Beavers are the youngest members of the scouting movement. The 6-8 year olds enjoy fun meetings and do exciting things.
Unfortunately the Beaver Colony in Haddenham had to close at the end of last term. Without leaders to run the activities it has not been possible to resume meetings this term.
Can you spare some time to help get the Beaver Colony up and running again — for the benefit of the existing beavers and of the youngsters on the waiting list? Not only do beavers enjoy themselves but it is also fun being a leader.
It would be possible to run the colony on your own, with help from parents. However, if two people joined forces to run the colony together as leaders, it would be easier and even more fun.
Leaders will require a few Scout Association training courses and time to plan fun activities and to run the term-time weekly meetings.
A number of existing and former scouting leaders in the village would be very happy to help with advice and ideas. We are all anxious to get the colony restarted, and for youngsters to be able to enjoy beaver activities before progressing to the existing cub pack and scout troop.
The Beaver Colony used to meet 5-6 pm on Tuesdays at the Scout & Guide Centre, but days and times are flexible.
If you might be able to help and would like to have a chat, please contact:
