Beaver Section News
We had a visit from a friend who was a child during the Second World War albeit at the time he was a bit older than the Beavers are now. The Beavers sat listening to him recount what it was like and asked questions as he went along.
This week we had our Halloween evening and although only 9 Beavers attended on Wednesday they were all dressed in fancy dress. We had various activities for them to do - trying to eat a donut hanging from a string without using their hands. Icing a spiders web on a biscuit, trying to retrieve sweets from a bowl of jelly and lastly putting their hands in a box of "brains" to try and find a sweet. An enjoyable evening for all.
We ran an extra meeting on Wed 7th Nov for those who went on the District Camp in September but did not attend the extra meeting in October. This was to cover items that completed this badge but which were not covered at the camp. This included knowing how to tie a reef knot, completing a mini pioneering project, and an introduction to the idea of a Camp Fire Blanket. The picture shows some of those who attended busy with the pioneering project using marshmallows and spaghetti.
We ran an extra meeting for those who went on the District Camp. They had covered a lot of this badge but various bits needed to be finished off. This was the purpose of this extra meeting . It was successful as the eleven who attended from both Colonies completed the badge. One of the things covered was making a mini pioneering project. This involved building using mini marshmallows and spaghetti. The result was tested to survive a min earthquake.
