Beaver scouts are held on Monday evening from 6:00pm until 7:00pm. During this time we run an active, fun filled programme. The age range of beavers is between 6 and 8, on reaching the age of 8 they will then go up into cub scouts.
Lesley Moores is the appointed leader, she is assisted by Pauline Ross (Assistant Beaver Leader) and by Chris Hindley, (Assistant Cub Scout Leader) who helps the children who are ready to move up to Cubs so they have a friendly face when they start.
In local scouting there are no paid leaders, everything is done on a voluntary basis. We need at least 3 adults to run a beaver colony the size of ours and in the absence of additional permanent help we ask that all parents/guardians help out when possible. Any person who helps on a regular basis needs to complete a scout application form, which includes the DBS (formerly CRB.)
Investiture is when children formally join Beavers, this is once they have an understanding about beavers and what happens. They will then be presented with their group badges and the necker. To be invested they will need to have a beaver uniform, which is a turquoise sweatshirt. Above all else we hope that your child will have fun and find new friends in Beavers.
