Scouts welcome boys in blue
CUB scouts in Kidwelly have received a special visit from a police officer and a local vicar as they completed their Promise Challenge.
The promise all cubs make when they join is that they will do their best, do their duty to God and the Queen and keep the cub scout law.
The challenge includes finding out more about what it means to do your duty as well as finding out how other people do their best.
Reverend Michael Wheatley from St Mary's Church in Burry Port explained how he does his duty to God and explained that everyone has faith, whether it's that there is a God, or that there is not.
And Inspector Eric Evans explained how police officers take an oath when they join to serve the Queen, keep the peace and uphold the law.
The cubs quizzed the officer on what it actually meant to do his duty, and how he did his best.
Cub scout Oliver was keen to understand more about how Inspector Evans kept people safe, while cub scout Iris asked if he liked serving the Queen.
Cub scout Cody said he enjoyed listening to Inspector Evans talk about how he helped to stop people who were bullying others, and he particularly enjoyed trying on the police helmets.
Cub scout leader, Marion Page said: "We were really pleased that Rev Wheatley and Inspector Evans were able to join us to explain how they both did their duty and in doing so brought the cub scout promise to life.
"We have quite a few new cubs at the moment, they are about to make their promise and we wanted them to fully understand the meaning behind the words.
"We are always happy for new young people to join in and get involved, as well as adults to help us organise events, trips and weekly meetings."
The cubs and scouts in Kidwelly meet every Tuesday in term time, and the beavers meet every Monday in term time.
