Introductory Meeting

On the 12th September the new Beavers and new Helpers met for the first time. The meeting wasa mixture of games and making name badges. The picture shows the Beavers lining up for a relay type game. We found that all the helpers were needed but not all the time. 

District Dominoes

To night was a District Event and we met at the Quest Headquarters.  Only 6 Beavers attended but an enjoyable evening was had. We had 8 games of dominoes and the results were recorded. The top two Beavers from each Group were then invited to attend the County competition on 22nd September. The two winners from Longford were Lachlan and Archie.   Well done and good luck at the Country event.

On Sunday the 8th July there was another District organised activity with a visit to the Crocky Trail near Chester. Although the weather forecast had not been very promising it turned out to be a lovely day. The five of our Beavers who came on the outing had a good time on the various activities and walking round the trail with its variety of bridges over the stream, swings, tunnels, balancing planks etc to keep them occupied. The brochure said it was a mile round the trail but it seemed further. When we got back from the trail it was time for lunch and then in the afternoon more time was spent on the activities near the entrance.

Teddy Bear Picnic

The final meeting before the Summer break was a Teddy Bear picnic held at the allotments of various of the Group's Leaders. This gave the Beavers the chance to see where food really comes from. Fortunately it was a fine evening.
