Well done to 6th Netley Marsh Cubs for winning this year’s District BrainBox Competition. Our thanks to Tara at the 3rd Ashurst & Colbury for organising and hosting the evening. I believe there were ten teams overall so well done to all for taking part.
Our thanks also to Ginny Stewart who kindly funded a new shield for the competition in memory of her late husband Colin Stewart. Colin was a Cub leader at 7th Calmore, then for many years a very valued member of our District Scout Active Support. Colin and Ginny’s son, Wayne, presented the shield.
