduced themselves with their traditional ‘Big Howl’, as they call their reciting of the Cub Scout code, and sung carols both traditional and new to the delight of many residents. This was followed by the demonstrations of the individual skills of several of the cubs, and then the Christmas cards were handed around. Fruit juices, mince pies, sweets and cub-made biscuits were made available for refreshment, and Cubs talked with the residents, many being asked and explaining what their various badges were for.

The visit finished with the cubs telling jokes and singing some of their amusing Campfire songs.

The residents of Kippington were delighted with the visit and commented on how delightful and talented the children were, though some were surprised that there is now a mixture of both boys and girls in the same club!

The Cubs visit Kippington every Christmas, but we hope to extend the number of visits they make to the home in the future.
