A bright Ipswich cub pack were praised today after they clocked up a string of awards.

Six boys from the 10th Ipswich Cub Pack recently entered the West District Quiz team where they beat off-stiff competition from some 15 other teams to win by 14 points.

The team included Keiron Mouser, Alex Hitter, Jorge Pashler, Jacob Wooding and Michael Mayhew.

The pack won the trophy by two clear points in the next round where they represented the West District in the County Quiz at Bury St Edmunds. James Curtis stepped in at the last minute for Michael Mayhew who couldn't make it on the day.

Cub scout leader June Cullingford, said: "I am so proud of the group. I have been scouting for 40 years and this is the first time we have done this sort of thing. Being a young pack I think we have done really well."

Two weeks later the pack came first in the West District Swimming Gala at Crown Pools. The team was made up of Daniel Green, Jorge Pashler, Tom Goody, Daniel Ingham, Robert Howell, Jack Harriies and Conner Baker as substitute.

But the accolades haven't stopped there.

On remembrance Sunday two of the group's leaders: June and scout leader Peter Best received awards for their dedication to scouting. The cub pack is made up of 18 boys aged eight to ten years.

In the group four leaders between them have over 100 years experience with scouting.
