VE Day Activities

Next Friday 8th May is the 75th anniversary of VE Day.  National celebrations will be somewhat different to those we all expected and planned for, but this week’s South West Scouting at Home activities for Cubs should help them to understand what it is all about and inspire them to have a party a home.  Feel free to download the PDF of activities and share with your Cub Scouts’ families.

You might like to encourage them to share photos of their achievements via your group / section Facebook page, by email or maybe in a Zoom ‘show and tell’ type meeting with all their friends. There is also a Powerpoint presentation, designed by the British Legion for use in school assemblies, which you may want to use with your Cub pack via Zoom (or similar) too.


These activities contribute towards the Our World Challenge badge and Air Activities Staged activity badge


Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
