Beaver Section News
This week we have been trying to brighten up our part of Longford Park by planting crocus bulbs. The Beavers also planted dwarf daffodil bulbs in pots to take home and watch grow eventually and hopefully flower.
This week we met out at Turn Moss Car Park so that we could do the ride part of the Cyclist Activity Badge. In spite of a not very promising weather forecast we did not have too bad weather either evening. It was a bit wet and muddy on the ground so both riders and bikes were in need of a wash after the ride but I think everyone enjoyed the activity. There are a number of tracks which give some variety of routes. Thank you to the parents who came along for the ride and helped keep the Beavers on track. Badges will be presented shortly to those who have completed both the ride and the safety side theory. Sorry no pictures I was not able to cycle and take pictures.
This is our last week before the Summer Holidays and we had a Teddy Bear's picnic. We played games outside and then had a picnic - the Beavers were given a hot dog, a biscuit and a packet of crisps and a drink. The weather was kind to us on both nights. On the Wednesday we said good bye to Joe, Tommy and Arthur. We wish them every success in Cubs and hope they enjoy their time with the Group.
This week we had a visit from one of the volunteers from the Stretford Food Bank. She explained to the Beavers about the people who attend and how they have to be referred to them to get access to the food. She also explained what sort of foods they would like to be donated. Each Beaver was asked to bring an item of food next week, which will be donated to the food bank. Following this the Beavers were given a 'spot the difference' sheet and on the back of the sheet was a reminder of the items that can be donated.
