On 2 April
2011, over 100 Cubs and leaders from across Petworth & Pulborough
District took boarded
coaches to take them to the
at Portsmouth. The group included 18 Cubs from Parbrook and of course our very
own Raksha had organised the whole day for the District.
Our tickets included the full tour of the dockyard including HMS Victory, HMS
Warrior, the harbour tour and all the various museums plus a chance to let off
steam in Action Stations. Although we arrived soon after 10am and were there
until 5pm it was still a struggle to fit it all in.

Royal was moored nearby. So Raksha got a picture of the Cubs with Ark Royal in
Those that followed us (@ParbrookCubs) on Twitter or checked the home page of
the website for our Twitter feed got extra information (including pictures) from
the trip as it happened:
