At present we have 29 Beavers on the register. We have four children on our waiting list who are old enough to join.
We have had a very enjoyable and busy year!!!
As a group the Beavers have gained their Communicator, creative, Safety, Space, Experiment, Health and Fitness, Disability and Faith badges.
We again had an excellent Hampshire Beavers day out at Paultons Park in November, where we met Santa, who gave all the Beavers a lovely present. The Winter Wonderland is truly amazing!!!
Beavers had a very enjoyable day/sleepover at our Group St Georges Day Camp at Harrys Island in May, where everyone had a go at Archery and Axe throwing!!.
A very big Thank you to the Leaders who organised this and to the parents for their help!
We have done quite a few hikes and Beavers have earned their hike Stage 1, 2 and 5 badges and 2 have Hike stage 10!!
We had a brilliant meeting for our younger Beavers in June at Alderholt Riding Stables, where the Beavers got to groom horses, muck out the stables, bucket up the feed for the horses and got to ride on them!! Whilst this was taking place our older Beavers were at Hengistbury Head gaining their Paddlesports Stage 1 badges.
Our visit in June to the Fire station was amazing…and everyone got to sit in the fire engine and use the fire hose, some Beavers even managed to spray water backwards getting the Leaders wet!!!
Our last meeting of the summer term was a Family Sandcastle competition at Bournemouth beach, the sand was perfect as it had poured with rain the day before. All the sandcastles were fantastic. Well-done to everyone who took part.
We try to base most of our meetings around activity badges and the challenge badges, so that our Beavers can gain their Bronze Chief Scout Award...
Bronze Chief Scout awards that have been presented this year are to Charlie Musselwhite, Luca Rayner and Rhys Sayers-Carter……
…...................a Huge Achievement, you had to work hard to gain this……
Well done, we are very proud of you all!!!
