CUB scouts are to be kings and queens of the castle – with the help from English Heritage.
Suffolk's boy and girl cub scouts are set for the monarchy with new-look local knowledge badges launched this week.
Incorporating a castle design and the distinctive crimson English Heritage logo, the badges will soon be seen adorning the arms of cub scouts across the country.
To set them on their way English Heritage has offered cub scout packs free visits to any of English Heritage's 409 historic sites and produced a four-page colour booklet full of information for leaders.

Last year English Heritage cemented its relationship with the scouts by investing £10,000 in a two-year sponsorship of the scout heritage badge, aimed at older children.
Head of Education and Heritage, Mike Corbishley, said: "Our support for the cub scouts is a natural progression from our involvement with the scouts. Young people are the future guardians of our built heritage and we actively encourage them to take an interest in it early on.

There is a wealth of things to see and do for children at our sites and often they'll be surprised by how much fun it can be. If they're shown what to look for, children can become hooked on heritage and it's an interest that will stay with them for life."
