Welcome to the web-site dedicated to the Cubs and Leaders of the 8th St. Margaret's Cub Scouts (the magpies) and of course, the rest of our Group. My name is Barry Smith, I am the Cub Scout Leader, (Akela) at the 8th St. Margaret's Group. I was A.D.C. Cub Scouts for 10 years, (1st april, '88' to 1st april '98) (thats where the Wontolla comes from).

We are based at St. Margaret's Rd. Prestwich, Manchester. Our assistant Cub scout leader is Bill ward- grey wolf. and our GSL Pam Hulme- Raksha, turns up to help most weeks. grey wolf and I hold authorizations for Hill-walking and Climbing (single pitch). I frequently take my Digital camera on the hills, and also to most of our Scouting activities, so I have included some of my photos in the gallery.

I hope to put something of interest to all in these pages, but please have patience as I am finding it more and more difficult to find time to put digits to keys. Please return to our pages often, and hopefully, you will find something of interest or use. If you would like any information, or, if you have any input for the pages, you can e-mail me here, just click the symbol.
