Our Beavers recently had an evening where they made poppies to use in St Margaret’s Church. Each poppy carried the name of a service man from Uxbridge who fell during the First World war. The poppies were to take to the Church and would be laid on the altar table at the Remembrance Day service. Below are some photographs from the Beaver meeting which also show six Beavers being invested at the end of the evening.
On Sunday 24th June 86 eager beaver scouts arrived at Chalfont Heights campsite to join in with 800 other beaver scouts from across the county for a big fun day. The theme this year was countries, keeping in step with the Jamboree that is happening this summer to celebrate 100 years of scouting.
The weather was not kind to us and rained for most of the day. This did not dampen the spirits of the beaver scouts, there were plenty of smiley faces enjoying and exploring all the activities on site. There were bouncy castles, badge making, stocks and bottle rockets to name but a few.
Lunch was eaten in the training block so we were able to stay warm and dry.
Next the clowns put on a very good show with all types of juggling and even fire eating (Not to be tried at home!) The activities reopened at 1.30pm and off they went again. 2nd Uxbridge had stocks as a base, where leaders were very good sports and got a drenching from the beavers. A great day was had by all and the beavers went home with a pennant and a scout wrist band.
On a Sunny Sunday 18th June, 16 eager Beaver Scouts arrived at Chalfont Heights camp site to join in with 800 other Beaver Scouts from across the County for a giant birthday party. The Beaver Scouts made party hats and then they were off to explore and enjoy all the activities on site. They had a go on the bouncy castles, and the giant swings to name but a few. After lunch had been eaten, there was the cutting of a very large birthday cake and singing of Happy Birthday. Next came the clowns who put on a very good show. The activities reopened around 1.30pm and off they went again. Our activity was the stocks where Mark (Otter) was a very good sport and got a drenching from the Beaver Scouts. A great day was had by all and the Beavers went home with a party bag and feeling tired. Many thanks to Hamster and Robin who manned the stocks base and for helping the leaders get wet, even those who were not in the stocks!! Thanks also to Otter and Rat for giving up their Sunday and looked after the Beaver Scouts so well.
