Cubs grow their own lanterns!

This article was published in November 2006. Please see Latest News for more recent information.

Cubs from the 1st Eaton Bray and Edlesborough Group carved their very own home-grown pumpkins last week to celebrate Hallowe'en.

The vegetables were grown on the Scout group's allotment over the summer along with a variety of other vegetables which the boys took home, cooked and ate.

They even grew enough potatoes to use for the baked and mashed potatoes at camp in September.

The best two carved lanters received small prizes.

Liz Coates, Cub pack assistant said: "We feel that growing the vegetables is a beneficial exercise for the boys to appreciate how to grow and enjoy fresh food."
