Our mascot, Cookie, takes in the views of Tambourine Bay
1st Tambourine Bay Sea Scouts launched its’ Joey Mob on 7th May. There has been great interest amongst younger siblings of Cubs and Scouts for some time.
Andrew Mosey, Joey Scout Leader, completed his training in record time and is joined by Assistant Joey Leaders Josie Crawford and Chris Crawford – who incidentally are not related!
The mob started with 12 young eager Joeys and is going from strength to strength, with interest spreading like a virus in the local community.
The program offers a mix of activities, games, craft, and lots of fun for our 6 and 7 year old Joeys.

Parents, Cubs and Scouts were rostered to sell the trees – and there’s not much more fun to be had selling than when it comes to selling a Christmas tree.
