We are finalising arrangements for the trip to Belfast on the 26th January.
Some of the times below are approximate, we will confirm everything by text and on this site over the next week.
We will be leaving the Den in Bray at 9.00am on Saturday 26th January, there will be about 18/20 Cubs travelling. All four leaders will be travelling with the cubs, Adrienne, Karen, Fiona and Rory, we will also have Cormac and Heather who have been helping out in Cubs for the past few months. In addition, we are hoping to have David and Sarah Scouts/Ventures, so there will be more than enough adults with the children.
We should arrive at the Ulster Folk Park, which is in Hollywood, about 5 miles north of Belfast, at about lunchtime, and the Cubs will be having their packed lunch before spending 2/3 hours in the park. The bus will then pick us up and bring us to the Odyssey centre where we will have dinner in Pizza Hut and then go directly into the game.
The bus will pick us up immediately after the game at the Odyssey, at 9.30pm and we will head straight for home. I would expect the journey to take about 2 ½ hours but we can text parents when we get close to home.
We won’t be in Belfast city centre, and there will be very little opportunity for the Cubs to go shopping. If they wish, they could bring a small amount of sterling cash to buy sweets etc. at the Folk Park. We would also discourage the Cubs from bringing expensive electronic games & phones, they would have to be left on the bus, and we could not be responsible for their safe-keeping.
If you have any questions or concerns about the day, please contact one of the leaders. We have made trip a number of times over the past few years, and have always had a very enjoyable day.
Yours in Scouting
