Kath Fisher leader, (Akala) of the Cubs was a keen and enthusiastic member of the Scout movement. She lived for her Cubs and taught them outdoor skills that many modern day boys miss out on. Many of her Cubs moved up to the Sea Scout section of the group when old enough.
Kath was very keen on camping and used to take a Pack of Cubs to weekend camps at Belchamps, Hockley which was a Scout camp site and a training centre for Scout leaders. Some weekends Kath would bring the Cubs down to the Sea Scout H.Q. by Benfleet Creek to help out with boat maintenance; they were not allowed afloat.
