Cubs from the 12th Wisbech Scout group celebrated Burns Night in style by playing host to Ian Baca from the Peterborough Highland Band.

Mr Baca told the cubs all about legendary Scottish poet Robert Burns, read some of his poetry and played the bag pipes for the cubs and scouts.

The cubs, all wearing something tartan, held a mini Highland Games as part of their global challenge badge, with events such as toss the caber, stone put, neep hockey challenge, sheaf toss and a porridge relay.

The evening was rounded off by having haggis, shortbread, drinking Irnbru and eating battered deep fried Mars bars all to the sound of the bag pipes.
