Members of the 1st Corringham Cub Scout Pack took part in a web chat across the English Channel from Stanford-le-Hope Library to a Senior Scout in Switzerland.

This allowed the Cubs to complete their Global Challenge Badge having also looked at the work done by world organisations like Oxfam and UNICEF as well as looking at their own environment and how this could affect the world too.

The web chat, which lasted over an hour and a half, was with Astrid Marion, a Senior Scout in Switzerland who had previously visited Essex in 2007 for the World Scout Jamboree held at Chelmsford .
