Haddenham Cub Leader Retires after 25 years
On Tuesday night at the Scout and Guide Centre in Haddenham, Richard Lay gave up his woggle and uniform and retired from the Scout Association.
Richard has been the ever present Cub Scout leader in Haddenham and Crendon for the last 25 years, during which time he has trained, supported and mentored over 400 cub scouts. This is an outstanding achievement.
Richard will always be remembered for his fun packed evening and camps where he has created many memories for the cubs and leaders he has worked alongside.
In the last cub session of the year, many cubs (old and new), parents, previous leaders and friends turned up to give Richard a well-deserved send off. On the hottest day of the year, the cubs had a water fight and created a water slide to play on while the guests enjoyed a BBQ and excellent cake baked by Jo Swash. Richard was thanked for his services to the Scout Association by the local leaders and Richard Kendall chairman of the Scout and Guide Centre.
Although we are sad to see Richard leave, Cub Scouts will continue in the village under the leadership of Ben Sweetman who has been assistant Cub Scout leader for the last 4 years.
If you are interested in your child attending cubs then please contact Ben on email@example.com
