This year we are celebrating 100 years of Cubbing worldwide. In South Africa we are celebrating through Group, District, Regional and National events. But, if we really want to know why Cubbing Rocks, who better to ask than the Cubs themselves….
We spoke to Nicholas Viviers (9) from 1st Henley Cub Pack in Gauteng.
