We joined the Cubs, Rainbows and Brownies for a puppet play in Tunstall Hall. This play follows on from the Porridge Pot play which we saw last year. The play was brilliant!
For our time on water badge we took a boat trip along the River Medway from the Malta Inn in a boat with Captain Tim. The weather was lovely and we saw so many other boats cruising the river.
This year we celebrate 30 years of Beaver Scouting, which started nationally in 1986. Tunstall Beavers started in 1987.
Making sweetee models
Camp fire to round off the activity day
The Beavers wrapped up warm and joined other Beavers in the District for an activity day. The activities included making a rope, tying knots, decorating a biscuit, building a mini pioneering model, building a fire to cook marshmellows on, learning how to put up a tent and how to build a fire. If that wasn’t enough the Beavers then played a wide game and took part in a camp fire. Good day all round.
We currently have vacancies for Beavers. If you have a child, boy or girl, aged 6 or 7 years of age who would like to join us at Tunstall Beavers please contact the Beaver Leader, Rowan.
We would just like to remind parents that the Beaver uniform is as follows:
Turquoise Beaver sweatshirt (this is essential as this is where the badges go)
Navy blue Scout activity trousers
Turquoise Beaver scarf (provided by the Group on investiture)
Maroon plastic woggle (provided by the Group on investiture)
The Beaver polo shirt is optional and may be worn in addition to and NOT instead of the sweatshirt
The Beaver baseball cap may be worn on outings but not to meetings. Scouts no longer wear hats as uniform
Other items from the range may be purchased but the only essential items are the four listed above.
We would welcome parental help on the activities. If you are able to help please contact Rowan.
We would just like to remind you that the subscription of £25 per Beaver is due at the beginning of the three main terms, January, April and September. This is used to pay the Headquarters capitation fee for each member for insurance etc.
